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!

I think animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

What was the Terracotta army in China reallyt built for?

To provide material for Terracotta planters that were used for royal flowers, that were presented at high affairs of the country to visitors from other countries.

They weren't actually built by the Chinese. They're aliens from another galaxy that couldn't adapt to our atmosphere.

Every day, do one thing that scares you.

Company. Somebody was really lonely, and they didn't have Chia Pets back then.

The army is a fake. Centuries ago, after a particularly hot summer, the clay soil baked and went solid.

The archeological team that "discovered" them was actually a team of sculptors who removed strategic bits of clay leaving an army behind. Just as well Damien Hurst wasn't in the team or they might have found an army of half cows

There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly why the Universe is here, it will instantly vanish and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory stating that this has already occurrred.

What was the Terracotta army in China really built for?

It was an ancient target gallery storage unit. Whenever someone in charge got mad at someone else, he ordered a statue brought to him so he could destroy it. The interchangeable heads were used to make sure that the appropriate head was on the torso of the statue to be destroyed. Bonus points were given if the body could be reused after the shooter had vented his spleen.

They were used as "extras" in an ancient production called Military School Musical

Because the Terracotta air force hadn't been invented yet. (hic)

A birth certificate shows you were born. A death certificate shows you have died. A photo album shows you have lived.

LMAO!!
