  2. ACROPHILIA #19: EXTREME EDITION Welcome to this extreme edition of Acrophilia. It was mad before, in this version it's even madder! This time, clues in each round will be split up into mini-themes, with a further puzzle to work out after the mini-themes. Hopefully, this will become clearer as the rounds come. This is how Round One will look, to use it as an example: 1a) Character 1 clue 1b) Character 2 clue 1c) Character 3 clue 2a) Character 4 clue 2b) Character 5 clue 2c) Character 6 clue 3a) Character 7 clue 3b) Character 8 clue 3c) Character 9 clue Each number has a mini-theme, so there are three mini-themes here. These mini-themes together will be a clue to something else, an overall theme. The game will proceed as a normal game of Acrophilia does. You will receive a character and an acronym to work on and submit a clue. You will get the usual prelims plus a preliminary guess at each mini-theme in rounds one and three. Round two will be a little different. You may also ask one yes/no question about whatever you like. Points Scoring: Clues: 2 points per correct answer to the clues Mini-themes: 3 points per correct answer to the mini-themes Overall theme: 5 points Favourite clues: 1 point per favourite clue vote.

  5. This thread inspired me to go hunting and I found this Charlie Brooker talking about The Wire I'm happy!

  9. Isn't it the bare basic structure of a question but then filled with cheese and bacon?

  14. Feel better now, do you? Footage showed Aguero staying on the pitch despite the invasion, which shows guts, chatting with an opponent (suggesting "sore loser" is a fallacy). First, one cowardly idiot decides to pull at his hair from behind (takes it, no reaction), then another idiot decides to square up to him, invading his personal space, and he lashes out after taking it for a few seconds. He shouldn't have lashed out but it was quite understandable.
  15. One idiot throws the advertising hoarding and you deem that the whole lot are the most plastic bunch of morons around. Doesn't look much different to the reaction from Arsenal fans when Adebayor scored that goal.
  16. Well sure, the goading occurred as a part of the celebrations. And if Aguero has reacted badly, he was wrong to. Neither the invasion nor the reaction is acceptable. I've never said otherwise. He had the yellow card out. Then he got surrounded. Then he got the red card out. It doesn't take a genius. Instead of, you know, trying to deflect, why don't you retract the nasty comment you made about City fans?
  17. Fucking despicable comment. My understanding is that Wigan fans invaded the pitch to goad City players. My sources are admittedly other City fans. As to the sending off, the ref changed his mind due to Wigan players crowding him. A red's a reasonable call for the challenge but the circumstances were ridiculous.
  18. I like it a lot. It's a lovely movie. I just think it's the weakest film left.

  20. Well it was hastily put together and it can be difficult to find interesting themes. In this round it was especially tricky. My pool of possibilities seemed small. Perhaps with more time I could have found something more interesting.

  22. Don't overthink the overall theme.
  23. I don't trust anyone who doesn't get the genius of Up If you're not in floods of joyful tears when Carl finally opens Ellie's Adventure Book you must indeed be monsters! It comes around in a beautiful circle from being in tears of sadness at the end of the extraordinary montage. And the music is wonderful!
  24. Just under 9 hours, people. You can have a prelim guess at the overall theme. I won't be releasing the answers on the thread at the deadline. It will be extended for just one pair who have had no time at all in a really bad week. I will let you know the answers in private threads if you like but there can be no discussion about the round in the thread. Sorry for any inconvenience but it would be unfair on the pair with the best score at the deadline if others were given time to catch up.
