Default Concatenating word game

Let's start a new game! Knowing it work much better in German, I still have hope it will work in English, too.

Rules:
  1. Each entry has to classify as a valid English compound. This includes those which may include one or more hyphens. Each entry has to be unique to this thread.
  2. Assuming the previous post contained an n-part English compound, the followup entry must start with the last 1 up to n-1 parts of the previous entry while not changing their order and must add at least one additional part.
  3. If for some veryfiable reason no valid next iteration can be built, this has to be stated and a freely chosen English compound can be used.
  4. A player must wait for another to play before playing again. i.e. you must wait a turn between your own turns.
Please suggest additional rules if you deem them necessary. They could be included for future posts.

Example:
flashlight
\(\;\;\;\;\downarrow\)
lightsaber

First entry:
lightsaber
