Just a variation and combination on two themes we deal with in several games here.
Of course, it starts with an initial clue.
The clue must be followed by a word that has some logical association with it while retaining at least three of the letters of the clue
An example could be:
leather>> strap
Strap>> strip
strip>> disrobe. OK, get the idea?

So here goes
CULTURE>> RITUAL
