"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!

Every day, do one thing that scares you.

How does a caterpillar become a butterfly?

When a male caterpillar become a father, a natural defense mechanism kicks in that causes him to sprout brightly colored plumage. These "butterflies" are just papa caterpillars, luring predatures away from the nest and his little ones.

How does a caterpillar become a butterfly?

It reads great philosophers: "You are what you think you are." or "You are what you eat."

"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

It eats colourful foods (such as those described accurately in The Hungry Caterpillar). It then gets stomach ache, and makes itself a cocoon. When the weather gets cold enough, it throws up (thus giving the true meaning of a technicolour rainbow), and the sick instantly freezes into ultra-thin wings which it sticks on it's back.

Then it leaves the cocoon, looking completely different. This is because as well as being attached to vomit-wings, it is also emaciated and of a skelatal thickness.

This is why they don't last long once transformed - the wings will of course melt away and they plummet to their deaths. This is also why butterflies don't taste very nice.

How does a caterpillar become a butterfly?

It doesn't really become a butterfly. It is merely a plain caterpillar hang gliding.

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.

How does a caterpillar become a butterfly?

It doesn't change at all. Caterpillars are actually highly-advanced species of aliens, similar to intelligent shades of blue. The cocoon and butterfly forms of the caterpillar are actually mental projections. You think that they're there and real, but it's actually all in your mind.

'Nother round, please!

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

Still cringing at vomit wings.
