david.atwell Posted July 25, 2009 Share Posted July 25, 2009 Well, after a short reasonable hiatus, we're back! From outer space! The Hurt and Heal Game Here's the goal: Make your favorite choice win, and make your least favorite choice lose. Winning and Losing: Winning: The first choice that reaches 100 (or the last choice standing) wins, ending the game. Losing: As each choice reaches 0, it is removed from the list. It has lost. In the event that only two choices remain, both scores are reset to 50 and the "shootout" begins! What you do: "Hurt" a choice by subtracting 10 from its score. "Heal" a choice by adding 5 to its score. (You must do both of these in each turn) Rules: You may only "Hurt and Heal" once each 24-hour period. Once a choice reaches 0, it is gone. You may not re-add it to the list. Let it die an honorable death. :-) The posted scoreboard comprises the only options. You may not add new options. Discussion will be held before each edition of (+/-); discuss choices there. If someone "beats you" in posting, change your scoreboard to reflect the change. Be courteous. Keep it on topic. You can talk briefly about how you chose what to hurt and heal, but take any off topic threads to . Also, if you have any ideas for the theme for the next Hurt & Heal, post them underneath your scoreboard, or in the Hurt & Heal Discussion Thread. That'll make prep for the next one easier. Everyone clear? All right! The theme for this Hurt and Heal Game is... Best Sidekick! Where would a hero be without a sidekick? Ah, the little guy. Our gateway to a different and exciting world. Here's the starting scoreboard, presented in alphabetical order.  The Doctor's Companion, from Doctor Who  John Watson, Sherlock Holmes' sidekick (Elementary!)  Little John, Robin Hood's fellow merry outlaw  Luigi, Mario's jumping buddy  Navi, a thorn in Link's side  Obélix, Astérix's Roman-hating compatriot  Robin, Batman's "other half"  Ron Weasley, Harry Potter's magical friend  Sam Gamgee, Frodo Baggins' gardener  Woodstock, Snoopy's birdbrained friend (||||||!!) Holy second billing, Batman! Let's go! Quote The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.Amy: But how did it end up in there?The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
