  1. Continuing the game started by @Dark  Game 2 begins with: carousel
  2. As a reminder of how the game is played...thanks @Valkyrie I’ll get this round started by beginning where we left off from round one shotgun wedding
  3. Continuing the game started by @Sasha Distan ...   Rain
  4. The popular drinking game has come to GA! Its simple you say something you've never done, the next person tells if they have or not, and then they add their never have I ever I'll get started... Never have I ever been a member of the mile high club
  5. Can you believe this game was started on May 29, 2006 (12 years ago! ) ? Going back to the beginning as we start a new round, I thought it would be kind of neat not only to have the original game instructions in the post, but to start game 3 from the original question, too. Here goes: @BoyNeedsTherapy said Ok, so I saw this game on another board and thought it sounded fun! So what happens is I start the topic by saying 'The person below me - ' and then making a statement about them. For example I could say: 'The person below me has black hair' Then the person that replies, would say something like 'No, I have brown hair.' And then they'd make their own statement like 'The person below me likes pickles' and so on. Got it??? So: The person below me has a dog.
  6. Rules: 1. Look at the 5 letters given by the previous player. 2. Use those 5 letters to create a sentence. 3. Then pick 5 random letters and add them after your sentence. 4. The next player uses those new 5 letters to create a sentence and so on. 5. Be creative but KEEP IT CLEAN! Example: YOMAD You Owe Me A Dollar. New letters: TWAGR
  7. I'll take the ribs but not the coleslaw. The person below me prefers Canadian bacon over pepporoni.
  8. A New Game! Word Ladders. Word Ladders…This is actually an old time puzzle kind of thing. In a Word Ladder, the object is to start with an Original word (I'll use HATES, for example), and turn the Original word into a new "Target word." Each poster changes exactly ONE letter to turn HATES into its target (I'll use LOVER in this example). It might run like this: Parker posts: Turn HATES into LOVER. Grumbles1 posts: HAVES Fliedermaus posts: LAVES Smugly84 posts: LOVES Grumbles1 posts: LOVER. I win. New post - turn BLATHER into SERIOUS... …and so on. General Rules – Responses must keep the letter changed in place. Grumbles1 changed the T to V, but its relative place in the puzzle remained the same. Use English language, with preference for uncapitalized, un-hyphenated words. Avoid proper names, unless absolutely necessary; non-English words used as a last resort. Obviously, keep it clean. Posters should not post twice in a row. Poster who completes the ladder sets the next ladder. Have fun…and so on to the first Word Ladder challenge: Turn CANDY into HEART (okay, so I'm a shameless romantic. Sue me.)
  9. Have you been inwardly guessing which Halloween Contest entries were written by which author. With the voting for the contest over, it's time for the GA members to try and guess who wrote what! The "reveal" will occur on October 31st, so try and get your guesses in before then. The only prize for this game is bragging rights, if you guess more right then anyone else. Remember, only one story was allowed per author.

  11. There's a new game running for the newsletter! Today we're going to get the ball rolling, and next week I'll announce the fun twist of the game. This will involve writing, so if you don't want to play, don't add the game information to your reply (feel free to talk/discuss otherwise). Don't worry, though, it's not a long or hard challenge. Take Two Game: Choose two nouns at random. Pull out a dictionary (if you own one!) or randomly search for nouns online. Take the first two you pick/see/get results for and add them to your post here. What are you going to do with them? Well... the answer for that comes with next week's newsletter. Game details: Game announcement 4/30/17 & 5/7/17. Game will run through 6/3/17 with newsletter feature on 6/4/17. Example: I want to play! This sounds like fun, and I can always use a creative nudge. (hint, hint authors!) Nouns: park & cereal
  12. An ingenious mapmaker has posted a map of Europe, featuring well known paintings as the graphic for each territory. Can you name the paintings belonging to the European countries? Maybe it's more a game for fellow European GA-members. But I know, at least the countries are no problem for @Drew Espinosa Original page, where you can make the picture larger. But be warned, on that page all the paintings are listed below.
  13. I have a fun game idea for GA readers, and, as an incentive to play, I'm going to give away a free copy of any one of my eBooks to one person. You can find a complete list on my Amazon author page. Winner does not have to have an Amazon account to win. The winner will be chosen via a drawing on random.org from the list of players who complete the scavenger hunt before the game ends on April 23rd at 11:59 PM, PDT. Winner will be announced April 24th. Rules: Find any of the following listen of items in a story written by any author here on GA. To prove your find, place a link to the page where the item appears beside the item on the list. You can quote my post and add it here or work off the Word form added as a downloadable file below, but anyone just copying instead of playing won't be entered into the contest. There are no single right answers, so the goal is to have fun racking your memory or searching for stories containing any one, or more, of these items! Word file: GA Stories Scavenger Hunt.docx GA Stories Scavenger Hunt April 13th-April 23rd 1. A character with a red shirt 2. The scent of vanilla 3. A peanut butter and (whatever else) sandwich 4. Fish 5. A character says “Holy crap” 6. Crackers 7. A character with a mustache 8. A silver car 9. A character smoking 10. Two men dancing 11. A planet with aliens 12. A dog barking 13.

