For the basic rules of shiritori, please refer to the first post of this post:
Because of a suggestion from @s1212z I’m opening up this thread for advanced rules. Each time a game ends, we can change the rules if that’s what the person posting wants at the time. As per another post, here are some suggestions of advanced rules:
@s1212z - since this was your idea I think it would be a good idea for you to make the first rules and start us off with the first word.
Let’s try this rule first (see below) and see how if goes. I think trying more than one rule at a time is just too hard and will create dead ends. Maybe we can try “genre” later on if this is a complete failure, haha
Just a reminder, words should more more than 2 kana
In normal しりとり you’d go from 電車 to シャレ so I think it should count as one. It’s viewed as one 音 in haiku.
With that I have a question ha ha, does small っ count as a syllable/音? In haiku っ is counted as a full 音… so やった would be 3 音and could be followed by…ったく? (but isn’t a full word, really…although I’ve read it as a stand-alone expression) … but there aren’t many 3音 words/expressions starting with っ. If I wrote 発火 （はっか）for example, there is nothing that starts with っか so it would be game ending, right?
