Hi everyone!

I have a forum game idea I want to try.
I am not sure how well it will go, it is a bit of an experiment. So if there are any suggestions, feel free to recommend.

This game is called: "All Roads Lead to Miku" :miku_rylitah:

Here is how it works:

1 user gives any word (noun/verb/etc).
The next user must trace it back to Miku in specifically five steps (it can't be more or less), then give the next word.

So, posts will appear such as this:
5 steps that relates previous word back to Miku
Word for the next user.

Ex.

User A:
User B:
1) The pencil is used to write
2) You can write music with it
3) Music can also be written with software
4) Vocaloid is a type of software you can use to help write music
5) Hatsune Miku is a Vocaloid voicebank

Winter

Can you successfully bring a word back to Miku? :miku_ani_lili:
Remember, it must be in a total of 5 steps!

And remember, have fun!

Our first word will be:

Winter

Ok, this one's insane. Hopefully it doesn't break the rules....

1. Cartoon has 7 letters
2. Letters are used 7 days a week
3. 7X7 is 49
4. In Roman numerals, X is 10; 49-10 is 39
5. "39" re-read is "Miku"

The next word is Green.

Maybe the above prompt was too hard (I just picked it at random, more or less.); I'll see what I can do with it:

1. Green is the color of envy; Envy Catwalk is a Vocaloid song.
2. Envy Catwalk is sort of related to cats; Cat Food is a Vocaloid song also related to cats.
3. Sweets are a kind of food that taste sweet; Sweet Devil is a Vocaloid song about something that seems sweet (but maybe isn't).
4. Bitter Majesty is the successor to Sweet Devil; majesty is a title given to royalty.
5. Cinderella was a royal princess; Romeo and Cinderella is a Vocaloid song sung by Hatsune Miku, who also sang all the other songs in this list.

The next word is "future."

Dang that'd be really easy in like 2 steps, gotta push it out
1. Future is part of the phrase "Think the Future".
2. "Think the Future" is a song.
3."Think the Future" was a demo song for Aoki Lapis.
4. Aoki Lapis is a blue vocaloid.
5. Hatsune Miku is also a blue vocaloid.

Next word is "alone".

(Yep, I think that's one of the difficult things about this game. Lots of things could be related to Miku in fewer than 5 steps....)

1. Alone is the state of being by oneself, doing something by oneself, or having something confined to oneself.
2. Many Vocaloid songs deal with the idea of feeling isolated, or alone. For example, "Solitary Hide-and-Seek Envy."
3. Conversely, "alone" comes from Middle English, and is a concatenation of the words "all" and "one."
4. "Solitary Hide-and-Seek Envy" was performed at Magical Mirai, a Vocaloid concert.
5. Miku performed the song at the concert. At Vocaloid concerts, in a sense, fans are all like one. No one is alone.

It's easy to wind up picking Vocaloid-related words when coming up with these prompts, since that's what we're thinking about while we're here. To give us something completely random to work with, I picked the next word from the Dictionary.com word of the day: "epiphonema." I wonder how people will feel about this?

(Epiphonema: "A sentence that is an exclamation, a general or striking comment, or a succinct summary of what has previously been said.")

Epiphonemas are often parts of songs - typically like a chorus
All songs have choruses
Choruses have singers
Singers can be human or virtual
Hatsune Miku is a virtual singer

I really tried here. I know it sucks. :overjoyed:

Next word: moonlight.

Moonlight comes from the moon.
The moon is associated with rabbits in Japan.
Yukari Yuzaki is inspired by the "moon rabbits"
Yukari is a Vocaloid.
Miku is also a Vocaloid.

Hm, not sure about this one....
  1. Zombies are supernatural beings.
  2. Supernatural means something that is or appears to be beyond what is natural.
  3. Cats eat rats; cats get them in their mouths, and they become the cats' food.
  4. Rats are beings possessing long tails.
  5. When Miku appears on stage, it seems to defy what we know about what's real/what isn't--it's supernatural. She also sometimes has "Cat Food" in her mouth and possesses two long tails.
The next word is "sunrise."
