The point of this Forum Section

Some members are a little iffy on what should go in the Games & Humor forum section so.

Trivial games like "the person above you game" should be placed in this forum.

Humor of all kinds also belongs here, like the "Superman has a problem with kinky sex" thread.

What does not belong here would be things like video games, board games. Or humor coming directly out of comic books or discussion of books.

Boardgames and the like would go in the Action Figure and Toys section as could video games, though those could also be posted in the General Forum Section.

also any posts in this Forum Section do not count towards your post count.

Hope that helps!

  • So, ANY vehicle of some kind would suffice? (I hate that last rule)

      No, any robot (essentially any self-controlling machine) of some kind would suffice. A vehicle only counts if it operates itself.

      • Well, it's up to A-Train to count it in.

            Well, yeah. I was just explaining the stipulation as you had stated it.

            • Having to pick something "robotic" does throw an interesting twist into the mix. Let me ponder that, but the other three are definite.
              I LOVE conspiracy theorists. They are like human versions of the cymbal clapping, dancing monkeys. No one takes them all that seriously and they get bored with them after about 10 minutes.

              • Now I'm curious if there exists a robotic animal from an anime from the 80's or 90's. (I'm assuming the Voltron lions wouldn't count, since they weren't self-operating.)

                    Well there ya' go. Pick something from there, and the rest of your team can be whatever you want!

                    And since Caleb already said "You're welcome" I guess I don't even have to thank him.

                      • Should I clarify tv cartoons only? I feel like animated movies may add a bit too much....

                          I would. I suppose you should also clarify (if you care) what kinds of animation are allowed, 2D, 3D, stop motion, etc.

                          I'd guess that stop motion wouldn't be allowed, since it doesn't usually fall under the name "cartoon", and there are only a few shows anybody would likely use characters from even if it were allowed (I know I'd be tempted to pick Gumby if it were an option), but if you don't want 3D computer animated characters, you better state that up front or I bet some will show up.

                          You might want to specify that you can't have two team members from the same show, unless you figure that the lameness of casting your whole team (or even a large chunk of it) from the same show (without a darn convincing reason) would likely be penalty enough come voting time if anybody tried it.

                          • I say give people the space, especially considering most people know anime only through anime movies.

                              I suppose. I think most people know at least a few anime series.

                              Personally, I like the idea of it being an animated TV show draft. That was kind of the thing that attracted me to the idea, anyway, revisiting all those TV show memories.

                              If it's just general animation, I guess that's cool too (though if so, I REALLY want it to be open to ALL kinds of animation. Once you open up movies, the stop motion animation choices get pretty interesting). It just won't be what I thought the idea was.

                              Nothing wrong with that, though.

                              • I think I'm gonna limit it to just TV. There are a wealth of properties to choose from even in the world of anime. I am contemplating the stop motion as that would allow you to pick shows like Davey & Goliath or Thunderbirds.
