Game: Part of the Whole - Part 2

Postby Milla aka. the Slayer » Oct 24 2006, 15:04

Hi y'all :D

Stefan.urlus and I have decided to revive one of the fun games here in our beloved Campfire :) and in order to solve some of the biggest problems with this game we've decided to add some new rules.
The game has a tendency to slow down dramatically because no one posts a pic and we've come up with some ideas to prevent that :)
New rules are number 10 and 11 ;)

If you guys have any more suggestions on how to keep this game alive and thriving don't be afraid to speak up, just PM me ;)

Here's Corribus' original rules and explanation of how the game works:
The Chooser selects a picture of an object, crops is so that only part of the object is visible, and The Guessers must determine what the object is.

Rules:

1. The object must either be a common object, or a relatively well-known unique object. What is "relatively well-known" is left to the discretion of the Chooser, within reason. (For instance - Buckingham Palace is an acceptable unique object; your house is not.)

2. The Chooser must provide a general category for the object.

3. There are three initial free guesses.

4. A Guesser must wait until the Chooser responds to the guess before guessing again. Other Guessers may also guess, though, in the meantime.

5. If a guess is wrong, a free guess is consumed, if one is available. If no free guess is available, the Guesser is eliminated from further guesses in the current round (i.e., he is "Hung").

6 When a Guesser is eliminated by the Chooser, a new free guess becomes available. Free guesses are awarded after the elimination, not after the incorrect guess.

7. If three people are eliminated, the Chooser must post an expanded view of the object as a hint.

8. The correct Guesser becomes the new Chooser. The Old chooser posts the entire object for everyone to see, with, perhaps, the cut-out area highlighted.

9. There is no score; game continues until Kalah shutserdown.

10. If there are no guesses for two days then a new pic can be posted by anyone who wants to (if someone beats you to it - that is posting a new pic - then please remove your picture or delete the post ;)) <- NEW RULE

11. If the winner of a round doesn't post a new picture within 1 day someone else can <- NEW RULE

Those are the rules and I hope y'all would like to participate ;)

I'll post a picture soon to get this game going.
Enjoy :-D
