Here is an example of how to play the game. Any number of player can join.
a player start with any hiragana, ex: ひ, then another player sequel it with one syllable. 昼「ひる」、now the syllables are two, the third player can add upto max two syllable too. he can also rearrange completely all the syllable to make new valid word or phrase, since this definition is not clear in Japanese. Now an example would be 昼間 「ひるま」or 真昼「まひる」 both of them are legal. I was adding only 1 syllable instead of the alowed 2 max. After this round, you can add max 3 syllables to either ひるま or まひる. We stop and declare a winner once we couldn't add any longer to the latest word/phrase.

note: Please treat 点々 and ○ as a separate syllable. therefore you can add 点々 to さ、は、か to make ざ、ば、and が。

Lets start anew with ” は ".

If nobody pick up the thread, I just do some solitaire first.
+し
橋「はし」 - bridge

ps. earler は can mean 葉 - leaf.

Is that actually going to happen? We might end up with an entire novel with that method.

Hmm, I don't think that works. Using 決して that way it needs to be associated with a negative verb (negative coupola or negative command).

e.g. これは決してまじめじゃない。

P.S. You mispelled 'means'.
P.P.S. まじめ isn't a good match for real.

真面目 【まじめ】 (adj-na,n) diligent; serious; honest; (P)

Certainly a novel in progress. This is the title for the Prolog :)

If we just knew the ceremony for the 'Death of Sanji' day we would be

Take that onigiri shop. :p

Hmm, I wonder how many mistakes I made ... 😅

I dunno if this is actually a mistake, but shouldn't it be "ware ware"?

(I have to leave for work, or I'd try to add to this, but the sentence has gotten too long. 😅 )

Cut 'n' paste mixup I think.

What I did was put all the letters from the previous post in a spreadsheet, one per row, and sorted them. Then each letter I used I cut from the original. Each letter I added I put in a different column.

It was a tad fiddly 😌

I think we should limit the length of the sentence that can be populated, otherwise, you are right, it is turning into a complete novel.
I was thinking of starting a separate thread to play a the word level.
We start with one word, and add another word, and so forth. however the particle things are extra, and verb formation change is also extra.
Paul, what do you say, we start a new round. You have accomplish way to long a sentence.

ax :sorry:

Something(s) need to be changed.

By 'extra' do you mean 'don't count and can be changed at will' ?

yes, you can change (add/remove) at will. The main words used is more important. The particles acts just like the screws or nails that complete the whole patchwork.

PaulITB, shall we start a new game?
I have been contemplating on a new game too. It's gonna be based on radicals or components in Kanji rather than the Kanji itself. I am going to give you an example below:

ax: 日 「ひ」 sun
paulITB: 田 「た」 field '/ you reuse the 口 at the outer of 日 and put a 十 in its midst to make 田。 Each ensuing move has to reuse at least one of the components in the previous Kanji. Make your best attempt to add Furigana and meaning for those who wants to learn while playing.

the next possible moves:
ax: 早い「はやい」early
PaulITB: 針 「はり」 needle
ax: 銅 「どう」 copper
PaulITB: 洞 「どう」 grotto
and the game continues....
