While traveling I used to play a game with whoever
was in the car with me. What we would do is have one
person start off with the phrase "I'm going to
California and I'm going to take a...". Then the
person would finish the phrase with a word beginning
with the first letter of the alphabet. Then the next
person would repeat what the first person said, but
also add a word beginning with the next letter of the
alphabet along with trying to remember all of the
previously listed items in order. If a person missed
an item, they lost or were counted "out" if more
than two were playing. If the whole alphabet went
without a winner, then it would begin with the letters
going backwards until there was a winner.
