"If you put an infinite number of apes in front of an infinite number of computers, you get a pretty good idea of what internet chat rooms can be like" - Stevie B

Set up: This is a little different from the normal Post and Go games. This area is used for trying new game ideas, or for playing one-time games that don't really fit into any of the current ones.

Here are a few guidelines for how to use this area:
1. Only one game to be played at a time. If you have a fun idea, be patient, you'll get your turn.
2. For any game, all the usual P&G guidelines apply (see the P&G FAQ), unless otherwise stated by the host. The only exception to this is that the person who (in the case of a voting game) wins the the game is not obliged to set the next game, although they have first refusal to do so. If you choose not to post the next game, please say so. If no new game is posted within 2 days, the turn is automatically open to anyone.
3. As a host, clearly indicate whether your game is just a one-timer or an idea for a new P&G game. Explain in detail how the game should be played like is done in the header of all other games. If you repeat the previous game, also repost the rules in full.
4. Depending on the popularity of an idea for a new game, it may become a regular game in the Post and Go folder. While playing, host and players can discuss the new game and possible changes of the header in POST-n-GO COMMENTS. The next host(s) could choose to make a similar game that takes the suggestions into account. After a few "try-outs" this can result in a good final header for a new game.
5. Be aware that the intention is not to increase the current number of P&G games. Adding a new game will most likely mean archiving a less popular one. Bringing up new ideas can be fun, but it never hurts to be selective.
6. With Voting games, it might not always be possible to follow the schedule used with the rest of the voting games. With this in mind, it is recommended that the game schedule is controlled by the current host. The host must state when voting will be called, and when the voting will be tallied. Please note: If the game is falling behind the schedule set by the host, then anyone can jump in and move it along.

If you're stuck for ideas why not have a look at the list of games in The Games Pool? If you've played or created a game here and you've enjoyed it, why not add it to The Games Pool?

If you have questions regarding hosting and posting, check out the FAQ. Have fun!

You're back at work after a trip to the dentist, you're face is numb, and you have a big piece of gauze in your mouth. A co-worker stops by and asks, "oh, did you go to the dentist?"

Nah, some people chew tobacco, I have a fetish for gauze.

Since this game is being added to Quips, I'm going to start the voting round now to keep it on the same schedule. The winner will then be free to come up with a new idea or pass it on to someone else. So...

let the voting begin!

We all lose our minds occasionally. Mine wandered off last month, and still hasn't come back.

Oh - DeeGee, Joy, and Aggie are all so good - but I have to pick just one so oooooooohhhhhhhhh this is so hard Joy!

Wondering and Aggie tied with two votes each, but since wondering got her votes first, she's up!!!

I think this is being added to quips - so time for something new ... I'll be back in a bit...

You're right, I meant to add that in my post.

Punorama!

In this game (inspired by the game by the BBC game of the same name), I will give you a short news story. Your task? To write a punny headline that a newspaper editor would use if they ran the story.

Today's topic:

A German scientist has been testing an "anti-stupidity" pill with encouraging results on mice and fruit flies, Bild newspaper reported on Saturday.


DeeGee - 11:31am Aug 7, 2006 PST(#180 of 1085)
A birth certificate shows you were born. A death certificate shows you have died. A photo album shows you have lived.

No flies on fruit, only the mice where they've been.

Voit sprung mouse, flies technique.
