P&S Test Lab
 

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

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&S guidelines apply, unless otherwise stated by the host. The only exception to this is that the person who solves the game is not obliged to set the next puzzle, although they have first refusal to do so. If you choose not to post the next puzzle, please say so. If no new puzzle is posted within 2 days, the turn is automatically open to anyone.
3. As a host, clearly indicate wheter your puzzle is just a one-timer or an idea for a new P&S game. Explain in detail how the game should be played like is done in the header of all other games. If it makes it simpler, put the rules in one post, and the puzzle in the next. If you repeat the previous game, also repost the rules completely.
4. Depending on the popularity of an idea for a new game, it may become a regular game in the Post and Solve folder. While playing, host and players can discuss the new game and possible changes of the header in POST-n-SOLVE COMMENTS. The next host(s) could choose to make a similar puzzle 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&S 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. ;o)

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

What was going through the minds of all of Chuck Norris' victims before they died? His shoe.

Something about the 20th century?

Is man in the phrase? Yes, in the plural form

Actually, this was said in 1905, on the occasion of the authors, 75th birthday.

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

Getting out the duster and sweeping the floor... leaving a nice vase of flowers on the side board.
