That could be fun. We need to come up with game play rules or guidelines that set who is asking and who is answering. We could try doing it so we have a member that is disguised and you have to figure out who it is.

That's possible if the host is asking questions from a home game. I don't have any games like that with me... they didn't fit in the suitcase. :wah:


I like that idea...I guessed all three people on the dating game this last go around...I knew one of the contestants but not the # she was...but figured it out quickly on my own! That could be fun!

You could call it "Mystery Man" and limit the number of clues to either 5 or 10 maybe....

Some women might have an issue with the "man" in the title and I was thinking that Mystery Man/Woman....is just too long, then I thought "Mystery Member"...meaning Forum garden Member...but then thought....ummm well that sounds a little dirty...

How about Mystery Gardener???

I'll set up another mystery account like the contestants for the Dating Game and then we just start asking questions when I announce we have a new Mystery Gardener. I'll change the password between games.

OK. The account is set up.

PM me if you want to be the first mystery gardener and I'll start the round 1 thread. We won't run a commentary thread for these as all the comments go towards figuring out who it is.

There should be limits like "yes" or "no" questions so you can't ask "what is your normal username" or something.

otoh, how the person answers the question is revealing about their personality. obviously they wouldn't have to answer a question directly.

I think it would be better to go for seven days. That way we don't need to co-ordinate who is guessing. If Nomad got in there we'd be screwed.

So we have seven days to figure it out. Yes?

I like doing it that way so the person who came up with the idea gets the credit. WW has a close second for coming up with the name.

Maybe we should make it One guess per day. That way someone wont just keep posting guesses all day til they get it.

I agree, I think the questions are fun...and in a way feel bad for guessing already...hope I'm wrong!!

Hmmmm.

I'll add in minks' comment

May I suggest you let this go for a week and at the end of the week post who got the guess right the quickest, it would be more fun that way.


what do you think?

I think that she could have chosen not to answer the question as it wasn't a yes or no.

that rule exists to give the MG some room for keeping giveaway clues out too fast.

Not a bad idea but I can't be sure I can watch closely enough to delete any extra questions from members so we have to go on self discipline and I could add it to the rules at the top of each new game. I'm reposting the rules each time to prevent confusion.

eta: Maybe each member could ask only one question per day.

I was just thinking that we should add a rule that if you make a guess and you're wrong you can't guess anymore. Otherwise people could just start guessing names until they get it.

I'm adding that you can't ask letters in the person's username as well, on the grounds that it becomes another game show if we do that.
