The game

Take two people in a car. Add several multiple-hour trips. (10 hours and 18 hours total, respectively). Add boredom and proneness to car-sickness when reading.

What you get is a game.

Person A. selects first and last letter of a word. Person B. fills in the blank. Ex: t-y, tasty. Or tardy. Or any such thing. Person B then thinks of a word starting with the last letter of the previous word, and A gets to guess it based on first and last letters of the new word. Ex: y-r, year->r-n, raisin.. and so forth. Words have to be 4 letters or more. Names of people/characters are not acceptable, names of places are. Brownie points are given for longer words. I'm sure someone could come up with a comprehensive scoring system for something like this (if it hasn't been done already), but we're not at that stage yet.
