Select two leaders from the company. Each leader chooses players for
his side. The sides stand opposite each other. One leader begins by
giving the name of some river, mountain, lake, city or town, state or
country, located in any part of the world, that begins with the letter
A, the other leader answers back with another geographical name
commencing with A. The two leaders continue with the letter A until
they can think of no more names, then, they commence with B, and so
on, until every letter of the alphabet has been used.

The players on the opposite sides simply help their leader with the
names, as soon as one thinks of a name it is passed up to the leader
to help him. No place can be named twice. The side that stands up the
longest wins.

Another way to play this game is as follows. Having chosen the sides
as before, one leader begins by naming any place, lake, river, etc.,
commencing with any letter; the leader on the other side then follows
with a name commencing with the last letter of the previous name; then
the player next to the leader on the opposite side follows with a name
commencing with the last letter of that name and so on, each player
has a turn as it goes from side to side. Suppose the leader names
Washington, the next New York, and so on. Thirty seconds is allowed to
think of a name, if he fails in that, he must drop out. Any one may be
challenged to locate the place which he has named. The side which has
kept up the longest, is the champion.
