A game of finding and following sentences in street signage.

Gameplay

This game is played with words which are printed on stationary objects in the urban environment: shop signs, posters, bus stops, parked vehicles, graffiti, and so on.

Look around you for a word that could serve as the start of a sentence, and walk to it. Your sentence has now begun.

Without moving from that point, look around for a word that could continue the sentence, then walk to that.

You can't use more than one word from the same sign. You can add punctuation for free.

Repeat until you've finished a full sentence, or until you are unable to continue it. Score the number of words in the sentence, or zero if you got stuck.
