I thought we should try this cos I'm want to learn more Japanese. LOL! Here's a run down on what it is...

Quote :
Word chain game This game is a very well-known Japanese word game, which is also very easy to play. You have to be at least two persons to play it. One person starts out by saying a randomly chosen Japanese word.

Now the other person has to produce a word that starts with the same syllable as the first word ended with. Then it is the next person's turn, etc. You must not say a word that has already been said. If someone, by accident, says a word that ends with "n", he has lost, and the game restarts.

Normally, in order to limit the number of words that can be used, there is a rule saying you must only pick words that describe a thing or a phenomena. Only nouns and personal/place names are allowed.If someone ends a sentence with for instance "ki" it is ok to start the next sentence with "kyo", since it actually starts with "ki" too. But if someone ends with "ka" it is not legal to start with "a".Example:

kingyo -> gyoukai -> iki -> kyabetsu -> tsunami -> mirin
shimatta!!
    (goldfish) (business)
    (breath) (cabbage)
    (tidal wave) (sweet sake)
Words like "myou" (strange), "ashita" (tomorrow) might not be acceptable, since they are not "mono", things, or phenomena.
Hope this will work... LOL! Put in brackets the translated word and the Kanji if you want. :)
