Some of my improv comedy circle are gamers, and some of my gaming circle are improv comedians. (You got chocolate in my peanut butter!)

Somehow, the concept of deleting the first letter of a game title to create a new game came up... and a bunch of us sat around brainstorming what kind of games would result.

Some examples below.

I'm not rich with GG, but if other people add results that make me LOL, I'll award some of my stash to the best of them.

(P.S. my first geek list EVAR. Be gentle.)

***DOUBLE EDIT*** I tried alphabetizing this because people requested it but I have to admit I can't *stand* it like that... no way to go check all the new items at once. Sorry!

***EDIT*** Now Alphabetized by popular demand. Thank you fine Australian ladies
