Boy were the clues devious; I have to admit I did not understand most of the references; must be on a bad roll -- but keep them coming and I'll work them out eventually!

Well, this was sort of like Six Degrees of Separation. Very cool WP, Sploofanatic. It felt twisted, even though it wasn't one of your "twisted" ones.

I hope the chain links make a return engagement. I liked the idea of building on first and last names, which helped as you were trying to piece it together. Now that I see the entire list of clues - fabulous!

I had one puzzle phrase carve a few points from me but I enjoyed the concept.
I'll be ready for more such as this.

I would love to try another of these. It reminds me of the linked puzzles on one of my favorite NPR shows. I could never figure those out either! Good brain food, regardless.

The others look way too challenging!!!!
