A Word Game Anyone? Empty A Word Game Anyone?

Post  middlemamma on 10/25/2010, 3:50 pm

Anyone ever play that game where you start with the letter A and the first person says a destination (ie. country, town, city, continent) that starts with A, like Afghanistan. Then the next person has to list a destination that starts with the last letter of the previous answer. So in the case of Afghanistan the next person would have to name one that starts with N. No repeating previous answers.

What about a gardening twist?

Name a plant. Begin with A. No repeat answers. Use the singular of the plant when you can to avoid ending in S, otherwise we might run out of S plants FAST! Smile

BUT THE TWIST IS: provide info about the plant you choose. It could be a link to an extension office's page that tells you all you ever wanted to know about the plant, or you could copy and paste from a source.

Anybody want to play?

I will go first.

Asparagus
http://www.asparagus.org/
http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/1000/1603.html
http://urbanext.illinois.edu/veggies/asparagus.cfm

Smile This should be a fun and intersting thread..... Cool

(Edited to include suggesting the singular use idea.)

I'll play!!!!! The last letter of Asparagus is "s" so I pick Strawberries. Here is a link to growing strawberries.

So many veggies end in "S", we may want to use the singular of the word?

I will do that. Since "Strawberry" ends with Y, I will pick yam. Found an interesting site that is a page from the Jamaican Food Festival: http://www.stea.net/tyfaboutyam.html

Yam, not sweet potato (though technicaly I could have used that as the word was Strawberries) Very Happy

That is a good point Megan. I don't mind if you do that Chopper but since it is Jennie's thread and game should we get her permission?
