    Considering someone moved the previous thread to general chat and has now been closed due to reaching the 1000 post limit, here's a continuation, back where i think it belongs and we can all find it easily in other gaming chat, i've kept the leader boards intact from the previous thread to save any moaning.

    Original thread is here http://www.avforums.com/forums/general-chat/795223-guess-game-just-fun.html part 1

    Ok just for fun i decided to open this thread, the idea is simple, the implementation not so, but this is how it works for now.

    Someone thinks of a game, any game from say the last 25 yrs, we have to give a few clues to point people in the right direction of said game, whoever guesses correctly (and in the event of a few posting the correct answer obviously first correct reply) gets their username added to the scoreboard which is to be edited into the first post.

    Afterwards someone else can try and i'll keep tabs on the scoreboard, sound like fun? probably not :D but it's something different and hopefully will get more people involved.

    I'll kick it off with a nice simple one and whoever can think of a game and a few clues first after the correct answer is posted can start off the next one, obviously there will be a need to verify correct answers and maybe verify the incorrect ones too after a few of those are posted.

    Rules :-

    1) If the correct answer is given please don't complain about the results.

    2) Keep all game choices to english or Us titles only and make sure the game is correctly titled.

    3) If after a correct guess you chose the game to be guessed, please make sure you'll be around within the next few hours (sleep allowed :D) to verify a correct answer or maybe verify a few wrong ones too.

    4) One guess per post and no further guesses until someone else has posted.

    5) After a few incorrect responses or four or five hours (whichever is sooner) can the original clue poster maybe try editing their post with a further clue.

    6) Mark all new clues and correct responses by using
    red text that way they'll be easy to find and we can kick off another.

    7) clue posters must state which company's machine they played the game on along with the clue (To whittle down the era, amended rule applicable from 10th feb 2009)

    Added a top (part 2 only) correct guess leader board alongside the originals, so new posters can still achieve something too :D

    And another two picture clues, both are hugely popular and pretty easy to guess (Nintendo games)

    Thought i'd bump this thread, it's about time these two were solved, if you haven't had a bash before (the part 2 leaderboard is a bit sparse!) here's your chance to become famous :rotfl: :-

    my guess would be "Heimdall" on the Amiga and Atari ST, never played it myself despite having an Amiga 600.

    Heimdall being the god of dawn and light from Norse mythology.
