Want to play the name game?

Asked by jstringham21 (640points) June 9th, 2008

PnL brought us the Places game, so lets play the name game. Here’s how to play. I name a celebrity of some sort (actors, athletes, singers, presidents, person from history, etc.) first and last name. Your response must start with the first letter of my celbrity’s last name.

Ex – I say Tom Hanks. You then say Henry Ford.

Rules:
1. No back-to-back posts by the same person
2. No googling, unless you get an X or something nearly impossible like that
3. If you see someone crafting a response, wait until they post, then post yours.
4. No repeats. Use CTRL + F to search for used names.

Good Luck!

One word names aren’t covered in the rules. So I revert to the Places game rules, using the last letter of the previous word to start mine.

applying robmandu’s rule…..
Nick Nolte

jstringham21's avatar

Only one problem with that, rommandu.

Superman is fictional.

eambos's avatar

Ahem, I stand by “offence.” Check any dictionary before you insult my spelling.

robmandu's avatar

@j, nothing in the aforementioned rules said he couldn’t be. They say the name must be of a “celebrity of some sort”. And celebrity is defined as a person who has a high degree of recognition by the general population; a famous person. Superman is definitely recognizable. ;-D
