Safe Words XX: #2 Is #1 - Sign Up Thread
« on: July 29, 2022, 09:51:48 PM »
Having played Safe Words on these forums over the years, one of the key things I've learned is that being second is as good as, or in many cases even better than finishing first. That inspired me to host the game for the first time with a simple theme of celebrating the true heroes in our world, the sidekicks and runners up who make everything possible.

Sign ups are open now, and if we can get enough people I intend to start the game Monday, August 8.

Wowzers! This was totally unexpected but quite welcome. I suppose I can fit in playing a game of Safe Words with the gaming fest I intend to dive into for Backlaugust. Plus, I always want to support anyone who is willing to take on the hosting duties for a Safe Words game. I'm in.

(Although, it feels strange to imagine a scenario now in which I could be the player being eliminated while Insanolord could be the host laughing at my downfall. That dynamic seems wrong. I guess the only thing to do is win a second game in a row and thwart Insanolord that way. ;) )

Insanolord, you are destined to be the second best host ever. After me of course  8). I would be honored to play.

Oh, did I miss a discussion on this somewhere? I didn't think we had decided who was going to host the next one. I was hoping to see a Khushrenada vs Insanolord rematch as Khushrenada goes for back-to-back wins, but perhaps some other time.

If this is what's happening then you can count me in.

You did miss a discussion. Insanolord just surprised everyone by launching this game. He had kept his hosting intentions secret as I don't recall him ever saying before that was thinking of hosting a game. Very sneaky. But since no one had really claimed that they would host the next game (Mop it up came the closest but it wasn't really "official"), the gig was open and Insanolord just took the initiative to host one. I applaud his sudden enthusiasm for doing so.

Yeah, it had just been a little while since we had one and I didn't think anyone had established a plan for what was next. I just came up with the theme and thought it would be a good way to liven up the forums.

I was waiting on a new Mafia game but this works too as something low stress and not a huge time commentment.

In.
Maxi is dead. I killed him and took his posts and changed genders.

I feel like we're still missing a few. Have you sent messages to people on both the forums and on Discord?

We've got 10 now and that's close to usual. Last two games we had 11 so the only big regular we missing at the moment is ShyGuy who was in the last two games.

I sent ShyGuy an invite, so either he didn't see it or he's not interested. I'll probably go ahead and start, as Khush said this is a pretty normal amount.
