View Full Version : A NEW game!!!

08-07-2011, 10:59 PM
:cool: Hi Everyone,

Okay the story went well but didnt attract as many of the new or shy players sooooo lets try this one and its easy and fun and you get to know people. Please keep adding to it though if you wish Im curious as to how it turns out.

Its called "Guess something about the person below me" game and it works thusly:

I will start with a statement about the person who will (hopefully) post after me...
The next person will answer with only a True or False ...then they will make a guess about the next person to post after or below them...
For example:

The person below me loves word games.

Lets say Lily H was next
She would type True
and add her next statement ie The person below me eats bananas.

Yes lame examples I agree however I was just demonstrating.

Now, if you dont like this game, dont play. If you are NEW or shy please give it a try.
If you arent sure how to post, ask in the chat box or PM any of the regular players and we would be happy to help.

Stephen? Hope you dont mind???
kk lets start shall we...

The person below me has eaten a worm.

(remember just True or False and then make your next statement right underneath your True or False)
Er...yes I know. We grow old but some of us never grow up.:p

PS: Please dont let this interfere with the reason we come here and that's to play. This is just
a way to get to know each other better and hopefully know some of the many many people
who rarely chat or post.

The person below me is fluent in a language other than English.

08-09-2011, 02:47 PM
German and Polish; some French, Spanish, Greek, Italian, Russian, and Swedish.
No computerese, though. Hence my low scores.

True or false? The person below me also types withe one finger.

08-10-2011, 07:53 AM
False. I use all ten (although the left thumb rarely). I grew up in the olden days when girls in high school, although bound for college, learned to touch-type "just in case." Little did the boys know at the time that one day computers would come along and give those touch-typing girls a big advantage. Well, maybe only a slight one. But they never counted on on-line cryptograms! (Bansais excepted.) This is where using all the digits really pays off. I am, however, very envious of the one-digit typist above me who can speak 8 languages -- a much greater accomplishment!

The person below me has been married more than once.

08-10-2011, 09:54 PM
True. and ick.

The person below (and realizing that I have selected to display the forum from newest to oldest is actually now the person above me..lol)

The person below me has made someone laugh today.

The person below (or above if you are organized like Pootie) has a great- grandchild.

08-11-2011, 09:47 AM

But I have inherited (by marriage) 3 grandchildren, ages 6, 4 and 2 ... plus three others of that generation (2 great step-nephews and one great step-niece?) ... all of whom are visiting right now for 5 days, while several of their parents are on an annual family fishing trip. So, if my scores are anemic this month, let's blame it on both of those generations.

Pajarito ... I think you are brilliant to have told your kids it was their job to amuse you. I'm going to try that on my inherited grandchildren and the others tomorrow.

True or False? The person below (or above, if it's Pootie or someone similarly organized) once got so drunk on gin martinis (with olives) that they could never drink one again.

08-11-2011, 05:24 PM
False, but you have to wonder how she came up with such a specific question. Hm....

The person below me has a great idea for a screenplay.

09-14-2011, 07:48 PM
False... errr True... wellll, maybe. How does one know until its been bounced off other people? Okay, here's the plot line... It's September 11, 2001 and a woman leaves home for work (she works in one of the WTC towers), and her husband leaves for his job (he works somewhere else in NYC). Only the wife doesn't go to work. She has given her employer a legitimate reason for not being there but has actually run off to some hotel to have an affair. The towers are hit, and the husband is watching all of this on CNN from an office television where he works. Before the towers collapse he rushes to the WTC to try and get to his wife. The towers collapse, he's not killed, but is seriously injured, rescued, rushed to a hospital, and has head injuries leaving him in a coma. The wife makes her way home from the hotel (now aware of what has happened at the place she was supposed to be working), and is trying to reach her husband by cell phone to let him know she's okay. A day passes, then 2, and finally after inquiries are made, realizes what has happened to her husband. She comes to realize that everyone she worked with on a daily basis has died, and she begins the process of nursing her husband back to health. She has to have some explanation as to why she wasn't at work, has the guilt to deal with, has the illegitmate lover to deal with... and then there's the blackmailer that nobody counted on....Okay, how'd I do for a screenplay idea?

The person below me loves Mexican food.

09-14-2011, 08:59 PM
True I love Mexican food. And er cheery plot. Interesting.

The person below me thinks that TV got a whole lot better without Oprah and a whole lot worse without Jack Bauer.



09-14-2011, 10:13 PM
True. I have my favorite (what seem to be mini-series) that I tune into when they're in season. They include Men of a Certain Age, Shameless, Sons of Anarchy (in season now), the game show [sort of ] The Marriage Ref, and maybe a few others. Looking back on the previous pages... Widow Maker, yes, I have completed a marathon (though a long time ago). My time was 3:22:28. No longer do any distance running (the loss of one leg since my running days may very well have something to do with that, along with middle-age, etc.).

The person responding next enjoys snorkeling in the Caribbean.

09-15-2011, 04:07 AM
False. Although I'm planning on going to the Caribbean in a couple of years.

First time posting on forum, but have been playing here for awhile.

False. Chocolate is my panacea and drug of choice.

The person below me read The Catcher in the Rye as a teenager.

09-16-2011, 03:28 AM
False. Now that I am older, it seems that if you want to read the work of an inveterately reclusive author, Thomas Pynchon is preferable to JD Salinger.


The person below me has an unusual plant in or around their domicile.
