(MAJOR EDIT: Totally revising the instructions)

This is an attempt at a forum/PM version of the game Telephone. Whoever wants to be first, post a message on the forum stating so ("request to receive"). First one to post gets a PM from me, with a long sentence (or two). Then once you (Player 1) receive it, you PM it back to me, but you have modified the sentence according to the rules below. After that, either you or I can post on the forum, saying that we are ready for the next person. Then the first person to post a request becomes Player 2, and receives the modified version of the sentence from me. Player 2 modifies the sentence again, and PM's it back to me. I think you get the idea now. After Player 12 makes his modification and PM's it back to me, I post to the forum all 13 lines, from the original statement, through all 12 modifications. After I make that post the first to request becomes Player 1 of the next game!

To modify the sentence you must do three of the following types of mods:
1. Change a word to a word that sounds at least somewhat similar. It can rhyme, or change a vowel sound, or just anything that would be commonly considered a similar sounding word. "Cost" can become "kissed," or "cast," or "lost," or "tossed," etc.
2. Delete any one word. (Do not let it go below 10 words though.)
3. Add a word anywhere.

Again, you make THREE changes, but they don't have to be different types of mods. They can all be Type 1, or all Type 3, etc.

NOTE: If it has been 24 hours since I PM'ed the sentence to the current player, and he has not replied, I will post that his turn has expired and someone else can request to take the turn away ("request to intercept").

Any questions? Just ask. You can ask questions or make statements anytime even if it's someone else's turn, but you may not post anything about the sentence or PM anyone else about the sentence.

Game 1 Begins. Standing by for a request to receive.

EDIT: Oh, and you have to wait at least 4 more turns before having another turn. So, for example, if you are Player 4 you can't be Player 5 (obviously) or 6, 7, or 8.

Lol I like how everyone puts a question mark, like "uhhh?" Yeah, this game is confusing and awkward so far, but we'll see how it goes.

Ok now we're through 3 turns, so we're a quarter of the way there! By the way, just so everyone knows, I'm being rather lenient on the changes. Some people are making changes that are technically like 4 or 5 changes instead of 3, but I like it so don't worry about following the rules strictly. I'll just say, make "a few" changes.

We're done with the fifth turn now, so awaiting more requests... hopefully all different people. 'Cause if someone sees the sentence twice it will sort of spoil the surprise for them when the whole thing is listed at the end of the game.
