"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 can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

Anyone have something else they want to put up in here?

Or is this whole idea dead?

An error occurred while processing this directive.

I personally think it's dead, myself.

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

Me to...

I like the idea. I just don't have the time.

Well...that didn't work...

Caer, what are your thoughts on this?

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.

This idea, unfortunately, seems to have flatlined (and thanks, Ruby, for that graphic image). Like The List, which has had no interest in it for months.

The problem is that if we move both of these to the vault for long-term storage, will they ever come back? That's my concern.

I recommend that we move The List to the vault and leave this here. For now.


Raeboy - 03:46pm May 5, 2011 PST(#1083 of 1085)

Old and New is good to have so that we CAN bring back the list and other oldies but goodies.

This is one of those frustrating ones where you try and try...and maybe get one other person posting when you do try...probably not enough subbed to this one or some have unsubbed...

Hmmm...
