It's nice to see so many questions asked here. That's precisely what I had in mind: a discussion about the pros and cons.

I was thinking of a competition between the lounges that really takes place in the lounges. My idea was to ask the lounge mods to be our referees as they have access to all the lounges.

Having a competition in Misc would surely work just as well, but I am aiming at reviving the lounges which atm hover between hibernation and coma.

As for the games, there are quite a lot of possibilities. All kinds of word games should work nicely: word association, trek-me-this, the alphabet game, 2-word-story or even hangman (but for that we'd have to have one or two posters per lounge who know the solutions and post the right and wrong guesses. It'd be too much work for the Mods to do that themselves in half a dozen lounges simultaneousely. We'd have to make sure the "repliers" in each lounge are trustworthy and won't leak out the solutions to their peers).

I'm sure you can think of a lot of other things we could play.


*steps aside from the catapult and pulls the trigger*
I trust you like a bowl of whipped cream with those cupcakes, teacake ?

they have plenty of work as it is, I'd try to make it without stretching the board resources further.

The event itself would have to take place in a public place (like Misc.) for all the board to see and comment and cheer the winners and booh the losers -but all the associated work in the lounge-teams can be done in secret in the lounges; I suppose each lounge that takes part assembles a team and appoint a spokesperson who in a official capacity can carry their answers to the game-thread in Misc.

As for the games, there are quite a lot of possibilities. All kinds of word games should work nicely: word association, trek-me-this, the alphabet game, 2-word-story or even hangman (but for that we'd have to have one or two posters per lounge who know the solutions and post the right and wrong guesses.

We'd have to make sure the "repliers" in each lounge are trustworthy and won't leak out the solutions to their peers).

I'm sure you can think of a lot of other things we could play.
A typical thing to see would be a board-trivia quiz made by a long-time-member or group of members (as in Admirals?) If you could get anyone to make up some questions for it. This should generate some talk in the lounges on where to find the answers -and- it should help those in the lowest of lounges learn a bit about the board, it's people and how it functions.

Other things that can be played are games and quizzes that give you a link to your results, a link that can be posted on behalf of your team (this way you don't need a busload of referees only team-members discussing which result their spokesperson should should carry to the thread in Misc.

Re: Lounge Olympics

I read the title about Lounge Olympics, and my first thought was "What's wrong with Bedroom Olympics?"

Re: Lounge Olympics

I've tried being the hot poolboy in my lounge but it didn't work.

Re: Lounge Olympics

^ Absolutely there should be.

Also, my idea for a puzzle to be solved is this: there are 30 characters that have to be solved, and where they sit. I would give clues on which characters are where and whom. Basically, I've broken the 30 characters into 3 groups of 10 (Star Trek, Science Fiction TV and Movies)

Re: Lounge Olympics

How about a writing contest? A challenge is posted, like a theme for a story or a topic for an essay. The lounges are given a couple of weeks to brainstorm and work together to produce their submissions, then we post and vote.
