Weekly Movie Still Game (due Sat, 20 Jul 2013, 1700 GMT)

#1 Post by Bill » 19 Feb 2013, 16:11

OK, I've done this exact game before, but instead, it's going to be a tourney. I will do a new round every week (maybe every other week, depending how well this goes), and tally up the points from each month until the end of the year (or until I run out of movies to use) where I will declare a winner.

To remind you how this works: there will be ten movies, and two screenshots from each movie in sets. The first set will be harder and each shot is will be worth two points. After the second set goes up, it will be a little easier but worth only one point each.

This is important: If you correctly guess a movie on the first set, but change your answer on the second set, you will not receive your two points.

Anyways, only for the this round, there is a theme- you will get two extra points for it if you get it correctly (one point if guessed in the second set)

Remember, this is a PM game. Your deadline for the first set will be Saturday the 23rd at 12am PST.

First set:
****

Games won:
Batman: 11
knarf: 4
Evildawgs: 1
Bill: 1
Fat Head 1

Nice game, but I can't say I'm certain about any of these shots...

I can't say I have a clue on any of these shots...unless of course #4 is The Piano.

24 hours left before the second set goes up. Got only three PMs so far (gee, I guess this game won't be weekly after all :roll: )

It's a great game and I thank you for making it, Bill. I'm just being slow submitting my first round of guesses. Hopefully others will also make a submission as this place gets pretty boring without regular games to play.
Robin: "Gosh, Batman, is there anything you don't know?"
Batman: "Oh yes, Robin. Several things, in fact."

I'll try to get some input as well. I think these shots were just too hard for most people. I generally like these games. Hell, I think most of us were attracted to FW for similar (invisibles) games in the first place.

Just to make sure I'm one of the three: I sent mine in a few days ago.
I hate purity. Hate goodness. I don't want virtue to exist anywhere. I want everyone corrupt.

Thank you guys. Sorry if I came off as pissy, it's just that the reception was poor and I felt like the game might be worth nothing. I don't know.

Perhaps I made the screenshots too hard? (that is kind of the point, afterall...)

Anyways, one hour left.

I agree with Bill, the point is they are hard, then the second lot are easier (not that makes a difference with me for #10). What's the point in a quiz that everyone gets top scores?

Keep it up, Bill. At least for a few more weeks. I'm not sure how many of us realized a new game was up. I think participation will grew. It's a good game. I'll try to get my answers in today or tomorrow.
I'm not insane, my mother had me tested!

I finally recognize a few... I think I'll stick to spectating, though. I am admiring the quiz all the same.
...unless something better's on TV
