Four Degrees of Separation

Here’s a new party game or classroom game for you to play. There are only 4 degrees of separation between every word in the English language.

Example: Frog to Fog

Frog is amphibian. Amphibian is related to water.
Water is related to moisture, and moisture to fog.

Quarks to caffeine.


The word “Quarks” look like “parks.”
Parks have plants and trees.
Plants are where coffee comes from.
Coffee can be softened with Cremora.

Oops … what was that word again?

Quarks to caffine

That’s the easiest of the lot.

Quarks are elementary particles.
Elementary particles are in everything.
Everything includes caffine.
