Ok, I personally love this game (hope you guys will too).

Basically, one person will post with some good news, then the next person will post with corresponding bad news, and some more good news.

For example:

Person: The good news is that Bob got a holiday to the Amazon!

Other Person:The bad news is that the plane crashed.
The good news is that Bob's fall was broken!

Other Other Person: The bad news is - so was his neck.

...and so on. I'll start:

The Good News is that Jim won the lottery!

This seems awfully similar to 'corrupt a wish'

Good news is they're not accepting it.

Good news is that Jim's funds have meanwhile been safely transferred to the bank before Ed Crash breaks out.

NiroZ: As far as I know, the Corrupt A Wish thread isn't continuous, although I might be mistaken.

Why don't you read the rules before you post?

To say nothing of reading the date on the last post. (And you thought his bumping of a game that'd been dead for only two years was bad.)

Funny story -- I was just about to start a game of Good News, Bad News, then I was scouting for similar posts and I saw this. But since it just got revived, I was wondering if I should start a new thread or post here.

If I should post here...

Fortunately, he threw the lobster over his shoulder before it had the chance to bite him.

What are you talking about? This game was pretty much dead, but anyway this is an epic example of how we used to play it in my family:

A man jumps out of a plane. Fortunately, he had a parachute.
Unfortunately, it didn't open.
Fortunately, there was a haystack below him.
Unfortunately, there was a pitchfork in it.
Fortunately, he missed the pitchfork.
Unfortunately, he missed the haystack.

Oh! Well, I was under the impression that anyone who feels like saying something could post and it didn't necessarily have to be someone who didn't post recently. That's all. I was not intending to do that every time, and I was specifically trying not to.

Good news: There is also a pillow
Bad news: He missed it. And he is going to fall down a cliff.
Good news: It's not too far below him
Bad news: But it is still far.

Yeah, zxcvboy, you're really starting to annoy people. I know you're just trying to join in the fun, but you're just upsetting people by bumping topics and breaking the rules to games.
