All you've got to do is form a word from a word posted by someone earlier, and post a word yourself for the next person to form a word from that, who will post a word themselves, and so on. You can write phrases too, if you like.

Ready? Let's begin!

Are there really 12 3-letter words in the word donkey? All I can find (3 letter words) are don, one, Noe, nod, key, doe, end, den, Yoe (place in New York), oye (hear in Spanish) Ken and Ned.
I'd like to know what the words are... these are just the ones I can think of. :D

Louise, I did say 'three letters *or more*'! Though you seemed to manage anyway :) You left out 'yen' and 'yon' - can't think of any more 3s off the top of my head.
