Let's Play Shiritori

Post by richvh » Wed 06.25.2008 2:58 pm

This is meant to be a combination of the two games, Let's Play (where each word/phrase is connected in some manner thematically to the previous word) and Shiritori (where the next word starts with the last kana used in the previous word.)

House rules:
Each new word must be related somehow thematically to the previous word.
Each new word must start with the the kana that ends the previous word. However, handakuten and dakuten (voicing marks) are disregarded, and in the case of the word ending in a combination kana, either the combination kana, or the full sized version of the small kana may be used. Also, in the event someone ends a word in ん, the preceding kana plus the ん must be used.

Examples:
読書(どくしょ)->読む(よむ)
開店(かいてん)->天井(てんじょう)
生年月日(せいねんがっぴ)->日々(ひび)

With the rules out of the way, here's the first word:
遊ぼう
あそぼう
Let's Play!

空想
(くうそう)
a daydream, a fantasy

Maybe we could also offer explanations if the connection is not immediately obvious.
For example 意欲 and 空想 are both workings of the mind....

Also thanks to richvh for starting this thread!
