    Hello: This is Jade_eyes. Thanks for the mods' approval to give this idea a trial-out.

    @};-

    :D

    1. Four to six players sign up.

    2. The host will post in the thread a combo which calls for a clever blend in a title or description, like:

    Example 1. "What do you call a Texan thwarted in love?"

    Example 2. "A Winnie the Pooh character in Sherwood Forest."


    3. The players will PM the host within 48 hours the cutest things they can come up with.

    Example 1. "Lone Star Crossed Lover."

    Example 2. "Christopher Robin Hood."


    4. The host will post these in the thread for voting purposes. They will be assigned letters, not associated with the roster order, but with the order received, and the players won't know the player behind the letter until the scores are posted.

    5. The players will PM the host within 48 hours their pick.

    6. Everyone whose combo was picked gains a point, for each vote received.

    Example: Player A gets 3 votes and gains a total of 3 points.

    7. After each round, the host will post the scores/votes and the next round's combo.

    8. This continues through 2 cycles of the sign-up roster, i.e. 4-6 rounds.


    9. Highest scorer at the end wins 24 hours of colors.


    Questions? Please PM.
