Word Game Begins!

Posted on Fri Jul 8th, 2011 @ 2:37pm by Commodore Samantha York

Justin, the new CO of the Typhon and our beloved Mission Advisor started the Word of the Month game.

It's a great game. The object is to see how many times you can use the Word of the Month correctly in a JP.
Each JP counts as one.
Although we're already a week into he month, I'd like to try the game on the Calypso.
Every time you use it, send me a PM with JULY WORD GAME in the subject and the name of the post in the body.
