    OK - this may be a new idea. The game works as follows:

    Two words are given, one is the start the other the end. The object is to make a chain of concepts from the start word to the end word - the shorter the better.

    Each word in the chain must relate to the last word.

    For example: bird (start) rock (end).

    Bird - penguin - ocean - ship - ship wreck - rock

    OK

    Start: moon
    end: hades

    Should be easy enough for most of you.

    Why not credit => card => poker? We should have a rule where the person who gets the shortest chain wins or something.

    Also, whoever comes up with the initial chain idea that results in the longest minimum chain wins too.
