Giant Game

Eric Berlin

Each line of text is a quote from the movie The Princess Bride, with every word replaced by a rhyme. One word in each quote has dropped out to the box below. When properly restored, the first letter of each word, reading up from the bottom, spells the phrase IOCANE POWDER.

No more rhymes now, I mean it.
I'll send my four fastest ships. One in each direction.
Mostly dead is slightly alive.
I think that's the worst thing I ever heard.
You fell victim to one of the classic blunders.
You killed my father. Prepare to die.
She doesn't get eaten by the Eels at this time.
I’m not a witch; I’m your wife.
We are men of action. Lies do not become us.
You can die too, for all I care.
Then there will be no one to hear you scream.
That may be the first time in my life a man has dared insult me.
