Dropout: The All-New Word Game!

So, last night as I was trying to get to sleep (spoiler alert: it didn’t happen), my curious and hyperactive mind created a brand new word game, which I’m calling DROPOUT.

How to Play:

1. Start with a 7-letter word. For example, dropout.

2. Drop the first letter of the word and replace it with another. Using the example word above, I would drop d and replace it with to get outcrop.

3. (Here’s where it gets tricky). Take the second letter of the original word (which is r), drop and replace. From outcrop, I would drop the and add an to create copouts (or octopus, actually).

4. Keep dropping letters of the original word, in order, until you have a completely original 7-letter word. Then, congratulations! You win!

Here’s the chain I made for dropout:

DROPOUT – D + C =

OUTCROP – R + S =

COPOUTS – O + A =

UPCOAST – P + N =

TOUCANS – O + H =

STAUNCH – U + E =

CHASTEN – T + G =

CHANGES. (Ironic!)

And voila! There you have it.

Some auxiliary rules:

1. You do not have to use all new letters. You can replace a letter with one you’ve already used or dropped.

2. You can use the same letter more than once in a word.

3. Proper nouns are not allowed, but plurals are.

4. Your final word can share letters with the original word, provided they’ve been dropped and readded.

To all you word gamers/procrastinators out there: it came from my brain, and you’re welcome.

Have a great morning.
