Ok, private message me your vote for quality poster!!
done'd or somethin'.
And the same for me.
I hadn't read an RP post by you for quite awhile there, Trimaj. Good to see you, mate.
aye, it's been much too long tyi. glad you're still around. i think i've seen you in passing in the RPF a couple of times. sad, time differences.
i'd like to think i've come a ways since then.
My vote is sent, though it was a tough choice.
Everybody did so well this time.
True that, pity it was short!
Yep, Trimaj, I still pass through the RPF all the time. Sadly not as a regular gamer at the moment, but I always remember my roots in that place, mate.
We had GREAT effort and quality this time around on the posts. And so we had votes going every which way. So I went to our hostess princesschattycathy (who hasn't made an appearance) to look through and make the tie breaking vote..
She found it a tough choice as well, but when pressed we agreed on LilyHobbit't portrayal of the murderess Ally Azzure!!
Thank you! This game was definitely lots of fun, even as short as it lasted.
congrats lily. deserved, very well deserved.
Congrats on a game well played, Lily!
Congrats Lily, and very nice colours.
So what theme do we want for the next game? I've been thinking of tentatively giving the right to choose to the last quality poster winner but its not official.. and we had such a good quality from everyone this last time around how about we open it up to everyone for suggestions?
how about a fun house themed one? everyone was stuck in a funhouse with boddy, then the police finally get there to let them out and (lo and behold) there's the body of mister boddy at the entrance? or something along those lines.
I have lots of ideas. I think one fun alternative would be that they're all on a cruise ship, or perhaps they could all be residents of a medieval castle or maybe even one where all the players are inmates at a prison.
Ooohhh I love the medieval castle idea!
I vote for that one.
i'll give that one my vote of confidence as well.
It would be rather cool to ride into the game as a knight on his horse . . .
I'd love to see a Star Wars CLUE in the future, too.
You may very well see one, then.
It is time for another game of clue!!
This week we have a Dark Age Castle theme.
A Castle Murder
Same basic rules as listed on page 1 with NEW WEAPONS! NEW ROOMS!
There can be six players; each representing one of these colors:
Yellow Green Red Blue White Purple
I will play your host; and PrincessChattyCathy will be the hostess.
Signup by adding your name and color-themed character name to the roster below, such as
1. [RED] Some_Player27 - Lady Blood
MURDER AT THE LODGE:
Lord Boddy has been killed. Your characters are all suspects and all want to know what really happened.
OBJECTIVE 1: Find Out Who Killed Lord Boddy, With What Weapon and in What Room.
OBJECTIVE 2: Play your character in an entertaining thematic way that gets you votes from the other players.
Suspects: one of the six characters on the roster corresponding to yellow, green, red, blue, white and purple.
Weapons: Arsenic, Crossbow, Chamber Pot, Battle Axe, The Rope, and a Hunting Rifle.
Rooms: Tea Room, Dungeon, The Wardrobe, Servant's Room, Privy Chamber, Kitchen, Audience Hall, Dining Room, and The Great Hall.
Starting the Game:
Once we have all six player slots filled, I will post an official "START GAME! Post.
Each player will get sent a list of clues. You each know three weapons/rooms/suspects that were NOT involved.
A player's first suggestion/accusation post should introduce their "character" to the group.
Making a Suggestion/Accusation:
Players should post once per day with a suggestion/accusation as to who killed Mr. Boddy; with what weapon and in which room. Only one such suggestion/accusation post is allowed per day per player; a player not making a suggesttion/accusation is a 24 hr period gets a demerit which may be used against him/her in the "quality poster award" portion of the game.
Players may make as many posts as they like in a day, but only one suggestion/accusation per day.
Proving a Suggestion True or False:
In the board game, other players look at their starting clues and the first player to the players left shows one clue if it proves one of the player's accusation as false...
In THIS version of the game, I (or the HOSTESS) will handle that portion for you all at once at the beginning of every morning with a post listing all the accusations and who responded (not with how they responded of course). I will send a WHISPER PM to each to share which information was disproved.
Note that you get only one WHISPER per turn from the first player to your left (next on the roster) to have a clue for you. So that player may have several clues that would help you, but I'm only going to show you one.
The player to accuse the right people, using the right weapon and in the right room wins the DETECTIVE award. I check these in the morning all at once. If two players make the same accusation, the player with the fewest demerits wins. If two players make the same accusation and have the same number of demerits, the one that comes first on the roster wins.
Once that winner has been declared, it will be time to vote for the QUALITY POSTER award. The players will vote for the player they thought posted THE VERY BEST MOST ENTERTAINING AND ENJOYABLE posts of the game by sending me a private message to that effect. In the case of a tie, my assistant will select her very favorite of those in the tie.
Both winners will get colors for 24-hours. NOTE: a player can win both the DETECTIVE and QUALITY POSTER award; they then get colors for 48-hours (maybe even 72 if I can get the mods to agree!)
