You forgot

Postby Lawrencelot » Wed Apr 29, 2015 11:46 am UTC

In this game we try to build a house together, one action at a time. However, every time someone posts an action, the next poster has to think of something they forgot. Example:

Player A:
I build a brick wall.

Player B:
You forgot to buy bricks.
I go to the store to buy bricks.

Player C:
You forgot...

The rule is: if you can't think of something the previous poster forgot in 5 seconds after reading the post, the action succeeds! (say something like 'success'). Then you still post your own action. And if you think it's more fun that the action succeeds, you can also choose to do this.

Note that your action does not need to have something to do with the 'you forgot' part of your post (i.e. you can say 'you forgot to buy bricks' and then 'I hire an architect').

I'll start.

I build a roof.

You forgot to remove the trees first!

I cut down the trees with this chainsaw I have in my hand right here, that's full of gas and has a nice sharp chain on it.

You forgot how much the gear cost.

I remind you how much money you need (and I roll in a nice cushion to cover my embezzlement activities).

You forgot to check your credit history first.

You forgot the lunch you were going to give the worker in the middle of the shift.

Luckily, I have the pizzahut number, so let's call and order a large one.

You almost forgot to give him the keys, but that wouldn't have made sense given that you just reminded him he forgot his, so Success!

I tell Neil how to meet up with PTGFlyer.
