A while ago in the derail thread, there was a game of Hangman. It was real fun but it fizzled out. I think it could be a good Beatles game.

The rules are you guess a letter that you think is in the word. To make this game manageable, once there are ten incorrect guessed letter (so if two people guess E at the same time and it is not right, that only counts as one incorrect guess) someone else can take over, if you guess the last letter or the word, it is your turn.

Give the winner of the round an @ so they will know to post the next word.

It is also better to guess letters rather than words unless you think you know it.

You are allowed to give hints for your word.

It can be multiple words, though you should state how many words you have in your first post.

You can do both Beatles and solo words.

To use a vowel, five non vowels must be guessed correctly (You can still guess the word at this stage)

You can post a picture of the hangman but that is not required.

I'll start with something (I hope is) easy.

6 letter word

I'm going to be the party bore. Isn't this the kind of game Joe wants to avoid as there will numerous posts of one letter as people try to guess the word/name/song title/location?

Also it would be most fitting if the "victim" was Pete Best as he was hung out to dry (in some people's eyes at least).

Here is the rule

Edit: also, for the love of Epstein, please ensure that the games involve a degree of skill! The last-letter game is an example of something we should probably avoid, where it goes on for page after page but doesn't really add anything.

This game requires a degree of skill. You guess letters and try to figure out which Beatles or Solo Beatles related thing the word is. There is a goal so each post adds something and builds of each other for the duration of the round like The "Name that picture thread" though we are guessing a word not a picture and there are numerous posts with a song title to guess the song the picture represents.

So, should we wait till Joe comes and sorts it out, or continue?

I like the game, however.

I say continue, then people can see that the game is alright.

If that is a concern, guesses can be submitted by posting something like "Is there a Z?", instead of just posting Z.

Why don't you do it that way until @Joe can advise if this is OK? My two cents feels this might be a cool game, but I don't want to authorize anything that can hurt the Forum.

@Ahhh Girl - FYI.

BTW, @meanmistermustard , love the PB "victim" sentiment - funny. pete-best

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
