    Joe what was originally known for was a game that was called the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon (the actor) which was a trivia game. Here is some more on that

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_Degrees_of_Kevin_Bacon

    Basicly because Kevin Bacon has worked with so many actors/actresses it was difficult to find any more than 6 degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon to say Erroll Flynn (I dont know how many degrees that is really). But that is the jist of it.

    What it would do is say the Erroll Flynn acted with someone who acted with someone who acted with someone who then acted with Kevin Bacon. Its a pretty fun game.
