    Ok, this game sounds interesting, the rules are simple:

    3. No flood
    4. No porn
    5. All other rules that haven't been mentioned above

    B. In-Game Rules:
    1.The first user has to pick a random consonant from the alphabet and give a domain of discussion for the next user(the one who will post): Sports, Entertaiment, Education, Research, Politics, etc.

    2.The next user firstly has to post the phrase in which HE HAS TO AVOID TYPING THE CONSONANT MENTIONED BY THE USER ABOVE and the phrase/sentence has to be linked with the domain the above user had chosen.

    Starting Example:

    User 1:

    Um, doesn't "fast" use the consonant s? Or do you mean we can use the consonant, but we can't start a word with it?


    Going with D and Sports:



    Tennis is challenging because although you're just hitting a ball, you have to hit it just right or it will either not go far enough or go too far. It is also tiring because you have to run a lot.

    Consonant: F
    Domain: Foreign Language

    If the consonant is encountered in one word of that phrase, you have to avoid that word, or you can avoid only the consonant IF the word resulted from the elimination belongs to the English dictionary. (i.e.:Consonant S: "fast"--->"fat")

    The ranger sees a mysterious egg that comes from the sea and doesn't know what it is at first. I don't know what goes on after that in the games.

    Consonant: T
    Domain: Computers

    Neither my sister nor I understood that, I'm afraid. You mean we 1. come up with any phrase, even if it has the consonant, but 2. if there is a word in it that does have the consonant, we only avoid the word if wouldn't become another real word (i.e. a word found in the dictionary) without it?

    Or if it would become another real word?

    Or do we replace the original word, if it wouldn't become another real word without the consonant (like "soon"), with another word that either 1. avoids the consonant (like "quickly") or 2. has the consonant but would become another real word without it (like "fast")?

    Because what you're saying (AVOID TYPING THE CONSONANT MENTIONED BY THE USER ABOVE/avoid the word with the consonant only if it would turn into another real word) and what you're showing ("fast" can be used because it would turn into another real word ["fat"] without the consonant) are two different things.
