I'm a dirty rotten thief. I've been visiting the Port Haven forums the past day or so, and there was a thread idea that just started that I quite liked. Apparently, the Port Haven mods weren't so fond of it, because they locked it up pretty quickly. Luckily for myself, I run my own forum and can just start the thread here. The benefits of swindling Andrew out of EUCantina. Razz

A game where everything's made up and the points don't matter!

I'm the host of this game, and I award the points. Here are the rules:

1. Points are awarded for anything and everything!
e.g. "Points to whoever got that reference!" or "You know what I was talking about, points to you!"
3. Whoever gets the most points at the end of the thread wins! And you get a prize along with a prestigious member title!
4. Point awards must be whole numbers anywhere between 1 and 100.

So, this is a chat thread, but also a contest. Your goal is to post things that make me want to give you points. For example, let's say Reepicheep posts a funny joke about Canada. I might give him 10 points for that. Now, say IR2 feels it prudent to discuss Batman. I might give him 50 points for that. How well will this work? I don't know. But I'll give it more of a chance than those Port Haven mods did.

Any questions?

Depends, does asking questions earn us points? Wink

Only if they're good questions.

And that was a brilliant question. 40 points to Padme.

I ALSO LIKE SMUGGLER BOOKS.

You other players better work harder. My soft spot has been found.

100 points to Nanci for the smuggler book comment. And another 100 for being part of the greatest gathering of the minds in the history of Star Wars fandom that worked tirelessly to create the very idea of the smuggler book.

And 10 points for telling me she likes my thread. Yeah, only 10. No bonus for being a teacher's pet. (Is that not the point of this game? Or is it?)

How exactly will we know when someone has won this here game? Also, is there going to be a prize and is that prize a puppy?

Madam, I do suggest that you readeth the third commandment. And I quoteth:

"3. Whoever gets the most points at the end of the thread wins! And you get a prize along with a prestigious member title! "

So, when this thread ends (at a point in time in which I feel it has run its course), the winner will be crowned champion of winning things.

Whensoever a thread is born, an angel gets its wings. Some think that its when a bell rings as in the classic film "It's a Wonderful Life" but it is actually when we create a good SW thread. In sooth, this will be perhaps one of the most fun threads full of both wit and moronic statements, humor and sadness, life and love, reality and the untouchable. This is surely the work of genius.

"End of the thread". This could take years. And I am deeply disappointed that there will be no puppy.

Who said there will be no puppy? I mentioned a prize, didn't I? Do not yet abandon the great hope of a puppy in your future, Padme. Hold on to it!

I'd rather get a mooka than a puppy.

Puppies are all well fun and good. But, I'd rather have an astromech... or an assassin droid... or both. Yeah, both.
