I Have, I Have Never


I’ve been trying to come up with a new thread game and I think I have a winner. Alert the neighbors and kinfolk because it’s sure to sweep the nation.

Here’s the deal: the poster makes two statements. The first one being “I have X’d but you have not”. The second one: “I have never X’d, but you have”.

The next poster references the previous post and answers true or false to each of the statements. The object is to get the next poster to answer True to both of your statements.

Example:

Post 1:

I have been to Missouri but you have not.
I have never had a tooth pulled but you have.

Post 2 (different poster):

True and true.

I have owned a vehicle with a manual transmission but you have not.
I have never sung karaoke but you have.

And so on.

My first real entry will be in the next post.

Remember, this is not a competition, it is only an exhibition, so please…no wagering.
