The Vorticon Word Game!

Post by ComissionerDeWitt » Thu May 11, 2017 22:58

I made a new word game! :p

The objective here is to add "Vorti" in front of as many words as you can think of.

It can be any kind of word at all, names, objects, places, etc etc. You can even make up a new word and put Vorti in front of it! You can also use words from other languages! :p




(should this go in Miscellaneous or Other Keen Stuff? o-o)

My favorite is how I was able to very literally translate Vortikid into Japanese - ヴォーティコドモ. :D

Last week I attended a vorticonvention of the Fifth Vorticongress on the subject of repeat-offending among vorticonmen vorticonvicts and possible vorticontrols that might be used to prevent it. It was a bit dull, but I think VorticonConConConCon put some neat ideas out there.

A few official "Vorti" words I know of:

1. Vorti Cola
2. Vortiville
3. Vortininja

Nothing else springs to mind. 8)
