Hall of Games / Boardo!
« on: June 12, 2015, 03:03:18 pm »
Based on a round from the BBC Radio 4 panel game "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue", let's see how this plays out in a forum...

Imagine the ultimate board game, which combines elements of every single board game in existence (and in several cases, tropes from quiz shows). The basic idea of Boardo! is to play this (fictitious) game - maintaining a veneer that it's a real game, but in reality making it up as you go along (e.g. move 13 spaces [nobody said anything about using multiple die, or even using die from tabletop RPGs], fall down a snake, find a Trivial Pursuit question and ask to go 50:50). As we're doing a forum variant, we'll call it "Ad-hoc Boardo!", whereby players can drop in and drop out as the game progresses, or even venture into adjacent rooms playing even more incomprehensible games (e.g. Mornington Crescent, which to the uninitated can sound like shouting out London Underground stations at random - but in reality there's an encylopedic-sized book of rules [<--blatant lies]).

So to start, I'll pick up two die and throw an 11 (phew! Avoided the penalty for double sixes!)...
Oh well, at least that square's empty...

Flipside Discussion / Chapter 42: Discussion

( Looks around, sees no-one's created the Chapter 42 thread, decides to be a devil and create it himself :D )

As I thought, we're back to Bern and Polly in custody in the Colosseum at Marvallo...

...and Berns got a visitor, fresh from her own ordeal in Lehm's Dark Cell...

This is going to be an interesting reunion :)

Hall of Games / The Alphabet Game
« on: February 03, 2014, 03:14:49 pm »
Something a little different to previous games here, but something that's worked well on a few other fora I've participated in.

The concept's simple enough: work our way through the alphabet, naming characters / places / weapons / concepts etc. within the Flipside Universe. I'll kick off with A, the next poster finds something starting with B, the following poster C etc. If we manage to get to Z, we'll wrap around - at which point, if I remember, I'll put a summary of the answers to date at the bottom of this post so we don't repeat ourselves.

Obviously, some letters will be harder than others, so if a reasonable period of time (about a day?) transpires without anyone posting the next letter and you can't think of a word starting with it, you can cheat - either by using a word where it's the second letter (e.g. eXperiment) or skipping it.

So to get you started:

A is for Ashley (Former Assassin, Rogue Warrior according to her Bio page. Book 0 character?)
