Famous People
« on: February 06, 2009, 10:40:28 AM »
This is a game I played with a friend of mine. Basically, you have to come up with someone famous whose name starts with letter that the previous name ended with. For the purposes of clarity (in some cases such as "Catherine the Great") I suggest underlining the letter from which play is intended to continue (ie- Catherine the Great vs. Catherine the Great) So, the game goes like this:

If the first name played was:
Catherine the Great

then...
Timothy (from the Bible)
...would be a legitimate response...

[Oh, and maybe in cases where you're not sure if many people will recognize the name you're about to play... since this is online, you could include hyperlinks to wiki/imdb pages...]

I'll start us off with the end of the example...

Timothy
Noli me tangere! Nescio ubi fuisti!
Don't touch me! I don't know where you've been!

Marquess of Pembroke
Duke of Saxony in Her Majesty's Court
Knight of the Swan for Her Imperial Highness

...resistance was obviously useless against a family that could invent italics.

I don't think it does, that's the whole point of underlining one to begin with.  :)
