As Cruise Director for the Games forum, I'm always trying to come up with new ideas for fun games to play here. However, I know that the general membership is full of great ideas that I would never think of as well. So, I want to put a general "call" out for contributions.

If you have an idea for a game, post it here. Some games do great; others tank. You can never really tell. Give it a shot. It may become the next "Timeline" or even "International Lighthouse Game" (which got to something like 30 installments before it ended, probably because it ran out of lighthouses).

So...have an idea? Post it here! smile

How about a "can you name this lighthouse" game? Or is that too boring?

Like your idea Margret. Where possible, using photos taken by self would make it more interesting, i.e.:

Hey good one.... shall we play on here or go to a new thread?
And shall I give away how I know that this beautiful picture is of the .... no I shan't tell yet ...
It is a great photograph and I like the idea of playing so you have to use your own pictures.

That one sounds really great! It's also a good way to help with visual recognition of lighthouses by sight...kind of like flashcards! smile

Do we have to post pictures in order to participate? I know that one, too, Sandy. Beautiful colors. I think it would be fun to do this even if we can't participate. We can see your pictures and do our own guessing.

If you are going to use images, you need to change the name of the image before you post to have people guess... It is pretty easy to view image and read...

Lets see maybe that's American Shoal?

Well--duhh!!

Try this one. . . .




BTW, Margret emailed me that she found out by right-clicking on picture (who'd a thunk it would be that easy!!), but I don't know how Paul got the whole string. Said it before--we have a number of super sleuths here. wink wink wink

Paul of course is a SAINT ... so he can do all sorts of things behind the scenes.
And I just got a SURPRISE ... :p

So, Greg, do we have rules or guidelines yet? And are you starting a new thread or is this it?

Greg some time ago we did a lighthouse scramble or some such thing. I think I started it and limited it to lights that HL had produced. Since we've got some new folks since then perhaps we could try that one again? And not limit it to HL lighthouses. But I think I'd have the poster at least identify the country. Whoever unscrambles the scrambled lighthouse has to post the next one.

Grace - let me think on rules and such overnight. Will try to get something tommorrow - and I'm tacking a posty note to my computer screen as soon as I log off, so I'll hopefully remember. smile

If you could, hold off on posting any more lights in the "idenifying" game (need to think up a fun name, too), until it gets its own thread tommorrow.

Mombo - I like that idea. I'll think on that one, too. (Adds to posty note...)

BTW...I WOULD like to keep it at about 3-4 games running at once, plus stuff like the Timeline games. So, if you want, you can also email me your idea with the link at the top of this post, and I'll create a bit of a "database" that I can pull from when things get slow around here. smile

Her "I borrowed this image from Lightseeker's 2004 trip to Key West.." picture is gorgeous.

My "clue" was going to be "Unlock sunset."

Looking forward to the next post. . . .

Are you referring to Paul's post, Sandy? That's the view from the balcony of Hemingway's house, I believe. I have a similar shot which I took from there.

Margret,

Not wishing to step on anyone's toes, I'm going to send an email to Greg--he posted something in one of the threads this morning, so he's not out of town. Let's hope the next post will be his.

So sorry....it's midterm time, so I get pretty bogged down until about the end of the month. I may be posting a little less as exams come closer, because I have a LOT of studying to do!

I've written the rules. I just have to get the photo ready after dinner, and Ident-A-Light will begin! smile
