Banish the Imp - GAME OVER! jttm80 wins!

Post by TaleSpinner » Thu Nov 02, 2006 11:37 am

Here's a very light party game we can play to while away the time. I took the mechanics from a party game I learnt and pasted an "Imp" theme on it.

Basically, everyone's an Imp. You're all trying to banish each other back to wherever Imps come from. To banish an opposing Imp, you need to state what the Imp's Real Name is. The last remaining Imp wins.

To participate in the game, PM me your Real Name (can be anything. Be creative, but try to choose a name that is not easily associated to yourself. Eg. if bsmith chose "ASL" as his Real Name, he'd probably be banished in the first round. But on the other hand, someone apart from bsmith could try something sneaky and take "ASL" as his/her Real Name, fooling everyone else into wasting a guess or two)

Once everyone has submitted their Real Names to me, I'll post up a list of players, Real Names (in random order), plus one fake Real Name. Everyone then takes a turn to guess whose name is whose. Unlike Werewolf, this game is played in turns; everyone gets 1 turn to guess, and may not guess again until everyone else has had a turn to guess. The person who correctly matches a player with a Real Name banishes that player and that player is out of the game.

We need 5+ players to make this fun. Just PM me your Real Name and I'll update this post. Any takers?

Imps:
1. bsmith
2. jttm80
3. Stompy
4. annawid
5. redturtle
6. dougadams

Just one more player and we can start! With active players, I think this game will last at most 1 week.

Okay, let's give this a start. I'm too lazy to re-order the sign-up list, so the turn order will be exactly as it is.

Imps (in turn order. Current turn bolded):
1. bsmith
2. jttm80
3. Stompy
4. annawid
5. redturtle
6. dougadams

Real Names (in alphabetical order):
Annawid
Dale
John Doe
Mister X
Moon-beam
Richard Chopp
SpinningTails

First to guess is bsmith. The rest of you can post suggestions and discussions. bsmith, to make life easy for me (solely because I like things that make life easier for me. Lazy, remember?) when you make an official guess, bold your statement, i.e.:

In the name of all that is unholy, I banish TaleSpinner by invoking his real name, Barfmeister!

Good luck!

Do you think it's too obvious that there is an 'Annawid' realname?

Going by the joining order the only people that knew Anna was actually playing would be: annawid, redturtle, dougadams, or the fake name that TaleSpinner put in.

I'd given leave to the earlier joiners to change their Real Names once more people joined up.

But go with whatever theory you want. ;)

Hmm... am I the only one to notice that Talespinner has a weird alphabetical order?

Stompy, are you getting enough sun? You're looking a little Dale to me...
Heh... little punny humor there...

Yeah, yeah, my mistake. I'd started off randomly sorting them, and then figured that an alphabetic order would do just as well. Looks like I didn't alpha-sort the random list properly.

Fixed it already though.

Well I knew my last comment would provoke a response eventually... but did you have to fall for it first up? ;)
