    Default Vocabulary Game, Let's Play!

    1. You post a word and its meaning.

    2. Another forumer uses the last letter of the word to create a new word, with meaning of course.

    Example: Spasmodic - Happening intermittently; fitful.

    Conjure - To call or bring to mind; evoke.


    So Folks to start, this is my word.

    Dystopia - An imaginary place or state in which the condition of life is extremely bad, as from deprivation, oppression, or terror.
