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!

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!

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

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.

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.

Clearly, too much reliance was placed on the old man's money. It can cause so much trouble among the aristocratic class in our country. That's why second son's are often sent away. Remittance men is the term used. They're sent enough money to keep them up, but only if they stay far away from the manorial estate.

They often find their way to the American West, where I'm told they get involved in such varied activities as gold mining and dance hall girls. Quite tawdry, really. But having had experience with the ladies in many a foreign country, I could see myself falling into such ways were I a younger man. That would hardly befit an English doctor with a thriving practice in the Paddington District!

When Insanolord first sent me a pm to select the bomb word, he hadn't posted this thread yet so I didn't know what the rotation was. I thought since I was selecting and the first one to sign-up that maybe Order.RSS would be the first to choose a safe word and I thought I'd try Oates as something he might pick on a lark. When the thread was posted, I found out that he would actually be the last to select a safe word that round. That's why I made the post that I wouldn't be worried until the person I named in my pm (Order.RSS) had selected and successfully chosen a safe word... since that would mean only the bomb would have been left for me.

Every gentleman of taste knows that Andy Richter is but a poor man's Max Weinberg!

Recently, a fellow countryman of mine, Sir Gregory James Leahy, KG, GCVO, etc. , etc., put me onto a new sport from America. He called it football. At first, I thought he meant soccer. Nothing like a manly game of assocation football, to use the full term! But what he described is more like rugby. More violent though as it seems every other game a player dies or gets permanently maimed. They'll have to cut down on that if they want to appeal to the ladies in the stands! Even the gayest ladies hat can't overcome the gloom of the grave.

Sir Gregory said the team I should follow is the Bills of Buffalo. I was there in the city, briefly, years ago. I remarked then on the delicious way they had of cooking chicken wings. Sir Gregory said they can't miss this year, so I'll probably make some unjudicious wagers. A Buffalo Bills fan am I!

I thought since I was selecting and the first one to sign-up that maybe Order.RSS would be the first to choose a safe word and I thought I'd try Oates as something he might pick on a lark. When the thread was posted, I found out that he would actually be the last to select a safe word that round. That's why I made the post that I wouldn't be worried until the person I named in my pm (Order.RSS) had selected and successfully chosen a safe word... since that would mean only the bomb would have been left for me.

A likely story!

Yes, I’ve been a little distracted by a family get together this weekend and I was hoping he’d show up, but he’s well past the limit now so Stratos is eliminated for inactivity and blown up by Robin. Khush’s bomb word choice goes to waste, and now to get the new choice.

I didn't want to say anything Stratos but when the time went into the  60 hour mark I had to say something.

lol that would be an interesting mechanic but it would be chaos with folks going out of turn and picking all the different words only to leave a few words so that the other players would land on the bomb word.

Clearly someone has not been listening to Greg Leahy on RFN all these years if you think the Bills are reliable. They may be one of the favorites in the real NFL this season but in Safe Words they've got J.P. Losman at QB instead of Josh Allen.

Mop it up is eliminated. Which means Khush picks the bomb word again!

I quite agree with Khushrenada, my local chimney sweep, that Commander Riker is the best of the number twos. Besides myself, of course! I should like to meet this cultivated and exciting fellow. Whether it be in 1890s Victorian England or a 25th century alien world, I know Riker and myself would be a positive magnet for all women of discerning taste! What merry adventures we would have!

Meanwhile, I'm sure my friend Sherlock Holmes could occupy his time in deep and stimulating conversation with Mister Spock. Riker and my good self will have to content ourselves with lounging on the beach sipping Mai Tais with beautiful women. I know which pair had the better of that bargain!

Congrats on making it to the Final Four everyone still in the game! I trust you'll do the right thing and quickly select my bomb words to let me get the back-to-back win I denied Insanolord last game...

Round 1 - Khushrenada selects the bomb word
Round 2 - Luigi Dude selects the bomb word
Round 3 - Khushrenada selects the bomb word
Round 4 - MASB selects the bomb word
Round 5 - TOPHATANT123 selects the bomb word
Round 6 - Khushrenada selects the bomb word
Round 7 - Khushrenada selects the bomb word


The power! Both Luigi Dude and MASB have been eliminated which just leaves TOPHATANT123 that I must also punish for interrupting my reign of bomb word selections by trying to put forth some effort to win....

Also, can I just say that I love how Spock ended up getting completely overshadowed by Riker in this game. Almost feels like Riker was the actual choice and not Spock. I guess Spock really is a number two after all since Riker has shown himself in this game to truly hold the title of Number One.
