(Yes, we have kept this thread going for over a year and I sometimes forget to go back and check the old answers to preclude duplications; however, the occasional one must be excused. Sometimes we also have ran out of similies and have had to start over. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

Asteroth: To lessen your confusion, here is the game format:

No, Word A = Definition B (Words A and B must rhyme or spell similarly)
No, Word B = Definition C (Words B and C should ...)
No, Word C = Definition D (Words C and D should ...)

Naw, missed is the noise my cat made she saw the dog and raised her hackles.

Nope, hissed is what my girlfriend did to me in the prom night.

No, to kissed is to wrap two things around each other, also The Kissed was an ancient dance promoted by Chubby Checker.


No, it list is how a cat takes a bath with its tongue.
No, kick is how I feel when my temperature is 102C.
Asteroth:
Explain it simple, hmmm?

Quote:
Naw, missed is the noise my cat made she saw the dog and raised her hackles.


The word missed does not fit the definition: the noise my cat made (when) whe saw the dog and raised her hackles.
We know the word which fits that definition is hissed.
So the next person takes the word hissed then gives it a definition which fits another word which ryhmes with hissed:

Quote:
Nope, hissed is what my girlfriend did to me in the prom night.


We know that kissed not hissed fits the definition of: what my girlfriend did to me in the prom night.

So not you take the correct word kissed and put with it the definition of another word that rhymes:

Quote:
No, to kissed is to wrap two things around each other, also The Kissed was an ancient dance promoted by Chubby Checker


In this case the word which matches this definition is twist
...and so on and so on and....

I hope that clarifies it. It is one of those things that is really hard to explain in simple terms.
fraid not, Rhodry, prick is what how I like my bread cut.
Whoops, I deleted Asteroth's post by mistake. Anyway I recovered it so here it is:

Quote:
Ok! After Nell explained the game to me (It took quite a while for me to understand) i now know how to play and wanna join.Here;

Nope, Dick is what my house is built of...(Stupid)
Our trusty language filter altered Asteroth's answer as we must actually substitute D*ck with Richard. However, yes I do believe you've got it, Asteroth.

No, brick is the action I do with my computer mouse.
Quote:
Nope, a new click is something you can't teach an old dog!


No, a trick is a baby hen.

Now Ringfacwen, your response can fit in here:

Quote:
Nah, a chick is that twangy taste in a cherry coke.


Nope, stick is how you move something from your fingernail to the wall. To make a light, quick snapping stroke with (a whip, etc.).
I saw a flick of birds in my garden yesterday.
Naw, if it looks like a dock, and quacks like a dock, and it waddles like a dock, it probably is a dock.
no, a duck is that noise that the chicken makes or maybe its the noise that a duck makes when it's feeling sick, but I think chickens usually make that noise
