I am gonna try a new game here now and i hope that it will become popular. If not i suppose the tread will just die of after a while.
The rules are:

I will give you a quote from a book and you have to figure out the title and the author. The quote must be long enough for someone to recognise it. So there won't be much use to give the quote
Quote:
I thought it she seemed very pleasant
cause no one would know that it was from The portrait of a lady by Henry James.
The book should also be reasonably well known, and when i say reasonably i mean that there at least should be a fair chance that someone here have read it. And that might be another reason not to choose The portrait of a lady by Henry James.

If no one have cracked it after 24h you have to provide a clue of your choosing. For example the book was released in 1937 or the author was a professor at Oxford University. Two clues that might point you towards The Hobbit. And after another 24h another clue. Try to make the second clue better than the first and the third better than the second.

After three clues you will have to pick another quote.

If you like you can also make the clues in form of a another quote or the same one only longer. But if you do this you will have to make it much more informative. For example you can give some names or places away if you didn't already do that in the original quote.

If someone provide the right answer it will be their turn to give a new clue. Only the one why provided the previous right answer have the right to give new qoutes.

How does this sound?

Ok I'll start.

Quote:
"I don't know," he said. "They could put up a warning sign or something. Hello. Welcome to Hinderstap. We will murder you in the night and eat your bloody face if you stay past sunset. Try the pies. Martna Baily makes them fresh daily."



EDIT: Forgot to mention important rule.

Oh, I like this!

Must we answer the previous quote before giving our own? Or is it more a free-for-all?

If the latter, I have my own quote:

Quote:
The Middle Ages hangs over history's belt like a beer belly. It is too late now for aerobic dancing or cottage cheese lunches to reduce the Middle Ages. History will have to wear size 48 shorts forever.

Yes you have to, that's the point of it all. Otherwise there would be anarchy and we can't have that now can we. Wink

Just so you know -- Googlebooks has a search function. I was able to crack both quotes in about three minutes.

I don't how you would enforce honesty among this bunch and keep us from peeking at Google. Damn technology! Mad

^^^Yup...

"Of cheap things it is the cheapest"

The Sea-wolf, page 68.... Fuck you Google.

Quote:

I remember the line 30 years after reading it, and the Google finds it in less than two seconds. Crying or Very sad

How about "Humiliation Game"? If you are the only one who hasn't read a certain book, you are credited. I just don't know how the game would work on a thread like this with rather a diverse crowd of readers.

^^ That direction will just serve to highlight Pastor Frank's low IQ.

He hasn't read anything that doesn't have pictures in it.

When you take the Google aspect in regard the whole idea seems pretty retarded. There really is no point in doing it if it's that easy to Google. I should perhaps given it more thought.

I i do like Nora's idea but i can't see how the game would proceed when it comes to changing turns.

No this one is perhaps a case for the scrapheap.

^^^ Not necessarily.

Substitute "book quote" with "parody" and "book" with "author" and "Pastor Frank" with "Canadian" and you can get an ungoogleable game!

Such as this:

Quote:
The mountains. They spoke to me and occasionally did the tango against the horizon. Who knows how the Donner party died? Maybe they're still out there, somewhere, drinking mimosas while the mountain tells them its life story.


Much harder, no? Now it depends on one's skill in parodying a writer's style, rather than someone else's skill in googling.

^Sounds complicated. I'm a simple fucker. I grow tomatoes in the summer and read books in the winter. (I also masturbate occasionally, but that's a different topic).

Unless you want to make it a book version of The Song Game. Use author/title instead of artist/title. Just a thought

^Might be a good idea. But isn't there still the Google factor?

The Song Game is totally out of my limits. I think I haven't heard any of those songs.

Perhaps, but The Song Game has the YouTube factor (YouTube is searchable).

I think Lakesides idea have some merit.
Sure it is somewhat easy to Google but you can say that about the son of the song game as well. And when compared to the now dead movie mash up game it is i think harder to Google.

But one can argue that son of the song game is not so much a competition as a chance to PW and show what kind of music you like. And that thread at least have the advantage that you can listen to the song named. Not likely you'll just read a book because it got mentioned in song of the book game.

As i see it the cons outweighs the pros. I'd say well close the tread as a failure.
