    Compression....the word game!

    Its easier to give an example of how it works than to explain it...

    I would say

    Set
    Shine
    Rise

    What word can you put with those words to make a familure phrase. The answer...

    Sun Set
    Sunshine
    Sun rise

    It cannot be a prefix..such as "Re" in Recommit, Rediret, and Resign.

    So..wanna play? Who ever guesses gets to go next.


    I'll start it off with an easy one.

    Father
    Prix
    Piano

    You're right in your answer and the fact that someone else should play.
    I'm backing out for now...

    Damn, you're good ! I thought that would slow you down. I know the answer to yours but will leave it for someone else to play with now that we've shown everyone else how to do it. Gotta go cook , I'm hungry.
