NEW GAME - MISSING LINK - A Creative Thinking Game of Associations

(NOTE: This thread is for THIS game ONLY.  All other games can be played here: http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=34043.0)

Rules:
1.  You need to figure out the ONE or TWO word Missing Link which connects two separate game words, word1--> Missing Link--> word2.

2.  The Missing Link must be somehow associated to word1 AND to word2.  (see examples below)

3.  Any member can guess the Missing Link by posting this:  link="Missing Link guess"?

4.  The Poster of the correct Missing Link gets to post the new word2 in the following format:
  • word1= "old word2"
  • word2= "OP's new word"
5.  The Poster of word2 is encouraged to give hints if members have difficulty finding the Missing Link (until it is so easy that a member gets it).

6.  In case the current OP of the riddle is offline or not responding, any logical Missing Link guess that is posted and then seconded
     by another member is good enough to win that riddle.  The OP member who thought of the link can CMIIW.  This way we don't have to wait.

7.  3MR=The 3 Minute Rule:  The member correctly guessing the Missing Link has 3 minutes to post word2, otherwise any member may post it in order to keep the game flowing.



This is not just a free flow association game, but rather, each pair of words is its own new, challenging riddle to be solved before continuing.

Example:   If Riddle#1 were "Sunday-->Superbowl-->cereal"   then   Riddle#2 could be "cereal-->spoon-->fork"
       In Riddle#1, if a member correctly guesses the Missing Link for word2 of "cereal", then "cereal" now becomes new word1 in Riddle#2.
       The member then thinks of a Missing Link to a new word2 and posts the new word2.   (The guessed link DOES NOT become word2.) 

Possibilities:
Word1Word2LinkLevel
cereal,fork-you eat cereal with a spoon, which is a utensil just like a fork (easy)
cereal,cow-you eat cereal with milk, which comes from a cow (easy)
cereal,soup-you eat cereal in a bowl, as you do soup (easy)
cereal,lane-you eat cereal in a bowl, and you bowl down a lane (moderate)
cereal,hear-cereal starts with "see", which is one of the 5 senses, as is hear (moderate)
cereal,bounce-cereal ends with "roll", which is an action like bounce (moderate)
cereal,trout-cereal sounds like "sole", which is a fish, like trout (hard)
cereal,celery-cereal is crunchy, just like celery (hard)

Ready?  I propose we start off with easy/moderate until members feel comfortable joining.

NOTE: Players agree to ignore any posts that do not comply with the rules, and instead, to refer those posters to the wiki.

NEW GAME:  MISSING LINK     A Creative Thinking Game of Associations


Rules
1.  You need to figure out the Missing Link which connects two separate game words, word #1-->Missing Link-->word #2

2.  The Missing Link can be any association to word#1 and any association to word#2.  (see examples below)

3.  Any member can guess the Missing Link by posting:  link=Missing Link guess?

4.  The OP of the correct Missing Link gets to post the new word#2 in the following format:
            link=Missing Link guess   AND
            new word #2

5. Each OP of word#2 is encouraged to give hints if members have difficulty finding the Missing Link.



This is not just a free flow association game, but rather each pair of words is its own new riddle to be solved before continuing.
   
Examples:   If a member correctly guesses the Missing Link for word#2 of cereal, then cereal now becomes new word#1 and the member needs to create a Missing Link to a new word#2 and post new word#2.

New word#1 is cereal
       If link=fork,       new word#2 could be      spoon   (easy)            cereal>you eat with a fork>fork is a utensil like spoon                     
       If link=milk,       new word#2 could be      cow      (easy)            cereal>you eat with milk>milk comes from a cow                     
       If link=bowl       new word#2 could be      soup     (easy)            cereal>goes in a bowl>a bowl is a how you eat soup                     
       If link=bowl       new word#2 could be      lane     (moderate)     cereal>goes in a bowl>you bowl down a lane                     
       If link=see          new word#2 could be      hear     (moderate)   cereal>starts with the syllable 'ce'>'see' is a sense like hear                     
       If link=roll          new word#2 could be      bounce (harder)         cereal> ends sounding like roll>roll is an action like bounce                     
       If link=sole         new word #2 could be    trout    (hard)            cereal> sort of sounds like sole> sole is a fish like trout                   
       If link=crunchy  new word #2 could be     celery   (moderate)    cereal>can be crunchy>crunchy is also celery


Ready?  I propose we start off with easy/moderate until members feel comfortable joining.  Also, before we give the answer maybe we can go back and forth a few times with a hint, then an easier hint if needed, to allow members more time and geshmak of solving the Missing Link riddle.


I propose that any logical link=Missing Link guess that is posted is good enough to continue the game and the original member who thought of the link can CMIIW.  This way we don't have to wait.

Conversion. You have to add 1 and then convert 4 to written out form, four.

Next word 5

Please do not spam game threads, if you do not wish to play then just stay off. If you remember it was very annoying when other members were spamming the game that you were playing.
