About the activity
One player starts by saying a word. The next person must say a word that has a connection to the previous, and so on. For example, someone might say “farm” and the next person might say “chicken”.
A person is eliminated if they take more than three seconds to answer, repeat a word that has already been said and/or say a word that has no connection to the previous word. Simple!
