Argh! I thought you might have one
Wow. Closer than I thought.
Congrats, Jturtle! You've got 24 hours of colors
All right, now moving on to a quick game, one of my favorites, before we start a brand-new one!
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 (48 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.

We'll be starting a new game tomorrow. In the meantime, a question, since this game has barely gotten participants the past two rounds: Do you just not notice it, or do you not like it?
Bit of both; I didn't notice this game was even up until late yesterday, and I'm only interested in a couple of games running in here.
Play battle royale! Pretty please?
Edit: Also, I just missed the sign ups or I would have played. Sorry.
Since it's such a quick game, I would extend the time for people to play, especially when it falls on a weekend. I nearly missed it.
We're actually trying a new game next
And that's a good idea; I wasn't even thinking "weekend." I'll start the new game, and you are all still fine to comment on Rare Entries in the games discussion thread.
Next up is a new game - Mad Libs, courtesy of Lexi.
A bit similar to Apples to Apples, so we're going to see how it goes.
I'm going to limit this to 6 players.
I'm up for it!
Mwahaha fun time!
Okay, you guys have 24 hours to PM the following to me except Gunny, who is the judge this round.
