Divakar - 2006-12-13: 02:03:00
Hey guys...I'm new and maybe I'm misunderstanding something. It's called "verbotomy" but do our words have to be verbs? Because to me, this seems to ask for an adjective. I mean, "To fake a sudden..." or "To react with sudden illness..." would sound more verbish.

wordmeister - 2006-12-13: 03:02:00
Hey Divakar, Any kind of word will do, as long as it is you can use it in a sentence. And the funnier that sentence that more votes you'll get...

verbatul - 2006-12-13: 07:54:00
Divakar has a point though. An attempt should be made to supply a verb when one is asked for (and still maintain wit).

BaruMonkey - 2006-12-13: 10:32:00
insofar as the name of the game is concerned... Verboseness, Verbosity (n) - An expressive style that uses excessive or empty words.

DarthWader - 2006-12-13: 11:53:00
I agree with Divakar... The definition begins with "To be..." not "The condition of..." Verb, verb, verb. Verb is the worb.

Hey Players,
As you may have noticed we have lot's of new Verbotomists. Welcome to everyone! We are working on setting up a grouping system, so that we can play in smaller groups... We will keep you posted, as we update the system! Cheers, James

warped - 2006-12-13: 13:40:00
Bah, I should read the list FIRST next time: I accidently ended up using someone else's word (shirkitis). Ah well. Also, grouping people into smaller groups would be great, it seems we got a flood of people from Jay Is Games...

wordmeister - 2006-12-13: 13:45:00
Hey read the sentence for Workumvent -- it's funny

TheCapn - 2006-12-13: 20:57:00
Im pretty sure there is a real word for this...

TheCapn - 2006-12-13: 21:16:00
There is, its "Malinger"

- 2006-12-13: 22:12:00
DarthWader, "verb" also refers to words and speech, as in the words "verbal" and "verbalize," or as BaruMonkey pointed out, "verbose." Thus this game is not about the part of speech called "verb," but rather about words in general.
