A little wordplay I savor, I affectionately call the wordspace. It's a visual thing, inspired by ancient writing systems (and some modern ones!) in which no spacing was used between words. Certain strings of letters can be interpreted in sometimes wildly different ways by inserting spaces differently.

Example: demonstrategyration

In this list, we will inventively reinvent games based on mis-spacing their titles.

Entertain me with your take on this silliness!
