My friends and I play this online game… sort of.
What you do is you start at blockbuster’s website at the page for some movie. It will have a description of the movie, and maybe a picture, but most importantly, it will include a list of all the cast members who were in it, each name hyperlinked to the blockbuster page for that cast member.
So you click on a cast member, and you get a short biography, but more importantly, you get a list of every movie he/she was ever in.
Now if you click on one of those movies, you get another movie page, with another cast list. Click a cast member and you repeat the process.
THE CATCH --> you are racing against your friends, with a destination movie or cast member in mind. The first one to reach that page by only clicking link after link, WINS!!!
Then the winner uses the back button to recall each move, to prove that he used an actual movie-person-movie-person-movie-person… path, and pastes the full path into an IM, or post or whatever the official form of communication is.
Rules : No cheating.
No peeking ahead.
No starting before the official time.
You cant click on the director or producer, etc. Only cast members.
You ARE allowed to use your backbutton along the way, like an undo.
NOTE: This is sometimes called the Kevin Bacon game. I dont call it that, because I have never heard of Kevin Bacon. It works for any actor, trust me.
Any one for a game?
PS. unfortunately those of us with broadband have an unfair advantage. Perhaps we can have two leagues. The real test is whether you know your movies.
