    Hello to all gamers!

    Here at TSR we have been brainstorming some new forum games! I have listed some ideas below so if you like any of them please start them up

    Also, if you have any ideas that you want to try out or don't want to start yourself just post them in this thread!

    Ideas
    Every 100th post is the winner. (so whoever gets post 100, post 200 etc)
    A bit like who posts last is the winner – but with more winners!

    A-Z games
    You base them around a certain thing - a football team, film, singer, band, game etc etc and the first person names one that starts with A. The next person has to name one that starts with B and so on.

    Film connections
    OP starts off by naming a movie actor/actress, then the next person replies with another actor/actress that appeared in a movie with the previous person. It helps if you also put the movie they appeared in.

    Change a Letter and Make a New Word Thread
    Aim of the game is to change one or two letters of a word and get a completely different word. You may add or take away up to two letters a word instead of changing a letter, but this may only be done once every five posts. You may not post twice in a row. A new word may begin after the previous word has had 20 variations. We can change the rules for this one to make it simpler.

    The Music Thread
    These are the rules for this one. All you have to do is look at the last post, take a word from it to make your artist/band and song title (can't be the same artist/band as previous post). Put the word you used in capitals so the next poster can use another word unless it is impossible. No use of the words AND or THE.

    3 word game!!
    Say anything you want but you can only post three words in each post and you can’t post two posts in a row.

    If you view this thread you must reply

    Here's a chance for everyone who reads this to say something..just say anything!

    This thing or that thing?
    Set an X or Y question. First person to give their preference then sets their own X or Y question.
    e.g. Black Books or IT Crowd?

    Any takers?

    Hi Queen Cersei

    Apologies for the late reply, I have only just noticed this post! I'll take a look over the next few days and see if anyone else wants these games creating. I'm sure some of these would go down well

    As for the Music Thread - I think we already have one, either in the forum games section or the Music section.

    The thread-starter begins a story and the next person carries it on and then the next, such as "Once upon a time there was a..."
    Person replies: "kangroo that ate a huge..."
    Then the next person replies, "man that had hair growing out of his..."
    :laugh: I dunno if that'll work. You may get one person posting a lot of the story.
    Your ideas are good though xx

    That'd work, so long as there was a rule that said "no consecutive posts" or some sort; i.e. a limit being placed on the amount of times a person can post in a specified time.

    Oh yeah, that too, but I originally meant someone posting paragraphs of the story rather than a sentence or two. But, like you said, just type a rule saying minimum of a few lines or something

    Perhaps find the dumbest thread posted in the hour would be a better game.

    Maybe it would spark a competition to see who could find the dumbest thread?

    The Bear - please don't bump a thread like that if the latest reply has only been within a few minutes - unless it adds something to the discussion, or if it is a game which allows multiple postings (e.g. CTAM).

    Hmmm.... Maybe, which would then mean the threads (hopefully) get less dumb
