Aargh! The one that's missing is the last one on my list, so I must have inadvertently not highlighted it when I cut and pasted it.

The last entry in the Associated Word list was supposed to be Good Morning. That should fill in a missing trio pretty easily.

Sorry about that.

Glad you enjoyed it! I had a lot of fun putting this one together.

And, for once, I don't have another one ready to go. But soon....

I was going to make a long heartfelt post about how much these games have helped me the last few months, through cancer surgery and qualifying exams, and such.

Instead, I'll just say thanks again. This was a genius-level game.

OMG, I LOVED this game!!

Wonderful, and to quote Mr K, "genius level."

And having everyone work on partials together was, like, we were all in the room working it.

Wow, that means a lot to me. Now you really make me wish I had another one ready to go. (But soon.)

I've actually been working on something (An LSWE idea that blew up out of control) since right before you posted your last lyrics game. I've been slacking off on it a lot the last week or so, but with plenty of free time on my hands over the next week, I'm going to try to see if I can finish it by Monday. It won't be genius-level obviously, but if it comes out like I hope, it should provide some fun...

I dunno. You have come up with by far the cleverest ideas I've seen for LS games, and that includes bar trivia with sound rounds. Just because you don't favor the sprawling, 150-items at a time doesn't make your games any less genius. I'll look forward to it!
