Vocabulary Game

VOCABULARY GAME😎


It may sound stupid but it has a purpose.
Most of the people here are learning English yet so it'll help 'em a lot.

Goes like this:
I type any word, so the next person will just type another word starting with the last letter of the word I typed. Whichever pops up to your mind.
Note:-u have to play alternatively
Example:

I say:
Something

Next person says:
gastronomy

My word is
CRAZY