  15. I just inherited a PS2 and am wondering what game(s) are the best to get into. Obviously it depends on personal taste but if you have any games you'd like to rave about, I'm all ears. Meaningful storylines and strategy make a game enjoyable for me. Here are some of the ones that stick out: Dark Cloud 2 (includes a Town Building element? But might be too cutesy) Beyond Good and Evil (anthropomorphic beasts, plot with depth, sci fi, photography, apparently similar to Zelda) ICO Shadow of the Colossus (looks fun, fight big bosses) FFX (I've beaten at a friends place but worth playing again) Kingdom Hearts (I think I played this while sick once but can't remember how far I got, something about a library) Any other ideas?
  16. Have you been inwardly guessing which Secret Admirer Contest entries were written by which author. With the voting for the contest over, it's time for the GA members to try and guess who wrote what! The "reveal" will occur on February 13th, so try and get your guesses in before then.

  17. First, AC has kindly given me permission to bring this game here and expand it. So, some basic rules: Choose a quote from a person, book, poem, film, etc and "text message" it. What counts as texting? Acronyms like OMG, netspeak like "B4" or simply removing vowels "people --> ppl" Others will then have to decipher what it is. Solve all of it, or a part of it. (leaving the rest for others to crack)* The person to solve all of it (or the last piece of the "puzzle") wins the round, and begins the next one. Keep the length of the quote/passage reasonable. I mean, don't text something like the entire Odyssey for us to solve As for an online guide, Netlingo has a large list to choose from. *What I mean is this, you can work with others to solve it, making it a team effort All right! With those pesky rules outta the way lets begin! "Sht ll th bl jys u wnt, f u cn ht m, bt rmmbr tht ts a sn t kll a mckngbrd."
  18. GA members were talking about trying to guess on which Secret Santa Contest entries were written by which author. With the voting for the contest over, it's time for the GA members to try and guess who wrote what! The "reveal" will occur on December 25th, so try and get your guesses in before then. The only prize for this game is bragging rights, if you guess more right then anyone else. Remember, only one story was allowed per author.

  19. A couple of days early, but I decided to have a little fun with Halloween on the horizon. We haven't done a word search for a while, but rather than do something site specific, I thought it would be fun to do one based on Halloween. Also, I wanted to make it a little harder, so not only is it a word search, but it is also a word scramble. In order to get the hidden words, unscramble the word list and then find the words in the Word Search. As always, I've included the excel document as well. Have fun!!!
  20. It's been a while since I've done a crossword or a word search, and thought maybe it was time to do another. In honor of the current "Anthology Theme Suggestions", I decided to do a word search using all the past Anthology Themes. Due to the sheer number of past themes (47 in all), this word search is a bit bigger than normal. Enjoy, and good luck! Anthology Themes Word Search.xlsx
  21. Who's ready for the next Word Search? Today's Word Search features the Promising Authors here at Gay Authors. Each Promising Author appears once as well as one of their stories. As always, I've included both the image of the Word Search as well as a downloadable excel format. If you have ideas for future Word Searches or Crosswords, feel free to send me a PM! Promising Authors Word Search.xlsx
  22. Hope everyone has gotten their thinking caps on cause this one is going to be harder! A big Thank You to Graeme for all the great clues he sent in! Now, you might have to do a little digging to come up with the answers on this puzzle. Some, you have to be familiar with the story. Others, you might have to scan through story descriptions. The answers can be found, somewhere, it's just a matter of where and how easy they are to find. Remember, everything in this puzzle has to do with Signature Authors and their stories. There's also an excel file for those that would prefer to download it. Have fun!!! Signature Crossword.xlsx
  23. Last month I decided to have a little fun and introduce crosswords to the GA News Blog. This month I've decided to introduce word searches! There are two ways that authors can be prolific here at GA, story count and word count. Today's word search is all about the top 30 most prolific authors based on their story count! I've done both the image directly in the blog, but there is also a downloadable excel file for those who want it! Enjoy! Prolific Authors Wordsearch.xlsx
  24. I've been trying to come up with some new things to do for the site blog. One thing that I thought might be fun and different is doing some different crossword puzzles. I'll be including both the JPEG crossword for those that want to visually complete the crossword as well as a downloadable excel document. The answers will be revealed in the Weekly Wrap Up! I'd love to hear what you think of including more crosswords like this as I have some thoughts on some other ones, but if you include the answers, make sure they are in a spoiler. This first one shouldn't be too difficult, though you might have to visit some profiles to figure out the answers. ADMINS & MODS Across 2.

