Hi everyone!

I'm back with a new game: Runner-Up! Let's hope I can actually finish moderating a Mish Mash game this time :oops:

So how does Runner-Up work?
- The game is played with 3-6 players. I'll just see what I can get.
- The game consists of 5 'stages'. In these stages, I will give each player five playing cards that have a number on them, ranging from -4 to +5. These cards will be played in five 'rounds'.
- During each round, each player picks a card and decides who is going to use that card. This is done by PM'ing me one of your cards and the player of your choice. The last card in each stage is for yourself. In the other rounds, you can select any player to use your chosen card, also yourself! That means that you can get all the cards in a round or no cards at all.
- So what do you need to do? Well, when all rounds have been played in a stage, whoever is in 'second place' - that is the player who has the second most points - gets 'points'. The number of points that player gets is the number that he finished on in the stage. All the other players get zero points.

You win the game when you have the second most 'points' after the five stages. In other words: be the runner-up! Both in the individual stages and in the overall standings.

Sign up for this game now. Sign-ups will end two days after 3 players have signed up, which is the minimum required, or when 6 players have signed up for the game.

So it's possible to 'win' a round by being second, but getting negative points?

Yup! If you are in second place and standing on a negative score, like -1, then you get -1 points.
And that can be a good thing. Here's an example:
You get second place in the first stage. Your score is -1. You get -1 points.
That means that you have -1 points and everyone else has 0 points. Everyone else is in first place with 0 points, so you are now in second place and the provisional winner at that point.

Alright. No one else signed up for this, so we will play this game with four players!

I will send each of you participants your five playing cards for the first round shortly, and decide what card you'd like to play and who will play it.

Also, just to make it clear: Talking about what card you are picking is not desirable. I don't say it's disallowed, but I prefer it doesn't happen.

Have fun everyone!

I have sent PM's to all of you, with your five playing cards for the first stage in them. That means you should have a PM in your inbox saying so.

For Stage One, Round One, send a reply to that PM in which you tell me what card you will pick and who will use it.

Again, have a fun time everyone! ;)

Gonna look for a replacement of mallowgeno because of what happened in another game.

Why is mallow being replaced? I like playing with him.

If you are kicking players out because of personal issues with him, then I don't wanna play this anymore.

Personal issues were involved but it isn't limited to them. It resulted in unfair, biased moderation actions from his side and I do not wish him to play in a game I moderate because of what he did there.
This way I want to prevent this needle to continue. That's why I am basically 'modkilling' him, in this case replacing him. I hope this is okay with you but I do not want him here because of what happened there. I simply don't want him to continue the nasty things he's been doing to me.
