Are any of you players amenable to a modification of the rules? Namely, that if the country (or continent, now) ends in -a or -ia, it is acceptable to begin the next word with the letter that precedes the -a or -ia? - It's just a suggestion, since there's not much way around the problem. And I don't know exactly how to get a consensus about this. I don't mean to change the rules without feedback. Any ideas?
BTW, whatever happened to the Hubber who started this game? (Thanks for starting it - even if you're not playing it any more.)
