Well, voting was chaotic, dispersed, and generally inconclusive for our bonus round regarding [livejournal.com profile] featherynscale's DNR tattoo. But since I'm running this sideshow, I'll give out the awards here:
  • [livejournal.com profile] leiandra's "Deliciously Nibbleable Rack" and [livejournal.com profile] orcjohn's "Do Not Remove" both got three votes, but [livejournal.com profile] leiandra gets the Speed Bonus for being the first submission!
  • Queen's Prize goes to [livejournal.com profile] 8elements's "Decidedly Near Ribcage", which got K's seal of approval. :)
  • Narcissus' Self-Congratulatory Award goes to [livejournal.com profile] oreibasia who may not ever have played before, and hence not realized she wasn't supposed to vote for her own "Desires Nipple Rub". However [livejournal.com profile] arkhamrefugee agreed with her, so it's not as if the idea was wholly without merit (the man knows something about breasts, I believe). ;)
  • [livejournal.com profile] kenllama and [livejournal.com profile] celtic_elk take the Separated At Birth prize, having *both* submitted "Damn Nice Rack", just with different punctuation. Great minds think alike, or what? [livejournal.com profile] lexpendragon agreed, and voted for them, so they each get 1/2 point apiece for #4. :P
  • The Funny Yet True award goes to #71...err, 17, "Respects Needy Dyslexics" by [livejournal.com profile] lexpendragon; [livejournal.com profile] saffronhare and (unsurprisingly) [livejournal.com profile] druidevo voted for it, and [livejournal.com profile] matchgirl42 gave it two LOLs up.
  • [livejournal.com profile] zerself's entry deserves to be read in its entirety, as she put some actual thought into how to make a Do Not Resuscitate tattoo workable without violating the Princess Bride rules about perfect breasts. Her actual submission, "Do i Need a Reason?", while violating the strictest rules for Acrophobia, did collect a vote from [livejournal.com profile] matchgirl, and nearly from me.
  • Finally, [livejournal.com profile] lexpendragon deserves the You Spent Way Too Much Time Thinking About This, Didn't You? award for having one real entry, seven runners-up, and a graphic! He actually received four votes total amongst those, but divided by 8, that's not very much...
Excellently well-played, folks.

Yesterday's bonus round got a ...ahem, "bumper" crop of submissions (some people put in more than one and didn't specify which was their actual; others put in multiple good ones). Since this round's all for fun anyway, I'm putting everything but the kitchen sink on the list.

Vote for your favorite )

Also, Lex provided another helpful graphic with his entry:

Anyone can play, even if they weren't involved before. This one isn't for points, just for kicks.

So featherynscale is having some health worries )

Answers are screened; voting will take place tomorrow.

Fewer entries, but a fair lot of voting; there was a four-way tie for some time that was finally broken:

Lots of good ones... )
I think this'll be the last round I run for a while; everything else in my life is fairly busy, and this is sucking up what little time/energy I have for posting on LJ as it is. Conveniently, we finally have a clear point leader after this round

In random order, here's the entries from Round 7. Anyone may vote, even if you didn't submit an answer this round; since there's no "right answer", feel free to select based on humor, vocabulary, or whatever other criteria you may have. You may not vote for your own, though! The top-rated answer receives 3 bonus points, and everyone who votes for the top answer receives a bonus point. Voting will go for roughly 48 hours.

And the candidates are... )

Votes will be private; I'll unscreen both the submissions and votes after the round is over.

Real post in a bit, but first the next round for Acrophobia. Round 7's theme is "Animals" - for the purposes of this round, let's exclude "people" from being the primary focus of satisfying the theme (there can be people in the acronym, but some sort of other creature as well. Mythical vs. real creatures is not a problem, however. :)

Rules: In part A, I'll give you an acronym. You come up with a backronym for what it stands for. Punctuation, proper nouns, etc are allowed, but nothing identifying you as the submitter. I'll accept entries for 48 hours; all comments will be screened private.

In part B, I'll scramble the entries and post them for your judging approval.

Ready? Go! )

Tough round, but the people's favorites were clear... sort of.

A tie?!? )

I will need another theme for the next round - suggestions?

In random order, here's the meager entries from Round 6 (this one was apparently tough!). Anyone may vote, even if you didn't submit an answer this round; since there's no "right answer", feel free to select based on humor, vocabulary, or whatever other criteria you may have. You may not vote for your own, though! The top-rated answer receives 3 bonus points, and everyone who votes for the top answer receives a bonus point. Voting will go for roughly 48 hours.

I'm back in the office today, so the theme for Round 6 will be "work". Anything related to employment, working, The Man, etc will do for an answer.

Rules: In part A, I'll give you an acronym. You come up with a backronym for what it stands for. Punctuation, proper nouns, etc are allowed, but nothing identifying you as the submitter. I'll accept entries for 48 hours; all comments will be screened private.

Voting on the weekend probably depressed the number of voters, but the early leader held on to the end:

Klingons and Wookies and Harkonnens, Oh My! )

I need a theme for the next round - acronym will be shorter this time, probably 3 or 4 letters. Suggestions?

Point Totals after five rounds - what is it with you two? People will start to talk... )

Here's Round 5, with a longer acronym and a harder (maybe) theme: all answers must involve science fiction in some way. If I can't figure out the reference, I'll probably drop you an email before I just drop the entry. I'm thinking that means the Mithril Hauberks are right out, this time...

Colors ran in a couple of patterns, but there was one clear winner this time:

As if you all were a bunch of fantasy geeks... )

I think the next round (tomorrow!) will be science fiction, but I'll take suggestions on themes for future rounds. Also, the 48-hour round seemed to garner more submissions and more votes, so they'll take a little longer in the future.

Point Totals, with a leader once more! )

In random order, here's the entries from Round 4 (and I got enough answers in the extended timeperiod that I think I'll go to 48-hour cycles from now on). Anyone may vote, even if you didn't submit an answer this round; since there's no "right answer", feel free to select based on humor, vocabulary, or whatever other criteria you may have. You may not vote for your own, though! The top-rated answer receives 3 bonus points, and everyone who votes for the top answer receives a bonus point. Voting will go for roughly 48 hours.

Here's Round 4, with a theme this time: all answers must involve some colo(u)r(s), or reference to color. If I can't figure out the reference, I'll probably drop you an email before I just drop the entry.

Rules: In part A, I'll give you an acronym. You come up with a backronym for what it stands for. Punctuation, proper nouns, etc are allowed, but nothing identifying you as the submitter. I'll accept entries for 24 48 hours; all comments will be screened private.

In part B, I'll scramble the entries and post them for your judging approval.

Ready? Go! )

::edit:: Extending deadline another day, I think the holiday is making people delayed in their responses.
triadruid: Apollo and the Raven, c. 480 BC , Pistoxenus Painter  (Default)
Strange synchronicity in some of the answers this time, but one answer eked out a win by a margin of one (and had a little comic to go with it):



BattleStar Bush should have won? )

Next time we'll start theme rounds, so what appeals most: Colors, Science Fiction, or Movies?
