I heard this game on the Rosie O'Donnell radio show a while back. You start with a set of random letters, and each person has to come up with a famous person whose initials use those letters. 

 

So, to start with, you intertwine two famous names to come up with the random letters. I'm going to intertwine Gayle (King) and Oprah (Winfrey): 

 

G O A P Y R L A E H

 

Okay, so those are our random letters. Now, the first person has to think of a famous person whose initials are GO, the next person has to think of a famous person whose initials are OA, then AP, and so on. I'll start: 

 

GO = George Orwell

You guys rock -- we finished that one!

 

 

 

I'll start a new one, with Jennifer (Aniston) and Courtney (Cox):

 

J C E O N U N R I T F N E E R Y

 

Se we'll have to do JC, then CE, then EO, then ON, and so on. 

 

 

 

I'll start. JC = Jordan Catalano (fictional, yes, but famous nonetheless -- swoon!)
