A now extinct game of posting. You see the game went like this, someone posted a topic (usually Dar' Argol, but I'll get to that stuff later) and then they'd post a name related to that topic then everyone else would play off the last letter with something from that topic.

Here's the example that the one who started the game off first (Brave Sir Robin) posted:

Movie Title Bouka:
Star War(S)
(S)tar Trek: The Voyage Hom(E)
(E)dward Scissorhand(S)
(S)tand By M(E)
(E)vil Dea(D)

Usually there was just one going at a time and it would go for quite awhile, after a new one would be started it would get closed and they were started/closed by Dar' Argol, but when they were moved here they just really died out because there were so many at once.

Where did the name Bouka come from?

In Japanese the definition is:

(n) fire prevention; fire fighting; fire proof; (P)

As per SSG purposes, I am unaware of the exact intended meaning. Feep!

I always thought Bouka was pretty lame....a lot of people stopped participating when it was moved here, becuase the posts didn't go towards post count anymore.

the reason I stopped participating was when the bouka was moved here, suddenly about 10 boukas were going at once and there was a post about once a day on all of them so the "excitement" or fun of the game was gone

Isn't Bouka the current President of Djibouti?

I always thought it was the sound that those old car horns made.
