Sketchy Sketch Illumination Game

The rules for this one combine the best of the 'quotes' and 'songs' elimination games.

Sketches

For the purpose of this game, a 'sketch' is:

  • a clearly defined sketch from Flying Circus, a live show (Monty Python, Amnesty International, TV appearances, etc.) or a film (e.g. 'Michaelangelo meets the Pope', 'Live Organ Transplants' or 'Camel-spotting')
  • a link (e.g. an Undertaker taking a look at the score so far in the Agatha Christie sketch, or the Announcer announcing that he's not appearing in the show this week, or the Middle of the Film)
  • a Flying Circus film (e.g. 'A Scotsman on a Horse', or the Sedan Chair at the beach)
  • an animation sequence (e.g. suicidal leaves, Space Odyssey, Conrad Poohs)
  • a scene from a film (e.g. the mosquito bite, Pilate at the Forum, French taunter)
  • a scene from a longer Flying Circus sequence (e.g. laboratory scene from 'Science Fiction Sketch' or hospital scene from 'The Cycling Tour')
  • a running gag (e.g. Pigs vs. British Bipeds, knight with a chicken, bishop rehearsing his lines).
  • Vox Pops or Letters

I won't say you can't include songs or one-liners but there are other elimination games for those.

Scoring

  • In your first post each day you can +1 up to three different sketches and -1 up to three other different sketches (remember to note how you've scored them by putting +1 or -1 in brackets)
  • You must balance your scores; e.g. if you do two +1 then you must also do two -1
  • Subsequent posts on the same day may only +1 one sketch and -1 one sketch, even if you didn't do three in your first post
  • A sketch is eliminated as soon as its score reaches zero
  • On 8 January, 13 January, 1 February, 29 March, 5 May, 5 October, 27 October, 22 November and 9 December you are allowed only one post per person but you must score all of the remaining sketches, either +1 or -1
  • Don't post straight after yourself
  • Don't post straight after me*

Adding Sketches

Like the 'songs' elimination game you can add your own sketches to the list, but now it costs one of your +1 scores to do so:

  • a new sketch starts at zero and, to add it, you score it +1
  • any sketch that has been eliminated may not be added again unless you can slip it in without anyone noticing; if two other people post their scores after you've added it (without anyone wangdampening, i.e. pointing out that you've added an eliminated sketch) then it's legitimate again.

This means that the game potentially remains fresh and we don't end up with a situation like the 'holy grail' game, which is effectively, after a year of playing, a stalemate between two characters forcing players to score against their preference just to try to end the sodding thing.

I'll post a starting list of sketches below, but remember you can add your own sketches in accordance with rule 32b, sub-clause iv, paragraph 13.

And now,

Colonel Daughter at 12:01 pm November 13

no, actually I forgot the -1s !!
I have to stop posting after 1:00 in the morning...

genji at 3:01 pm November 13

Ah, sorry. 'Dynamo Tension' went up by 1 from Mrs. A. T. Hun's scores despite using your allotted three +1s for 'Working Class Playwright', 'Killer Cars' and 'Piranha Brothers'. I deduced from that that you'd based your scoring on HCAO's post. Which were your -1s then?

How far off GMT are you?

Colonel Daughter: actuallyI love them all....too difficult to choose...

Hmm...

I think you've highlighted a flaw. You did +1 for two sketches ('Working Class Playwright' and 'Killer Cars'). I think it may be a problem if you're allowed to add sketches without at least contributing to another sketch's demise. I think I'll add a rule that you have to balance your +1 and -1 scores. Otherwise we could just end up with 300 sketches to score.

Well spotted. And also well done on the 'how to hide new entries' technique! Have an extra turn.

genji at 11:41 am November 12

Three sketches. 'Working Class Playwright', 'Killer Cars' and 'Piranha Brothers'.

I'll come in again.

Mrs Attila the Hun 93: Ooooh, I say, what a simply super game!

Here Comes Another One: I am going to play, but I just want to say I love your intro :-D And I apologise in advance if I forget the rules. But I'll do my best. Just don't make me play in the rugby match against the masters, pleeeease?

genji at 6:19 am November 12

Of course not - that's only for those who don't play.

Here Comes Another One at 6:29 am November 12

:-p

the_thina: just one thing, in the holy grail-game, of the two remaining, I DO like the minstrels better. I would not give points to anything I dont like. and I dont think that many others in here does either

genji at 6:18 am November 12

Yeah, not you, thina. I'd be surprised if you didn't prefer a Neil Innes character :p

I don't think it's about giving points to something you don't like, more about giving them to the weaker option that you may have voted against earlier - when there are only two left you probably like both of them, anyway.

I'm not saying the players are doing anything wrong, just that IMHO it's a small flaw in the game because everyone ends up voting for the option with the highest score (which they may have voted against previously) because, well - what else can you do? You either accept a draw or see it through to the end.

I too scored them according to my preference, and not just to be obtuse. I think the French Taunter is was a significant comedic invention in the history of comedy films. That said, it's interesting that they're the two characters left when Arthur, Bedivere, Lancelot, the King of Swamp Castle, the Leader of the Knights Who Say Ni, Sir Galahad, Tim the Enchanter, Patsy, etc., have all been voted off. That's why I think you should have a chance to bring eliminated options back, even if it's against the rules.

the_thina at 3:04 pm November 12

haha. yes, I do have a big weak spot for neil, but I do for john (and the rest of the lads as well, but none of them is still in the game) + that character always made my day while watching that movie long before I had any clue who neil was. and I agree, the taunter is extremely funny, but somehow I find neil looking like a 5-year-old who you just stolen candy from just makes me laugh so much more. Im a sucker for funny facial expressions etc.

but yeah, I can kind of see your point, even if I felt I had to say it dosent HAVE to be like that, that people just vote to get the game to end.

anyway, I will make an official vote on this thread later, but my cat is scratching on the door now, gotta go let her in
