WA Navbox and EG variants.[edit]

There are now four EG variants, and all of them are listed in "Radial".

The EG Variants, in order of creation, are Expansive Grid, Inversive Grid, Reversive Grid, and Condensive Grid.

Should we separarte EG variants from non-branched radial and ultra variants? James1011R (talk, contribs) 15:25, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

I have a new idea for a Word Association Variant.[edit]

Frame Association.

It is played like a regular Ultra game, but it has colored frames.

Inside the frames the words must associate.

Across the frames the words must disassociate.

Right now I'm hosting the 9x9 version at Disassociation Deviants.

See both the 9x9 and 11x11 Frame Association versions at User:James1011R/Word Association. James1011R (talk, contribs) 21:24, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Why was Psychedelic WA discontinued?[edit]

When looking at the history of Game #18, I found there used to be Psychedelic WA, with unusual ideas every round.

Why was it removed? James1011R (talk, contribs) 13:49, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

I've created a new Word Association game![edit]

Come play it here! Thanks! —Preceding undated comment added 04:11, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Where's the Game?[edit]

I couldn't find a link to the actual game. Thanks. LM103 (talk) 23:56, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Click here to get to my game! alexanderao (talk) 23:21, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Yet Another WA Game Idea[edit]

You have a diamond shaped 11x11 grid, the cells not part are black.

Played Radial (not reverse-radial) style, you expand from the center into the points.

It is called crystal association.

An Expansive Grid version will be called Liquid Crystal and a Ultra Cross version will be called Adamantine. James1011R (talk, contribs) 15:45, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Good idea! I'd play that. Whoop whoop pull up Bitching Betty | Averted crashes 22:09, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Hardcore Ultra nominated for deletion[edit]

The Hardcore Ultra word association has been nominated for deletion at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Wikipedia:Department of Fun/Word Association/Hardcore Ultra by user:James1011R. Thryduulf (talk) 10:33, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Question about branches[edit]

Can I play the main game and a branch at the same time, i.e. can I add a word to the main game and one to the branch in the same edit (or two consecutive edits)? --(agnamaracs) (talk) 17:54, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes. Just don't play two words on the same game/branch. This applies to most games, except "Double Association" where you're supposed to play two words for everything instead of one. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:06, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Squaretree variant[edit]

Should I kill it, leave it, or limit it to Ultra fruit? James1011R (talk, contribs) 05:10, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Heatmap variant[edit]

Should I make one? You can see the proposal here: User:James1011R/Forge_2.0/GameRoom James1011R (talk, contribs) 05:10, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
