Relay, is a kind of sports where each team member needs to contribute so the run can be completed. Relay baton is handover to another person so he can continue with holding the baton and run.

The game rule is like this:

For each round, when I put on a word, the game starts. You should change only 1 letter from the word to make the word to another meaningful word. And then you change another letter again to for it another word. If you meet to the dead end and up to no choice, then you can change 2 letters and by then you will need to deduct 1 point. If you change 3 letters then 2 points will be deducted from your score, and so on. Until you make a full series of 20 words, like this:

Start: ice
Ace (change ‘i’ to ‘a’)
Act (change ‘e’ to ‘t’)
Ant
And
Aid
Hid
Hit
.... until you got 20. By then, you will get 20 points.

In case at the ‘hit’ you can’t make any more single-letter change (I know, I know we can use ‘hat’ but just assume you can’t, ok?), you have to change 2 letters so you decide to change from ‘hit’ to ‘cat’. You are changing ‘h’ and ‘I’ to ‘c’ and ‘a’, so you minus 1 points.

Sounds easy? Well here is the challenge:

Before every round start, every player needs to submit me 4 words according to my instruction (eg. 4 letters, 5 letters etc)

And those become the trap along the relay!

Anyone hit 1 trap, will lose 1 point, and transferred the points to the player who set the word.

For example,

hit
cat <- (change 2 letter, so lose 1 point)
Fat <- (dang! player B set this as the trap, so you lose 1 points and B gain 1 point)
Fan


At the end of each round. I will list down everyone’s answer, boldfaced where you hit the traps and calculate your score (How many you score due to complete to 20? How many score you loose because you change more than 1 letter at a time? How many score do you lose because of hit the traps? How many score do you gain for people steps on your traps? etc).


Method of Winning

Method 1 - Elimination
The lowest group will be eliminated.

How many been eliminated? Let’s depend on the number of participants:
Let’s say:

If 16 and above, each round eliminate 5
If 11 – 15, then each round eliminate 4
If left 7 – 10, then each round eliminate 3
If left 4-6, then each round eliminate 2
If left 3, then eliminate 1
Final round….still thinking of the method, maybe is let those who are eliminated one set the traps. Who ever hit the trap least will win!

Method 2 – Let's play together
Or, if you don’t wish to have the elimination system (Mafia’s way) then we just do it cumulative way.

Which mean no matter how many participants we have, all go through the same number of rounds. Add up all the point gain from each round, to see who is the winner! By this, everyone has the same chance to play all the rounds :D

I think that the elimination system is better because if we play, I don't know how many rounds, and we will have to wait every time until everyone PMs, we will play this game till April!
I think it's more dramatic that way ;)

Or maybe we should try couple of rounds where no one gets kicked out to see how it works.



About the trap system... I think we should just see how it goes :) and then decide what to do.

I agree. Didn't the last game take over a month or something? :o
