This shouldn't be a problem, BillieMac's last post in the previous round was at 2:50 am Singapore time, so it would be quite a while if everyone had to wait for me to wake up and log on to start the next round. Thanks Jane!

Oh, I see my mistake, Hermione P. The way JaneMarple9 wrote her reply made me think she was the game master for that round- I forgot it was you.

So who's next, Evreka?

RiverSpirit stumbles in...chair crashes to the ground...(sorry!)

It seems like there might be a tiny bit of confusion about how this game works.  :ron: Just so that everyone is on the same chair, oops... page, here is a more detailed explanation....

This is a light-hearted, frivolous little game, where the point is to see which characters are our collective favourites among any bunch of them. This has nothing to do with knowledge of any kind, just with picking your favourite.    :harryronbb:

Here’s how it works….

The List Maker puts together a reasonable length list of characters from HP, (3 - 10 of them), and a collection of chairs that is one less than the amount of characters listed. Then it is up to the rest of us to come in, once per (sub) round (see below) and post the name of the character we are most eager to get down on a chair. There is no change in List Maker  during the round. (Should the List Maker be absent for an extended amount of time it will be the decision of the Moderators to change the List Maker.)

Whether you pick your favourite from that list or the one you most love to hate or some random one is entirely up to you.    Once you have seated a character you must wait for the List Maker to come back and post again, before you can seat any more. You can only seat one character at a time. Or, in other words, you can only seat one character between two posts from the List Maker. The List Maker, themselves, cannot seat any characters from their own list. They just move the game along.

The round ends when all characters but one are seated. The List Maker then comes back, declares which character lost in this particular round, and sets up the next round with the remaining characters and one chair less.

Depending on how many people participate in this game and how many characters are on the list, the List Maker may also post the current standing (sitting  :fredgeorge:) during a round on how many (and which) characters are already seated and which remains. Each such post marks the end of a sub round. Only the List Maker can do this.  (The reason for this is to make sure that we all decide together, which characters are seated. Otherwise one or two persons can seat the entire list, by just creating a sub round divider with every other post they make.)


Any round can consist of zero or more sub rounds, but the List Maker should try to check the thread now and then to keep the game moving, so we don't run out of players needed to get all characters but the last seated. That said, the game might still move a bit slowly, to give more members the opportunity to vote for their favourites.

When only two characters remain, the first seated character wins the Musical Chair Game, the List Maker posts the order in which the characters were eliminated, and the poster who seated the last character becomes the new List Maker.


I hope this clears up any questions...I'll just straighten up these chairs and let the game continue........

Have fun :flower:
