I understand that there is a Forum game that has this idea but for Pokemon species names.

Why not English words? I have noticed some people saying "Sorry for my bad English" in their posts so perhaps this could be a -gasp- educational game.

If you cannot think of a word, the previous poster wins and you should gracefully congratulate them.

I was introduced to this game from a forum on Fanfiction.net and it was thought of in 2007.

I'd like to see this thread get used and find out how good everyone's vocabulary is. :]

Rules

1. Use English words only (I suppose British English is acceptable ;])

2. Also post the definition of the word you use as you remember it. If you want, write a sentence illustrating the definition.

3. No using the -ing suffix. It is a cheap way to win.

4. Please do not use a dictionary to come up with words, use your brain instead.

5. If someone has won, please don't start the next chain with a winning word, then it is unfair for the next player.


The first word is:

Cooperative

(Being willing to work with another person or being, can be used to describe a living being or an inanimate object)

The printer was being cooperative with the secretary and did not require any percussive maintenance to fulfill its purpose.

Redundant.

(not or no longer needed or useful; superfluous.)

It is redundant to mention the same information after repeating it countless times already.
