I think I already see the new spam game:

"Bribing game a.k.a. How low will you go?"

A game where members are "encouraged" to give up all of their morals and personality for some virtual bucks :devious:

Yeah, I'll add some limit this year though - sorta like the five-post rule or something. Otherwise it could so easily turn into a frenzy with two or three people only, and incoherent sentences due to simultaneous posting etc...

We must have order! Order, I say!

I guess as long as the rules are enforced and they work somewhat like the caladont rules it should work fine

not when they don't match the previous sentence, if you read the previous "stories" they work cause they are disjointed to some degree, but coherent

A 2, 3, 4 or 5 ppl rule would be good, as for gramatically incoherent sentences, that's what the Edit button is for, and i'm sure you can "encourage" ppl to use it. :devil:

How about reviving the quiz game? I thought that perhaps instead of just having one quizer, all participants in a given week could send in questions. There could then be an alternating position as judge to whom the questions and answers could be sent. To make the questions interesting, one could make some rule that made the asker get 0.5 points for every participant, but only if 1 fourth of all participants could answer. This would encourage questions that would be in a good range of difficulty, I believe (exact numbers can of course be tweaked).

Right... there are several games running at the moment, yet I have decided to allow for one more. The "cooking game" is set to run for one month from today, after which I will decide whether it's a keeper or not. The game will be terminated if, during this trial period either of the following should happen:

- the game does not attract players enough to keep it alive... meaning it should entertain more than fjust a few people
- the thread is cluttered with off-topic spam

Instead of competing against each other,why not have a game where others will compete and we will just cheer?Did I confuse you?Good :devious: Now read on.

We pit HV heroes(it could be anyone else really,but this Im using current events :D )against each other.Each day,a person is allowed to hurt one hero for 10 hit points and heal another for 5 hit points.The game ends when either all but one hero is eliminated,or when one hero reaches the double of starting hitpoints.Now,the original game I ripped(Im a copycat,so sue me.If you find a lawyer willing to aid you,that is :devious: )gives everyone a start of 100 hitpoints,but considering how many heroes there are,we should start with 50 hitpoints.

So,what do you guys think?
