So the way this works is, you reply with a word that increase the letter count, exactly by one.

So for example, if it starts with "a", the next person could do "go" then the next might be "elk" (increase each word by one letter).

Naturally, at first it's going to be easy, but as the words continue to grow in size, it's going to get more and more complicated (and using google is absolute OK!) - you cannot user "Acronyms" as words.

ADDITION: I think in order to keep it interesting, try using a word that's not already been used in the thread! (Because that's too easy!) Obviously it's easy to forget what's been said...

So to start off:

Rath, your word is only 9 letters long. Should be 11.
So I will do an 11 letter word.

Oh! I thought we were only going up to 10 letters, and then going backwards. Whoops.

Heh, no the idea is to keep going as far as we can. Using google is completely acceptable for finding words that continue to grow. People might learn a new word or two. :D

So for 13 letters...
