Character Elimination Game Rules/Questions

To avoid the game thread getting cluttered, direct all separate questions, queries or posts here, so that the game thread isn't cluttered with too many comments.

THIS IS THE BEST GAME.

But we play it too hard-and-fast, things get confusing. lololol.

Yeah, a general idea would be to leave a couple of minutes so that it's active but slightly spaced out. And if people have the notify for new posts off, then I'd make sure to put it on.

I've played it before with a rule that you're not allowed to undo both of the person before you's choices?
Revolution: like Christmas come early only with more death
Abaisse Chief/Chef
"Les Amis Fun Package - The Awesome Traits of Each"
"She's basically Enjolras meets Amy Pond"
Sings Stars "way better than Russel Crowe"

You wouldn't be undoing their choices although I might have worded a part of it poorly.

I was suggesting a new rule rather than replying there :)

Sorry that's what I meant. If it was a suggestion then that's the way we're already playing, as in if you mean physically deducting points from what they previously chose,

I'm still confused...

What I'm suggesting is this:

If you do Éponine +1, Marius -1
And I come along next, then I can't do Éponine -1, Marius +1.
That way it keeps things moving and means we don't get stuck in retaliatory patterns.

Until it gets down to the final 2 obviously.

Hmmm...it might be an idea. We're not getting too much of that at the moment, but it could be a plan possibly. I'll leave it a small while and if it becomes a problem then I'll implement it as an official rule.

Also are you aware of any other rules with regards to voting?

My apologies if I've misinterpreted anywhere.

The other rules I've played was that only one post a day (which I wouldn't recommend for us here) and that your selection had to be different to your last post (you could up vote the same one say, but not the same up vote and down vote). Those are the only ones I can remember.

Geronimo - I'm doing the same for Jehan and Feuilly, just with less success :D

No worries, you've been following the rules fine so far. Going for the one is okay. I'm personally switching mine around a bit, but I've gone for Combeferre a good bit for much the same reason as you've been voting Bahorel. If single character voting does get out of hand I may change it at a later stage, but as I say part of the fun here is the tactics of getting a character you want to do well to do as well as possible.

Haa, Em just keeps down-voting Bahorel because she doesn't like that she is him. Ahurrhurr.

Enjolvert, you make me weep.
