I just never got into the one word at a time round. Yet I donít mind watching episodes of Go once in awhile. You figure that one out.

The building-a-question mechanic only works when the people playing have a special aptitude for the game. And simply put, the contestants on GSN were not good at it in any way shape or form.

One of the simplest briefing notes I've discovered in playing the game over the years is to have the second person "define" the subject immediately with word 2, if they can. The first person just throws out the best "W" word to get it going. So for instance, if the answer is "George Washington", WHAT PRESIDENT is a pretty easy way to start. If it's "The Big Bang Theory", WHAT SITCOM...if it's "Cake" you say WHAT DESSERT, etc. etc. Conciseness is #1, with the ability to change the question midstream, or cut your losses and pass early, being somewhere else in the top 3.

Wasn't that how Twisters got set up and executed?

Sort of, but not really, because only one contestant had to build the question there.
