Kat (kaitlins16) *This is the setup page, not the actual game*

This is one of my favorite games. It can get intense if there's many people online playing at once, and it can really test your persistence in rooting for your favorite character.

So here's how it works:

There's a list of characters from books (usually with a theme like heroines, heroes, supporting characters, villains, etc.) and each one starts out with 10 points. The point of the game is to eliminate other characters in order for your favorite to win.

So, for each post, you would take one point away from one character and add it to another character. Characters are eliminated when they reach zero, and the last one standing wins!

*edit*
Actually, its more like when there are two characters left, who has the most points. It would just go in circles if we tried to narrow it down to one single character.

Ongoing list of Winners:

Kat (kaitlins16) Game Announcement

There will be multiple rounds played for each category(e.g we've had one round of Favorite Guys, and are nearing the end of round one of Couples, but then sometime later there will be round two of each category.) I was originally planning to pick the last three standing characters in each round to put into the next round, but I have decided to change that.

Instead, there will be four rounds for each category--each with its very own set of characters--and the fifth round will be a list of the winners from each round. That way, we won't have the same character winning each round.

So, this means no characters from round one of Favorite Guys are eligible for round two, not even the top three.

However, if there's a shortage of character suggestions, I will take the first three characters that went out and add them to that round's list.


message 7: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Tomorrow I will be creating a Heroines round, so if anyone else has any character suggestions, I suggest listing them soon.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Here?

Katniss Everdeen
Hermione Granger
Annabeth Chase
Tris Prior
Clary Fray
Tessa Gray
Six (I am number four)
Katsa (last name?)


message 9: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Thanks. Sorry, the list is being postponed another day. :(


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay cool. Oh wait idiotic me they're already all up there I didn't look *bangs head on desk repeatedly* Ouch


message 11: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Should the next round be Supporting Characters (round 1) or Favorite Guys (round 2)?


message 12: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth I haven't done a supporting characters before that sounds like fun


message 13: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 30 comments Are we still listing who we want to be in the Supportig Characters and Favorite Guys?


message 14: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Yeah. I think we should do a supporting characters one. So, basically, these are the best friends of main characters. They are not the central characters.

I counted 7 previously suggested. I would like to have 11 people for each round (that's how many I've had for the last two rounds). I would also like new suggestions for the next rounds for the Favorite Guys (11 that have not been used before).


message 15: by Jessica (last edited Apr 01, 2013 04:41PM) (new)

Jessica | 30 comments Supporting-
Della and Miranda from Born at Midnight
Bex and Macey from the Galaghers Girls series.

Guys-
Zach from Galagher Girls series. (I don't know if he's been used yet)
Seth from Unlovable
Hale from Heist Society
Derek from the Darkest Powers series
Geric from the Goose Girl
Ian and Jared from the Host

Just a few suggestions.


message 16: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Thanks.


message 17: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 30 comments Oh and there is also...
Trip from Shaken
Astley from the need series
Tamani from the Wings series
Jay from the Body Finders series
Lend from Paranormalcy

You don't have to use all of them. Just some suggestions to choose from.


message 18: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Okay. When I take take characters that you have mentioned coming from the same series ("like Bex and Macey"), I will use only one for a round, then the other for the next round.


message 19: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 30 comments okay sounds good.


message 20: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Now, I need two more supporting characters. Only two more!


message 21: by Jessica (last edited Apr 01, 2013 06:08PM) (new)

Jessica | 30 comments What about Lucas from Starcrossed


message 22: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) He would go on the Favorite Guys one right?


message 23: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) I'm adding Lissa from Vampire Academy to the supporting characters. Now, I need to get one more.


message 24: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth did you get hana


message 25: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Yep. The last supporting character will be a certain funny satyr from a series featuring half-bloods. :)


message 26: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth lol to cool can't wait


message 27: by Ray (new)

Ray | 53 comments how about we do a um.....amimal thing.


like Grimalkin from Iron fey
Church From TMI and TID
Hopper From Bloodlines
Kenji From Darkness rising


message 28: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Maybe. It could be a one-round type (because I honestly can't imagine their being a lot of rounds with animals from books).

You all are free to keep suggesting characters in this thread. Right now, though, I'm looking for fresh new Favorite Guys from books. I would like to post the round (number 2) tomorrow. Jessica has suggested a lot of characters, but I would like to spread her suggestions out throughout a couple rounds so that more people's suggestions are in this next round.

Kat (kaitlins16) Go ahead with that info you have. :)


message 37: by Ray (new)

Ray | 53 comments Alright, here goes. And don't ask me about the relationship between them, trust me you don't wanna know.

The Olympians:

Zeus - King of the Gods, God Of The Sky, Storms, Lightning and Heaven.

Hera - Queen of the Gods, Goddess Of Heaven, Family, Marriage, Woman, Childbirth, Kings, Heirs and Empires.

Poseidon - God of The Seas, rivers, floods, droughts, earthquakes, and the creator of horses.

Aphrodite - Goddess of Love, Beauty, Pleasure and Desire.

Apollo - God of light, music, arts, knowledge, healing, plague and darkness, prophecy, poetry, purity, athletism, manly beauty, and enlightenment.

Artemis - Virgin goddess of the hunt, wilderness, animals, young girls, childbirth, plague and the moon.

Ares - God of war, bloodshed, and violence.

Athena - Goddess of intelligence and skill, warfare, battle strategy, handicrafts, and wisdom.

Demeter - Goddess of grain, agriculture and the harvest, growth and nourishment.

Dionysus - God of wine, parties and festivals, madness, chaos, drunkenness, drugs, and ecstasy.

Hephaestus - Crippled god of fire, metalworking, and crafts.

Hermes - God of boundaries, travel, communication, trade, thievery, trickery, language, writing, diplomacy, athletics, and animal husbandry.

Non-Olympian main Gods.

Hades - King of the underworld and the dead, and god of the earth's hidden wealth, both agricultural produce and precious metals.

Hestia - Virgin goddess of the hearth, home and chastity.

Phew....and those were the main Gods. Tell me if you want the minor ones.
