I found this game on a local forum, and think it could work well on Gransnet.

Rules:
1. Player posts a long word.
2. Next player makes three words from the long word.
3. Then makes up a sentence using the three words, with preferably at least 3 letters.
4. Posts a long word for the next player.

So, let's play smile
