Re: Longest last-letter sentence

Hi tucker,

Welcome to the game! smile

Sorry, but your "nevertheless" is invalid because the first letter of your word has to be the same as the last letter of the previous poster's word (see quittyqat's rules in post #1).

I thought this game had ground to a halt.

A couple of things:
- Progress along the way has been quite difficult because of the overuse of words ending in 'y'; and
- unless your word can somehow take this into a different direction and still make sense, a noun or adjective may fit best next.
