Title Game

Let’s end 2010 with a little larceny. I’m gleefully stealing this from Jen Forbus: The Title Game.

Here’s how you play. One person starts by listing a title — of a book, movie, TV show, song, or poem (I’m liberal about the rules here, because it’s New Year’s Eve). The next person must list a new title that contains one word from the previous entry.

Let’s see how far we can take this without me forcing my relatives to log in under fake names to add my own entries.

And a title to start: A Darkness More Than Night (Michael Connelly).

Get to it!
