    Is there any interest for a new Beyond Balderdash game? Thanks to the first game I think I will adjust the scoring somewhat but I'd like to see if there's any interest for another game. Post here by 10/16 6:00 AM EST.

    ...Old lady's friend says, "Oh really, I thought he was constipated!"...

    It's an awesome game created by a guy who knows his sigs.

    But it looks like he's going to have to change the color of at least part of his sig.:(

    Okay, here's how to play:

    Roughly every week, I give one of the following categories and you have to PM me with what you think the answer is:

    Word: the definition
    Name: why this person is notable
    Acronym: what it stands for
    Movie: a short synopsis of the plot
    Date: what happened on this date

    THESE GUESSES DO NOT HAVE TO BE CORRECT! It's just what you can think of off the top of your head.

    Then I post an Answer List from all the guesses (with the correct one in there) and you PM me again telling me your final answer from this List.

    There will also be a "Dasher" associated with each question who chooses the category for the next question.

    Scoring:

    You get 1 pt for giving me an initial guess.

    If you don't give me an initial guess for the Answer List, you are still eligible to give a final answer. However, you score less:

    1 pt for choosing the correct answer from the List

    If you DO give me an initial guess, you get 2 pts for choosing the correct answer from the List.

    A player also gets 1 pt if someone else chooses his guess from the List

    If you're the Dasher and NO ONE chooses the correct answer from the List, you get 3 pts if you gave me an initial guess, 2 pts if not.

    You get 3 pts for giving me the correct answer right off the bat (before the List comes out).

    Probably an example is in order:

    3 Players A B C

    Word is BEZOAR

    A guesses "spicy food"
    B guesses "curse word"
    C guesses substance in stomach" (correct answer)

    Everyone gets 1 pt for giving a guess. C gets 3 additional points for choosing the answer right off the bat.

    So the answer list is:

    1. spicy food
    2. Curse word
    3. substance in stomach

    A chooses 3, B chooses 1.

    A gets 2 pts for choosing the correct answer, plus 1 pt because B chose his guess.

    Total scoring:

    A = 4
    B = 1
    C = 4

    Got it? :)

    Really, don't worry about the scoring too much. Just give me a guess for the List and then a final answer.

    I'll play.

    Everyone: GIVE AN ANSWER! I'm sick of having my answer being the only one up there.
  14. Namielus Phrexian Plaguelord

    I don't get your game, but why not? Ok i'm in.

    Apollo: LOL

    Namielus: Don't worry about the rules. Basically, give a guess when the question comes out and then pick from the List when it comes out. That's all you have to worry about.

    Okay, we're gonna start Monday morning.

    Darsh: PM me with a category you want to start off with (word, name, acronym, movie, or date).

    Forgot a slight rule (didn't know if it was obvious) but you do NOT get a point for choosing your own answer from the List.
