Name That Frame! Caption Game (See rules in first post)

Postby maggosh » Wed Feb 11, 2009 1:48 pm

Somewhat of a game we have on BiM.

Blue on Brickfilms wrote:
IMPORTANT: Read these before you post.

Rules wrote:How it works:

  • One person - the 'Judge' - posts an image from a brickfilm of their choice. Please put the name of the brickfilm and the person who made it, we don't need accusations of theft. That and it's just good manners. If you can't think of a brickfilm, you can use any Lego related image, like from Blockland or Lego Star Wars.
  • You then have 24 hours (give or take a few) to post a caption for that image. I don't need to tell you that the judge can't caption their own pic. You can make as many captions as you like for each one, I'm not going to stop you - but try not to double-post. The winner is the person who the Judge believes to have made the best caption. So no complaining if you think their choice sucked.
  • After the 24 hours are up, the judge chooses a winner and two runner-ups. The winner then has another 24 hours to post another image in this thread. There are enough 'broken record' topics around here already without adding to the list.
  • If the winner hasn't done so already when the time's up, the 1st runner-up chooses the next image. If the 1st runner-up hasn't posted one after the same time period, then it's passed to the other one. If, by some sheer fluke, the 2nd runner-up doesn't post an image, then it's thrown open. If the winner doesn't want to choose the next image, then they can pass it on to the 1st runner-up. The process then repeats itself.
Rules of Conduct.

  • When announcing the winner and runner-ups, please quote their captions. This'll save a lot of confusion, especially if there were multiple captions from the same person.
  • Don't quote the image if your post is on the same page as the judge - people are perfectly capable of scrolling to find it. If you do quote an image, then please remove the image tags. Multiple copies of the same image on a page isn't fair on our dial-up users.
  • Very important - NO SPAMMING! Naming no names, but there'll be trouble if I so much as catch a whiff of it from you. You can comment on someone else's caption, but try and add your own at the same time. Again no double-posting - there's an edit button. Use it.
  • Bear in mind that we have younger members. So no improper subject matter - I don't want a repeat of what happened in my Spawn of Satan topic. And don't do anything that'll make the mods mad - or anyone else come to think of it. I don't think I need to warn you about swearing.



In short; someone posts a picture, be it a frame from a brickfilm or just a scene you took a picture of at your desk, and others make captions for it. After 24 hours or so, the one who posted the frame judges the captions. Whoever wins posts another frame, and play continues like that.

I suppose I'll start with this frame from Dave's The Hand of Fate.

And one last note; Be creative!

I like both of them! I was never one for captions though.

Okay, here's my caption, but I can't do pictures, so I'll just type it, and if I win, first one to post after the announcing winners post can go.

I don't know why I dropped back here again lately. LEGO can no longer hold my interest, and I'm almost certainly gone forever. Bye to all who remember me.

You can take a frame from a pre-existing brickfilm you know. ;)

Passenger: "Good gracious, how old is this bus driver?"
Other passenger: "Well, he was released in a 2002 set, so by my reasoning, he's only seven."

OR

Driver: "Well, some people drive with their brakes on. But he drives with his kickstand down."

And so jimmy realized that bicycling is NOT the best way to get to work.
