* ''Radio/CabinPressure''. The pilot and co-pilot have a lot of time on their hands, and one of the main draws of the series is all the travel games they play, ranging from I Spy to listing all the people named Brian they can think of - and yes, [[BrianBlessed Mr. Blessed]] is one of the first they can think of. One episode has them flying to Limerick, Ireland, and trying to come up with as many limerick poems as possible.

* ''{{Outnumbered}}'' does this in an episode where the family's stuck in the airport; Sue is stupendously bored with the game (she's playing with her 6-year-old daughter Karen, who's coming up with things like 'time') and fails to guess what might start with 'm', whereupon Karen turns and points at a Middle Eastern man shouting "MUSLIM!" at the top of her voice.

* OnlyFoolsAndHorses: Del and Rodney do this when stuck in a lift; they come up with "Walls".
* Rik on ''TheYoungOnes'' tried to get the other lads to play Botticelli, a guessing game, but Mike is the only one willing to even try to guess a famous person's name; when it was Rik's turn to guess, Mike ''made up'' his famous person rather than use a real one.
