How to play the Game?
Start the game using the name of any country. The next player has to name another country, which starts with the last letter of the previous country that was named. The names of the countries cannot be repeated. If the country is divided into two and the new official names are announced, then the old name will not be valid. Same rules can be applied to the names of the cities, animals (includes birds and sea creatures), trees, currency, fruits, vegetables, names of famous leaders, names of famous organisations, etc.
This method can be uses at homes and also in the class. While it may seem like a game for the kids, it’s a fun game for the adults too.
