As a kid, I remember playing a game we called Geography. The premise was simple: state a geographical place (say Kansas). Then the next player had to come up with the name of a place that started with the LAST letter of the previously stated location (such as using the “s” in Kansas for San Diego) and so on until someone couldn’t come up with a place. That person was OUT and you could either continue until only one player was left or simply end it there with everyone else but the eliminated player winning. This was simple fun – and made you think about places around the world that you barely ever thought of! Now, a similar principle has been applied to word games with this new one from Marsha J. Falco: WordSpiel.
