Hello, let's start this new game.

You have to give the word which contains two letters of the last consonant of the previous word.
For example: strobe........stabble


I start with the word "start".

Latter.

Hi, Sami. When you say "contains two letters" do you mean doubled back to back, as in your example, or just contains anywhere in the word? By the way, what's a "stabble."

Edit- Urban Dictionary: Stubble that stabs.
"Wait a day before you kiss me again, honey - your stabble is attacking me!"

Well LMcL, to make it easy I would say "contains anywhere in the word".

sensational

arrogance --> buttress ???

A problem with this game is becoming apparent, and that is the letter 'y', which everyone is conveniently defining as a vowel although it is traditionally considered as a consonant. So for our purposes it's a vowel, yes? There are only so many words with two 'y's after all.
