Saying I am a movie buff is a little understated. When me and my husband first started dating we bonded over movies. We used to (and still do) play 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon. You have to know a little something about movies and be able to remember the actors in them in order to play this game.
The concept is simple. Connect 1 actor (actress) to another actor (actress) by the movies that they have stared in with other actors (actresses). Each person comes up with one actor/actress. When you both have one, you say them out loud at the same time. Then you quietly and quickly try to connect the two actors. Sounds easy right? Let me give you an example!
I will connect Will Smith to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Step one pick who you are starting with. I am going to go with…
Arnold Schwarzenegger in Batman and Robin with Chris O’Donnell
Chris O’Donnell in Batman Forever with Tommy Lee Jones
Tommy Lee Jones in Men in Black with Will Smith
Okay, so I didn’t think this one through too much! I honestly thought that one was going to be a little bit harder, but it wasn’t. If you can come up with a good one let me know! I would love to give it a try! Either way, you get the gist of it!
This is a great game for long road trips, sitting and waiting for a table at a restaurant, on planes or at the airport and the dreaded waiting room in doctors offices. This is also a great game for anytime where you are just sitting and not doing anything, PERIOD!
The more obscure, the better. You have a girly teen movie that your friend/partner has never seen, then by all means use the B list actress in it to throw them a curve ball. Just be careful, because they will totally throw out a random extra in one of those “shoot em up” movies. Good Luck (in my best Liam Neeson voice from Taken)
