Below are the rules and descriptions of the Banjo Hangout’s most popular games.




A to Z Game:

  • Post a word relating to the current subject of the game going from A to Z. Whoever posts the word that starts with “Z” will start a new subject.



Answer a Question with a Question Game:

  • Answer the question that was asked before you with a question of your own.

  • One of the most mentally challenging games.



Film Title Game:

  • Each new film title must contain at least one of the words from the previous film title.

  • Players may use a "wild card" at any time by taking an actor/actress that was in the previous movie title, and posting another movie title that he/she starred in.



Four-Word Story Game:

  • Add four words per post to this never ending novel.



I Survived the 300 Post Game:

  • A fast game of posting without double posting for a prize. For ages 3+. No. of players: 2 to 200 (the more the better). Average game time is 1 to 3 days.

  • The object of the game is to have the most posts of a round.

  • The player who starts a round is the player that won the previous round and is in charge of supplying a new prize for the next round. He/she is also responsible for setting up the time that a round will take.

  • No double posting is allowed during a round. Double post = posting back-to-back to yourself without another players post between. If you are caught by the round moderator double posting, that post will not count and you must type “I will not double post” 500 times. Hint: use copy and paste.

  • The winner gets the prize and starts a new round.

  • However, due to the immense time needed to win, the game has not had a round in a long, long time. Hopefully some day enough people will be interested that the rounds will start again. Until then it will remain as Ace (Mr. Quimby) put it “a few die-hards stopping in and chatting and passing the time.”



Rate the Avatar Above You Game:

  • Add a caption to the person’s avatar that posted above you. FYI, an “avatar” is the picture you see to the left of their post.



Song Title Game:

  • Each new song title must contain at least one of the words from the previous song title.



This or That Game:

  • Choose one of the two things in the post above you. Then think of two things and put them in your post.



Who Gets the First Word Game:

  • A fast paced easy game for ages 2+. No. of players: 1 to 500. Estimated game time is 30 seconds.

  • The player who posts the First Word is the winner of that round

  • Every new post is a new round

  • Everyone is a winner



Who Gets the Last Word Game:

  • A quick (or epic) game of wits. For dedicated, fearless Game Warriors ages 2+. No. of players: 1 to 500 (at least two for best results). Estimated game time: 2 days to 3 weeks depending upon no. of players.

  • The object of the game is to have the last post once the thread gets to around 50 pages and gets locked. That person is then the winner of that round.

  • Only one will be the true winner.

In the Film Game....

Austin.....you need to EDIT your post and mention that players can use a "wild card" at any time.

This is when a player takes an actor or actress from that movie, and uses it another movie.

Example:

Cable Guy

The next player would say:

wild card- Jim Carrey

The Mask

EDIT- Thanks for adding that, Austin!

Shawn, open up a new tab in your browser at the top.

Have one tab for the Game forum, and another for the Off-topics forum. Just click back and forth and refresh the page to see if there are new posts.

You can do both at the same time, almost. It's no big deal.

good idea Dennis. I'm just not a big fan of change, and I've even read and understood 'Who Moved My Cheese'

Enter Your Completely Pointless Comment Here "game":

This one isn't acatually a game. It got shuffled into this forum by worried moderators concerned about the sanctity of the "non-banjo-related" forum.

This game started as a blatant "post ho" attempt by a member who's been around long enough to know better, and the fact that it has continued to grow and prosper should be construed as an empirical proof of the Law of Unintended Consequences.

There are but two rules. First, it's about pointless comments, not dumb questions, so make sure that you comply with that.

The second rule is to make your comment pointless. Bonus points for amusing non-sequiturs are awarded - but news of same is not shared with those who've earned them.

Jaminbanjo, in that I've made numerous attempts to kill this thread and it Will Not Die. I submit that you should edit your rules sticky accordingly.

The Four Letter Word Game

There seems to be no rules for this game. The rules were explained in the first post of the game:

Rules are simple:
Change the current word into a new word by changing one letter only.
You cannot rearrange, add or remove letters.
I select a word with four letters, and all other word has to be four letters.
Don't repeat word that already is on the same page.

Name That Tune!
Premise: You post a lyric from a song (in a quote box), We try to guess name of song, artist, and cd the song is on. if you want maybe post a little more of the lyrics.

Rules: KEEP IT CLEAN if you know the song has bad words or bad content don't use it. You can use Google. The next song is to be posted by the one who found the previous song. No new song until the previous one has been identified.

The 'IS TO' Game

'Is to' game rules a variation on the ongoing word association game, simple enough,

could be little testing though, follow along in reply using a two line literary associated sentence, see the two examples   smiley

Cat is to milk

as milk is to cow

------------------------------------

Cow is to field

as field is to play

Scrabble Game.

Easily played, the posting of jumbled up letters, gamers must unscramble the presented set of jumbled up letters to find the hidden word set by the poster, *there actually could be a different word hidden and not noticed by the original poster,* the “word solver” then sets another jumbled up letter word, standard dictionary or 'Webster's new world dictionary' is useful or even an 'Electronic puzzle solver', if there are any players of the ‘REAL’ game then best to follow ‘Bowdlerize’ principles, in reference to the Official scrabble players dictionary, I mention this only by way of saying to keep this game in good standing, and to leave out any words considered improper or offensive, as a note, having words of say nine or more letters can be more difficult to solve,…however, lets us see how this game unfolds…please check your jumbled letters carefully,..its acceptable to place a clue/hint at the side of the 'jumbled up' letter word......

                                                                             Rules

1. Abbreviated letters as similar are allowed such as MRSA this stands for "Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus"

2. There could be a different word or an abbreviation not noticed by the original poster. This other word or abbreviation is acceptable.

Here are a couple of starter examples:

onbaj

answer: Banjo

New: utrecmpo

answer: computer
