IT'S BACK!!!!!!


This time around, you are allowed to use ANY TERM found in APUSH - beginning to end!!

To make this interesting.... the WINNER gets a bonus 100 as a Unit Exam score!!!! (extra and does not excuse you from your final unit exam that is coming up!!!)  The one that post the most is the winner!! Plan and simple.  All you need is two people to get the ball rolling.  Don't forget the rules!!! If you break them, you lose points!!  Remember to keep hitting refresh so you are sure you are answering to the last post!  The game officially ends at midnight Friday!!!!

Dealing with X, Y, and Z words.  True, there aren't many of these in your APUSH historical terms, but to make the game interesting - when you get to any of these three letters, you must use any that does exist.  If there are no more words that begin with X, Y, or Z (x & z will be the hardest), then you can declare a "SKIP" and move to the next letter.  WARNING:  if the person responding to your next letter finds a word that has not be used - then they can declare a FOUL and YOU (the one that declared the "SKIP" will lose point.

ALSO.... Last time some of you tried to skirt around the rules!!! If you use "Alexander Hamilton" as your "A" word, NO ONE can use "Hamilton, Alexander" as their "H" word.  Once the word has been used, in ANY FORM, it cannot be reused!!!

BTW - when you reach the end of the alphabet - you know... you just start over from the beginning!
