I spent the day traveling to Kansas City for Worldcom, and had to nap when I got here because of getting up ridiculously early.  So I am astonished to see the results!  Thank you everyone for your support!

i thought we had extremely good entries every round, and I am so happy to see such strength from the ranks of the newcomers.  And I join in the chorus of praise for our great host, lil ghost!

i would say more, but I'm about to pass out!  Goodnight and gosh bless!

being the weirdo I am, I look back at the previous winners and Dolorous Gabe and Fragile Bird are tied with the most wins of Acrophobia with 4 each. Thought that was kinda cool / random.

I share no crown  unless I have to because someone else is too good to keep away.

Awesome. But could you two maybe be a bit less awesome for a couple of games? :P

I would be happy to oblige but a talented, pesky Bird keeps trying to take my crown and fly away with it.

Also, I will host a game sometime soon but it may end up being Acrophilia unless someone else does the one after the sniffer's game.

I may host a game after the kids get back in school. For the remaining weeks of summer though, I'm swamped.

All we need now is a theme...

I was searching for old games, but only managed to find back to 18.  Then I got lost reading those. Recommended reading for those in need of a giggle. 

:D

I, personally, loved the newspaper headlines theme and also especially enjoyed writing raven mail and themes describing characters in some way.

That gave me an idea...which on reflection might make another game entirely.

But how about characters' Tweets? I know there was a thread of those somewhere, but it was free-form. With acros it could be very different, and we could maybe add the fun of hashtags (so long as the total is less than 140 characters). Just a crazy idea. *shrug*

Intriguing idea. Would it be tweets about something specifically? At a particular moment in the story? Or just a random tweet at any time, about anything?

I love the idea of tweets. 

I was thinking along the lines of headstones/eulogies, but how depressing!

I will begin a new thread and hopefully we can get started next week when I am done with travel.

I will back the tweet idea. Though I have never written a tweet before.

I think it better be pretty specific. Not just "What would Tyrion tweet?" But rather "What did Tyrion tweet Shae after the Battle of Blackwater."

i like the idea of more specifics. but, also, it might be tough to do less that 140 characters based on letter, but then again, maybe not. it's quite an interesting idea. but, in the end, it's up to the host :)
