Yerfdog Brilliant Halloween Enjoyment!

Around a week from now, on Sunday October 17, I'll be hosting various chat games. With YB prizes! Also, we'll be on the stakeout for ponies, as well. But that's secondary, since you can hunt those any time. Anyway, it will start at 12 PM The time I'll be using is (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada), and the more people that are there, the better. If it's really successful, I might do it again.

However, there is a problem. Due to insufficient funds, I haven't hosted chat games in a long time. (They're just not the same without actual prizes) It's been so long, that I've forgotten almost all the chat games I once knew! So, in the spirit of the Halloween season I'm having a contest of sorts. If you can think of a really good chat game that would be fun to play, post it here. The more detailed, the better. I'll award you anywhere from 1-5 Yerbucks, depending how much I like it.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Current Games Recollected:

Chat Mafia
PWNZOR
Monster Trivia
Snowball Fight
T.A.G.
Perilous Paths

chat mafia: mafia but in chat!!
PWNZR: umm the four card character thingie (although we'd need to dig up thi link)
monster madness: I forgot what this is actually called; but it's where the host thinks up a monster, and each round people get one guess, giving a hint each round til someone gets it.

EDIT: something like that, but it would continue for a while I assume.

Hrm... When would be a good time for Europeans, then? If I change the time soon, I could just re-edit my first post, so any time suggestions would be welcome.

EDIT: Seamonkey gets 4 YBs for the ideas. Monster Guessing and Mafia are pretty obvious, but I had forgotten about PWNZOR. I think I have the sheet, somewhere...

How about 6 PM? I can be there then too.

(Monster guessing game is called Monster Trivia, BTW. Also, this may sound weird, but how about... *drumroll* CHAT T&T?!?)

Okay, so that's...12 PM Jamul time. I bit earlier then I wanted, but if more people arrive, it'll be worth it.

Wait wait, isn't "Jamul time" GMT-8? "European" time tends to be around GMT, how could 18:00 be 12:00 in Jamul time? Or am I incorrect about what "Jamul time" is? (Wish people would just use an actual time zone instead of saying "Jamul time" D:)

He never said it would be 6PM in +/- 0, he just said it was going to be in 12 Jamul time, which is 8 PM +/- 0

Uhm, yes, he did. Bowserfan said 6 PM "European" time, and Wesley said that would be "12 PM" Jamul time.

Oh whoops, my bad. I saw the first post referring to 6 PM Jamul time and then him saying 6 PM so I associated it and just scrolled down. (Man, that almost sounds like your typical Youtuber with video descriptions)

We need that game (forgotten what it's called) where there is a scenario and there are three choices, one of them gives 0 points, one gives 1 point and one gives 2 points. Person with the most points after a certain amount of rounds wins, perhaps?

Made a new post, so everyone would see it. The time I'll be using is (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada). I'll re-edit this back into the first post. Regardless, 12 PM at this time is ample opportunity for anyone to play. Of course, not everyone in the world will be able to play at this time, but most will.

Here's three from the old chat tourneys:

Conspiracy
The host decides whether there is a conspiracy or not. If there is a conspiracy, the host chooses one player to be innocent. The host then PMs the conspirators who the innocent is, and sends a PM to the innocent that they are innocent. The conspirators proceed to try and trick the innocent into thinking that there is not a conspiracy. At the end of discussion time, the innocent PMs their guess to the host. If they guess there is not a conspiracy, each of the conspirators gain a point. If they guess correctly, they gain a point. If there is not a conspiracy, the host PMs everyone that they are innocent. If a player guesses there is not a conspiracy, they gain a point. Regardless, the host then announces that discussion has begun, and sets a time limit of 5-10 minutes (more if there are more players). When the time is up, discussion stops and the host gets guesses from every innocent. Points are then awarded as described previously.

Hot Potato
For each round, the host (secretly) decides a time limit (between about 30 seconds and 2 minutes). At the start of the time, he says the name of one player. This player must say the name of another in a phrase, such as "Watch out, Professor Placeholder!" or "Here you are, Mumblebob". The player thrown to must throw to another player. This cycle continues, and no player can say the same phrase for a second time during that round. When the time limit is up, the last player thrown to is eliminated, and play continues in the next round. A player is awarded one point for each time he was the last to throw at the player eliminated in a round.

You Don't Say
In this game, the host thinks of the name of a Hamumu-related thing and gives the players clues as to the sounds of the syllables in that Hamumu-related thing. These clues should be given one at a time, waiting until they are understood, until there are no more syllable clues. These clues do not have to be given in order. After all clues have been given, no more clues should be given to indicate placement of syllables. The first person to guess the Hamumu-related thing wins two points.

Don't worry too much about the points stuff, they were used so that winning a game of, say, chat mafia would be more important in the long run than winning a game of snowball fight.

Hmm... I may have to start the chat tourneys up again sometime.
