    We will start of with Australia - you have to come up with a new country starting with the last letter.
    When we have fineshed the countries you can do states!

    Australia !

    That's why I've been trying to avoid them smile - but a lot of countries that start with other letters end with A too.

    btw, you'll never get to many of the countries.  Most seem to end in 'A' 'N' 'I' or 'S'...

    I love this game!! -- We are doing a little bit of repeating though.......  Maybe impossible not to, since entries on previous pages are not easy to keep track of.  Maybe that's the nature of forum games anyway; anyone know?

    At any rate:

    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.)  smile