  25. Plans for a GA forum RPG are currently in the works! It all started in this topic then movied to this one, if you want to catch up on the backstory. We have permission to do this in a subforum, but it won't be created until we have our list of players and our setting. That's where you good folks come in. Interested in having a go? Then put your vote in for where you'd like the game to be set. We would appreciate it a lot, though, if people only vote if they're thinking about playing - don't want to accidentally end up with what the wider forum thinks is cool outnumbering the players. Multiple choice, because what's the harm in voting for your second (or third, or...) fave? Current GMs: Myiege Persinette Current Players: Clumber Sasha Distan joann414 Daithi AnimalMorph Delores Esteban scotty94 Thorn Wilde JMH asamvav111 Celethiel nostalgiclikeyou If anyone's on there and doesn't want to be, or wants to be and isn't then let me know. I've been in a bit of a muddle today. Anyone who says they want to play will get their name added to that shiny, super-exclusive list. These are the rules Myiege and I have currently drafted, plus a sample Character Bio. The Character Bio is currently really vague and has no options for things like magic, since we don't know the setting yet. (It is also for a character nobody will ever want to play. ) We're looking for feedback on everything! EDITED TO ADD: Don't worry about filling out a character sheet at this point! Its purely there for you to go 'I like the way that looks/God, what are you thinking?' and generally give any opinion you might have on it. Rules: 1) What the GM says goes. If you have an issue with one or both of the GMs, please bring it to us directly, through PM. We are meant to be objective, but if you believe that for some reason we are not, don't hesitate to bring it to our attention. There are two of us for a reason! 2) If you feel you are being treated unfairly or think that someone else has broken one of the rules, please go directly to the GM through PM. We really don't need any vigilante justice people. 3) Godmodding. This is one of the big ones, guys. Godmodding (in case you aren't familiar with the term) is when you are essentially invincible. You make it so that no one can harm you and that you are super and ultra powerful. Another form of godmodding is using another character without the owner's express permission. Including killing them or making them fall in love with someone else or making them do ANYTHING without the owner's permission. Urban dictionary has a great definition if you are interested: http://www.urbandict...erm=god modding 4) Metagaming. Another big one. Please remember that you are playing a CHARACTER in a made up world and try to place yourself in your character's shoes and refrain from using information you, as a PLAYER, know and something that would be impossible for your character to know. A good example of this would be Sammy's character revealing some less than honorable intentions in an inner monologue and then Bobby's character calling them out on it. How, plausibly, would Bobby's character know any of what was going on in Sammy's character's head? Being suspicious of suspicious characters is one thing. Being all knowing is different and is pushing limits on godmodding as well, especially if you suddenly decide that you character can read minds. Also, 'bad feelings' should be able to be backed up with in-character interaction. Just a 'bad feeling' isn't enough. Please back up your feelings! 5) This seems like a no brainer, but please respect your fellow players. As a writing game, each of us has different strengths and weaknesses when it comes to our narratives. Also refrain from taking real world grudges (if any of y'all have any to begin with) into the game, or bringing RPG-related grudges OUT of the game. It's only a game and relationships should not be destroyed by it. This is supposed to be fun! GMs are not excluded from this as well. We will try to be as objective as possible. 6) Every player must submit a full character sheet (to follow) to GMs for approval. Please try to be realistic and creative. No one likes to play with Mary-Sues and character depth is important. 7) Please let other characters get a word in edgewise before posting again - for one thing, other characters might decide your character is an unbearable chatterbox. If things get too out of hand with this we may impose a posting limit 8) If for one reason or another you are going to be absent and you know this in advance, please let us know and make sure your character is not involved in any significant plots. If you are involved in a significant plot, please let us know far enough in advance that a temporary out can be found for your character. On a similar note, please don't abandon minor plots without finishing your part in them, even if it only effects a few players rather than the whole RP. Never finishing that in-character conversation about beer vs. cider is one thing; leaving a declaration of love hanging traps the other player in a situation where they're not sure what's happening with their character. 9) Players - with their consent - may be given plot hooks by the GMs. This can be anything from 'the Big Bad has secretly contacted you, what do you do?' to 'you are driven to fulfill your dream of becoming a baker'. You can request a plot hook/objective/sub goal at any time. 10) In-Character Actions do not equal Out-of-Character feelings. When a character is being a prick to yours, remember that the player doesn't feel any such thing about you - and if you genuinely think they do, bring your concerns to the GMs in a PM.
