word association type game
Just type your words into the text box.
http://shygypsy.com/farm/p.cgi
Fairly hard, sometimes frustrating, but fun!
You can also have a lot of people working on it by using the 'save game' and 'merge' options.

ETA: there is a 'hints' link in the far upper right corner. No word hints, it gives hints on how to play. Some areas, wikipedia or google are very helpful.

ETA2: there's a glitch every so often that gives you a 'no cheating' page when entering a word, just back up and try the word again.

Okay, I must be doing something wrong...no matter what word I type in, I get the "cheating attempt logged" screen.

I'm just typing in a word & pressing enter...am I missing something?

That's what I get, too. I'm expecting Homeland Security to swoop in at any minute.

This game is going to be quite tough. I put in all of the common animals, but now I'm stuck.

Don't forget that it is word association.

btw I'm giving up as I don't know any Poker Stars and precious few (US) magicians.

Why don't we collaborate?

Here's what I've found.

EDIT: I've merged all the game posted so far and found a few more in the process!

Sorry Griffin 2020, your link takes me to a do not cheat page.

TB Tabby, thanks for cowboy and rodeo.

For what it's worth
mine so far.

It's reasonably fun but I got so tired of the near-constant error messages, I gave up.

I'm feeling rather dense, but where is the "enter" button on the game? I see the box where you type the word, but nothing where I can enter the word.

Of course, maybe this is a hint that this game is a little above me. [Frown]

You just insert a word and press the enter button on your keyboard.

This is a cool game.

ETA: my progress so far.

the 'don't cheat' page is a glitch, it might work better if you try at a time when it's not so busy (not sure when that would be, but I don't get many errors late at night here)

I've got most the map open -- here

If you get stuck, don't be afraid to research. ^_^
