To form a new word by adding and rearranging letters.
How to play
This game moves in the opposite direction of Regressive Anagrams. Players choose a word at random. This can be accomplished by opening a book to a random page and selecting the first word on that page. After this word is written down, the first player adds a letter and rearranges the letters to form a new word. The next player does the same and so on, until players can no longer form new words. The last player to have successfully formed a new word is the winner. Alternatively, the first word must be a one-letter word like A or I so that the second word is two letters in length, and so on.
Andrew and Bennett randomly select the word TO from a book and agree that whoever wins the first round gets to choose the first word for the next round. They flip a coin to see who gets to add the first letter. Bennett wins, adding N to make NOT. Here is the complete progression of the first round:
Bennett cannot think of any letter to add to ADROITNESS to form a new word, so Andrew wins this round.
And so on.
