Alphabet Sloop

When I was a young pirate, many moons ago, someone mentioned that they were playing Alphabet sloop by collecting a sloop with an adjective that starts with every letter of the alphabet. I thought that was a great idea and started my own collection. Today, thanks to my Christmas gift from the greatest boyfriend in the world, I finished that task.

Here is my list and I would be interested to see the list from anyone else playing this game. All of my renames are standard so you might even find some fish names you can use for your own collections.

Appealing Bananafish
Beautiful Darling
Committed Plaice and Cherished Plaice
Demented Bass
Educated Plaice
Flying Plaice and Forgotten Plaice
Good Plaice
Hunting Snipefish
Invaluable Alewife
Jubilant Damsel
Kinky Damsel
Leaping Lizardfish
Magnificent Tench (that one needs to go though)
Naughty Damsel
Outgoing Plaice
Popular Plaice
Quirky Damsel
Red-Hot Chillipepper and Romantic Plaice *cupid class of course
Snowy Plaice
Thankful Plaice
Uninhibited Plaice
Vibrant Cod
Well-known Plaice
Xerothermic Icefish
Young Angler
and the ship with the name that scores the highest, who's name is thanks once again to Jthebear
Zippy Zwinik Zloty

Have fun making your own Alphabet sloop collection!

Re: Alphabet Sloop

I took it one step further and did Alliterative Alphabet Sloops. It took me 3 years to finish the collection, since it required several event prizes and several more renames. (All the renames are valid Adjective Fish shipnames.) It was tremendous fun!

Here's my list, not counting some common duplicates:

Alien Alert and Alphabetical Arete
Big Bream
Complicated Cod
Different Drummer
Enthusiastic Eel
Flexible Flounder
Generous Gar
Hopsitable Halibut (two of them!)
Inquisitive Infante
Jiggly Jellow
Kaleidoscopic Kingfish
Lonely Lamprey
Moral Muskellunge
Nifty Nerfling
Ornery Ogre
Passionate Plaice (my very first sloop!)
Quotable Quillfish
Refined Rudd
Successful Shad
Talkative Trout
Upside Up
Villainous Varlet
West Winde
Xiphod Xipho
Yin Yangutan
Zany Zebrafish

Re: Alphabet Sloop

For My Innocents, I have A (Ammokripta, Angler, Anchovy), B (Blowfish, Boi), C (Chocolate, Cod), G (Grunion), H (Habfish, Halibutx2), L (Lingx2, Lush), M (Magi, Mako), N (Needlefish), P (Pickerel, Piranha, Plaice, Pollack), R (Ruddx2), S (Sailfish, Sawfish, Shad, Sildx2, Snowtrout, Sprat), T (Tenchx2, Troutx2, Tuna), W (Whitebait, Witch)

So that leaves: DEFIJKOQUVXYZ; though the crew collection covers E (Eel), as well as a bunch more of specific letters.
