The Song Title Transformation Game (one word at a time)

The object of this particular game is to transform one song title into another, one word at a time! Each player may have an idea about what he wants to transform the song title into, but he may end up getting thwarted by his fellow players, who may have their own ideas as to what to transform the original song title into!

In addition to being able to substitute one word for another (and only one), the players also have the add/subtract option, being able to either add yet another word or delete a word if there are fewer words in their intended title. But you can't substitute words AND use your add/subtract option in the same turn!

The best way for me to describe how to play this is to provide a series of examples...
____________________

PLAYER #1 starts things off with:

Girls, Girls, Girls - Motley Crue
____________________

Being more a fan of Duran Duran than the Crue, PLAYER #2 decides to change Girls, Girls, Girls into Girls On Film.

girls to on

girls on girls
____________________

But PLAYER #2's plans are about to go slightly awry when PLAYER #3, being a Journey fan, decides to make yet another change...

girls to radio

girls on radio
____________________

You know what they say about best-laid plans! PLAYER #4, a Buggles fan, decides to make his own change...

on to killed

girls killed radio
____________________

At this point, PLAYER #2 has the exact same idea as PLAYER #4, and so he decides to help the process along. Instead of substituting one word for another, he uses his add/subtract option!

adds the

girls killed the radio
____________________

PLAYER #4 is more than happy to have an ally! He makes the next move...

girls to video

video killed the radio
____________________

And at this point, PLAYER #3 is more than happy to join in and use his add/subtract option to complete the transformation!

adds star

Video Killed The Radio Star - The Buggles
____________________

So we start off with Motley Crue's Girls, Girls, Girls and we end up with the Buggles' Video Killed The Radio Star! And then our players begin yet another transformation.

So let's continue on from there!

Master Of Puppets

Is there really any point if only two people are playing?

Re: The Song Title Transformation Game (one word at a time)

Is there really any "point" in anything we do on the game boards? I mean, in an existential sense? (I give you Count To Infinity, to name but one example!)

And actually, I shouldn't have said "begin anew"! We're actually supposed to pick up from The Spirit Of Radio by Rush, and then begin another transformation from there. :)

Teen Spirit Smells Like

? - Am I allowed to move more than one word around in one step?.

In other words, could I move both "teen" and "spirit" at once?

Re: The Song Title Transformation Game (one word at a time)

You can put the words in any particular sequence you like, provided you've got the right ones! The only real rules I have are: 1) You can only transform one word at a time. 2) You have the option of adding or subtracting a word, but only one at a time. 3) You can use your turn to either transform a word, or to either add or subtract another word, but you can't do both! 4) As long as you've got all the right words, you can put them in any order you like. In other words, there is no policy about being able to move more than one word at a time.

I hope that clears things up.

Obviously, what you've currently got is...

Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

So I'll begin the next transformation...

subtracting Teen

Smells Like Spirit
