    Okay, I'll give it until tomorrow afternoon/evening EST and then we'll start. If by chance more than 6 people want to play, that's totally fine.

    Standings and answers! The OP says one point per correct answer, so I'm not giving double for double answers.

    Autocorrect did "attacking."
    I was trying to say action.


    Oh, well.

    Wow, it is still anyone's game! We could have multiple winners ... Remember, no adjectives (kitchen sink wouldn't count for K things in a house; it's a sink).

    The next letter is M. You have 48 hours!

    Shouldn't "dragon" be red and not count for me?
    And if you don't count Given's Deck Chair, how could you count armchair or such. It's a type of chair....

    Armchair is a noun, so the adjective rule she was talking about does not apply, in this case it was not counted because everyone and their mother put down armchair, so it was eliminated

    I'm aware of that.
    I meant that "couldn't deck chair be considered a compound noun of some sort?"

    I was half asleep and didn't have my glasses on.

    Name that character? List traits of a famous character in fiction (be it TV/Movies/books/etc.,) and have contestants try to guess who it is?

    Hmmmm. Sounds like 20 Questions. :) I'd love Man Bites Dog or Beyond Balderdash [face_batting] especially for the former, the SW version. [face_laugh]

    Juliet--as Jade said, that sounds a lot like 20 Questions. But I'd love to get more games going if you have any suggestions ... [face_batting]


    As I"m a bit short on time ATM, we're going to play another round of Rare Entries. Remember, you don't need to sign up! Just play :D


    This game has no sign-up necessary.

    I will post a set of six categories, each of which has a small pool of correct answers (like "One of the Seven Deadly Sins" or "Character who was in all three films of the OT"), and anyone who wishes to take part PMs a list with one answer for each. Once the submission period (72 hours) is up, I will then assign points for each correct response based on how many people answered it; one point if only one gave it, two if two did, and so on. An incorrect answer is worth one point more than the highest-scoring correct answer.

    For example, to use the Deadly Sins question, if only one guy said sloth, he'd get one point, but the four people who picked lust would each get four. Assuming that was the most popular answer, then the person who answered jaywalking would get five points. Once all the answers have been given scores, a person's six numbers are then multiplied to come up with a final score, with the lowest-scoring person being the winner. Someone with all unique answers would score a perfect one point. The categories will be on varied subjects, and research is allowed and encouraged.

    Remember, the point is to score less than everyone else by having the most unique answers.
