The amount of individual words stored in the human brain through listening is phenomenal. Most people are unaware of the number of words that, once heard, are stored for futur recall. This game is intended to serve as a warm-up exercise and aid in recalling these words.

The teacher write a word on the board (example: grass). The first student must then take the LAST letter in the teacher's word (S) and give a word starting with the letter S. The next student then takes the LAST letter of the first student's word and gives a word starting with that letter.

The following rules apply:
- Words starting with a capital letter are not
accepted
- Only the infinitive of each verb is accepted
- No slang is accepted
