[2018 - Locked] What I see - The Inventory Game!

Post by *The Butler » Sun Oct 07, 2018 1:16 pm

The way this game works is, you describe what you currently see (or is in the room/area around you). So obviously you see a computer, a forum, a thread (let's not be too obvious here!) - but what else is in your immediate surroundings?

For example, there is a plant on my desk.

So I would put "a plant"

The next person replies with the type of plant they think it is (doesn't matter if they're right or wrong) but describes it like a Sierra game Inventory item - like, "You see a green, spiraling plant" and can be as serious or silly (so for example, if you wanted to give it a Space Quest theme, you might write, "You see a Borkadin plant from the planet Xenoth - be careful Roger, these things can eat people!") as they want, but then puts an item that is around them for the next person to write about.

Next person would guess the type of item they posted, and so on and so on.

It's similar to the two truths/lie thing. But this gives you an idea of what kind of stuff someone has around them. (Granted this may change, as they may reply on their mobile device, while sitting on a train) :)

Just thought it might be fun to do another game! Have at thee, if interested!

I will start with: a plant

You have a cactus on your desk. It's been your best friend ever since you got lost in Death Valley so many years ago after that ill-fated parachute jump.

I have... an old PC game.

Thou see'st a piece of parchment glued unto the wall with resin, upon which ye legend is wroten and illuminated with a careful script hand: "Ye Garden of Sound, featurynge ye singer St Christopher Cornello."

(No joke, here ... RIP Chris Cornell. :( Yeah, Soundgarden!)

A black box with a glass aperture, you wonder what it is used for.

a lead pencil.

You have a lead pencil, which - alas - is broken. It is like unrequited love. They are both pointless.

I have a credit card bill...
