Default Score ten points!

Post a list of ten words every day.
Each correct word earns you one point.

The first correct word may take some days to find, but each new correct word added to the scoresheet will make it easier.

Start now! First person to score ten points is the winner.

Hello, Gurth, and welcome to the Word Games forums. The few of us who visit here regularly are a small but active group who are always happy to welcome new participants.

I'm not sure what makes one word any more 'correct' than another, but I'm pretty sure I have found a list of ten that couldn't possibly score less than ten. Here are my words:

• incorrect
• wrong
• mistaken
• inaccurate
• faulty
• bogus
• counterfeit
• fraudulent
• spurious
• false

How do I collect my prize?

Don, thanks for breaking the ice and taking the plunge. Of course you can't know yet what makes a word "correct", the whole idea of this game is to find out, by trial and error.
But this game can't get off the ground until we have at least one more participant.
(You have made a really good start, but the game isn't over yet, you have scored considerably less than ten points. But we'll have to wait now for more entries before we can go on. Meanwhile, please wait a day or two before you post your second list.)

Hopefully that will be you, Anthony, also I've heard a rumour that Mark would also like to try his luck.

Anthony, all you have to do at this stage is just post a list of 10 words, then see what develops. I know from the anagram game that you are a brilliant competitor, you won't have to think quite so hard in this game.

Great, Anthony! With two entrants already, the game will certainly be won by somebody.

I'm going to wait another 24 hours from now before I publish the leader board for round one. Just in case somebody else wants to enter on the ground floor. After I do that, players will have 23 hours to post their lists for round two.
