Potty Games - Hangman Only, (Vol. III)

Post  Potteraholic on Tue Mar 29, 2011 5:37 pm

Potty Games - Hangman Only (Vol. II) will reach/reached its end when World Crossing shuts/shut down on April 15, 2011. Until the creation of this new thread, the Potty Games thread normally handled two games: hangman and riddles. With this new thread, the games have been split into two threads, one for each of the two games. "My reasoning behind this is due to some emails asking for splitting the two to avoid a participant having to go through a number of posts to determine the present status of each game." (Kip Carter)

Rules have not changed. Enjoy. ~ Kip Carter

For those of you who are interested- there is another game called Potty Game: Five Words. The rules are simple - each person may contribute five words in each post, and eventually this will create a short story. Click on the link directly below this message if you’d like to find out more about how to play Five Words.

**************************************************************************

**************************************************************************


This thread was originally created by dizzy lizzy so that we Potties may have a place to continue to play hangman and guess riddles dealing with Harry Potter:

Thanks for the opportunity to create a new thread Kip! *dances* The first time I got to create a new thread was the Horcruxes thread after 16th July!

I hope that this thread will be as long lived an well patronised as the last Potty HQ thread. As I pointed out and Lina so nicely summarised in her post, this is a place for us to come and play games and generally hang out with our friends.

In honour of the fact I love playing hangman (As Tazzygirl and Kate well know!), and checking out the riddles, I propose that this new thread be devoted to providing us with the opportunity to play hangman and our riddles.

Enjoy!

Added Edit Requested by Finn:
There is another game that is over on the Harry Potter Lexicon FanFiction Forum (FFF) called Potty Game: Five Words. It is on the FFF because it is a story based on Harry Potter characters, settings, spells, etc. (hence it is fan fiction). The idea to it is that you submit five words in each of your posts, thus creating a long story that many can contribute to in small portions. Please visit this thread and make your contribution to the current story! - Kip 16 April 2006

The Potty HQ thread (now closed) is the official start for both HP Riddles and HP Hangman games. Troels Forchhammer should be credited with starting the riddles there. Anybody can guess a letter or solution to the hangman, or a solution to the riddle, at any time!

On this day, the one before the day the Harry Potter Lexicon Forum on World Crossing is set to close its 'doors' forever, the current Hangman puzzle is being run by Julia. I have posted it here, in white font, as well as Mona's guess, as a backup. The game is still being played over at WX, and all guesses should be made there until it's not possible to do so any longer.

Julia H. - Apr 14, 2011 12:03 am (#2054 of 2055)

Sorry for the delay. Here's a short quote for the short time we have on this site. Perhaps you can guess it without any letters. Enjoy!

"_ _ _ _ _ _ ," / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _.

mona amon - Apr 14, 2011 1:17 am (#2055 of 2055)

May I have an S, Julia?

All right, then Julia.

Okay, this will probably be one of my last posts on the HPLF-WX... it's been a great journey!

I don't know when I will have time to post the new Hangman puzzle... probably not until afterschool today, 3:00 pm NYC time. But I'll try to find a nice long one, in case folks want to start requesting letters, over on the new thread in our new home.

Au revoir!

---------------------------------------


Okay, we're here! Let's play!
