    Soo... The title of this game is definitely a placeholder, but that's just because I'm not sure what to call it. I'm also not exactly sure how well this will go, but I want to try it anyway because why not?

    So the rules are going to sound a bit complicated, but I'm sure it will be easy to understand when we actually get going.


    The first player in a round will post [Start], a number, and three, five or seven letters. The number will serve as a sort of countdown. The next person will post a word that starts with one of the letters listed in the first person's post, the next number in the countdown, and another set of three, five, or seven letters. When the countdown reaches zero, the last person responds with a word, the number zero, and a story where all the words listed by all the previous players of the round (including their own) are used in the order they appear. They then call out someone who participated, who will then start the next round.

    Have an example round to wrap your heads around what all that word salad means:

    Player 1:
    [Start]
    3

    A E X D G
    -------
    Player 2:
    Dog


    2

    M Y C
    -------
    Player 3:
    Counter


    1

    I O P N S B L
    -------
    Player 4:
    Steak


    0

    The dog jumped in the counter and ate the steak

    Player 2, you start next.
    -------
    Note: The words don't all have to be nouns, this was just the first example I thought of


    With all that out of the way, let me start first:

    [Start]
