Acrophobia 34A&B: COMPLETE

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I had a good idea when I thought I could use additional prepositions and conjunctions, but with these rules, I have no idea how to make anything work. :(

Titles don’t often have too many prepositions in the first place, do they? Try taking inspiration from media headlines or business jargon, both tends to discriminate prepositions and proper grammar.

Also consider breaking up the letters into title and tag-line/sub-title.

 

Edited to add:

Let's make the deadline Friday as Halloween can be busy for many. Let's have all entries in by midday UK time Friday. I can post the entries then and give out the second round assignment.

So please try to get your entries completed and in before Friday 2nd November

Most rounds don’t last two weeks though, right? It’s usually much speedier, right? And it doesn’t take more than a couple days, right?

Right! Kinda! Yeah this has only been this long to let people see the game and enter from the start. A round might last between 3 and 5 days depending on when it suits me to come on and do the count and post the next round. I will stick rigidly to the deadline I set but I will accept entries after the deadline at the cost of the point you get for submitting an entry, if that makes sense.

Around 12 hours till the deadline. Still hoping for at least two more entries to come in as we only have five.

Shall I tag a few of our ex-players in case it tempts them last minute?

Happy Friday Acrophobes

Sorry I'm a little later than I said, I've had a situation to sort out today.

The first round will follow this post. I've made some executive decisions for those who didn't specify. Let me know within 10 minutes if you have a preference.

Thankfully, Cersei has deemed 8 entries acceptable. Just.

PART A

ROUND TWO: JON CONNINGTON

Jon Connington comes out, alive and very much kicking, from his exile. This is a man with a lot to say and now he is writing a book to tell it all. Such a story needs a great title.

What can you come up with that he might choose?

 

Create your title from one of the following acronyms:

O A D

T F T F

A S G D C

 

The deadline is Tuesday November 6th at 11:30pm (GMT) time

I'm back. Sort of. First time I have looked at the site since dropping out. I believe something in the ether told me Gabe was hosting a game. 

I can't apologise enough for abandoning last game. Thanks for your concern but I don't have a good reason  (eg hospitalisation; eviction; flood), life and its deadlines just overcame me.

Some votes:

8. "Cersei" - Devastatingly Fearless  

5. Life as Shame Dame

7. Cersei's Dynasty Founded
