The location game

#1 Post by Orodaran » 05 Aug 2009 21:43

Ok, here's a game I thought out of my ass right now, and that I never saw in any board. Let's see how long can it go before it already ends :P

The idea behind the game is this: someone says the town he lives in (for small towns it's ok to give the most famous town near to it), and if someone has been in that town, he/she can reply saying his/her location. For example, one says he is from Paris, and one that has visited Paris posts saying he comes from Berlin; another one that visited Berlin posts, and says he's from London, and someone that has been in London can post after, and so on...

Let's see if it ends after 3 replies or it's something that goes on, after all we people met each other quite some times so maybe there's a way to make it go on 8)

I start, I live in Milan (basically)... anyone that has visited Milan can post after and say the town he/she comes from, so that someone that has been in that town can post after and so on!!!
"There's a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny's lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I've always been a fool"
~~~~~~~~~~~~
A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer

Hm, I've been in Alkmaar quite a few times. (And in Heerhugowaard, too.) ;)

Myself, I live in Amsterdam.
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.

I have, but not in Seattle or anywhere near the West Coast of the US.

Yupp you might have !
I thought the location game, when i saw the thread title, would be about posting a picyure of a landmark and have somebody guess which place it is located or symbolic of...

I'm from Europe, but I'm in the USA right now, still, I don't think I'll have time to go to Denver, sorry. :)

Either way, I'm from Belgrade, Serbia, so we would most likely be in the same situation as now. :D
