The game is played as follows: two actors are given and must be connected through appearances in television shows or movies. The object is to connect the two actors with the fewest connections possible. Please READ THE RULES BEFORE POSTING, KEY RULES HAVE BEEN PUT IN BOLD! Sorry to make another change in rules 3 and 5, a couple participants are getting too far ahead.

ROUND VI

Gene Wilder to Johnny Depp

Set point value = 6

Some rules:

1) You may only post a connection of an actor to a movie/TV show already established in the list. For instance, you may say "Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump" only if either Tom Hanks or Forrest Gump have been previously mentioned.

2) Posts should be in the form of: "actor" in "movie/television show" format. Do NOT do "actor X to actor Y in movie A". This keeps the game so others can participate.

3a) You may only post ONE connection every three hours. After posting your connection, you must wait for three hours unless the connection has been established.

3b) You may not double post. This is to prevent people from getting too far ahead as is the case now.


4) Once the actors are connected, you may post a list of all the connections regardless of any previous rules. The next round will begin in ~24 hours (at the discretion of the administrator) after the original connection is established.

5) During the ~24 hour period after the original chain, a shorter connection may try to be established. Should one be established, the one who establishes it (and any others who may help) will receive half points for each link they provided. All those who participated in the original chain will still receive full points.

6) You may only use movie appearances or TV show appearances. The exception are TV shows which regularly have guest appearances as part of the show (Saturday Night Live, Jay Leno, etc.). However, a guest appearance on, say, M*A*S*H* would be acceptable.

7) You may NOT use cartoon voices, directing/production roles. The actor must have actually appeared in the movie to be valid.

8) You may NOT use IMDB or any other refererence/database to assist you. There is no way to enforce this, but let's keep the game honest.

Points are awarded for each person having a piece of the shortest connection. The number of points awarded are given in each round.

The winner and possibly runners up will be granted a custom title. Even if you do not know a lot of movies, feel free to post what you know.

For reference:

Round I
Round II
Round III
Round IV
Round V

Gene Wilder in Young Frankenstein.

—Alorael, who has no connections planned. He just considers it criminal not to bring up Young Frankenstein when given the opportunity.

I believe that was Zozo if memory serves. Also, was it not the city of liars?

Zoso was what the symbol that Jimmy Paige contributed to Led Zeppelin IV, and is one of the names it is known as. My location is an alusion to "The Immigrant Song". In case you can't tell, I'm a Zep fan :P

I succeeded in solving the connection in 4 degrees between the two, but I won't give it away. ;)

Thieves and liars usually are one and the same. :P

Originally written by An error of type -13 occured:

We've already been given that Depp was Willy Wonka in the recent "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," so my contribution is...

Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka in the original "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!"

Does that solve the connection?

...ah, shoot. The rules say it doesn't.

That was the theme of this round and yes, I did make sure that no actors were common in between the two movies.
