    Completely agree. I found S5 harder to love than S4 (less of that beautiful bittersweetness that had in tears several times) but its overall thematic arc is even stronger. Knowing where it goes, I found a second viewing incredibly rewarding, elevating it yet again. Very much top for me.

    Acrophobia 34A&B: PART B starting soon - SIGN UP

    Hey all I am suspending the game's beginning till the new year for the sake of a couple of players, if y'all don't mind. I was happy to launch into it but truthfully I could use a little break and I would probably have asked for a couple of weeks' break over Christmas and New Year anyway and December is already pretty busy as it is. In three weeks we'll start it back up again. Sorry about that. I love that loads of entries have already come in for Stannis.

    ACROPHOBIA 34 PART B More Character Autobiographies ROUND ONE: STANNIS BARATHEON Kicking off Part B, Stannis has decided that a book might be the best way to further his cause. What would he write about Robert and Renly, about Cersei and her brood, about Storm’s End and the Blackwater, about the coming war for the dawn? What do you think he would name his tome? Acronyms: K H P I N M A S L D M W The deadline to enter will be on Tuesday December 11th at 7pm UK time sometime in early January

    Can't decide whether to start a new thread or to just use this one for Part B.

    ROUND SEVEN RESULTS Sniffer’s votes: 1st) 6 2nd) 1 3rd) 3 1 WINTER’S HAPPENING, HONESTLY! She Who Must Be Obeyed 1+1 +2+1+2 = 7 2 Catacomb Confessions: Targaryen of Winterfell Jez Bell 1+1 +1+2+2+3 = 10 3 Where Honor’s Headed… RhaenysBee 1+1 +3+3+2+3+1+3+1+1 = 19 4 Winter’s Heavy Heart Howlin’ Howland 1+1 +3+1+3+2 = 11 5 Catastrophic Conspiracy…”TOWER OF WOE” rocksniffer 1+1 +2+3 = 7 6 Why Headless, Hand? honeyed chicken 1+1 +2+1+1+2+3 = 11 7 For My Kids - “Ironic” Fragile Bird 1+1 +1 = 3 The final round was won individually by RhaenysBee with an extremely clever double-edged title, a brilliant winning title to end the game on. Howlin’ Howland, honeyed chicken and Jez Bell battled it out for the second-most points with three excellent and very different titles. In any other round they could each have been winners. Now to the conclusion of Part A. AND THE WINNER IS… Once more, thanks to everyone for participating and a special thanks to Castellan for reappearing and voting in each and every round. I’ve enjoyed hosting because the standard of entries has been fantastic. Here are the characters and their winning titles: Lovers A Sibling’s Devotion By Cersei Lannister Outcast: Assumed Dead By Jon Connington Pricks, Nitwits, Nincompoops By Olenna Tyrell Aemon: Voluntarily Chained By Aemon Targaryen Tully’s Spit ‘Pon Me?! Die!! By Walder Frey What Lies Beyond Winter By Catelyn Stark Where Honor’s Headed... By Eddard Stark

    Hey all, thanks for voting and of course thanks for playing. I've enjoyed hosting this edition, I think autobiography titles really suits the game. I am super tired so will probably wait till tomorrow to do the final count. This also gives opportunity for another vote or two to come in. Does everyone want to launch straight into Part B or wait a little while?

    ROUND SIX RESULTS Sniffer’s votes: 1) 2 2) 7 3) 1 1 Don’t… - Preaching Clarity RhaenysBee 1+1 +2+3+1 = 8 2 What Lies Beyond Winter? Howlin’ Howland 1+1 +3+2+3+2+2+3 = 17 3 Who’s Left - “Bloodless Woman” She Who Must Be Obeyed 1+1 +1+3+3+1 = 10 4 Womanly: love, bravery, work Raisin’ Bran 1+1 +3+1+1 = 7 5 Deliverance: Postmortal Combat Jez Bell 1+1 +2+1+1+3+2+3 = 14 6 Desperate Prayers Confessed rocksniffer 1+1 +1 = 3 7 Widowhood Leaves Broken Woman honeyed chicken 1+1 +2+2+1+2 = 9 Jez Bell 60 + 14 = 74 rocksniffer 58 + 3 = 61 She Who Must Be Obeyed 46 + 10 = 56 / Howlin’ Howland 39 + 17 = 56 RhaenysBee 45 + 8 = 53 honeyed chicken 33 + 9 = 42 Raisin’ Bran 33 + 7 = 40 Fragile Bird 25 + 1 = 26 (point for voting) Castellan 1+1+1+1+1+1 = 6 (points for voting) Howlin’ Howland wins the round with a terrific philosophical title, climbing powerfully up the standings in the second half of this game. Jez Bell scores strongly again with a snappy and strong title about undead revenge. It was a fine round of titles fought hard by all. Each can argue a strong case that it deserved more points and in any other round it probably would have got them. Please check my tallies in case a mistake was made. Will give a short extra time to see if one more entry comes in for R7. If you want to change your entry for the last round, let me know ASAP.

    See, from my perspective in this particular game this becomes too specific. I prefer titles less on-the-nose. But hey, we all have our own interpretations. That's part of the beauty of this game. Had I been voting, either version would have gotten a vote from me. As previously stated, my preference between them is marginal.

    QUESTION: Can you all be done by Friday midday UK time? I ask because I will be unable to do the results and new round throughout the whole weekend.

    PART A ROUND SEVEN (FINAL ROUND of PART A): EDDARD STARK For the finale of Part A, the Ned found time to collate his memoirs whilst contemplating life and death in his cell in King’s Landing. One would expect him to be straight, honest and to the point about everything with perhaps one glaring exception. Or would he? What is Ned’s title to his autobiography?
