    Calling out to all the geographers and other similar crazy people out there. The countries game has a simple premise: one person names a country, town, or city (no villages, states, or continents allowed; a good guide as to whether a settlement is allowed is if it would appear on a wall map of the world). The next person will then name another beginning with, say, the second-last letter of this one, and this goes on until nobody can continue. The letter position named at the start of a round stays for that whole round. The last person to have posted wins that round, and can then post the beginning of the next round with a new letter (i.e. changing from second-last to third. I suppose they could also do the same one as before). The big catch is that you are not allowed to repeat any previously named country/town/city from the current round.

    So, I'll start: Russia (3rd-last letter).

    Ah, probably should have specified: the letter set at the start of a round stays for that entire round. So it's still the third-last, i.e. O.

    Orlando.
