Round 5 Authors and Results

1. Asha: I'm hiring greybeard.                                        Howlin' Howland  1+1+3+2 = 7
    Barristan: Why?
    Asha: Fighting mainly, to restore my father's crown.

2. Barristan: Ironborn! Help give Westeros finer monarch.  Castellan  1+1+1 = 3
    Asha: Truce? Regain father's chair?

3. Asha: Ingratitude hurts, grandpa.  Fragile Bird  1+1 = 2
    Barristan: Worse for me.
    Asha: Take revenge.
    Barristan: Meaning?
    Asha: Fight Cersei!

4. Asha: My... Uncloaked? Incognito?? What's happinin' Barry???!!!  rocksniffer  1+2+1+1+2+2 = 9

5. Asha: I hope grandfather will forgive my tongue. Receiving much female companionship?  Lady Blizzardborn   1+1+1+1 = 4

6. Asha: I hear guarding wasn't fulfilling!                  Dolorous Gabe  1+1+2+3+3+3+3+3+4 = 23
    Barristan: My task remains. My fealty changes.

7. Asha: Ironborn humbly greets warrior... Fleeing?  Julia H.  1+1+2+2+3 = 9
    Barristan: Meaning to rectify my failure, Captain.

 

Standings

1. Dolorous Gabe      33 + 23 = 56
2. Howlin' Howland    46 + 7 = 53 
3. Julia H.                   43 + 9 = 52
4. Fragile Bird            41 + 2 = 43
4. Lady Blizzardborn  39 + 4 = 43
6. Castellan                39 + 3 = 42
6. rocksniffer              33 + 9 = 42
8. PyroclasticFlow      18
9. lil' ghost                  9 + 1 = 10

And just like that, Dolorous Gabe roasts the competition and comes out on top of the leader board, jumping five spots in the process. But that does not put him far ahead of Howlin' Howland or Julia H. The last round has begun. Who will take home the metaphorical hypothetical crown?

As always, let me know if my calculations are off.

Final Standings

1. Dolorous Gabe      56 + 17 = 73
2. Julia H.                  52 + 18 = 70
3. Howlin' Howland    53 + 10 = 63

6. rocksniffer              42
8. PyroclasticFlow      18
9. lil' ghost                  10 + 1  = 11

The final round goes to Julia H., where Jaime was able to plead his case and, perhaps, keep his head. But despite the round 6 win, the game's crown goes to Dolorous Gabe, who submitted an entry where Jaime even goes as far as to provide Daenerys with counsel, something Jaime's sister would never accept. This game could have gone any number of ways. Congratulations to you all!!!

Thank you everyone for playing. It was a load of fun being your host. We lost a couple along the way, but despite only having 5 entries for the final round, we still got 7 players voting. I would consider my first attempt at hosting a success overall. But the success can only be attributed to the enthusiasm you continue to have for the game.

Magic no. 5! :D

Well played all! Julia and H'H, it was really tough to choose between your final round entries, they were both awesome!

I feel like one single entry won me that game. Thanks again for those critical votes!

Thank you Raisin' Bran, your first hosting gig was indeed a success. Great work on a great game! :cheers:

No doubt you will plot to draw level again and up your game accordingly. You always do. Harder with Julia around and H'H back in form though! Plus the impressive R'B to come back into the fold from hosting.

Speaking of hosting, I might be tempted to host again although I was working on developing a new Acrophilia game. I don't know if people might be interested in a kind of phobia-philia crossover type game, possibly? It would be split into authors and guessers, authors playing phobia and and guessers playing philia. Just a thought?

Oh that's funny.  My submission for round one had Davos saying "remember where you are."

Good game Gabe :cheers:

I don't think my feeble brain could handle that. 

I actually have a theme idea for an Acrophobia game but am entirely incapable of hosting at present.

I'm not actually sure how it would fully work, it's just an idea at this stage. I could just host a normal game of Acrophobia and wait a bit longer before reviving Acrophilia. Sometimes it's good to have a break from 'philia.
