Oh crap, I missed a few rounds.  Is there such a thing as "retroactive voting"?  

Unfortunately, I cannot vote for this round, because it's impossible to choose 3 and even more difficult to put them in order.  

:)



 

you could always try.

While we wait for the final scores, has anyone got a game idea? Does raisin' bran wish to host again or is he truly disillusioned?

First Law was a good phobia idea that was not tried.

I was trying to come up with a variation on the longstrider game where we had to describe wonders of the world in our travel journal. I haven't come up with a gem but I got as far as some ideas based on reality shows:

1. amazing race - start from KL, ultimate destination is given, each round describe what journey you have undertaken and how. Or else the host dictates each leg - eg from KL to White Harbour. By 'how' I meant you might cover things like how you managed to get a fare on a ship etc not just tell us what route you took. Could assume you start with no money.

2. 'we drop you in it' - derived from some Tv shows and also from what someone described their sociology teacher doing to them in the 60s. Dropped them all off in a poor area and told them to try to get a job.

eg a night in fleabotton (dumped there with no money) - you describe the night

a day with the silent sisters

drinking with Tyrion

an invitation to Highgarden (how will you cope with high lords and ladies)

well yes for example

round 1 'you have been dumped in fleabottom without money' what happens?

wohgeav

or for the other

your assignment is to get to Lannisport. Did you succeed and if so, how?

I was not proposing a whole new type of game.

Standings

SWMBO - 49+15=64

Howlin' Howland - 36+7=43

Castellan - 22+8=30

Dolorous Gabe - 20+10=30

Lady Blizzardborn - 14+9=23

As it turned out, SWMBO did not end up stumbling right before the finish line. With a lot of support for her newspaper headline entry, she glided her way to victory. Congrats to all the contenders. well done. I liked how everyone tried to put their own spin on their entries.

And I am perfectly fine letting someone else take the reigns for the next round, be it the Longstrider game, or something else.

Efficiency? Whatever do you mean?

It seems to me that we easily completed 2 rounds every week when I started playing this, like 12 games ago.
