"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.

Rules for this game (excerpted from C. Wang's orignal post 4/19/06 in the P&S Test Lab)

[This is progress] game was suggested by The Wanderer, let's give it a try! This will work as a voting P&G. I'm going to start it now and call for votes this Saturday, so the game can be a little fast-paced at first.

Title: White Lies

You know how you're not suppose to ever lie? Well you can here! You start of with a subject and everybody makes a lie about it. Please use a subject that's broad. The person with the best lie wins. Please vote in white. How you vote is up to you. You can choose the funniest or the weirdest. Don't vote for yourself please. After the composing round is over, players vote for the best lie. The winner posts the next topic.

Example

Subject- pizza
Lie- Pizza is made out of clay.

Please, oh please! Lie to me about how I look!

You have a dimple on the tip of your nose. (try and see it without a mirror;)

You are who you are. Nothing in the universe can change that. Remember, nothing and no one is perfect.

Please, oh please! Lie to me about how I look!

Everyday you will grow fatter and uglier until you explode into a million pieces. Everyday on your face, a zit will grow.

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