A NEW Word Game

Based on the success of Riddler's Word Association Thread, I'm starting a new one.

In one of the Black Fleet Crisis books (I can't remember which one), a few New Republic personnel were playing a word game over their ship's intercom. It went like this:

One person says a word. (eg. Tower)

The next person says a word that starts the way the previous word ends. (eg. Error)

(Go by the last syllable.)

(Proper names and non-english words aren't allowed.)

I'll start with

I believe he meant start a new word using whatever letters are in the last syllable of the word he posted, not post a word that rhymes.

I don't have to look it up; icth means fish, and oid means form or shape, so I assume it means fish-shaped.

And bulbous, acronyms, unless widely accepted ones such as radar and laser, are not considered words. Stick with proper english

I don't much prefer proper nouns, seeing as how any name can be made up to form a word, but I will let this slide.

Well, I'm at a loss.

Beaten at my own game, how humiliating.
