*** Match Game Wars Gameplay Thread ***

Postby redwill on Tue Nov 19, 2013 2:47 pm

Welcome to Match Game Wars!

General rules are in the sign-up thread, but to recap:

4 players are chosen randomly each Day to be panelists (Charles Nelson Reilly, Brett Somers, Richard Dawson, Betty White)

- game starts with Day 1
- 4 panelists are selected randomly each Day from all the remaining players (possibly including baddies). When few enough players are left, the number of panelists decrease to [number of players - 1]
- panelists are known only to themselves
- 1 random player (of any category except panelists) is the contestant for the Day (this is public) and gives an answer to the question and earns points for matching panelists (panelist answers are given to mod by PM prior to the Day start)
- at the end of the Day, the identity of the Day's panelists and their answers are revealed and points are awarded for matches
- points accumulate and every player can purchase powers using the earned points:

3 pts: protect self (against day or night kill)
4 pts: protect self/another (choose one)
5 pts: kill OR investigate (choose one)

These powers can be used at any time or points can accumulate.

- execs can communicate and kill every Night, starting with the Night after Day 1
- players vote to eliminate a player every Day EXCEPT Day 1

Typical Day goes:

- panelists randomly selected and question PM'd to them (day does not start until all panelist PMs received)
- the Day's contestant is identified and pressed for an answer
- players MAY NOT make suggestions of an answer prior to the answer being given
- after the answer is given, rest of players are welcome to boo, hiss, cheer, applaud, and/or offer better answers
- in the meantime, players vote to eliminate someone in the usual fashion (after Day 1)

Players:

1. MRandall25
2. Willie Kool
3. ExPatriatePen
4. Crankshaft
5. relantel
6. PensHckyFan79
7. shafnutz05
8. PensFanInDC
9. Rylan
10. slappybrown
11. newarenanow
12. canaan
13. Troy Loney

OK, Willie Kool. Our panelists have given their answers to the following question:

The American astronaut said, "I think the Canadians must have gotten to the Moon before us. When we got there, we found a <blank>."


Please give us your answer.

NOTE1: Remember that players MAY NOT make suggestions to the contestant until after he has answered the question!!

NOTE2: On Days after this, players will in the meantime be voting to eliminate other players in an attempt to get the baddies. But not today.

We're waiting, Willie Kool.

Assuming that's not intended to be a suggestion for an answer, I'd say yernotdoinitrong.

Oh, I forgot to mention one other thing:

Standards and Practices from the 1970s are in force here.

So be careful with your answers. No references to genitalia below the waist is allowed!!

Other restrictions apply, but I'll leave that to your discretion.

Please be 1970s in your answers.

This doesn't really apply in this question, but please keep it in mind for future questions.

Thank you.

So, Willie Kool, you answered "hockey puck."

I'd say that's not a bad answer. Let's see what our panel of ding-a-lings said.

Charles Nelson Reilly (Troy Loney) said: "John Glenn" Huh????
Brett Somers (MRandall25) said: "a jar of maple syrup" Hey, that's not a bad answer
Betty White (PensHckyFan79) said: "hockey puck" There we go!
Richard Dawson (relantel) said: "Looney rock" Don't know what that is, but it's not a match

So, Willie Kool, you matched Betty White and have earned 1 point!

Standards and Practices would have allowed that with a wink and smirk.

I almost didn't get Rel's answer.... but I think I do now.

Shouldn't that have been "Loonie Rock"?

Ah! Now that I read that, that was a very clever answer. Sorta lost on us dummies, though.


Anyway, I'm back. Still waiting on all PMs.
