    Default The Episode Title Guessing Game

    EDIT from Hallow♥: This thread has been closed due to age, post numbers, and inactivity.

    This is a game based off the idea from this page:

    Two More Dub Titles...


    Basically, you guys give me descriptions of dubbed Pokemon episodes, and I have to tell you the correct title (without looking at an episode guide).

    This is how it works.


    There are 10 episode descriptions/titles per round. There are 3 rounds in each game. The person with the most points at the end of a round wins that particular round, and the person who has the most points at the end of the game wins the game. If you have the most points at the end of a round, AND you've knocked me down to zero points, then you have a perfect score (that means you get bonus points with 300 points added to your score, you win that round, and depending on how high your score is you might also win the game).

    I start off with 200 points, and the key to winning is, you have to get me to zero points by the end of 3 rounds.


    However, I earn 10 points for every episode title that I guess correctly. The person who asked that question gets 20 points.


    I get 5 chances to get the title right (unless I give up before then).

    So if you give me a description, I miss the title 4 times, and I do not know the title on the 5th try, then you have officially "stumped me". This means, I lose 20 points, and the person who asked the question receives 100 points. So the only way you can make me lose points is by me not knowing the name of a title.



    Okay, for example, someone gives me this description.

    What was the name of the first season episode with the Yaz and Kaz gyms?

    I say: "Showdown At Dark City"


    I then receive 10 points, and the person who asked that question receives 20 points.


    I lose a round if this happens:

    If an episode-description-person has more points then I do at the end of a round.




    I can lose the game if either of these happen:

    1. If I have been "stumped" 3 times or more in the same round.

    2. If I have zero points in a round (or by 3 rounds, the end of the game).

    3. If someone obtains a perfect score, earning the most points in a particular round AND knocking me to zero points.




    Okay, now that I've listed the rules and objective, who wants to play the game?

    I need to have a list of who's playing, so I can keep track of everyone's points.


    Or, if someone wants to, they could be an official Point Tracker, who adds up everyone's points.

    This would make things much easier for me, since I'll be focusing on getting those titles right. ^^



    The Ranking

    PokemonTrainerLisa: 200 Points

    Misty's Boyfriend: 20 Points
    Senator Habunake: 20 Points

    Ash and company find a 'Fossil Rush', and they get mixed up in a disaster involving Team Rocket and dynimite, and the day is saved by a performence by Jigglypuff. You'll get this. I know it.

    Named after the infamous Vanilla Ice song which was believed to be a drug reference.

    Heh.

    Misty's Boyfriend, that's an easy one!!


    "Attack of the Prehistoric Pokemon"


    Okay, so that means I now have 210 points.

    And you have 20 points.


    I will edit my first post now. XD


    Senator Habunake:

    Is the answer, "Nice Pryce Baby"?


    I'm not good with music references, because the only kind of music I listen to is video game and anime music (lol). You may have stumped me on that one. ^^o

    EDIT: it's not Fossil Fools?

    This episode doesn't actually have to do with being angry, as the pun in its title might suggest.

    Nope. I'm thinking raging anger, not jealous anger. Sorry, I probably should have mentioned that.

    Oh, raging anger......


    Let me try again:

    "Rage Of Innocence"


    Is that the correct title?

    Nope, not it, either: if I recall correctly, the episode was all about Gyarados being very angry (and in pain...).

    By the way, how many chances do you get to guess?

    Oh yeah, that's right.

    I never mentioned how many times I could guess......

    I'm gonna set the limit at 4 times, meaning I can miss up to 4 times without worry.


    However, if I get a title wrong on the 5th try, then you did a great job, and have officially stumped me. ^^



    And with that said, I will now try a third time:

    "Rough, Tough, Jigglypuff"

    No, that's not it......


    Aww, I give up. I concede defeat (unless, of course, you'd like to give me another hint?).

    You got me on that one, Kthleen. I don't know it.

    I can't think of which title it was, and there's many episodes that have a title like that, having something to do with anger in the title.


    And by the way, just for the record, which episode were you thinking of?

    It was "Fit to be Tide":

    fit to be tied

    Furious, enraged, as in I've been waiting for two hours and am fit to be tied. This expression implies anger so extreme that it requires physical restraint.

    Oh, that episode!!

    I always wondered what that phrase meant (seriously, I never knew what it meant until now).


    Anyway, great job, Kthleen!!



    So far, I'm back to 200 Points. And Kthleen now has 100 Points.

    Three questions have been asked so far. And there are only seven descriptions/questions left for Round 1.

    What will happen next?

    Thanks! ^_^
    And now you know a new phrase.


    New ones:

    1. The two things in this episode's title don't "make Ash dull"; in fact, in this episode, he and his friend (yes, singular) were hotshots.

    2. This title doesn't describe the shape of the Pokémon, as most references to it do. Instead, its description of this Pokémon makes it sound more like a karate master's hands.

    1. "All Torkoal, No Play"

    I think I might have that one right. ^_^


    2. "Machoke, Machoke, Man"

    I'm not sure about that title. I'll probably have to take another guess at that one......



    And by the way, Kthleen, you are really good at giving me challenging phrases/episode descriptions. I like that. It makes this game even more fun.
