    From the very lineage of my rich ancestry, by everything our proud civilization has achieved so far, I bring out my most exquisite salutations to thee: hi!

    Allow me to introduce the Grab Cut & Guess game.  What? Another Grab-the-Image game, you say?  No, you don't, because it's not another - it's (hopefully) the first of its kind!

    Previously we just grabbed and posted the entire screen.  This time, let's try something only a very bored Futurama fan (like me... and you...) would try.  This time, we post only a fragment of the image and have the poor fellow fans try to guess it.  Obviously, there is nothing more delighting than trying to guess just in which episode Zoidberg waved his face tentacle just so, or that particular appealing instance of Amy's breast!  And after all there are only 72 episodes to choose from, so...

    Well, I am still not THAT bored, duh.  Here are some rules with some examples:

  • must post only a fragment of the image, not larger than 1/4 of the original screen;
  • in order to avoid the delightful guessing of the episode in which Fry's foot stood so firmly on that sidewalk (unless it's a very specific sidewalk!) and to maintain the interest, must post only a very specific instance of the fragment, preferably one that appears only once and in one episode.  Finding such one may be a challenging task, as you don't want to be too hard or too easy.


For example, note this sample:

I bet that 101 PEELers out of 100 will guess this one first try.  Obviously too easy.


This sample can be considered a little harder:

This one only 98 PEELers out of 100 might get!


And this one is what I think just perfectly right:



However, this one you could guess till you reboot and still not get it:



Oh, and in honor of Amy's breast (and also an example of not-to-post):



  • it doesn't have to be a face, just a very specific fragment;
  • 24-hour rule in effect;
  • you guessed, you wait for confirmation, or don't (depending on how sure you are), and go or pass your go;

And with all this said, I bestow upon you the first fragment-image of the hopefully epic game!

It's from "Godfellas" where you see the image bender has scraped into his door thing... I think...

*Yup, this game is a cool idea(Y)

Ok, that also fell into the too-easy category. Or some of you watch Futurama too much... or you sneak around in my brain and know my favorite episodes!

Thy go, missB  smile

Can I ask a really really dumb qestion... how do I post images? And do I have to do anything specific to paste just part of an image? If anyone could either tell me or direct me to a thread where this is explained I would apreciate it smile

{IMG}http://url.here.net/image.jpg{/Img} - but replace the { and } with [ and ]

I'm afraid you have to grab the screen like usual then cut the fragment and save it.  I was able to do all this using winxp ms paint.

save the pic you want onto your computer, then go to this site:
PEEL uploader

then click on browse and find your image (and obviously fill out the rest of the nescceary fields). The site will then direct you to your code which you copy and paste onto your post.

but before you can upload it, you have to cut a section of it (for this game, at least). the easiest way is jus to use mspaint, select a portion of the pic, and click cut (or copy) then open a new image and press paste.

Also, there already is a framegrab thread so this just seems silly.

I sometimes do that to see if people are actually masking their image episode codes or not. If i see an episode code or something, i won't guess at all, but i've only played these about 3 times in the last 5 months.

Maybe you were just tricking when you said you were tricking, so is it "My Three Suns"?

No, I wasn't tricking you, when I was tricking you, when I said I was ... *head explodes*

Sorry but it is really not "My three suns"!

Edit: Want a clue?

Bender is not cocking in this episode!

Since I think this is a silly game I morally object to posting a picture. Therfore someone else can have my go and post a picture.
