The start word of the title is determined by the end word of the previous title. "The' and "A" don't count as words. Below is #232 played off of (Brotherhood) in #230. The first title of the next set of three titles should start with Lover and continue using the last word of the title.

SassyLassy your first entry is right, but the second one should also start with lover.

I hope this helps. Read some of the entries above and I think that will help establish the pattern.

Is the alternate fiction / non fiction rule being abandoned here by some tacit general consensus? There are a lot of posts not following it.

Edited: Mar 1, 2015, 12:56pm Top

"...ALTERNAT(ING) fiction/non fiction Rule. . .?" (265)

I canʻt find the original rules for this game in
the most recent pages of it. Iʻve been assuming
that "...fiction/non fiction" means that
BOTH fiction AND non-fiction are eligible
for each of the 3 titles.
(I love the phrase "Tacit general
consensus"! Never thought I would be, as
I seem to be here, part of one.)
