17.3.9 The Walker's Tongue

The Walker's Tongue is designed to test your ability to think quickly on your feet. The contest changes from trial to trial, and the following is the current contest:


Participants are broken into groups of two. Each heat consists of 5 rounds. Each group of two competes against each other in a single heat, and the winner moves on. The contest is single elimination. In the event of an odd group, it is possible that there will be three people in a single heat, in which case it will be the first to five points.

Each round is as follows. The first player says a letter. The second player says a second letter. The idea is that you are constructing a word backwards.

Letters are exchanged until one player feels the other isn't making a real word, at which time he or she says "The Walker's got your tongue!" The challenged player needs to state their word, or admit he or she didn't have one.  If the challenge is valid, and no word exists, then the challenger gets a point. If a word does exist, the challenged gets the point. Best of five wins the heat.

Rules about words: No blatantly OOC words (velcro, computer, etc.) In the case of a judgement call, the event coordinator will make that call. No offensive words, nor proper nouns. English and Aetolian words only, but either American or English standardized spellings are valid.

Each person will have 45 seconds to say a letter, or they will lose the round automatically.
