Would that mean we could use:
With names, couldn't you get away with just about any spelling? Would it need to be an historical spelling?
Oh yeah, and I agree with consumer1...who gives a flying rats arse?
I care! I just started playing Words With Friends on my iPhone. Now what goes??
Proper nouns are against the rules of the game. Rules are there for a reason people!!
Sorry, I get all worked up over board game polls.
It is an important rule. As as been suggested above, the category of proper nouns is a wide open category, with new names and new spellings appearing daily. Regular nouns is a more manageable category because it evolves more slowly.
sorry - as has - not as as
no; and y'all quite messing with these old games. some just need to stay the way they are. y'all messed up chutes and ladder by putting it on a board, then y'all tried to mess up dominoes by putting to many in the box(an ugly new box at that) and giving 20 different ways to play it, i could go on, but y'all get what im saying; leave the game be.
Absolutely not! There are two problems. First, to add proper nouns (names) is, in effect, dumbing down the game. That's the problem with today's world - everything is getting dumbed down. Leave the game alone so that maybe, just maybe, there might be a slight educational value to it.
Secondly, with the way names are being generated these days, who is to rule on whether the player has chosen a proper proper noun, or is just making it all up? How many new spellings are there for even the "regular" names these days? And with the made up names, "Lakeisha, Shondraella, and any imaginable variation of any so-called foreign name, most anything would have to be allowed.
Leave the game alone and learn how to wrangle real words.
