Do you find *your* words?
« on: June 19, 2020, 05:19:11 AM »
During the thirteen years that I have been playing Chihuahua, I have suggested a number of new words that have become part of the Chihuahua lexicon. Once "my" words have been accepted, it always gives me great pleasure to encounter them during play. It also gives me pleasure when I see that I am not the only one playing them, and the more the better. In a very recent 7-by-many, more players had found "my" word that most of the other less common words. Yippee! Sometimes I notice other "new" words and think of the player who submitted it.

The words I submit are words that I know very well, but sometimes it seems to me that some suggested words are born in moments of desperation, when one simply can't find that last common word. It looks like a word, so it ought to be one! This leads me to wonder if others who have submitted words later find "their" words during game play.
