It was my castle at least from this point!

I was only telling of a pocket replica, I had for voodoo purposes :ninja: 

And for the new game, I am sorry if my offer was distracting -- it seems most everybody would rather play Acrophobia. Is it true?

I am fine with whatever. I'll definitely host this Acrophilia variation at some point. If it isn't now I could try to extend the concept to three rounds to play at a later time.

I do believe the lovely Jez will make the competition even harder in Acrophobia. We might also see a return to acro games from Lady B, Fragile Bird and lil' ghost and some others who didn't join us for the excursion into philia, which would be delightful!

I would love to play an Acrophilia game at last. :P But if everyone else needs something more relaxing (what on Planetos has exhausted all of you?), I can wait. Just don't forget your plans.

No, obsession replaces exhaustion in about 5 mins. I am happy to play anything and interested to see any new variation on either game. So sign me up.

I'd love a game of Acrophobia.

Acrophobia sounds like fun!  I'd be up for giving it a go.  

That said, I would not say no to a quick game of Acrophilia either.  :D

And H'H of course :cheers:

 

We could do both. I'll put myself forward to host whichever doesn't get hosted.

I feel I should host a game of acrophobia, unless someone else is keen. I thought I'd try 'House Words' or 'Character Fates'.  Anyone interested and which topic would you prefer?

They both sound fun. :)

I think we've done variations of both those in the past but we would only have done seven Houses and characters. Either would be a lovely way to bring the game back.

 

I now have three rounds of this "slightly evil" version of Acrophilia. I'm calling it "Acrophilia Extreme"

Here's a basic rundown of the difference: in each round, the character answers will be split up into sets of 2 or 3, which will constitute a clue to another answer (or a mini-theme), then the answers (or mini-themes) to each set will have another link or answer to work out (kind of like a puzzle).

I might start a thread later to work out specifics. Do we want to play in pairs? And if so, how do we want the pairs to be organised? Should playing in pairs be an optional thing?

Oh my. I feel a bit light-headed already.

Haha

To clarify I will reveal here 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. Some of it will be more like working out a puzzle though, particularly in working out the links between characters.

Hopefully this makes it easier to understand?

So it is multiple levels of themes within a round. Would there also be a theme that linked rounds? Just to drive us mad forever?

And I am wondering how the mini-themes link but I suppose we'd have to work it out. 

Would you supply the extra clues to get to nine, if we did not have enough players?

I might put an acrophobia thread up and hope we get enough players.

Acrophilia and Acrophobia! I'm getting excited, too! :cheers:

I'd play in any formation.

Yes, basically.

I think I may have to hint towards what kind of thing you are looking for at times but I think it will work. It will be tricky though.

There's no overarching theme linking the rounds. I will indeed provide any clues needed to make the full number.

I will be starting the new thread at some point today.
