Fun For One (Or More!)

All's fair, whether cloudy or fair....

Add one, drop one, or change one....

Take a familiar title (book, movie, song, play, etc.) and change just one letter by either adding a letter, dropping a letter, or changing a letter.

For example: "Arsenic And Old Lice" (play) or "Fanny Girl" (movie) or "Abode With Me" (hymn) or "Gone With The Wand"....for Halloween....Etc.

You can only add, drop, or change one letter.

Adding one letter might be "Beauty And The Beasty."

Dropping one letter might be "Wet Side Story."

Changing one letter might be "Tar And Peace."

If playing as a group, have members compete to be the first to name the original title, song, phrase, etc.

If playing alone, for example while driving alone on a long trip, see if you can come up with some humorous changes, or other categories of changes you can make.

As far as mind games go, this is one of mine games. Enjoy.



We needed the moisture. Thanks.

I love the game but right now my mind is still wound from the week's work schedule. I am afraid my creativity dulls in comparison to yours, dear friend. How fun you make this sound!

teaches12345 - All work and no play? Even writers need a rest now and then, but this could seem like work after wrestling with words all day. ; - )

aviannovice - I have the feeling that life around you would never be boring. Am I misled?
