We have a party to plan! Can't Post

i know this is early, but sometimes we need time to be creative ;)

April 26 (a Thursday) will be TORn's 19th TORniversary and so our FOUNDERS DAY PARTY!

Please put your thinking caps on and let's have ourselves some FUN!

Please post what game or idea you would like to host here so we can have a heads-up (dups OK!). Although, spontaeous game/activity posts are always welcome on the day! Remember, the Party is spread-out over a few days; so if you're not around for the day you can do it later :)

As before, we'll post on Main and Off Topic. If we get real busy and have lots of game ideas, we can add on more Boards. Please stick your Party Thread in the corresponding subject-area Board and put **FD PARTY - in the subject line so we know it's part of the festivities :)

I'll send out a reminder a few days before the 26th.

Thanks lots!

PS: OMG! Can you believe next year will be our 20th TORniversary!? PARTY LIKE IT'S 1999!!! *kerplunk*

My party game (#1 of ?) [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm putting together a game that shows little snippet-pictures of clothing, weapons, or belongings of LotR and Hobbit movie characters. Then YOU will have to tell us what it is and who it belongs to. For example:

1.
Answer (highlighted) Gandalf's Pipe


EASY PEASY! (for now ;)

As I get going here (having WAY too much fun), I may break it down into 1 game with clothing; 1 game with weapons; 1 game with belongings.

OR

1 game with all 3 sets of pic for The Hobbit and 1 game with 3 sets for LotR.

You'll know soon ;)

What to do, what to do... [In reply to] Can't Post

A quiz? A Mad Lib? A logic puzzle?

And can we really be coming up on 20 Years next year? An astounding Score! Laugh

Thank you for getting the ball rolling on this, gramma!

There used to be a UK cartoon strip [In reply to] Can't Post

called 'In search of the lost consonants'. The aim was to create a ridiculous sentence by missing out one consonant, altering the meaning completely. They were accompanied by daft photo collages - Google it and you'll see what I mean.

A few examples are:
The father was present to give away the brie.
Few pirate prisoners escaped 'waking the plank'.
Every time the doorbell rang, the dog started baking.

I wonder if there would be any mileage in trying this with Tolkien, for a bit of fun? What do folk think?
e.g. ...Frodo thought the old wizard looked unusually bent, almost as if he was carrying a great eight.

Another example? [In reply to] Can't Post

[A recently divorced woman] is out hose hunting. (Actual post on a forum I frequented, long ago.)

We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a Mmak. But we got him!

It's almost time! :D Put Your Game Ideas Here! [In reply to] Can't Post

As we get closer to Thursday's Founders Day Party, please let me know if you have a party favour you'd like to share so I can get primp my prep :)

I've narrowed mine down to at least 2 that has changed a bit from my original idea. One is seeing who belongs to a snippet of eyes shown in a pic (Eye See You) and the same sort of game I'm fondly calling "Flame On!"

I'm also going to have the Six Subject Line Challenge game weaver often posted :)

Thanks! :D

For In Search of the Lost Consonants [In reply to] Can't Post

I will do three from Fellowship, from The Two Towers and from Return of the King, and invite people to add to the list - let's see what happens! It can take quite a bit of reading to find something that will work and be a bit funny, but hey, that's no hardship is it?

No hardship AT ALL! The goodest stuff SHOULD take a bit of brain power and creativity! I can't wait to see what you've come up with :D

Would you mind posting this in the Reading Room? It sounds like a perfect fit :D I'll be posting links to all the games, so it will definitely be found there. squire is also posting his there. THANKS LOTS! :D

Watch for the Official Send Off on Off Topic :D [In reply to] Can't Post

Feel free to post your games or activities on Main, Off Topic or Reading Room whenever you're ready. *geeky hand clapping* :D

If you're not sure where to post, just look at each Board's number of FD activities and post on the least active Board. I'll be collecting links to all the events and posting them together... so everyone will find them.

THANKS OOODLES TO ONE AND ALL!! :D
