This reminds me of Wheel of Fortune's Before and After category. Only you made it more fun and more difficult by adding a third person. Cool.

Fun type of teaser! Of course, since I live in cave I don't know many famous folk...

Another Good Teaser, I had more trouble figuring this out though. Good Job!
Dec 25, 2005

Liked this one. Only problem I had was the last one. His full name is Martin Luther King so I was trying to think of someone's name ending in Luther. Otherwise another good one
Dec 25, 2005

I liked this one as well, but I agree with Peppa. I had a harder time with the last one because I kept trying to come up with something other than Martin Luther since King was not part of the teaser. I totally went down the wrong path on that one. Still loved it....great job!

Actually peppamintp, his name is Martin Luther King Jr., and additionally, he was named after Martin Luther, who was an important figure during the Reformation and went on to found the Lutheran Church.

By the way, I only got three of them.
Dec 27, 2005

Eabreu92 is correct. The Martin Luther I was referring to was not Martin Luther King Jr. but Martin Luther the guy that the Lutheran Church was named after.

Just trying to make them a bit harder for all you super smart Braingle members.

Remember there is also a Name Train III out there to check out. Maybe I should work on a new one as well... Of course if any of you guys wanted to do a name train or two I would not mind having the fun of trying to solve them.

A bit of a challenge, but fun!
Mar 24, 2007

King Henry??? A bit of a stretch, no?
Mar 24, 2007

Mar 24, 2007

I liked that THX
Mar 24, 2007

The example doesn't really work, because it's Joan Jett, not Joan Jet.
Mar 24, 2007

This was ok.
Mar 24, 2007

I didn't know any of these people

It was...okay
Mar 24, 2007

Pretty Stupid
Mar 24, 2007

All I could think of for Fonda was Peter and Jane. King Peter? King Jane ? What a dummy....,. But I got all the rest of them. Thanks for a good eye opener this A.M.
Mar 24, 2007

Good teaser!!
Mar 24, 2007

took me a few minutes on the last one, but finally got it! great teaser!
Mar 24, 2007

I don't know many of the new popular people like Joan Jett and Joan Li.

I got Matthew Perry Mason and Bruce Lee Majors (oldies!)

I knew all the Fondas Jane, Henry & Peter
I knew Nelson Mandala but decided to look at the answers so I could understand it better since this the first time to do this sort of teaser.

The Fonda one did throw me for a loop.

Mar 24, 2007

OK. not the best. not most fun. but good
Mar 24, 2007

That was tough but a lot of fun! I skipped number three because I was looking for an actor "Larry." I took the hint and figured it out. Thanks!
Mar 24, 2007

A good teaser, but I have to agree that King Henry is a bit of stretch. It is called Name Train, not name and/or title train.
Mar 24, 2007

this one is alot of fun and quite easy except Rick James. so I worked that one from Luther to Rick. great teaser I loved it.
Mar 24, 2007

i didnt really get it
lol i do now though!

message me!
Mar 24, 2007

loved this but I never heard of Judd Nelson? how about more.
Mar 24, 2007

Mar 24, 2007

This is great. What fun. I loved it More please
Mar 25, 2007

I didn't understand it.
Apr 05, 2007

I barely tried, because names of people are not my forté. I did get Martin Luther and Nelson Mandela though.
Jun 19, 2007

I disagree with the use of King Henry, all the others are proper first and last names.
Aug 21, 2011

I LOVED this one! Maybe it's because I was able to figure them out! This was a good one and very clever! Thanks and more, please! Happy Sunday, friends!
Aug 21, 2011

AROB-need I say more.
Aug 21, 2011

i too really enjoyed this teaser, even though I did miss the last one. There are 2 more teasers in this series, would love to see even more, but as the poster has not been online in close to 2 years, that most likely won't be happening. Too bad this one was fun.
Aug 21, 2011

Rated it as Fun and fairly hard since I got stuck for quite a time in a thought loop of Larry Bird Parker Fonda trying to seriously convince myself that old "Hank" Fonda had an older brother named Parker that everyone else simply has forgotten.

Nice one.
Aug 22, 2011

I knew I was going to fail when I could only think of Winnie Mandela and take forever to have Nelson come to me.

Pop culture isn't my thing - I often fail horribly at pop culture/sports questions in trivia games. I did get Judd Nelson, because who HASN'T seen Breakfast Club a billion times, and I knew Martin Luther and Rick James for the last, but didn't couldn't think of Dean Martin (and living so close to Steubenville, I should really feel ashamed lol).

For the first one I got Lee as the middle name, and am ashamed I didn't get Matthew - as a history buff I should have guess it right out, since Commodore Perry was the guy that got Japan out of their shell and opened up trade with the West.

Good teaser, but wow did I crash and burn.
Aug 21, 2014

I got them all but #5, but did not care for this teaser too much. Sorry!
Aug 21, 2014

Got most of them, couldn't get from Larry to Fonda. Tried working backward but couldn't figure out a name that would go between Larry-Henry or Larry-Jane.
I settled on Rick for #5 only because it fit the rest of the puzzle (again started at the end). However, I have no idea who Rick James is.
Aug 21, 2014

I liked this puzzle. Even though I had done it previously, it seemed new to me. Thanks for posting!
Aug 21, 2014

Got hung up on #3 Larry(King), #5 Rick (Nelson) Thanx to Google I figured out #3 and had to cheat and look at answer to #5. Still don't know who Rick James is. #'s 1,2, & 4 were a piece of cake.
