It's not Barbados Slim and it's not Benjamin Franklin.

1) This character has eyebrows.
2) This character is bald.
3) This character has something in common with Fry.
4) This character appears in season 3.

I think it's Curly Joe. Introduced in S03's Time Keeps On Slippin', he fits the bill.

1) This character has eyebrows. Check.
2) This character is bald. Check
3) This character has something in common with Fry. Fry is an honorary Globetrotter, and both are easily amused.
4) This character appears in season 3. Check.


I am thoroughly prepared to be humiliatingly wrong, but enjoyed being the guesser, rather than the one to set the guess.

Helper?

1) This character has eyebrows. Check.
2) This character is bald. Well, he's a robot, so, yeah.
3) This character has something in common with Fry. Has technically died and then come back. (Alternatively, "being let go from Planet Express" could also count for this one)
4) This character appears in season 3. Introduced in Godfellas.

5) Is likely not from the 30th or 31st century

Well that clue helped, I'm guessing that it's Defrostee Joe?

1) Has eyebrows.
2) Is bald.
3) Was in a cryogenic tube like Fry.
4) Appears in Future Stock.
5) Is from the time when giant carrots ruled the Earth, but now they don't. It takes some getting used to.

I like this game! Carry on!

Not entirely sure how turns go, but I'll put in my problem for you all to solve:

1) Has something in common with Bender
2) arguably important or prominent
2) Has had at least 3 appearances

The title of the thread advises you to read the first post in the thread before you play. The first post outlines exactly how the game is meant to be played. Congratulations on being entirely incapable of following simple, reasonable, clearly-outlined instructions (and the depressing thing is that you're not the first person to demonstrate that they're incapable of doing so).

Appeared in Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love.
Obviously female.
Died after the mating ritual.

I'm going to guess it's Yancy's wife. She appeared in The Luck of the Fryrish, and I don't think she's been seen since. She's female, and can safely assumed to have been dead for quite a while.

Yeah, it's a long shot. But I quite like making wild guesses because when one touches down perfectly, it makes the rest of them seem worth it.

None of those. Let me add a couple more clues:

1) Appears only once.
2) Is female.
3) Is dead.
4) Is human.
5) Is not related to any other characters.

Some more guesses and I'll give some much better clues.

I'm going to guess Nixon's campaign manager.

-She appears only in "A Head in the Polls"
-She's female
-She became goo under the weight of Nixon's colossal foot.
-Isn't related to anyone (as far as we know)

Nope. Here's two more hints.

1) Appears only once.
2) Is female.
3) Is dead.
4) Is human.
5) Is not related to any other characters.
6) Dies on screen.
7) Doesn't speak directly to any of the main characters, but mentions one by name.

Yes, that's correct, but you just broke two rules, guessing twice in one round, and not listing your reasons. So I go again!

1) This character appears in one episode.
2) This character is technically human.
3) This character is voiced by a male actor.

I'm guessing Boobs Vanderbilt. I don't know why, the name just sort of came to me.

She only appeared once, appeared to be human at least, is not related to any other characters that we are aware of, died on screen, and mentioned Bender's name once.

That's alright. I have this nagging feeling I didn't come up with the answer on my own.

Nah, it's probably nothing.

Ya, the rules don't really provide for this situation. I'm not sure if you're allowed to take the guess and win like that since you followed the rules, or if MeatablePie's correct answer but lack of rule-following means that nobody can win and I have to go again.

In any case, I did, and here are the clues again:

1) This character appears in one episode.
2) This character is technically human.
3) This character is voiced by a male actor.

I've amended the rules to account for the fact that this place is crawling with people who'd be outsmarted by an unplugged toaster. In the event that a winning guess breaks the rules, the person who set the character for that round picks another, and the round begins anew.

An optional extra is to thoroughly chastise the person who broke the rules.

Stop taking multiple guesses, MeatablePie. Why is that so hard to get across?

I suggest a rule where MeatablePie can't win under any circumstances.

I've added this to the rules in the first post, because it's an excellent suggestion.

Fine, I'll only make an answer once.

But honestly, I find this a stupid rule.
In "Guess the Episode" which is the same kind of game as this is, doesn't have this rule.

If you want a better chance of winning, wait until there are enough clues that you're more certain of your guess.

It's not Doug or Free Waterfall Sr.

1) This character appears in one episode.
2) This character is technically human.
3) This character is voiced by a male actor.
4) This character has something in common with Frida Waterfall.
5) It is somewhat implied that this character is around but offscreen in other episodes.

You're not really booted. Unreal was joking and Tnuk just took it the extra step to antagonize you. I don't know about anyone else, but if you follow the rules and guess correctly, I'm giving the turn to you.

That said, you have a really bitter attitude about a simple game.

The rule allowing only one guess per round is actually quite sensible, and I am surprised that it has never been implemented in a thread before now.

Leonardo da Vinci?

1. "The Duh-Vinci Code"
2. He is officially human, but was born on Planet Vinci
3. Maurice LaMarche
4. Like Frida Waterfall, he is dead.
5. He is mentioned, but does not physically appear, in "Bender's Big Score".

I feel that it might be reasonable to allow people to make a new guess every time new clues are added, as this would still prevent them flooding the game with guesses while allowing them to make more than one post every day or two.

I'm not the guy who created and wrote the rules for this game, so the above is just a thought about how it could be done, nothing more.

And yeah MP, sometimes we make jokes here. I'm sure if you adhere to the rules from here on out your participation will be welcome.
