Cast-o-phobia: We have a winner!!

Recommended Posts

Greetings Acrophobia fans!

Our current game of acrophobia is delayed by absence of the hostess, so I've dreamed up a little filler while we wait.

Here are the rules:

Each round instead of a scenario and a bunch of letters, I'll give you a GOT character and the current actor(s) in that role. Your job is to message me with two alternate actors, a first choice and a back up. If two players name the same actor first choice, the first one submitted gets that nominee and the second submission gets their backup. If both a player's 1st choice & back up are taken, I'll contact the player and let them nominate a third actor. The voting will be similar to acrophobia. Three ranked votes each player (including drop ins) with point values of 3 for 1st, 2 for 2nd, 1 for third. Your submission can be an actor who is already in GOT in a different role, just as long as it is not somebody is or has played that role in the show. There will be ten rounds and I will try to keep an up to date score tally as we go along.

Questions so far?

First character is Catelyn Stark played in the show by Michelle Fairley.

I'd like to keep this moving. Deadline is 7am EST (USA) Friday Sept. 28, I am hoping for at least 7 submissions. If we don't reach that number by Friday morning, I will push the deadline back a day - but really hope not to have to do that.

HC, if not all the acrophobiacs are interested I'm sure you can advertise this game to other forum gamers. It is very different after all and might appeal to a wider range of forummers.

Thanks. Well it is certainly near the top of the index for all to see.

I've got four submissions now and am trolling for at least one more - five would be nice!

I will run round one tomorrow whether I get another submission or not.

Thanks to those four of you who have sent in submissions!

You rang, m’lord? 

So what do I do, just send HC  option a and b  to recast catelyn Stark? (I never played the actual acrophobia)

Yes. That would be perfect - then we'd have six submissions - not a bad number to start with.

Round One: Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley in GOT)

If you were tasked with selecting a new actor for the part of Catelyn Stark, who would it be of these six? Please vote for three and rank your votes. !st gets 3 points for the player who submitted this actor, 2nd gets 2 points and 3rd gets 1 point.

- Catherine McCormack - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001517/

- Helen Mirren - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000545/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

- Keri Russell - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005392/?ref_=nv_sr_1

- Rebecca Mader - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1242950/?ref_=nv_sr_1

- Carrie Coon - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4689420/?ref_=nv_sr_1

- Maria Doyle Kennedy - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0448204/?ref_=nv_sr_1

For round 2 please message me with your alternate choices to replace James Faulkner as Randyll Tarly.

Point Tally

Rhaenys Balerion - 0

Rock Sniffer - 0

Annara Snow - 0

Raisin Bran - 0

Dolorous Gabe - 0

Jez Bell - 0

These are the current six players, but anyone can jump in at any time by submitting a nominee and an alternate (in case your 1st choice is already taken - and that did happen this round in one case).

Can I vote for my own submission?, because there’s only one I like better than that.

You may not. I should have said that.

And do I have to vote for three or is it okay to just vote for one or two too?

If you don't feel there are three worthy nominees, two or one or none is ok as you see fit.
