#WordSnake

Game Information
Short Introduction: 
#WordSnake Shiritori, Antakshari or Word Chain; all variants of the ever-popular word game in which you have to come up with words that begin with the letter that the previous word ended with. In #WordSnake, you play this game in a public environment such as the train station or a pub - using Twitter! You can play with peers or strangers, as long as they are watching the same public display as you are. The game is fully twitter-powered: 1. Anybody can start a game by twittering 'start' to the display-specific hashtag - #ws123 in this occasion. Everybody can join using their mobile phone, tablet or laptop: they simply send a message with the hashtag included. [#ws123 start] 2. First, the theme selection starts: you can vote for a theme you like, or add a choice yourself - but hurry up, you only have a few seconds! [#ws123 animals] [#ws123 dinner dishes] 3. Then, the game starts! The first player to post a word is lucky, since he/she can determine both the starting and end letter. [#ws123 goat] 4. Now, another player has to come up with a word that matches both the theme and starts with the last letter of the previous word; the first one to post it earns 10 points, and continues the chain. [#ws123 turkey] 5. To conclude the game, you have to close the circle: both the word chain and the snake have to touch their tail. The last word should end with the first letter of the chain - a 'g' in our example. Connect the words and complete the Ouroboros! [#ws123 yorkshire pig]

Short Introduction: 
The Beetle Kingdom and the Slug Empire had been at war for generations. The Slug Empire, barbaric and ruthless, spread across the land with no care for culture or advancement. The Beetle Kingdom is technologically advanced, but the war has ruined its proud cities, decimated its laboratories. Only its Power Beetle armored soldiers could protect the helpless civilian populace. But even their proud military eventually ran out. No more heroes. Even the scientists who created the powered armor were all killed by the advancing Slug Empire. Eventually, only one frail, cowardly lab assistant remained. He had been working on a special set of power armor, and when a Slug Empire attack killed everyone in his laboratory, all he could do was hide in the X-Beetle armor. X-Beetle is a sentai beetle warrior. He has great power, but is incomplete. He is searching the Slug Empire for the legendary Plug of Destiny: a special attachment that will fully unlock the potential of his sentai suit. There are many flawed copies of the Plug of Destiny scattered throughout the land. X-Beetle must avoid the Slugs and find the one thing that will give him the power to really kick their asses.
