    Hi, I am Jade eyes, your hostess. :D I am revamping a game I hosted prior to the move to make it faster and more fun! Hopefully [face_laugh] [face_party]
    Rules:

    1. The host will provide 6 combination prompts to the players in this thread.

    2. Players have 48 hours to PM their answers to the host. Google, Wikipedia, etc. searches allowed [face_laugh]

    3. The host will post all entries in the thread, and players will have 48 hours to vote for the combos they like best.

    4. Whomever gets the most votes wins.

    _____________

    More on voting:

    1. You cannot vote for your own entry.

    2. When you vote for a combo by another player, indicate it by name of player, and which combo(s) of theirs you're voting for.

    E.g., With 5 players on the roster and 6 prompts, there will be 30 prompts to vote from/among. You can vote for as many or as few of a given player's combos. That means you don't have to vote for all the combos submitted by any given player.

    ________

    An example of a combo is:

    If cows in Hawaii held a luau, what would you call it?

    An answer could be: A mumu party [face_laugh] or something even more clever.

    A luau.


    I shall enter this contest. And I will be much deserved victor. This despite not understanding the rules or voting.

    Hi Internets Love your siggy. =D= :cool: Hi Diggy also. LOL On the old boards, I hosted a game called Word Whiz where you had to come up with clever phrases but the objective was to match to gain points. That was too iffy :p I was always drawn to the strange categories where two expressions were joined on Jeopardy or [face_shhh] Wheel of Fortune [face_rofl] where you'd wind up with something like Boy George Foreman Grill 8-} or Piggly Wiggly Wolf's Nursery. I also like the voting element in "Pass the Paragraph" and "Hypathetico", elsewhere in the Games thread. So this game is the fruition. Best thing is there's no right or wrong answer. Silly and cute is the hallmark of a good combination.

    Below you will find the entries by each player and the numbers- 1-6- for each.

    Please PM in your votes in 48 hours.

    Remember, you're voting for the combo(s), which depending on which is easier you can do either of two ways:

    Pick which combo you like best by each player and vote for those.

    (Example: You might like 1, 3, 5, by Player II.)

    Or:

    For each combo prompt -- 1-6 - select the ones across all players you like the best.

    (Example: For prompt 6, story title combination, a vote could be for Player I's.)

    1. Jailhouse Yesterday

    2. Pig on a diving board with plastic wings on it. Jumps, drops instantly into a swimming pool. "Geico. Pigs don't fly, but your savings will.

    3. The Doctor and Amy wanted to take in a 51st century show based on a 21st century classic called Disney's Aladdin. He's absolutely horrified that the TARDIS has landed on Alderaan the day before the Death Star destroyed it. With the TARDIS malfunctioning, can he and Amy escape before Darth Vader and the Empire's instrument of destruction arrives; or will he risk the universe to change the planet's fate?

    4. The $64,000 Wheel of Fortune

    5. It's like going 'round a graveyard while attempting to whistle.
