Game Ideas
Simple concept, we post ideas for games, then vote would play or wouldn't play on each idea. If an idea gets enough would plays, or even if it just gets a few, we post that as a new thread. When voting, specify the idea.

Lists. Misc. multiple lists, anyone can post a new list at any time.
Tournaments, bracketed.
Tournaments, round robin.
Musical novel. Post a snippet of a novel using song titles by a singer or group, the next player guesses the artist, then posts his own snippet.

You might want to run that one by the moderators. There was a period when several of those were running and one of the moderators decided it was a problem. He shut down all of the threads which were bracketed tournaments.

That particular individual is no longer a moderator (I don't think he's even active on the board). But I don't know if he was acting as an individual or on behalf of the board. And I don't know if his intent was to stop all threads of that type or to just suggest they be more limited.
