    Hello all.
    I receive a newsletter from a well known doctor every week. The newsletter always has a website to go to for a fun game. The most recent game was called the A-B-C game!
    First, select a category (some ideas are world cities, countries, states, food, automobiles, colors, animals, movies, boys' names, girls' names, etc.). Then, fill in a word that fits the category for each letter of the alphabet! For example, if the category is US cities, it could look like this:
    A. Atlanta
    B. Boston
    C. Chichago
    etc. etc. etc.!!
    Okay? The first category is countries!

    I tried to look them up, but it seems there's no country beginning with the letter X, however Western Sahara seems to be a country.

    Very good zamba! That category is now over, because all but two letters are filled in (Q and X- Western Sahara is W)! Very nice work. The next category is songs!

    Guess you're right. Japan/Jamaica should do.

    And, it seems like I forgot the letter Q -- Qatar (Quatar?).
