Online Encore Game

You can blame Shmuel for this. Actually, he has other people to pass the thanks or blame on to, but I would not have found it were it not for him.

Anyway, there is a board game (and parlor game) called Encore, in which the object is to sing a portion of a song containing the challenge word. You have to include at least eight consecutive words for it to count. What makes this fun for the challenger (in this case, me) is to try to come up with words that aren't found in a lot of songs. To make it more challenging, you are supposed to do this from memory, not via google or your music collection.

I've come up with a bit of a scoring variation, as you will see, and have in mind actual physical prizes. (I hesitate to say "valuable prizes" as value is in the eye of the beholder.)
