Phrase to Word to Phrase game

For example using posts from a slightly derailed thread as an example Roll eyes
1 of us may say a phrase like
Quote from: 7up
Well another 15 posts after this one and I celebrate a big number!!!

Then 1 of us will reply like
Quote from: TORPC
15 posts is = to how many fence panels Roll eyes

Then another member will reply
Quote from: shutter
Thirteen

Then the next reply
Quote from: TORPC
Ye Olde Bakers Dozen Cheesy

and so on
The hardest part is to try and keep it in moderate context Roll eyes
May need a bit more thought, refinement, & open to suggestions Smiley

Re: Phrase to Word to Phrase game

I like conversations consisting of a series of apparently unrelated statements but actually with a subtle connection...usually changing between statement pairs.

Oldjim's an engineer who occasionally gets up a head of steam. Smiley
Steam is a download site isn't it?
