This is an experimental game, so I don't know how it'll work out, but I wanted to give it a go so here we are.

I'm going to pick a page, secretly, and then try to get you guys to mix it up by posting a phrasal template request sheet that you can fill in with different words--exactly like Mad Libs (read this Wikipedia article if you don't understand.)

Here's an example:

I pick page 100 (secretly) and then post this request sheet:

VERB:
ADJECTIVE:
PERSON:
VERB ENDING IN -ING:
A FEELING:
VERB:
NOUN:
PLURAL NOUN:
ADJECTIVE:
NOUN:
NOUN:
ADJECTIVE:


Someone else fills it in like this:

VERB: Fling
ADJECTIVE: Exciting
PERSON: George Washington
VERB ENDING IN -ING: Loving
A FEELING: Remorse
VERB: Chuck
NOUN: Purse
PLURAL NOUN: Creatures
ADJECTIVE: Light
NOUN: Slime
NOUN: Hat
ADJECTIVE: Silly


So I swap out the words I chose beforehand, and viola:



(End example)

I'll probably keep posting the word request sheets because it's probably easiest for me to create these (since I have access to all of the page files and can easily edit the dialogue) -- buut, eventually, I'll probably get someone to take over, or just release the game into the wild as a free-for-all.

But for now, I'm taking MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS per sheet, and I'll pick the best/funniest one to use. So even if someone has filled it out, you can give it a try, too!

There's some grammar terminology which is somewhat important to know for this game. I don't think it's too complicated; here's a helpful explanation: :)

DIRECT OBJECTS & PREPOSITIONAL PHRASES

A direct object is a noun phrase that a verb directly acts upon. It is the recipient of the action.A prepositional phrase is something that tells us when or where something happened or otherwise gives us contextual information. It is made up of a preposition word and a noun phrase.
(In the examples below, the direct objects are underlined and the verbs that act upon them are bolded.)(In the examples below, the prepositional phrase is bolded and the preposition word is underlined and bolded.)
The kid kicked the ball.
I hurt my hand when I was cutting an apple.
I purchased some groceries on the way home.
We go to sleep at night.
I took turns with my sister when we played a game in the backyard.
I purchased some groceries on the way home.

TRANSITIVE & INTRANSITIVE VERBS:

Transitive Verbs require a direct object.Intransitive verbs cannot have a direct object.
✅ I deleted the entry. ("The entry" is the direct object.)
✅ I deleted it. ("It" is the direct object.)
✅ I smiled.
✅ I smiled at her. ("At her" is a prepositional phrase, not an object.)
❌ I deleted. (This is an incomplete idea with no direct object.)❌ I smiled the baby. (This makes no sense with a direct object.)
Therefore, since "delete" requires an object to function correctly, it is a TRANSITIVE VERB.Therefore, since "smile" cannot have a direct object, it is an INTRANSITIVE VERB.

*Some verbs can be transitive and intransitive, depending on the context:

TRANSITIVE: I started the machine.
INTRANSITIVE: The machine started.

COUNTABLE & UNCOUNTABLE NOUNS:

Countable nouns usually have different forms depending whether they are singular or plural.Uncountable nouns have only one form, no matter how much of the noun there is.
✅ cat
✅ cats
✅ dream
✅ dreams
✅ bacon
❌ bacons
✅ luck
❌ lucks
Some countable nouns do not change when they are plural. Still, you can count them.You cannot count uncountable nouns. Instead, you can measure them.
✅ 1 sheep
✅ 2 sheep
✅ 1 dice
✅ 2 dice
✅ some water, a lot of water
❌ 2 water, 100 water
✅ a little traffic, all the traffic
❌ 1 traffic, 999 traffic

Uncountable nouns usually fall into the following categories:
Abstract ideas (Motivation, beauty, etc.)
Powders (Sand, dust, etc.)
Liquids and gasses (Milk, oxygen, etc.)
Food (Cheese, bread, etc.)
Feelings (Anger, joy, etc.)
Natural phenomena (Thunder, sunshine, etc.)

If you mess up and get your grammar mixed up, absolutely no worries! You can still win if it's funny enough anyway :geek:

Thematically speaking, that last question makes a lot of sense, given Evey's tendency to stink.
