When thinking of items to add to the "Change One Letter, Create a New Game" list (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/33889), I found I was coming up with names that had several more letters changed, but which sounded the same as the original name.

So this is the "Change as many letters as you want, but let it sound the same, and still create a new game" list.

I'll add the first few items.

N.B.: English is not my native laguange, so there is a good chance that I'll make mistakes. Also, there might be differences between American and British English. But it is all in good fun.

Spread your beliefs about the latest fashion styles to neighbouring villages, but know that you have to burn a pair of pants while doing that.

Battle Whore

Rather than following the obvious path, lets say this is a game about trying to start as many battles as you possibly can.

I'm not even going to say it. But whenever you invite someone to your house to participate in a session of cape horn, be sure that you pronounce it *very* clearly.

And the other way round, if you're invited for a round of Cape Horn, do check if the other party is talking about the activity that you think he is talking about.
