icon Name that Room (+2)  
Hey,
so I was thinking that it might be fun to do some kind of DROD like scavenger hunt. Basically, someone would take a screenshot of a certain room from one of the official DROD holds, crop it down to like a certain, distinctive 5x5 section, and post it up here. Then, people would attempt to guess where it is from like they do in the "Guess That Screenshot" game. Does this seem interesting to anyone? I just thought of this so I don't know if this is a good idea or not. You could also do it by giving clues to describe a certain room in words as long as it is distinctive enough. I don't know if this sparks any interest...

Yes, sure, please go ahead!

We sometimes have a quiet bunch lurking, but a good contest or competition can get people actively involved.

It seems like there was already a thread that did that (post a room, guess what hold it came from). I'll see if I can find it.

Ah yes, here it is:

Maybe we can get it started again. Especially with the impending release of TSS. I was thinking that the pictures would be distinctive enough to be able to pinpoint an exact room within a hold.

Wow I go to the store, and when I get back people are already playing! YAY! And by the way, I might have overlooked how small a 5x5 square was -_-. I guess mainly what I was trying to avoid was something so large that it gave away the room without anyone needing to think. I think we should just use our judgement about the size where the image is large enough to recognizable, but small enough to still be something of a puzzle. And also, I think the person who gets the correct answer should go next.

Incidentally, I nearly withdrew that answer since I checked it in AE, where the dark and light tiles are the opposite way around to those in the newer style, hence my thinking that it must have been a different room.

Anyway, how about this:

I think that in this case, it would be fair to name any room which has exact same 5x5 piece in it. And that is probably a lot of rooms. Guessing one exact room if the details in 5x5 screenshot are not distinctive enough is sure not fun.

Sorry, this isn't an answer (I have no idea where it's from) - but I thought I'd point out that the rules in the first post actually state that the room should be from one of the official holds. I missed that at first, hence my posting of a room from Cavern of Gentry, so it's probably my fault for starting it. Perhaps this would be more playable if we did stick to official rooms? Just a thought.

So I guess that NoahT's room isn't an official one.

Let me try this then.

Since this game seems to be unpopular,
I'll give the answer for people how want to know.
Also, if the the game suddenly becomes popular again,
a new room can be chosen.

Might I suggest that if nobody gets it after a few days, the poster provides a larger picture of the room?

Also, does anyone think limiting the picture to purely the main holds (and not SMSs) might be a good idea? The game seems a bit slow otherwise.

I agree - zooming out on the original 5x5 section in a similar manner to 'guess what it is' would be good.

Personally I'd prefer it if any official room could be used, but I wouldn't mind if that's what most people wanted to do. I'm not sure why having the choice of SMSs would slow the game down.

Oh, just so the choice isn't that wide, and more people have completed the main holds but not all the SMSs. Up to you guys anyway, it was just a suggestion.
