Okay, I admit it--the game is really called 'Kevin Bacon' or 'Peter Gabriel,' but I was trying to give it a Thanksgiving theme! Here's a fun way to pass some time:
You start with the name "Kevin Bacon," then the next person has to name a famous person starting with the same letter as the previous person's last name. It can be an actor, actress, singer, cartoon characters, political figure, sport hero, etc. Basically anyone who is famous is fair game.
For Example: First Person says: George Washington = Whitney Houston
Second Person Replies: Whitney Houston = Homer Simpson
Third Person Replies: Homer Simpson = Sandra Bullock (and so on)
Make sure and note both the response you are replying to, and your response (like I did in the example). That way, if several people post at once, then it gives the next poster an idea of who to reply to without messing up.
