Movie Jenga
« on: June 23, 2009, 07:28:17 PM »
I heard this game on a podcast one time...

Like the game Jenga, where you take turns adding blocks on a pile until the pile falls down, this game has you build onto movie titles with other movie titles.  You connect movie titles by sharing syllables before and after:

For instance, someone would start with something like:

Dead Man Walking

And someone might respond:
Better Off Dead Man Walking

You can add to the front or the back.  So the next response could be:
Better Off Dead Man Walking Tall

You can also connect by syllable only, for instance
Better Off Dead Man Walking Talking Head

Or...
Seven Years in Tibetter Off Dead Man Walking Tall

You can cheat a little with the "the"s and the "a"s of course
The Magnificent Seven Years in Tibetter Off Dead Man Walking Tall

can get followed by
Bartok The Magnificent Seven Years in Tibetter Off Dead Man Walking Tall





Not sure how we know when it's done?  Suppose it's worth trying?  Anyone want to start?

I'd be up for it. The game will be done when people start or end it with words like Bartok, lol :)

Birthirtheen doesn't quite work - it has a shared phoneme but not a shared syllable

Good place to start over??
