    JediJeff -I'd give you a big fat *tongue sticking out of mouth*, but there are no smilies, so I'll just have to deal with :p, which really doesn't have the same effect.
    You just wait *glares*
    I know I won't win, but do you have to be so darn fast?

    Well, it looks like everyone got so much cool Star Wars stuff for Christmas that the appetite for it has been sated. Wish mine was. I'd love to keep this stuff for myself. Hmmmm.... maybe I should play! J/K.

    But, one reminder for possible strategy:
    You don't have to have such nice short links as everyone has been having. You get a point for being the first to post a solution for any actor pair, so even if it takes you all 6 "degrees" it's worth posting.

    OK, today's names are:

    Richard Pryor AND Molly Ringwald.



    The last day to post solutions will be Wed the 28th of FEBRUARY. On this Wednesday (the 21st) I will post a list of all the actors names I've posed to you thus far and the SW actors they have been linked to. This is in an effort to aid you in posting more solutions for any of those actors.

    I will hopefully update that list on Friday and next Monday when I post the last 5 names.

    Good luck everyone!

    Oh yeah, and I have decided that EVERYONE will get something! There will be some kind of SW related consolation prize(s) given to anyone who earns any points at all. But I don't know what that stuff's gonna be yet.

    Okey dokey, heeerz whar we stand:

    Um... Autobot, Emma was already linked to Mark Hamill, and in only 2 steps, so no pt there.
    JJ, Richard Pryor was already linked to Billy and to Harrison, and you didn't do it in fewer links, so no pts for those.

    Current scores are:
    JediJeff13 47 pts
    JediAutobot 19 pts
    Mos Eisleian Radio 9 pts
    JediGemini 5 pts

    It may be difficult to oust JJ from 1st place, but it should NOT be too difficult to get in the prizes.

    In catching up on this topic, I wondered if anyone would note the Emma Thompson/Brian Blessed one-shot. They were both in HENRY V as well... :)

    This, of course, links anyone who appeared in Kenneth Branagh's version of Hamlet to the Star Wars saga in just two steps. (X to Branagh, Branagh to Blessed)

    I'm not playing, I just felt like passing that info along. :D

    So, it appears that the race is on. There will be 3 new actors sometime today, and 2 on Monday, and you can post solutions until and including Wednesday Feb 28. I'll go by CST, so that means it must show a post time on the thread by 10:00pm. After 10:00pm will be after midnight, and therefore Thursday.
