For the second month in a row, Andrew is our puzzle winner. Good job! Most of the answers were figured out by at least one person. Castaway was a nice alternative answer to 15…which was better than the attempted James Bond character answer for 12. Ahem.Read the rest of this entry »

The next play-by-email word game will be Codenames. I’ve never played it but it sounds interesting. You can learn about it here. Basically, there is a group of 25 words which are the codenames of spies. Some belong to blue team, some belong to red team, and there is also an assassin and innocents in the mix.
Each team has a spymaster who knows which words belong to spies on their team. It is their job to give one word clues to get their teammate to correctly find one ore more of their team’s spies. The team who finds all their spies first wins. Incorrect guesses will help your opponent. Guessing the assassin will end your game.
Hoping for 12-16 players, but can probably accommodate any even number. Whether we play this round-robin, Swiss system, etc will depend on the number of signups.

2. the amount by which destruction or the capacity for destruction exceeds what is necessary.
Even if the town had had the time and stomach for it, they likely wouldn’t have been able to put this puzzle together. The bloody pieces were strewn across the town square. It was only once everyone had gathered and they noted her absence that they knew who the pieces belonged to.

It was no surprise Daneekas Ghost was having trouble sleeping tonight. After a five hour rotation of turning off the light, turning on the light to read for awhile, he finally gave up two books into it.
He started a pot of coffee then opened up his closet and retrieved his suit so he could iron it one last time. He grabbed a lint roller that was down to a scant few sheets and eyed his suit for any stragglers but he could fine none. Today was his day, and he was going to marry Annette in this suit.Read the rest of this entry »
Starting singups for the next game after werewolf. It’s a new play by email game I came up with (maybe it exists already, I don’t know). Think of it as musical chairs crossed with Scattergories…kind of.
Each day you will be given a category. You provide an answer that fits that category. However, you do not want your answer to match anyone else’s answer. Everyone who provided the most popular answer will receive a strike. Three strikes and you are out.
The game will continue until there is only one person left. As the number of participants decrease, the broadness of the categories will decrease to match.
