    Let's see how many of you out there are linguists!
    Or are handy with Google Translate. ;)
    Here are the rules of the game. You say something in one language.
    EX: The Apple. (English)
    Then, someone else has to say a different sentence that begins with the last letter of the last word in the previous sentence-- but in another language!! Sound confusing? Here's a continuation of the example:
    EX: The apple. (English) *The apple.*
    EX: Es delicioso. (Spanish) *Is delicious.*

    Then you continue. You can reuse a language, but only after 6 consecutive sentences have been written where the language hasn't been used. Here's a good example of a conversation:
    EX: The apple. (English) *The apple.*
    EX: Es delicioso. (Spanish) *Is delicious.*
    EX: Oui! Je suis d'accord. (French) *Yes! I agree.*
    EX: Dunkle Schokolade ist besser. (German) *Dark Chocolate is better.*

    Get it now? It can actually get pretty fun. You can probably tell from the examples, but let me clarify the format for your sentences:
    Sentence in whatever language(Name of Language in Parenthesis)*Translation into English within stars*
    The colors don't mean anything but to distinguish the appropriate parts of the post.
    Note: The sentences don't have to be relevant! Also, translation is required, even for English! :rolleyes:
    Ready? Go!

    Your post was supposed to start with "o" because "helado" ends in "o". Confusing, I know, but, no problem! We'll just continue on. :p
