A world of difference.

Umm, I'd play, but how is it done?

I see two cents and a penny connecting but that breaks the chain for me.

Something must make a world of difference. Maybe it's the rules?

Learning the rules is half the fun of playing the game! But I'll give in and tell you. What is the connection between each item on the list?

Is that like saying what connects them all to each other, or is there some other thing that connects to them?

I can think of things that connect to each item on the list with no problem, it's trying to connect them to each other that seems a stretch to me.

Is this like TEGWAR?

They all share something in common. Check out the other thread.

It may be too obscure for us.

Really? I was worried that it was too easy. Ok here's a clue:
Television shows.

I did. There have been other threads like this and I tried to locate some that I even started.

Common Knowledge (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=580882) is one that refers to a daily puzzle (weekdays only) that I work every day.

Some of the older threads are much simpler and easier to grasp the connections in, so I was just asking for a little clarification of what's the objective here. Thus far, I'm still stumped. But, as you may detect, I'm interested in the thread. :)

It would appear that my TV trivia knowledge is not as good as I would have hoped.

Ok. I was too vague. I just didn't want to make it too simple. Here's a clue: they're all episode titles. And I just realized that the last one should be "The Invaders" and not just "Invaders". Oops!

Thanks for the tip. Yahoo! to the rescue: Twilight Zone.

I don't know; I never watched the Twilight Zone but I'm just adding my 2 cents. My favorite game is Christmas Invaders. :)

:smack: If there's more to it than that, I'm lost. Something that happens in those episodes? Some actor in all four? Rod Serling wasn't smoking?

I think it's just that all four phrases were Twilight Zone episode titles.

Me, too. Is that not it?

These are four Twilight Zone episodes, but there's something in common about these particular episodes. If no one gets it by the end of the day I'll admit defeat, realize that it's too obscure, and post the answer. But I think with a bit of Googling it shouldn't be too hard to find the connection.

Twilight Zone episodes featuring the stars of Bewitched. Good job!

I thought the connection would have something to do with Tina Yothers!
