Anyone heard of "Shiritori"?
It's a Japanese word game, and this is how it goes: Firstly the game starts the word starts with the word "Shiritori" ("Shiritori" meaning "to take something from the bottom"). The next person must then add a japanese word beginning with the same sound as the previous word's last sound
(ie. shiritori - risu (squirrel)). The game ends when a word ending with "N"（ん/ン) is said/ or typed in our case, (ie. mikan (mandarin orange)) but we'll try to avoid that. Furthermore there mustn't be a repetiton of words. For our learning purposes, let's avoid katakanized words like coffee （コーヒー）。 Another note, make sure you place the English meaning in brackets next to the Japanese romaji word.
shiritori = ringo (apple)
