Describe a game/movie poorly, but accurately
« on: April 19, 2013, 06:42:22 AM »
So, I've noticed the problem with the pictionary game is not everyone feels comfortable drawing.

So why not try a similar game, but one that doesn't require drawing skills?

The idea of the game is that one person creates a poor (but accurate) description of a game or a movie and everyone else has to guess it, first one to guess it right describes the next one.

As people give you wrong answers you're free to add extra hints/descriptions

Examples:

Person A: You wear orange and you jump
Persbon B: Super Mario

Another Example:

Person A: Your hometown has less then 10 people
Person b: Final Fantasy?
Person A: Nope! The only person your age is a huge jerk
Person B: I have no idea
Person A: There's a Scientist in your hometown that gives you a choice of 3 beasts
Person B: Pokemon?
Person A: Yep, your turn!


Sound fun? :P

I'll start first!

There's balls and ghosts

I have my cake and eat it too, until it's gone.  Then I can't do either.

Nope.  You have to beat demons into submission.

Dungeon Hunter
In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Well, I'm not 100% certain it's the correct answer. It does seem right from my recollection of the game. I think it's an iPad only release.

There are three games in the series, and I believe the release of the fourth is imminent.  The first one was quite good. But it's your basic hack and slash RPG. The second one improved on some things and didn't do others as well. I was a little less enamored with it than the first, but it's probably a matter of personal taste.

I have not played the third as it includes microtransactions. As a general rule (although there are exceptions), I avoid any games with in-app purchases.

Oh, and I see actually that Dungeon Hunter 4 has been released. It also looks like to me that the sequels (but not the original) are available for Android devices.

Sorry for the delay.  Stupid life.

Nope.  An angel in training keeps bothering you about love.
