Hi Gamers,
Hope you are having a nice Sunday.
I have an idea for a different type of word game. I don't know if it is necessary because we have enough word games or are some of you interested in a new game?

This is a game I made up and I have played it with DH a few times. These are the instructions. So let's see how it can work.
You pick random letters but exclude vowels. So it could be as follows.
T C P L B W N L D R H M. It doesn't matter if you use a letter more then once.

Then each player has to make words from the given letters adding in your own vowels. The one rule is the letters have to be in the order they are written out. So an example could be ladder using the letters LDR in the same order and adding in the vowels a and e. I guess because it is online the way we could be competitive is once the letters are selected each player has to try and make the longest word with the letters using whichever vowels they want. Obviously the word also should be correctly spelt.
You also cannot skip letters even in the same order so using the above example if your word starts with a W it could be win using the w and n but it cannot be window using the w, then n then d because there is an L in between.
The random letters can be changed each day or even twice a day. Whatever you want.

I hope I have explained it. Should we try.
The amount of letters we use is up to you Ima's.

I think instead of finding the longest word, let's make a list of any words of 4 letters or more from the list of letters. So to recap. You use the letters in the same order and add your own vowels.

The letters are: F P H S C L N T M R S L

The first 3 words are: 1. Team 2. Clean 3. More

Who is next

Thank you. It's a brilliant game - it really makes one use their mind, and that's what I like - stimulating my mind.

Thank you "Rugelech" for posting it.

Thanks for your kind words. There are more words there that I noticed only after I posted.
I didn't want to add to my list, I want to give other players a chance.

Also, "dankbar," when I read your excellent word 'succulent' I realized what "Rugelech" meant when she wrote one can use the same letter twice - in succulent - double c.

Great game!

I added more words you can check it out.

Between the two of us let's see if someone can find even more words

"dankbar," your list is absolutely excellent. I always noticed that you are good with words.

I didn't know if the letter 'y' is allowed since it's a silent vowel, so I didn't use it. There are plenty of words there if one can use 'y'.
"Rugelech,"kindly confirm.

Also, I think the word 'tomorrow' is out b/c there isn't a W after the R. I also wanted to write tomorrow then I realized it's wrong.

I'm not adding more words b/c, personally, I'm not viewing this game as a competition but just fun, and fun it is. And I want to give other players a chance too.
okay just 2 words - morsel

W is also considered a silent vowel like y.

When we learned vowels in school, we had a song a e I o u & sometimes w & y.

In tommorrow it's used as a vowel but not in the word water. Same for y, not in word year, where you hear the sound.

I am amazed at your word power.

I'm not in competition with you, just was trying not to reuse your words, so I had to work a little harder
