The Slightly Harder Around the World Game

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.

I can see this game becoming deadlocked if one chooses a place with a particularly complex ending.

@tubeguru: I agree, although being able to use more than two letters actually helps**. Maybe GuyBarry can restart with a single letter move if he judges the game is blocked.

** The Orange One found a rare Rg-- start, but lots of places start with Burg--, for example.

To prevent the game from becoming deadlocked, I suggest the following:
If there's no response within 24 hours, the previous player can post again. If this doesn't happen within a further 6 hours, it's "open floor" and anyone can restart the game from scratch.
