Advanced Shiritori

大和言葉

やまとことば-native words from Old Japanese

Haiku rules regarding kana count is best! @matt_in_mito, could you add that in the original entry?

  1. 促音(little っ) as the first kana is a game ender
  2. 拗音 (ex. しゃ、きょ、にゅ) = one kana

So I guess 領収書 to 食中毒 was end game but whatever, we’ll just keep going. The idea of adv. shiritori was to push for less common words, not more game endings :slightly_smiling_face:

ボール投げ

ボールげ - playing catch

Usually in regular Shiritori, verbs are avoided because you get too many る endings but I guess it doesn’t matter here :slightly_smiling_face:
