夫婦茶碗

In Module 3.13, Matsuura-さん talks about the children's game しりとり.  One person says a word to start, and then the next person must think of a word that starts with the last syllable of  that word. It sounds tailor made for a forum and a great way to learn new vocabulary. The one rule is no posting a word that ends with ん because no words in Japanese begin with that syllable. 

Shall we play? / あそびましょうか?
