      Like comparing the pre-wolf portion or just the opening scene? Previous eliminations have included best episode for the different writers and then put those against each other. I wondered about doing a character elimination that omitted the main characters because they always win. I'm open to any ideas.

      (ps. This is unrelated, but how do you start a poll on this forum? I've never been able to.)
      When you go to post a new thread, after the main section where you put the title and 'message' of the opening post there is an 'additional options' section. Within this there is a checkbox for 'post a poll' with a max of 20 options it'll then get you to specify.

        Oh, I was thinking either like the prologue that comes before the credits, or the first scene of the episode (immediately after the credits). So, for example, a brief summary of each prologue. Or maybe the ending of each prologue/ the ending of each opening scene? (Comparing them and voting for the best one, I don't know.) But writers' best episodes or character elimination sounds great too!

        Thanks, yes, that's just what I've tried in the past. For some reason, it doesn't work. I put in the main title of the thread, add in a line in the 'message' in the opening post, checkbox the 'post a poll' and choose the number of options, but when I preview it still no options show up. It's a mystery.

        • You can vote SpuffyGlitz and conclude the game for us. Or SoS if you're around. Or flow, or indeed anyone else of course apart from myself, TTB and GoSpuffy, as we were the last three voters.

          I'm up for any of them, but writing a summary of scenes takes a while to set up.

          I have this list (spoilered below for space) which I drew together years ago when Sky was active on the board and was talking about doing an entrance/exit elimination game. I can't honestly remember the parameters of who I included but it could be a starting point. I'm not sure the original idea of tying it to entrance and exit works so well as the characters that are around the longest are always more likely to be kept. But we could shave the bigger names out (if we can agree on who the core ones to eliminate are!) and do it on all the other characters. Or just ignore the entrance/exit aspect and do it just as a plain supporting characters elimination game, which would probably work better but might also need some characters adding in (I haven't checked how extensive the list is). We also don't have to mix up BtVS/AtS because I appreciate not everyone playing the games has seen all of both shows yet. But anyway, this could be a starting point for another game if we can work out exactly what it would be. Then perhaps, whilst that one is playing, the legwork of producing the summaries for doing a prologue or first scene game can be happening.

          Thanks, yes, that's just what I've tried in the past. For some reason, it doesn't work. I put in the main title of the thread, add in a line in the 'message' in the opening post, checkbox the 'post a poll' and choose the number of options, but when I preview it still no options show up. It's a mystery.
          Strangely, I think you might have to go to the point of 'submitting' the thread before it asks you what your polling options are. I can't remember from when I've done it in the past, but that might be the case.

            • As far as games go, I'm up for anything, although I'd rather
              one that does not involve AtS, as I have not watched it
              in so long—the major minor characters I remember, and some
              one-shot stand-outs, such as Billy—but beyond that, I'd be lost,
              would just vote them down out of ignorance...

              However, if everyone else is into doing both shows, I could always
              go to the Buffy wiki to jog my memory...

              I do love the Prologue or Opening Scene idea, but realize it would
              take time, so the other would be lovely in the interim....

              So really—

              As you will—

              • And we're done.

                Well it is no great surprise that we differed greatly in the final order of the 'top' eps from the last time an endings game ran as we only chose one of the same episodes as a season winner along the way. But for interest, the last time S1: The Puppet Show came 7th, S3: The Prom took 6th, S2: Lie to Me was 5th, S4: Doomed came 4th, S7: Showtime was 3rd, S5: OOMM 2nd and 1st was taken by S6: Smashed. And it Smashed was the only winner that matched in the individual rounds and made it to 2nd overall in ours. I like that there was plenty of difference along the way. It just goes to show with some time and different people these things can be interesting to rerun.

                Now we've just got to work out what we're playing next.

                EDIT: Totally happy to discount AtS for those who know it less.

                • I'd prefer to discount AtS for the time being too, if possible, but will go along with the majority. As for the Prologue or Opening scene thing, it doesn't have to be a summary of the entire scene, I was thinking it could just be the last line/ or the last moment, like we've been playing so far in this elimination game.

                  But I also think the character elimination idea sounds great too, so I'm game for anything.

                    I've no problem with making a game just BtVS. And a game that includes character entrances and exits would also be spoiler ridden for those who haven't watched AtS too, so on reflection that's a terrible idea. To keep it in the mix of suggestions, I've just whipped through the character list I posted before and made it just BtVS (below).

                    I really like the idea of going with the Prologue or Opening scene and agree it could just be a quick sentence summary of the literal last scene, with a last line given if there was one in the final scene, as we had here. It still took quite a while to go through every episode and pull that together though. I don't mind doing it again for the new game but it would have to be a little background project I was fitting in doing odd ones a day for a while to get through them all. So unless someone else has more free time to chuck at setting it up, it might be easier to agree a supporting character list and run that whilst the episode prologue or opening scene (whichever we choose) is put together. Or something entirely different, I really don't mind I just like the ease of dropping into the elimination games.

                    • Oh, the character elimination sounds great, I've just looked at the list! I'd love to play this!

                      As for the prologue/ opening scene idea, it would take time to prepare the whole 7 seasons of it and as you did the last one for this elimination game, I think you could do with a break I'd be happy to do it, but may not be able to produce it now, so in the meantime it'll be fun to play the character game. Plus it's nice to know there's another game to look fwd to after it ends!

                      • If you're happy to put the prologue/opening scene one together that would be great, thanks.

                        There are about 106 characters in the list. I'll try to find some time later to have a bit of a look over to see if I think I missed any support characters that should be on there. The other things to decide then is which count as main characters to take out. Clearly the core four should be taken out (Buffy, Giles, Xander and Willow), but I'd also argue the Scourge (Spike, Angel, Dru & Darla) and the big bads too (The Master, The Mayor, Faith, Adam, Glory, The First and possibly Warren). I'm not sure because I think some of those big bads, The First and Adam especially, probably don't benefit from being 'bigger' characters to a lot of fans.

                        • So many thanks, Stoney



                          I agree that the Core Four and the Scourge should
                          be omitted: Spike would cleary win, with Dru coming in
                          near the top, obscuring the virtues of the smaller characters...

                          I pretty much think the same about the Big Bads: Faith,
                          especially, is so large and compelling a character that she
                          would do the same; the Master and the Mayor very likely
                          would as well... As you note, this would not be true
                          for the duller ones, such as Adam and probably The First,
                          but losing them might be worth it to keep the focus
                          on the truly smaller characters:

                          A game about them could provoke quite interesting discussions...

                          But I'd love to hear the thoughts of others, as well...

                          • I also think it might be interesting to keep them in rounds based on chunks taken from them listed alphabetically like they are because it just mixes them up rather than being split into seasons. There's an argument for discounting Wishverse Willow and Xander perhaps too I think.

                            Comment


                            • I like the alphabetical arrangements:

                              That would keep us from pitting the characters
                              against each other in terms of the season...

                              And yes, I would vote for removing all the Core
                              Four's Alters... They, too, would threaten to
                              steal from others all attention, all possible love...

                              Part of what I like about this game is the attention
                              it would draw to the details, what can slip by in
                              memory or even familiar re-watching...

                              • Just a heads up: In case anyone would like to start playing the Prologue elimination game, the first three seasons are ready now. So we can jump into playing right away if you want. The remaining seasons won't take long.
