English Word Game

I start with a word and the next person writes a new word beginning with the last couple of letters (or three or four letters…) of the previous word.

This is the first one:



  1. dynamite

  2. tenure

  3. remedial
    Michael, have a good weekend!

  4. also

  5. solitaire

  6. render

  7. dermatologist

  8. isthmus

  9. muscle

  10. clearance

    Michael, Happy Chinese New Year!

  11. celebrate

    Hi, Maria. Thank you very much for your warm greetings. We just finished our Spring Festival holiday. I wish you a very happy Chinese New Year too.:)

  12. technical

    Michael, may the Year of the Snake be a good one for you!

  13. calculus

    Hi, Maria, thank you for your kind wishes. Can this website have a function that when there is a new comment all the people here can receive a reminding by e-mails? This is a method to ask more people to take part in this game. Just a suggestion.

  14. username

  15. means

  16. Michael, thanks for your suggestion. For various reasons though, it’s not feasible at the moment.

  17. answer

    …me soon again, Michael. 🙂

  18. rain

    Hello Maria, Thank you for your reply. I understand it. No problem. I believe this link will be better and better and more and more people will know and like the game.:)

  19. insert

    Some things in life require a lot of perseverance, don’t they…?

  20. team

    I agree with you, dear Maria. Have a very happy weekend!

  21. amber

    Nowadays I do like the semi-precious amber. There is plenty of it near the Baltic Sea and Poland.

    Michael, I don’t recall seeing any in China – do you have it?

  22. berry

    Amber is really a very beautiful and precious material. There are some ambers in China. I saw them in some arts&crafts markets here.

  23. ryegrass

    My favorite berries are raspberries. What are yours?

  24. sweet

    I’m not very familiar with different kinds of berries, I only know they are sweet, right?:)

  25. eternal
    Yes, berries are generally sweet and we have lots of them over here in Germany. But due to this prolonged winter we’re having, harvesting time will come later than usual.

  26. leisure

    I hope I can have an opportunity to visit Germany again to have a try of German berries.:)

  27. response
    And we in Germany still hope for spring to come!

  28. sea

    I believe it is spring in Germany now, is that right?

  29. earth
    Yes, spring has finally come!
    I have already planted some flowers and vegetables on my balcony as well.

  30. thought

    I believe your flowers and vegetables will grow very well.

  31. triathlon
    I have to admire people who are into sports and competition. This is just not my cup of tea.
    The only time you’d see me run is for “Freibier” (free beer) 🙂

  32. long

    I guess the free beer can make you run faster?;)

  33. garden
    I believe this is a Chinese proverb:
    “If you want to be happy for a day, get drunk.
    If you want to be happy for a year, get married.
    If you want to be happy for a lifetime, plant a garden.”

    Is gardening work or pleasure to you?

  34. dentist

    I’m not sure if it’s a Chinese proverb or not. Gardening is really a pleasure but most Chinese people can not afford to have their own garden at present. I hope Chinese people can become richer in the near future.:)

  35. sterile
    I imagine only the very poor have a garden to tend to as they need it, living in the country side. The middle class Chinese live in high-rise buildings in big cities, and the rich do not have to worry where their food comes from.
    Living WITH nature is very crucial to our survival.

  36. lease

    In China, some rich people live in houses and they would like to have a land nearby the house and plant some flowers or vegetables. I guess that is a kind of garden too?

  37. sentimental
    A garden can be anything, ranging from grass to flowers and vegetables, or also overgrown with weeds 🙂
    Spent a fantastic weekend in London to attend the wedding of a former student and soon I’ll post some photos on my travel blog:

  38. talk

    I believe your trip to London was very pleasant. Is your former student a girl or a boy?:)

  39. alkaline
    It’s a female student and the wedding was Sri Lankan style at the Gherkin (see images: http://www.google.com/search?q=Gherkin&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=zRuZUfScLc2RswbBjoHABw&ved=0CAoQ_AUoAQ&biw=1307&bih=981

    As the first invitations keep coming in, we realized there could be more weddings to attend in the future.
