I_C_Weiner gave me an idea for a game...

I'll give 4 letters and whoever makes the best newspaper/tabloid style headline (ex:ZDFD Zapp Dropped From Doop) out of it in approximately 24 hours wins a point. The first person or smizmar to get 2 points wins and gets to run the game.

Here we go:

Sorry to burst your bubble, but this is exactly like the "A, B, C, D...Acronymic Sentences thread" somewhere on the first page of General Disscussion.

Here's a link:

Okay, I'm officially putting FRY=$$$ under suspicion.

I think the point of this game is to assemble a headline that actually relates to an episode in some way.  For the first acronym, I'd use:

"Large Gizmo Fights Crab" from AOI 1

Well, it looks very similar to the other game. Sorry if I was wrong.

A better name for the "A, B, C, D...Acronymic Sentences thread" might have been "A, S, T...Acronymic Sentences thread".

Also, that i_c_weiner is an ideas man.

Well, I'm not one who usually plays forum games, but I had an idea, if anyone's interested. On another forum, there was a thread that was simply making up false headlines involving characters (in our case, from Futurama). It was pretty fun, and some of the results were hilarious, but it wasn't neccesarily a game, per se. More of a humorous creative outlet. I'm just suggesting this because unless this thread changes dynamically soon, I fear it may be closed due to its resemblence to the acronym game. But I'm sure someone else can probably make a better suggestion than me. Just tryin' to help out. ^_^

No, your idea as good. I like the idea, but a rule system has to be made on it.

  • A PEELer makes a news story.
  • Other PEELers make a newpaper article headline for it.
  • The first PEELer that made the news story selects the headline he/she likes the best.
  • The chosen headline's writer starts the cycle over again.

T-V probally had the rules as that, but there would be a good rules set if that were to be a game.

Good entries, but the first point goes to HomeOwner!

BTW, I didn't see the A,B,C game until mentioned earlier, but this one has more to do with actual episodes or characters. Everybody has their own tastes, but I like the idea of a Futurama related headline. Anyway...

Here's a crazy idea, why not let the winner of the previous round post the new set of letters?  Unless, of course, you think you're better than us.

Yes, I do, but that's besides the point.  tongue I don't think you could have a point system if the players who have points in the current game get to pick the best headline. How about I lower the total to 2 points in order to win. That way it will turn over quicker and more people get to pick the new letters?

The way it was in the quote games was the person who selected the theme would judge the entries and the best one would pick the next theme (ad nauseum).

DrThunder88 wins a point!

After someone gets two points, then we can go to a system where whoever wins picks the next letters if that's what the players want. How about that?

You won the 2nd point! I like the point system, but if you guys want to just let whoever wins pick the next letters, then we'll do that. You're up, HomeOwner!
