Who Are You? Game
« on: December 04, 2016, 03:42:52 AM »
Hey everyone, I just thought of an interesting game we could play on here. Have you ever heard of the game "Who am I?" It is a party game where each player writes down a name of a famous person on a notecard, shuffles all of the notecards, and deals them out to each player. Those players then stick their notecard to their foreheads so that they can't see the names on them, and have to guess who they got based on how people interact with them.

I was thinking we could do something similar here. But instead of trying to guess who we are, we have to guess who other people are based on how they act. Naturally, we'd all choose literary characters from our favorite books.

For example, I would start dropping the phrase "Hell's Bells" all the time, while making sarcastic but witty jokes. Someone else would have to guess that I am Harry Dresden.

Because of how vast the literary world is, I would suggest that we come up with a list of available characters to choose from. Ideally there would be quite a few characters for people to choose from, and they would have their book or series listed next to them in case people wanted to "research" (We all know I just want to learn about good book series).

The nice thing about this game is that we could keep it going for as long as we wanted, and people could drop in and out as they wished. If someone guesses who you are, just pick a different character and keep going. If you see this post 6 months from now, just pull a name from the list and join the fun.

Anyone interested? If so, we should probably take a week or so to come up with a list of characters (don't worry, we can continually expand it), then we could dive right in.

Is Ryan being tricksie? Yes, precious, of course he is. But would Ryan be tasty? Like a nice raw fish, maybe. Yesssss.

But he wants to play a game, does he? If we wins, we gets to eat him. Yess. If we loses, we shows him the way out of the........ Maze. http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/(june-2013)-mazes/(jun-2013)-mazes-discussions-thread/msg160829/#msg160829
