Okay, I am going to *tentatively* start a new game later this afternoon.
Here are some suggestions, directly from some of you.
Maybe yes or no questions without specifics such as the year, the actors names, plot.
My vote here is that the game involves Ron giving out a clue and then people can guess but I think the one guess only thing works because with the group posting here these are going to get sorted out pretty quickly. If you only have one guess you will need to use it wisely.
Perhaps to prolong the game each member could ask one question and have one guess. Then Mr Epstein posts only at the end of each day with the winner (the first to guess correctly) or indicates who is warm etc and provide a further clue.
If I missed anyone's suggestion. Apologies. I just skimmed the thread. Feel free to contribute ideas.
Here is what I am proposing based on these suggestions:
[color=#b22222;]1. No questions on actors, year, plot, genre. I will attempt to give out the most [/color]
[color=#b22222;]obscure clue possible. Don't know if I can be that clever, but I will try. If anyone[/color]
[color=#b22222;]here thinks they can be an expert in obscurity, I might be willing to take on a volunteer[/color]
[color=#b22222;]to help me with this contest. The title(s) will be revealed in any event so I don't mind[/color]
[color=#b22222;]sharing with someone that wants to help.[/color]
[color=#b22222;]2. One question and one guess per member each day.[/color]
[color=#b22222;]3. We can either allow guesses to be public or members can PM me and I can [/color]
[color=#b22222;]announce those who guessed it correctly (without revealing answer), and thus, [/color]
[color=#b22222;]keeping the contest going for everyone else. I am just not certain I want to deal[/color]
[color=#b22222;]with all the private messages....but I am willing to try the idea.[/color]
I will give you guys a few hours to look over the proposal and let me know what
I may start the contest by 12 noon EST today. Worst case would be Sunday, as
I can monitor the thread more closely.
