Make a Citizen out of the Words Above You

I came up with this game while playing against Citizen Dawn. I didn’t know where to put it so I put it here.

Basically, we all know that Citizens of the Sun have themed naming. Hammer and Anvil, Blood, Sweat, and Tears, the four seasons, etc. So I’ve taken that and made it into a game. The rules are simple, one player comes up with two or more related words (no more than four to keep things manageable) and the next player has to make a set of citizens out of them. Then that player has to come up with two or more related words for the next player to make a set of citizens out of and so on and so forth. For example:

Here’s the very first set: Rock, Paper, and Scissors.
