Here are the rules originally posted by Raven:

quote:
The goal is to have participation and not necessarily stump the board. To that end, if you are going to play you have to pick a reasonable quote, you have to give basic year and type data, and most importantly you have to come back at least once a week to declare a winner or give a clue. You can give up to 2 clues and the quote may last up to 21 days after its posted, but then the answer must be revealed. No single quote is left more than 3 weeks.

As with other games, the winner of the quote picks the next one. This is where most games die because the winner never comes back with a new game or no one knows the quote and the poster never comes back with an answer. PLEASE all players have to monitor their quotes or it doesn't work.

So here's certain ground rules. You have to say if its TV or movie.

You have to give a type:
Comedy
Horror
Si-Fi
Action
Fantasy
Drama
Or any combination of the above

If from a movie, you must state decade of release, 70s, 80s, etc.

If from a TV show, you must state current or off air, and if it is not international you must state country, UK only, etc.

If there is no winner after one week the poster must give a hint. If no one still gets it a second hint can be given, but after three weeks we need the answer. The original poster than picks another one within 3 days. No one can command the board for more than 3 quotes in a row. We want people to be able to play.

If the quote gets abandoned, I will stop it and throw out another one, but I'm not moderating so I hope that the game will get started and keep going on its own. As I said, if you can think of better guidelines please post them.


I think we're pretty lenient about posting clues, though (decade, genre) unless someone asks or enough players are stumped.

That being said, here's an appropriate quote to start the next round:


Patron: "Do you ever have deja vu, Mrs. Lancaster?"
Waitress: "I don't think so, but I could check with the kitchen. "

New quote:

"I need a horse!"
"We don't have horses. Just dogs, cats, birds..."
"Then give me one of those large enough to ride."

Sounds like the sort of line the Prince would have come out with in 'Enchanted' once he reached our World.

Okay, here's one from a fairly popular film from 5-10 years ago:

"Take car. Go to Mum's. Kill Phil - "Sorry." - grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over. How's that for a slice of fried gold?"

He means it is a Fred Astaire film, which does not have Ginger Rogers as his co star.

A clue for the second word of a two word title would be comeplete the following song title from the Wizard of Oz: "Somewhere over the ......."
