The Omni Magazine post in the blue
reminded me of a name linking series game that was a contest in it, and which I thought could be a good MeCha challenge →
The idea is to link as many names together as you can with some sort of relationship between the names. A popular link at the time was "Louis Leakey--Farrah Fawcett" The better ones have some overriding theme rather than just a link of names. Like they might all be philosophers names, or the links have a theme. I remember one Christmas break my oldest brother was visiting, and we were up in the mountains at my parents cabin, and we had a great time coming up with these while sitting in front of the fire with the snow coming down outside. A snippet of one of our best was:
"Madeline Kahn--Imannuel Kant--George Will--Daisy May"
Omni published the winners which, if I remember right were up in to the 20 links. If someone remembers the rules better, please update us here. So let's see what the MeCha bunnies can come up with!
