  1. @Buckwheat, I would love to join in and share some beautiful art, or more likely, childish doodles!
  2. Wow, me too! Although I am sure I can remedy this situation - sadly not so sure about Philia this round.
  3. Wow, thanks! I had the Witch King as the answer to clue #4 and now you have saved me from the spelling police. You are officially my hero!
  4. Wow, you are confused @Eternally_His, this game, like all the others I play at least, is not just abut the game but being together exchanging ideas and thoughts about the clues, the game, the world and life. It is the reason I allowed my N'onc Sniffer to convince me to participate all those yrs ago and I still enjoy it. No one is more competitive than I am but this is what a good friend told me about the Games Forum - Lighten up and have fun! As to the topic that is not the topic - I was given a chapter to read recently by N'onc and it turned out to be a great start to a good story. I am intrigued by the parts I read and I have been encouraging the editorial helper to get on the stick, give the critique so the talented author can get on with it!
  5. Wow! Way to go @Julia H. ! I knew I was doomed this round but that was the best entry ever and deserved every vote it received!
  6. Wow, I see in the last round @honeyed chicken and I had the same idea! I guess great minds really do think alike! Rd 5 voting: 1) 5 2) 1 3) 7 Great job, everyone!
  7. Wow! Or should I say - Whew! It could have been so much worse. I was convinced the theme was obvious since I had 7/9 on prelims and improved to 8/9 when @Jez Bell's wonderful clue became clear to me (I had Jaime to start remembering his conversation with Tywin about becoming Lord of the Rock and Jaime refusing, choosing to remain in the Kingsguard). But the hints had me focusing on words, just not the right words. I had even noted all the house words when I discovered the coyly hidden links to sigils! Congratulations to @a free shadow, @Castellan, @Eternally_His for seeing what was in my face! As for Ser Rodrik, and the clue of death - cost me third place @Dolorous Gabe because he refused to fit in my theory of theme switching houses, so Willem Darry got the call.
  8. Wow! I am very disappointed that Doran is not listed in the wiki as a cripple or being crippled. Now it is painfully clear that I need to join a re-read group!
  9. Interesting group this round, it makes the choosing more difficult. Rd 3 vote: 1) 4 2) 2 3) 1
  10. Wow! Great work on Rd 1 Miss Bird! Rd 2 vote: 1) 9 2) 4 3) 8 Honorable mention to everyone else!
  11. Wow! Good job, everybody! Rd 1 vote: 1) 1 2) 8 3) 5
  12. Wow! Great clues everyone! Two had me from the beginning because I was so sure of them and thus I struggled trying to figure out which other two were wrong. Luckily I was forced once I had theme to abandon the ones I thought were true because they had no king brothers. Excellent round @Julia H.!
  13. I was slack due to family issues but might have benefited from probing - Uncle Sniffer says so anyway! However I have made up for it by sending in my description lickity split!
  14. Wow! I am so happy you are doing it and not me! I also love the theme. Message coming!
  15. Wow! Excellent job everyone - but me! On the last describe I did not notice that the picture was long so I did not scroll down. Oops, sorry but it was funny! I will make an effort to do better during your game @Yet another Arya !
  16. I thought this would be a great idea, but it seems I am confused. I thought it would be easy for AcroPHOBIA but I don't think it would be easy for PHILIA. Since I happened to eek out a win in our last game of AcroPHOBIA, I might be compelled to do a PHOBIA game where we do just that. I will give it some thought for a day or so then proffer the game for us all to discuss.
  17. Wow! Well done @Julia H.! I thought I had you but it never fails I ended up a dollar short. The game was really challenging @Dolorous Gabe I enjoyed the mix up of rounds. It made the ferreting out of clues and especially themes tricky! To everyone else, great job! I was impressed by everyone's ability to dig down and find explanations for the clues!
  18. Wow! Welcome back @Jez Bell! I see my competition just keeps getting stronger! Good luck to all!
  19. I see that sarcasm is not something you embrace. To be honest I only scored 4/7 in my prelims and have not felt good enough about any of my ideas to even have a theme guess yet. You should learn to laugh more, this is a game after all. In addition, although I am not used to saying this type of thing about myself- I was just considerate to you. I offered some advice, which was told to me by an oldtimer to this game when I started playing. I used it and it helped me play well, and even win a time or two. I also seem to remember welcoming you earlier, to which you did not respond or even seem to notice. Consideration works both ways. And by the way, I was attempting to help you, and the rest of ,us all by trying to get our host to give us a yes/no question, which can be the most helpful thing he can give us - in addition to holistic, healthy herbal recipes.
  20. We can not offer more than encouragement @Eternally_His. Only the Dear Leader may give hints to the nature of the world and our part in his reality. Nevertheless here is some advice, the sage part is questionable - don't overthink the ones you feel good about, then do some text searching or wiki searching to see what those characters have in common. There is a thread, somewhere here in the games forum, with old themes to give you ideas about things chosen and the kind of other things that might be chosen. Once a theme was literally "cast a shadow on a wall while walking on stairs" or some such. Don't worry you will get better every time you play!
  21. Wow! Who knew you could be so kind! I'm glad you will save it for a future game! I look forward to trying to tie you in knots with my extraordinarily well worded yes/no questions. Sadly no opportunity for that phenomenal word joust this round.
  22. An ignore list, speaking for myself no you are not being ignored, just put in the little red chair in the corner! I think your addition to our game has been entertaining. Especially watching the regulars learn to adjust themselves and stop shouting at ghosts on their lawn! Never fear @Eternally_His, you are one of us now, so be prepared to deal with oldsters like my N'onc Sniffer, a self-described asshole who only cares about being shocking and talking trash, and OCDers like me, who strive for perfection to the exclusion of all. So in case I forgot to do this - Welcome to the local insane asylum known as Acro-World! Oh yes and to the Dear Leader @Dolorous Gabe- Sunday works for me as well, even though I know all the answers and have at least 3 themes working right now!
  23. Wow, I really like several of these clues! My leftovers are usually not very good but here are a few of them that were either rejected or just did not make the cut. For Daario: Flamboyant ribald nature. - I agree, it could be anyone in this series! Quite impressive colored beard and erotic weapons. - This one was so easy I might as well have used his name. I only had one extra for Tywin, who proved difficult to describe with the letters available. Tyrannical vilified father. - This was just too ambiguous. For Arya my final clue was sort of a combination of these two: Dauntless initiate says bedtime hate tally. Dexterous, intrepid, spunky blood-letter. Heartfelt tenacity.
