Mental Calisthenics (6)

Mental Calisthenics are exercises that you can do by yourself or with a partner. The intent is to exercise different faculties of the brain and induce a meditative state of mind.

(6) is a game for three or more players. The rules are that one person, let’s call this person the leader, thinks of a word. Other players then must answer with a word that follows most closely in alphabetical order. The winner of the round is the person who answers most closely. The winner becomes the leader of the next round.

A sample interaction should go like this:

B: honeypot
