View Full Version : Player Chain

04-16-2008, 02:32:52
Here's how this works: Somebody will post the name of a professional athlete, and the next person will post the name of another pro athlete (and how they are similar to the previous one), based on 5 relations. These relations are:

1. The two athletes went to the same college (if they went to college at all)
2. The two athletes share the same first or last name.
3. The two athletes played on the same team at one point in time.
4. The two athletes play(ed) the same position.
5. The two athletes have (or had) the same number.
To add a twist to the game, if somebody uses the same comparison as the previous person, they have "forfeited" the game, and a new player chain begins.

Also, no players that do not exist.

Example (wrong way): Forrest Gump

Have fun! :)

No I mean like a player, let's say Michael Jordan, then you'd say: Scottie Pippen (same team). ;)

Matt Holliday (same position)
Then you'd post another athlete based on one of the five relations, except the one I just used, and put that in () after the player name.
