I was trying to distract myself and I started thinking of degrees of separation. Actually, I was thinking of the Erdős number, but that’s just a specific example of the general idea. It’s better known to most through things like “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.”
So the game is simple, list “important” people and your degree of separation from them, so that we can all be connected to the same person through you!
You know someone who met someone, however briefly.
You are related to/close with, or work with, someone who worked with someone. Or you’re just straight up related.
ETA: Did I mention the people can be dead? They can be dead. It makes the game easier.
