#Tweetsterium 2

Time for another #Tweetsterium

Added Numbers/Letters to make it easier to post guesses. I’ll work on the layout (and lighting) for these.

I think it’s fun to keep these casual and not try to track score or anything – but if you have ideas on how we could try some kind of score keeping – I’d love to hear them. I’ve thought about even doing a simple online doc or something people could enter answers in.

If we can figure it out – I might have a few games I could give away as prizes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

#MysTwit?

Going to post some Mysterium (Tajemnicze Domostwo) on Twitter too. I think it’ll work great online as a fun activity.

Any suggestions on what clever hashtag to give it? EDIT: Pete Newland came up with #Tweetsterium. I like that – what do you think?

Here’s what I’m thinking:

You lay out a set of weapons/locations/murderers with 1-4 clues next to each grouping. The goal is to identify the single weapon, location, and murderer from the clues given.

Example:

MysteriumTest

Thoughts? Suggestions?

#TwitCept Lives

#Twitcept is Twitter + Concept.

Concept is a wonderful family/party board game from Repos Productions. Players place markers on a board full of icons as clues to a subject. It’s a bit like Pictionary using icons instead of drawing. It’s very fun, accessible, and (it turns out) great to play online.

The way weโ€™re doing it is setting up a Concept board and tweeting a photo of it tagged with #TwitCept.

Anyone can play but either tweeting a #Twitcept or guessing on the ones shared.

Quick Primer

  • Question Mark (Green) = Thing to be solved
  • Exclamation Marks (Blue, Black, Red, Yellow) = Key themes or subjects. Can be used to help break down hint groupings
  • Cubes (Blue, Black, Red, Yellow, Green) = Hints. Colors are usually used to help group the info.

Complete rules: http://rprod.com/uploads/CONCEPT_RULES_EN.pdf

The PLAYER AID (that helps provide guidelines for the icons) is here: http://rprod.com/uploads/CONCEPT_PLAYERHELP_EN.pdf

This originally started with a few people on Twitter โ€“ namely Jason Paterson (@nakedmeeple) who was my original co-conspirator in GenCant!

Example

TwitCeptSmashUp

  • The Question Mark indicates we’re looking for a Toy/Game (in this case a game). The green cubes are indicating “multiple,” “cutting/fragmentation,” and “up.”
  • The Red Exclamation Mark is indicating “fictional/mythological.” The red cubes are indicating “building,” “city,” and “battle/war.”
  • The correct answer is: Smash Up. Other guesses could be Rampage or Rhino Hero etc.

Extra Life 2014

I’m lucky enough to be part of the Mox Boardinghouse/Card Kingdom Extra Life team this year. We’ll be playing board games and RPGs for 24 hours Oct. 25th, 2014 all in an attempt to raise funds to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network of hospitals. EVERY penny raised goes towards our local CMN hospital which, in turn, benefits millions of children.

If you are able to donate even just $1 (I adore $1 pledges!) please feel free to do so here: SUZANNE’S EXTRA LIFE PAGE

Your support is greatly appreciated!
