    How To Play
    Take a name, any name.
    Rearrange the letters in that name to spell out other words.

    At its best the new words will accurately describe the person to whom the name belongs.
    But that is not necessary.
    Just have fun with it.

    That's pretty much all you need to know.
    If you got that then the rest of this post is just filler

    Scoring
    2 points for every name.
    3 points for using the name of the person who posted immediately before you.
    3 points for accepting a name challenge.
    0 to 3 points for how well the anagram describes the person or thing the name belongs to.
    -1 point for every letter not used.
    A minimum of 0 points for every name.

    Points don’t matter! Unless they suddenly do, then you’ll want to score as many as you can.



    Q & A

    Q: Why bothering with all this scoring if points don‘t matter?
    A: We’re here just to have fun. Scoring is just a way to show how it’s best to play.

    Q: What’s a challenge?
    A: Just for fun, challenge the next users to do an anagram of a name like this.

    Challenge: Jeremy Irons
    And the member who accepts a challenge must quote that, then give an answer.

    Q: Who decides if I get 0 or 3 points for how well my anagram fits the name?
    A: Right now, anyone who cares to comment. If there is ever a reason to keep score I expect I’ll award the points myself.

    Q: Why more points for using the name of the user who posted above me?
    A: Because the more the game goes on the harder it will be to come up with a new one.

    Q: Why -1 for ever letter not used?
    A: You should try to use every letter in the name. But hey, we’re just having fun here so it’s a way to allow for a fudge factor.

    Q: Haven't I seen this game somewhere before?
    A:Remember the episode “Lisa’s Rival” of The Simpsons?
    The rival invites Lisa to play the anagram game that she plays with her father. He gives her “Alec Guinness” and she turns it into “Genuine Class.” Then he gives Lisa “Jeremy Irons.” :(

    Q: Why so many rules? It makes me want to cry.
    A: Good question. As long as you know what an anagram is there is no need to read any of this. Since points don’t matter just get to the fun of making anagrams.

    If you find this Q&A too short please submit your question on a postcard to
    Colin's House
    Attention Aquadementia
    123 Fake St.
    New Bedford MA 02740

    Allow 6 to 12 weeks for it to be returned as undeliverable.
    Or just post your question here. IF it is about anagrams in some way.




    Example on how to play

    Toon Zone >> No Net Zoo

    That would earn me 2 points for being the name of our illustrious domain.
    And an additional 0 points for how well it describes Toon Zone, since everybody knows it is a net zoo and we are all animals in it.
    2 points total.


    Challenge: Lisa Simpson

    Lisa Simpson >>> No Spam Lissa

    or maybe:

    No Spam Sails...which doesn't make much sense...or maybe it makes more sense, because I would say "No" to a having a boat sail made of spam...

    Also:

    Aquadementia >>> Man Ate Quad...ie....

    Wonderfly, you skipped the challenge. :) So I'm just going to do your name.

    Wonderfly

    Drowny Elf

    Which I think describes him perfectly. I'll take my free internets, now. I want them in metric units.

    Rend Wolfy also helps capture his essence.

    Also Flowy Nerd. When I think Wonderfly, I think Flowy Nerd.

    Okay, here's my challenge.

    Mercedes Ruehl.

    Whoa!
    So much activity. My head's spinning.


    LOL, as they say.

    Her seem curled.
    But that's bad grammar.

    Here's me curled
    If I looked like her with straight hair.


    You don't have to be Sherlock to solve this next one

    Challenge: Benedict Cumberbatch

    You don't mess around, do you?

    Benedict Cumberbatch

    Be Nice, Catch Dumb Bert

    Because everyone knows Bert is Evil and it would take a master detective like Holmes to track him down.

    Okay, it would be sad if this was just the two of us. So hopefully someone will jump in with:

    Buddy Ebsen

    Buddy Ebsen --> Nude By Beds

    Because, that's something we all want to see.

    He has to be in this game. He's everywhere now.

    The next one is a guy who did a name anagram in his last new episode. See, this is a cool game for cool people. Awesome! I think he had a leftover 'r.'

    Try: Seth MacFarlane
