Phew, well it looks like now Black Friday’s over the site’s speedy again.
Anyway, some dates for your diary. The next Schlag den Star is set for 10th December, join us for that, but more pertinent today is that there’s going to be Bother’s Bar Game Night 5: The Festive Special provisionally in the diary for the following week (that’s the 17th December).
I’m not looking for contestants yet, I will do that nearer the time. However we have plans, and some of those plans involve a little bit of prep. Therefore I’m looking for Christmas and New Year themed Quiplash and Drawful prompts.
A good Quiplash prompt is something open-ended that gives people scope to respond in an amusing or witty way. For example: “Something it would be bad luck to bite into in an Xmas pudding”.
A good Drawful prompt is something faintly ridiculous, surreal, or open to interpretation that someone will have to make an attempt at drawing. “Santa and a christmas tree having a fight” is something off the top of my head.
Submit as many as you like, I probably won’t use more than a handful from any one person to get a wide range of ideas for the night, and of course I will release the codes afterwards so you can play at home if that is your wont. We are grown ups, you’re not expected to keep it clean but you are expected to have an idea where the line is.
They don’t HAVE to be Christmas and New Year related (and they certainly don’t have to be gameshow related) but it’s more likely to get used if they are. And if you want to be part of the panel you can still submit, it’s your own fault if you end up getting a difficult prompt.
Thanks and good luck!
