Irregular Items Chain Game

Friday, 09 September 2011   |   Creativity Challenges

Bag of itemsYour creativity challenge this week is to see the items around you in creative ways.  Most items have a regular name but we can also be creative in how we name or describe them.  For instance a pen could also be called a writing implement or a barrel or ink or a doodling device.  Join us on a wordy adventure and let's see just how creative you can be.

Here's what you need to do to participate in this challenge:

  1. Visit this page every day for a week. (you can continue longer if you wish)
  2. Note the last letter of the item in the last comment on the page.
  3. You must now come up with a creative name for something you can see around you.  The catch is that its name must start with the letter you obtained in step 2.
  4. Leave a comment below with what you came up with.

The point of this challenge is to get you to see the world around you in a creative light.  Your aim is to see the world not for what it is directly but for what it could be.  With a bit of creativity I'm sure you can come up with many fun and entertaining names for many mundane, everyday items.

To get us started the first commenter can use the last letter from the following random word:
