Are you playing this game in reverse or something? The posts have gone:

TG - Reykjavik
GB - Iken
TG - Reykjavik
AC - Ikast

The post after "Iken" should have started with "En" or "Ken"!
Sorry - i told him to go from IK, not realizing you'd said Iken.

And also, couldn't it be a place that starts with Iken (Ikenville)
GuyBarry wrote:In this version of the game, you have to post the name of a geographical location that starts with AT LEAST TWO consecutive letters from the end of the previous name. For instance, after Kingston you could have Ontario, Tonga or Stony Stratford. You can use as many letters as you like but you can't use the entire name.

I'll start: Cardiff.
Iken :arrow: Ikenville is using the whole name
