    Who's up for a game? I originally started this thread in the Initiation Forum, but this is obviously the best forum for it, so I'm moving it here.

    Here's how it works.

    Using Google or Yahoo images, you lay out pictures that form the title of a movie. First one to correctly guess the name of the movie gets to choose the next movie to be guessed and post the pics for that flick, and on it goes.

    Right clicking the pics to check their file names is bad form, mmkay? You're only cheating yourself. Think of the children! :)

    Also, if you take a guess at the flick that you're pretty sure is right and you don't get a prompt confirmation of the correctness of your guess (within an hour of your guess let's say), then feel free to proceed to post your own riddle without waiting for verification of the correctness of your guess by the original poster. This will help keep things moving along.

    Similarly, if a picture riddle is up and unsolved for oh, let's say one hour, or if someone guesses correctly and fails to post a new riddle within an hour, then the board is open for anyone to step in and post a new riddle.

    Also, if anyone has rules questions or suggestions, let's hear them!

    Here's an easy and then what I think is a harder example of possible puzzles to get things rolling,

    Puzzle #1:

    Obviously, the clues could be much more obscure, like in this next puzzle:

    Have fun!

    That is indeed the first word in the title of the movie represented by puzzle 1. Nicely done. :) What about the rest of the title?

    Circle gets the square. :bigthumb:

    Thanks for taking the shot. Clearly, this game has no play on this forum, but, oh well. :dunno: It was worth a shot. I'll let it die a natural death, but before I do, any idea about the second one? It's harder.

    Thanks for taking a shot, but no, that's not the name of the flick. I will give a hint though: There is something very unusual about that photograph and that unusual thing is an important clue to the name of the movie.

    Good guess, but it's harder than that I'm afraid. If someone can figure out what is unusual about the picture, everything should fall into place.

    The sky being pink is not unusual.

    No. It is New York. The Empire State Building is in the pic.

    Here is what is unusual about that pic. It was taken during the 2003 blackout.

    Great guess, but think again what the pic is of. You got the genre right.

    Heh. All right, for those two or three people who are curious, the answer was :drumroll:

    [​IMG]

    Dark City is a pretty cool sci-fi noir flick that was, no doubt, one of the inspirations for the original Matrix movie.

    In the puzzle, the pink sky was a red herring. It would help if you recognize the Empire State Building and realize that it was NY, because that is most definitely a city that never sleeps. Then, you had to realize that the unusual thing about the picture is that there are no freaking lights in the buildings. At the time of day that the pic was taken, the buildings would all be lit up like Christmas trees. Thus, the city was dark.

    If anyone else wants to take a shot at crafting a puzzle, go for it. Otherwise, I'll let this die a natural death.
