Distraction

@2292843

Lol - now I see what happened, and why the same rhyme is repeated again and again; you can, of course, use the following alphabetical letter for your rhyming word - congrats.

And you are free to re-use your "rhyming word" as given word, as long as there are enough rhyming options.

I'll try to bring a little change. smile smilie

Too early for "prediction" - but I had a little change in mind - lol.

1st Word:

Attraction

@Marianne 1st Word: Attraction

Will this clarification help?

Examples
Start: ......A = Attraction:
rhyming word "fraction" + B = Brush: (same user)
rhyming word "crush" (brush) + C = Crumble: (same user)
rhyming word "grumble" (crumble) + D = Dream: (same user)
rhyming word "cream" (dream) + E = Ease: (same user)
rhyming word "please (ease) ...........

I know, my information was confusing: kidding was the word to be rhymed, for instance with "bidding".

And "love" is correct; it the word in alphabetical order, which you are proposing for a rhyming word.

trust

rush

@S_Tirta trust rush

Thank you, Suyanto - I know that my information is not clear.

You had to find a rhyme for "briefcase", like "suitcase", for instance, and then, add a word of your choice, beginning with "p", and for which there are rhyming words.
Example: "Price"
If you need help, don't hesitate to ask!

@Caitlyn Bright Quiet

Nearly perfect, thank you, Caitlyn. Your word for the next user should start with "G".

Don't worry - I created the mess with unclear explanations; some practice, and all will be smooth.
l smilie

Suggestion:
Gown

@Caitlyn I thought it was supposed to start with Q cuz the previous word started with P

Yes, I didn't explain the game correctly; the word you receive for rhyming is following the alphabetical order, but your rhyming word does not need to follow the alphabetical order. Then you add a "rhymable" word of your choice, according to the alphabetical order (G was on, in my answer, I took H; if you are on, you will have I to "give further", after having entered your rhyming word). I know, my explanations sound complicated, and all of us need some practice.
I added a series of examples at the beginning - it might help.
Take it easy and don't worry. l smilie

Juxtaposition (that's as close as I could get)

@Masha Juxtaposition (that's as close as I could get)

Don't worry; I am afraid that my explanation confused everybody.

The rhyming word was needed for "implosion", for instance "explosion". Now, you choose any word beginning with j, and "juxtaposition" is fine.

Action, Passion

@EternalSailorSol Action, Passion

How nice to see you, Eternal Sailor!
May I explain the game to you?

It is a rhyming game, and you have to find the rhyme for the last word given by the previous player, in your case, you got "bowling". A rhyme for bowling could be "howling", for instance,

Howling

And now, you have to enter a word, which can be rhymed, starting with letter "C", as the word for the following player is given in alphabetical order, for instance

CRAWL - ( C )

I'll continue, according to this suggestion (see below). And don't worry to ask, if something is not clear and enjoy.

Now, you will need a rhyming word for daring, and a word (of your choice), which can be rhymed, and that starts with letter "E".

And welcome to this game! smile smilie

@EternalSailorSol kettle Little - ( L )

Hello, Eternal Sailor, don't give up - if I am not clear enough with my explanations, just ask.

@EternalSailorSol kettle Little - ( L )

Good try - "little" is a good idea, you only need to find the rhyme for knuckle (any initial is allowed), like buckle, chuckle, etc. It would be nice to see you participate. smile smilie

"Invited" seems like a much better choice. Thank you for the suggestion. smile smilie
I don't know why I thought of "frighted"; actually, I even had to check if it existed in the first place xp smilie. And it does, but it's from the archaic verb "to fright" (of which a more modern alternative is "to frighten").

@Thinkerbell Very commendable. The additives in ramen noodles are a dietary nightmare.

It depends on what you add.

@Marianne It depends on what you add. And myself, I would not add certain ingredients.

@Thinkerbell But ramen noodles usually come with a packet of ingredients that no one should consume, at least not in those...

Yes, we are aware here since a certain time that lots of industrially prepared foods contain too much salt and sugar, including unhealthy additives and preparation processes. Conventional noodles take much longer to cook. By the way, avoid ketchup and soda drinks - they are real sugar "bombs".

@Marianne Lol - an interesting term. Congratulations. Actually, you could also use sterling, pearling, or darling; dearling...

That's good to know. Not being very familiar with how rhymes work in English, I wasn't very sure if "darling" counted as a rhyme for "yearling". xp smilie Thank you for the suggestions. smile smilie

@primeiro That's good to know. Not being very familiar with how rhymes work in English, I wasn't very sure if "darling"...

You're welcome; there are many kinds of rhymes, and most of the time, phonetic rhymes are preferred, although readers like to see also spelling rhymes. But it should not bee too difficult to allow everybody to participate. It is a good exercise - for the vocabulary, the spelling and the pronunciation. And, between the USA, England, Australia, Scotland, Canada, Ireland, etc. vocabulary, pronunciation and spelling can vary.

@primeiro Both are interesting words! There is "transversal" with the same meaning in Portuguese, and I guess "traversal" is...

In English, traversal is rather used in techn(olog)ical vocabularies with a specific meaning (graph traversal, tree traversal, etc.) - the roots are the same, but the definition changed, if you refer to the verb to cross), while transversal is the less common synonym for transverse, which is widely used in many domains.

The ending "ard" is already good. It was indeed not easy. smile smilie

But I thought of pilchard or sardine, like the

@Marianne Talking XANTHOUS - ( X ) - (for yellow or yellowish)

That's an interesting word, "xanthous".
There are some botanics-related words in my language that start with "xanto", also meaning "yellow".

@primeiro That's an interesting word, "xanthous". There are some botanics-related words in my language that start with...

Yes, your answers are excellent: "xanthous" or "xanth(o)-" is from the Ancient Greek and stands for yellow, i.e. ξανθός ‎(xanthós), and rhizanthous, with acanthous, was one of the rhymes, I was thinking of. y smiliesmile smilie

Interesting, I never realized that this word "aisle" was spelled with an "a"! English is full of surprises. :P

For a rhyme just in sound, I think "isle" could also pair up with "smile".

@primeiro Interesting, I never realized that this word "aisle" was spelled with an "a"! English is full of surprises. :P For...

The pronunciation is the same; it is the spelling, which differs.

@primeiro lol, I kind of made it up to mean "cell-devouring", but without knowing if it exists or not.

Oh yes, I see, from "-phagos" or "phagein" (verb for to eat). But the endings (-ous, -ic, -ical, -ian, etc.) in English, might cause some problems - lol. smile smiliehehe smilie

@SmartAZ No comprene sus instructiones. Boy, do I feel stupid!

Excuse me SmartAZ; if something is not clear, you don't need to feel stupid, as my info is a bit awkward. Just ask for an example. If you are interested in this game, I will try to explain it again. (By the way, your Spanish is promising, just a little correction: "No comprendo sus instrucciones.")

The given rhyme is
SACK

You can use any word with a close or near rhyme, for instance:

Pack

Then, you give any word, which can be rhymed (end rhyme), and which starts with a "T" (in alphabetical order, as the last to be used was "S"), like, for instance:

TRAIL - ( T )

See the following posts. Thank you.
