Safe Words XX: #2 Is #1 - The Game Begins
« on: August 08, 2022, 10:08:06 PM »
The contestants are set, so let's play Safe Words!

As usual, players will be notified when it's their turn via forum PM, and will have 48 hours to make their selection. I have selected the order randomly, so if you don't like where you're positioned take it up with random.org.


1. Bungle4
2. Mop it up
3. MASB
4. Stratos
5. BeautifulShy
6. TOPHATANT123
7. Luigi Dude
8. nickmitch
9. Order.RSS
10. Khushrenada


Khushrenada has selected the first bomb word, so now we're ready to play.

Bungle4, which of these second bananas was the real hero of their story?

Luigi
Garfunkel
Oates
Robin
Andy Richter
Milhouse
George Costanza
Tails
The Buffalo Bills
Spock

*gasp*

I finally got to choose a bomb word?! It's a Safe Words miracle! Now it just better not come back on me....

(As a further aside, I have to say that Insanolord is making a strong case for being number 2 with these choices here although there are still a few duds that prove second isn't the best after all.)

If Bungle doesn't show up and dies from inactivity, that still counts as a bomb word snipe for me. (Because he is automatically assigned my bomb word choice.) It'll be the best bomb word choice to ever open a game. My bomb skills are amazing!

Sorry for the delay. I was off the grid the past week. If I am not too late then I will pick Andy Richter

Unlike Andy's sitcoms, you did not bomb. Mop it up,  the choice is yours.

Hello. My name is Watson. Dr. John H. Watson. The "H" stands for Hamish! Having had experience being Sherlock Holmes's right-hand man on three separate continents, I think I am a good judge of quality #2s. And since I've taken the lead on some imvestigations for Holmes, I think I can also spot those #2s who have the quality of a top banana. And nothing stays top fruit to me like Garfunkel. All I Know is that he's taken me through Bridges Over Troubled Water many a time!

Been busy with many fandoms  this past week and am thankful I checked the forum before bed.  Looks like I am up next after Insanolord reveals the results. 

Hmm the Lakers have so many co stars in their history and I think I will go with those for the first few rounds and then go into the different fandoms I have been a part of as role play.  Hopefully I stick around and if not then I will keep the role play going just to keep the game even more fun.


Lets see what happens with this Stratos Safe Word!
Maxi is dead. I killed him and took his posts and changed genders.
Alexis, she/her/Miss

Allow me to influence that choice by dropping the hint that the bomb word I selected... has at least one vowel in it.

Are you sweating...?

Good to see that Holmes's methods saw me through. I wonder what happened to Paul Simon. Never heard much from him after he split from the angelic voice of Art Garfunkel.

There may be some merit in BeautifulShy's Lakers strategy. I remember when Holmes and I helped Professor Naismith, the inventor of Basket Ball, on a particularly troublesome case. I called it "The Case of the The Missing Free-Throws". It involved a player named Shakeel O'Neal. Alas, it remains unpublished as there was no resolution. It was beyond even Holmes's powers of deduction.

Lol thats no help at all.

Because of that fake hint I am going to have 2000 Kobe go off and hit clutch shots after clutch shots versus the Pacers in game 4.

It is simply ilogical what Kobe is going to do to you Khushrenada.  That is why Kobe and Spock  is going to team up and say his play is not logical.

A very logical choice. BeautifulShy is safe. We're halfway through the order and nobody's chosen the bomb yet. Getting nervous, Khush? Now it's time for TOPHATANT123 to choose.

The answer is obvious, it's a Luigi.  Super Mario Bros 2 Japan, or Lost Levels as it's known to the rest of the world is the hardest Mario platformer, but Luigi makes it much more beatable.  Many of the hardest jumps that require you to be almost pixel perfect as Mario, Luigi can do with more room for error.

So when playing Lost Levels, Luigi is the true hero of that game.

We're halfway through the order and nobody's chosen the bomb yet. Getting nervous, Khush?

You and I both know I had a specific target in mind when I selected my bomb word and that player still has yet to select. I won't be worried unless we reach that point and that player doesn't select the bomb word.
