I was getting really bored, so I thought to myself: "Hmmm... What if us Sporclers could create a 5 letter word ladder together using Sporcle University?" And here it is. The Sporcle CollaboLadder.
What to Post:
A 5-letter word that connects to the previous word in the word ladder.
A clue (not too hard, not too easy) for your 5-letter word.
Follow similar rules as you would if you were making your own word ladder, for example:
I've added my word, and I'd love to see yours. If enough of us participate in the CollaboLadder, I'll make it into a Sporcle quiz. I'll keep track of the words, clues, and users here:
BRICK - Clay block used for building (BanjoZebra)
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Halophex||7/22/12 6:18 PM|
PRICK - to pierce
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||BanjoZebra||7/22/12 7:29 PM|
Oh, oops. I guess I can't really keep track of the words on the original post. Alright then. Let's continue.
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||druhutch||7/23/12 12:01 AM|
Five dollars to anyone who comes up with something other than "PRICE" for the next rung.
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Geo1||7/23/12 6:04 AM|
TRICK- decieve or outwit
That'll be $5 druhutch.
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||BanjoZebra||7/23/12 6:15 AM|
Geo1 - Sorry, that would be changing the same letter position twice in a row. But on the upside, druhutch gets his money back. ;)
Okay, let's continue from PRICK.
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Geo1||7/23/12 6:39 AM|
PRINK- to deck or dress for show
Do I get my five dollars now?
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||druhutch||7/23/12 10:53 AM|
Hey, I didn't say you get two tries. Okay, okay. you at least deserve $2.50. You did teach me a new word. Here I'll go:
PRINE - country/folk singer John
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||THEJMAN||7/23/12 4:17 PM|
BRINE - pickle juice
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||RobPro||7/23/12 4:18 PM|
PRUNE - Dried Plum
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||SproutCM||7/23/12 4:19 PM|
And now we have a WORD FORK :)
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||BanjoZebra||7/23/12 5:26 PM|
A "Word Fork." Interesting.
Okay, since THEJMAN did post first, let's continue from "Brine." Words so far:
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Bazmerelda||7/24/12 3:45 AM|
Have you ever tried to make a ladder from BANJO ---> ZEBRA? Not sure it would even be possible.
Anyway, as much as I'd like to engineer this towards BRONY, I think BRINY is probably a bit too close to BRINE. Instead I'll go with BRANE: Multi-dimensional object of M-Theory.
It could probably use a better clue than that but it is the only word I could find which really opened up the ladder.
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Toby123||7/24/12 5:13 AM|
The upper edge of a steep or vertical slope: BRINK
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||BanjoZebra||7/24/12 6:23 AM|
Wait a sec - "Brink" doesn't really word in a word ladder after "Brane." I don't know what happened there. Maybe another word fork.
Okay, continue from BRANE.
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Toby123||7/24/12 6:43 AM|
Oh stupid me! I didnt read Baz. post fully and missed the fact that he had posted, I am sorry! Ok, what about BRAVE?
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||vikZ||7/24/12 2:25 PM|
I really want to use BRAVO but it would lead to a dead-end (well almost dead-end. Only options would lead to changing the same letter twice).
With that, I lead to:
CRAVE - Strongly desire
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||MrChewypoo||7/26/12 1:44 PM|
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Ubbiebubbie||8/25/12 5:15 AM|
The Chevy _____: CRUZE
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||needapausebutton||8/25/12 8:50 AM|
Syrian or Lebanese religious community: DRUZE
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Cryptus||8/25/12 9:49 AM|
Is DOUZE (French for 12) cheating?
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||BanjoZebra||8/25/12 12:04 PM|
Cryptus - Nope, DOUZE is totally fine.
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Ubbiebubbie||8/25/12 1:34 PM|
NOT GIVING A WORD FOR THE WORD LADDER-- I got a start for BANJO ----> ZEBRA, but I'm no word ladder-er (just made that one up) so someone more experienced should fill in the middle.
Guitar alternative- BANJO
Burmese self defense style- BANDO
Musician clusters- BANDS
Futurama robot, gangsta style- BENDA (I'll admit, that one was a stretch)
Stuff to fill in, because I'm not sure what I'd do!
Messing of Ned & Stacey- DEBRA
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Ubbiebubbie||8/25/12 1:35 PM|
And then 'Dalmatian horse'- ZEBRA
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Sheldon||8/25/12 2:47 PM|
I would give this quiz 5 globes JUST for the word "Collaboladder"!
Anyway here's mine:
To pour liquid on
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||stanford0008||8/25/12 3:29 PM|
I think A great way to finish off the ladder would be to go with HOUSE. (Even gives it a theme!)
Popular television M.D.
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||needapausebutton||8/25/12 3:48 PM|
If that IS the last word, the game's title could be "Word Ladder - Won't Get Blown Down"
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||BanjoZebra||8/25/12 6:15 PM|
Hmm. Maybe we could end it there, and start another CollaboLadder on a different thread. Who agrees?
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Aurora Illumina||8/25/12 6:28 PM|
This is nice. Maybe if we want to make a bigger collaboration, it would be easier for more people to chip in if we do a four-letter one. Would that work?
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||Geo1||8/25/12 6:32 PM|
|Re: Sporcle CollaboLadder||BanjoZebra||8/25/12 6:51 PM|
Yay! This thread turned out to be a huge success. Here's a link to the final quiz:
I will soon post another thread - Sporcle CollaboLadder 2!
(and this time, it'll be four-letter words.)

This was published today. This was a great idea, and I'm glad we could get you all some recognition for it.
