    Default About Counting Games

    To Fun and Games visitors,

    Thanks for your cooperation and patience regarding counting games.
    We are now allowing counting games in the subforum, under the following rules":

    1. There can only be up to three running counting games at once.
    If a fourth counting game thread is posted when there were already three threads present, it will be closed.

    2. All counting games must have at least one aspect that differs from simply counting.
    All counting games must have a reasonable limit; a number that once reached, the game ends. Also, counting games need a certain method to post other than just "1", "2", "3". It can be anything, such as a posting restriction (example: posting a statement related to the number) or having an action that forces the count to set to zero, or a combination of both.
    A counting game that counts to infinity or consists solely of counting "1, 2, 3, ..." will be regarded as pointless, and will be closed.

    3. Threads that have no new posts for four days will be closed.
    To prevent an inactive game from taking up one of the three slots, staff will close threads that do not have a new post for four days.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of the Fun and Games staff: Kakuna Matata, Bouffalant Herdier, Parma, or Caprizant.

    Enjoy! :)

    I have a question about this. Another forum I was on once had a counting game that consisted of people posting pictures that related to a number as they counted "1, 2, 3, 4..." Would this be considered pointless?

    (And I realize there are already enough counting games, I'm talking about for when another spot opens up.)

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    @Goodbye Blue Monday;
    That's totally fine. What the rules say is that games that literally are composed of only counting like 1,2,3,~ without any other 'posting style' aren't allowed.

    Two slots for Counting Games are now available. I encourage anyone interested in making one to make a unique and memorable one. Let's see some creativity!

    Can I start up "get through A-Z without staff resetting to A #5?" I just wanted to check if it hasn't already been made.

    Once a version of a counting game has ended and been closed, anyone is free to start the next one.

    'A through Z' v6 is up at the moment.
