The name of the game is "Word by Word Story"

Rules:
1. The Story is ongoing.
2. Each poster may add one word.
3. At least two other posters must post before you can contribute again.

*Have fun, and I hope this doesn't fail so quickly like my last attempt at a game.

**First poster (besides me) get to start the story.

EDIT: Punctuation is not necessary, but if you must it does not count as a word (just to specify.)

Not to derail the thread, but more in a way of being informative.....

I wanted to continue the game by posting simply 'a', as in...One time in a (land far away, or whatever).
The forum code would not allow me to simply post 'a'....
It came back with a popup saying I had to have a message to make a post.
So, the letter 'a' is not considered a word.
This could be a problem in the context of this game.....
In other words, if somebody were trying to post 'There was an old lady who lived in a shoe' word by word, you could not do it.
So, you might have to allow anything following 'a' to count as a single word.
As in 'a land' or 'a shoe'.

Just so's ya know. Carry on, then.

One time in the.......
