I have a suggestion for a new word game.

One person writes a sentence, and the next person has to use the last word of that sentence as the first word of the next.

The number of words in the sentence increases by one each time, from 2 up to 20, then returns to 2. Please indicate the word count in parentheses after each sentence.

Let us begin:

Have fun. (2)

Rare...no, well done. (4)

Seconds are the root of most obesity. (7)


Seconds are hours
The hours go so slowly
Still the sky is light
