    - Jill Duffy
    Marie Lazar, Michigan State University, The Video Game Name Game

    Ever notice how video game titles seem to repeat themselves? Super 64 this, UltraStar Chronicles that, Legend of the Magic Sword Kings ... it gets tiresome. But how well do you think you know video game titles?

    The Video Game Name Game
    Play with a friend, a group, or by yourself. Player 1 picks the title of a video game. Player 2 names a title that shares a word in common with Player 1's title. Player 3 thinks of a name that has a word in common with Player 2's title, and so on. Try to keep the chain of game titles going as long as you can. Other players are allowed to make suggestions if someone gets stuck, and the game ends when nobody can think of a way to continue the chain.


    Dragon Warrior
    Blue Dragon
    Lost in Blue
    Lost Legends
    Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    Super Princess Peach
    Superman 64

    Too easy? For extra challenge, pick a second title to be your endpoint when you start the game.

    Not a gamer, or have friends who aren't? Try playing with movie or TV titles, full names of famous people, or book titles (if you're with your MENSA buddies).
