Is here the "official" place to play the "Questions Only" game, as found on "Whose Line is it Anyway"? Would the answer be yes?

Would it be too much to ask that the winner hosts the next game after I host the first one?

Could anyone interested in playing post here, so we can begin? Would a maximum of 8 players at a time be too much?

Do you get the idea of how to play yet? Isn't it aparent you would have to post questions on a certain topic in a certain amount of time? Is 24 hours ok for everyone?

Any suggestions on prizes for the winners? Would modding +3 for first, +2 for second, and +1 for third be too much?

How would we judge who the winner is? Would this be open to everyone? Are you just allowed to reply to any question with "Are you sure?" or something like that?

Does this infringe on some Copyright?

Being serious, and avoiding writing questions so that people can understand better, the rules are as follows.

The first 8 people who wish to play are the contestants. The host decides on a topic or storyline the questions must follow, and then picks the order of the contestants.

Starting with the first player, each must post a question within 24 hours of the previous post. It is up to the host to decide whether a question is too simple, or has been used too much. The host should post a notice if someone has failed to follow the rules, and once someone is out, the remaining players continue in order.

Questions like "so?" may be decided to be too short to work, unless the host feels like it is a witty retort to the previous question.

Ultimately it is up to the host of the current game to let people know how they will rule on the questions so that the players will know what to avoid.

The winner would be the last person left after the rest have been eliminated.

I have no knowledge of any Copyright infringment, since I clearly state where the idea came from, and am not getting money to do this.

It seems we may have 8 people interested so far, though confirmation will be needed. Here are the ones I have so far:

calamarain
bobpie
maurog
eb0ny
jbluestein
snacko
beefonthebone
jatopian

This is enough to start the game, if everyone wishes to.

Would anyone mind terribly if I were to throw my hat into the ring?

Is this even going to work in anything like the same way when we're not on the spot? Who can say?

So, you mean, we have to, like, talk like KoL's Sorority Orcs? Like, making every sentence a question, even if it's really not? Would I be interested in playing the fool?

It seems we now have 8 people other than me who placed a post here. If they are all interested in playing, we will begin.

Recap of rules:

Host(me for now) will decide on topic and order of participants. After both are declared, the first person on the list has 24 hours to post a question that follows the topic. Each player on the list then has 24 hours once the previous person posts to respond to the question with a question of their own.

The host(me at first) will decide if questions follow the rules, which are decided by the host. For example, I will consider sentences that just have a question mark after it not to work. When someone fails to follow the rules, by not posting a question in the time limit, or posting an incorrect post, the host will post letting them know they are out, as well as updating the turn order.

It is up to the host to let people know how they will judge the questions.

Do you want to be in? Or is this a rhetorical question?

Is it up to me to say whether you're in, or is it up to the moderator?

I will assume everyone wants to play and begin our first game. I am pretty lenient with what is ok. As long as you don't use the same question over and over again, and actually try to follow the topic, I won't kick you out. The order of players will be as follows:

snacko
eb0ny
maurog
jatopian
beefonthebone
jbluestein
calamarain
bobpie

Make sure you know who you go after, as I will only post the revised list after someone gets knocked out of the running.

The topic is the following: "Looking for a pet". Let the game begin with snacko

What do you mean by a pet? Can't it be both a noun and a verb? Are there any limitations to the kind of pet?

Can we assume that we can inquire any pet from a list found here?

EDIT: After all the fuss about the Portal nobody took this test?

Unfortunately you are. Also I would like to point out that snacko has posted too many questions on his turn, so is kicked out. The turn order is now as follows:

eb0ny
maurog
jatopian
beefonthebone
jbluestein
calamarain
bobpie

It is currently jatopian's beefonthebone's turn.

NOTE: Questions should try to answer the previous players question while still being a question. Example for the topic might be as follows, where each line is a separate post:

Do you have a pet?
Are you looking for something specific?
Does it matter if I'm not?
Would I be able to tell?

And so on... Hopefully this gives the players some idea of questions to post.

Shouldn't you actually post rules before kicking someone out for not following them?
