welcome to a very poorly thought out game! In all seriousness, this is a pretty simple game.if any issues pop up that need clarification or added rules, PM me, and i will add them. -there will be a "lottery master" at the start of every round. -the lottery master will decide a fandom and a submission period. -the lottery master will then mentally note his/her top 3 characters of that fandom. -during the submission period, people may post their top 3 characters, or what they believe the top three favorites are of the lottery master. -once the submission period is over, the lottery master will then post their top three, and whoever has the most correct,becomes the next lottery master. (position and name on the list count as two separate points.) example:star wars fandom Lottery Master: 1.Obi-wan 2.Mace Windu 3.Yoda Player One: 1.Qui-gon 2.Jar Jar 3.Obi-wan SCORE:one point. this player got one name, but in the wrong position. Player two: 1.Commander Cody 2.Mace Windu 3.Vader SCORE:two points. this player got both position on the list and name. again, if anything else needs clarification, PM me, and i will add it. also suggestions on how to improve the game would be so helpful. anyway, I'll kick it off with something simple. Bionicle 2016. just to test this out, we'll give it a day.
(For more information on shibboleths, see this Wikipedia article.) Basically, a shibboleth is like a secret password that you can use to quickly identify if someone is a member of an exclusive group (in this case, the Bionicle fandom). My question for you is: if you could make up a shibboleth for the Bionicle fandom, what would it be? Example: Shibboleth: Trust in the mask... Response: Let it be your guide. Then you know that anyone who responds with anything other than "let it be your guide" is clearly not a Bionicle fan and probably has no opinion on whether you should get Skull Basher or Skull Warrior. Just curious for what people would come up with. **Bonus points for making it both something you can inconspicuously slip into conversation, as well as something that's easily recognizable.**
The return of BIONICLE has rekindled a lot of interest among fans, even among those whose interest had started to wane. However, many of us are older than we were, and I understand there's something of a stigma attached to high school or college age people obsessing over a LEGO toyline. BIONICLE isn't a particularly acceptable or "mainstream" fandom, unlike, say, Doctor Who, or Avatar: The Last Airbender. That leads me to hypothesize that many of its fans conceal their interests during everyday life. Now, anyone on BZPower clearly has at least some interest in BIONICLE. But outside of the Internet, how public are you about being a BIONICLE fan? I'm interested to see how secretive the community is as a whole.
