Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is a trivia game based on the concept of the small world phenomenon and rests on the assumption that any individual can be linked through his or her film roles to actor Kevin Bacon within six steps. The game requires a group of players to try to connect any individual to Kevin Bacon as quickly as possible and in as few links as possible. The name of the game is a paraphrase of the “six degrees of separation” concept. In 2007, Bacon started a charitable organization named SixDegrees.org.

The Bacon number of an actor or actress is the number of degrees of separation he or she has from Bacon, as defined by the game. This is an application of the Erdős number concept to the movie industry. The higher the Bacon number, the farther away from Kevin Bacon the actor is.
