LaLaLa Laura  (laurabhoffman) This game is similar to
Let's Play, except we will use names of authors instead of book titles.

Someone writes the name of an author and the next person must list the name of an author whose first name begins with the last letter of the previous author listed.

For example, I write "William Shakespeare " and the following person must write the name of an author whose first name begins with the letter "E" such as "Edith Wharton" and so forth. If you really get stuck, you can use the first letter of the last name instead. For example, above you could use T.S Eliot. But, let's really make this challenging!

You can use any author, not just classic writers.

Have fun ...
