In analogies,

: means "is to"
:: means "as"

An analogy looks like this:

hot : fire :: cold : ice

Hot is to fire, as cold is to ice. Anything that is a logical proportion of words works.

In this game, you have an analogy, with the final thing left blank. The next person fills in the blank and then uses the right half of the whole thing for the left half of a new one, leaving the fourth spot blank again.

So, if I were given:

hot : fire :: cold : _____

I would say:

hot : fire :: cold : ice

cold : ice :: funny : _____

And with that, we begin. Someone fill in the blank.


The first is the only to ever have been the only.
