Use the Google Translate tool ( http://translate.google.com ) to rename a game. Start with the name of the game in English, translate from English to another language, then cut-and-paste the result from the second language into a third language. Then go back to English and see the results.

Cycle through however many languages you want, but you get bonus points for style with a smaller chain of translations. Also, post the language chain so others can duplicate the results.

Who can come up with the funniest or most interesting result?
I'll post a couple to get the list started.

Here's a tip: I recommend using all lower-case letters to start the translation. Sometimes Google will treat capitalized letters as a proper noun, and will carry over the word as-is. This makes for less interesting results. In any case, quote exactly what you used as your phrase.


EDIT: Looks like Google has been doing some cleanup on their translations. Some of the original entries on this list are now translated more accurately. So I wanted to let new viewers of this list know not to be surprised when some of these no longer work. Then again, with every hole they plugged, they may have opened others. Happy translating!

Looks like a deeper message:
sheep + wood = cotton?
Original: The Settlers of Catan
Chain: English -> Jiddish -> Thai -> Finnish -> English
Result: Cotton Dispute.

And German, where cotton is literally called tree-wool (Baumwolle) wasn't even involved in the chain. But Jiddish helped to scramble the vowels, (catan = cotton), and Thai+Finnish managed to settle arguments rather than peasants.
