    TSR Chinese Whispers (SIGN-UPS CLOSED)





    With Chinese New Year approaching this weekend, it's the perfect time to revive a Forum Games classic! A simple take on the classic game you may have played when you were younger, but adapted for a text-based forum.


    How it works

    • If you want to take part, sign up below! Once we have a reasonable number (20-26 ideally) the game will begin.
    • I will then sort the usernames in random order, and PM the first person with a statement, the first Chinese whisper. This person will have to draw what I've described in Paint, upload it and PM it to me.
    • I will then PM the next person in the list and show them this picture. They have to PM me back with their own description of it, being as brief or descriptive as they like.
    • I will then PM the third person, and show them this description. They draw, upload it and send it to me. This cycle repeats until we've gone through everyone. It's all done is secret to keep up the suspense and prevent any bias. :yes:
    • At the end of it, I'll show off the entire whisper chain from start to finish, and hopefully we'll have come up with something both hilarious and embarrassing for all involved, whether it's because you're a terrible artist (like me), or you can't describe very well (like me).
    • I'll remind everyone in their PM exactly what they're doing (drawing or describing), but if you have any questions please do ask in the thread.


    Key rules

    • Don't share what you've described or drawn in this thread, or anywhere else. Not only could it ruin the surprise, but it could impact on what people further down the chain write or draw.
    • In pictures, please don't use words or numbers to try and hint at what's been drawn.
    • Pictures must be 500x400 in size (width x height).
    • Please don't lie or intentionally try and ruin the flow in descriptions or images, e.g. by adding things that blatantly aren't there. As everything is being PMed to me, I'll be the judge of that, and may ask you to re-do your submission if I think you're being silly.
    • Take too long to reply to my PMs, and I may have to skip you to keep things going smoothly. :sadnod:


    I'll let people know in their PM exactly what they're doing (drawing or describing), but if you have any questions please do ask in the thread.

    All added~

    With the drawings, as soon as possible, no longer than a day or two since we could be here for a while otherwise. Though if someone lets me know they're going to be away/busy, I'll give them more time or move them further up the queue. :yes:

    Okay - I'd like to take part for sure, but I won't be able to do so until tomorrow if that's okay?

    That's fine! I don't know how likely it is that it'll kick off today (the number of sign-ups are starting to pick up though, thankfully!), but if it does I'll tweak it so that you're not at the start of the queue.
