Snopes bingo
 
I have a new idea for a game, which might be fun, but it could also become kind of annoying. Thus if the mods say no, no big deal.

Here are the rules.

1. There is only one bingo card per game.

2. You mark a square off by being the first to post in this thread quoting or pointing to the post in which the phrase or smiley is used.

3. First claimant gets to count the square; if it’s not you, you have to wait for the phrase to appear again.

4. Phrases and smileys only count in the body of a post.

5. The judge is the person who creates the bingo card; the judge’s decision is final.

6. Close paraphrases are ok; judge decides what counts.

7. The winner gets to make the next card and be the next judge.

8. You cannot claim a phrase used in this thread, or in your own post in another thread.

9. You may only use posts made since the current bingo card began. i.e., in this case, after the timestamp on this post.

10. You are responsible for keeping track of the squares you have been awarded.

11. The first person to get all nine must post here with the words “SNOPES BINGO!”

12. Other rules may be added as we go along, in case there's something I haven't thought of, not just to mess with your minds.

Here is the first bingo card, so I’m making it easy:

ROLLY EYE ICON___________Cite, please__________DOYC

NFBSK___________________Rant_______________SQUEE

Clinton__________________UL__________________Hitle r

As an example if one of the squares was "Obama," the first person to point to this post, http://message.snopes.com/showpost.p...6&postcount=23, for example, would get to check the square.

It's in the "Letters..." thread.

In the " Republican apologizes..." thread.

And does this quote from the "Top Gear" thread count for NFBSK?

Chloe 06 September 2011 02:13 PM

I'll check the times, but assuming they check out, first three squares to Don Enrico...

Don Enrico 07 September 2011 10:16 AM

I seem to be the only one playing, but we can as well finish this round, can't we?

The "Man Dies From Toothache..." thread gives me both the rant

count for SQUEE?

Chloe 07 September 2011 03:55 PM

You are the only one playing, but that's just because it's a game for the intelligent and handsome only.

You have six of the nine squares already!

Isn't this more fun than making a giant ball out of rubber bands?

Yeah , but as soon as I jag the ninth one, and trump the Don with my call of "HOUSIE!", I shall be the most intelligentest, and dare I say it? The most handomest snopster going.:cool:

Don Enrico 09 September 2011 09:00 AM

SatansHobbit, I won't try to compete with you in handsomness - I've seen the pictures! :eek:

Eight down, one to go.

SatansHobbit 09 September 2011 09:21 AM

Yet I'm even more handsome when I'm clothed :confused:

You're after "Doik", aren't ya? :D

Don Enrico 09 September 2011 09:44 AM

No need to deliberatly mis-print, SatansHobbit, see rule #8 above. And you're right, I'm after DOYC - but the only uses I could find up to now are to old.

I will not be online over the weekend - that will be your (and anybody else's) chance to catch up.

Mad Jay 09 September 2011 02:08 PM

Well, Don Enrico, for a low low price, I'll make a post with Doik in it :D

Don Enrico 12 September 2011 07:39 AM

The "Relationships" thread has this

and while it has a typo, I'm going to claim it to end this game.

So: "Snopes Bingo!"

Chloe 12 September 2011 04:00 PM

Nicely done. The prize is a shiny sense of pride, and the right to set the next game, if anyone but me is likely to play.

Mateus 12 September 2011 06:12 PM

What the heck, I'll give it a shot this round as well. :)

Chloe 12 September 2011 06:34 PM

Hurrah! I think that means you're up, Don Enrico...

Don Enrico 13 September 2011 08:26 AM

Oh, I didn't expect that. Let's see...

Obama__________teh*__________a picture of a cat or a dog

Aussie________Fox News________Bachmann
:fish:________snopster**______a European capital


* this spelling only!
** any female variant counts, too

All the original rules apply. And the game starts...

NOW!
