Re: themes
No big deal. Just trying to keep them somewhat interesting, not tricky.

I can only speak for me, but the antic on the other game turned me off on themes.

Honestly, I have no idea about the other multi game other than it exists. Never seen it and I'm not a flugistanian...

If this list isn't grabbed by Saturday morning, I'll throw a new one up...

Screw it. Why wait?
Grab either list, but not a combination of the two. In fairness to those that think this list sucks for whatever reason and to those that may already be working on it. If you're in the second group, you've had a 3 week + head start...

The original list:
New list - was going to do something based on the first day of Summer, but realized that for folks in the Southern Hemisphere, that ain't exactly so.
So... checking to see whose birthday it is brings up Errol Flynn - born June 20, 1909

Errol Flynn movies

1) The Prince and the Pauper - your bike and twin anythings. Towers, kids, etc. Use your imagination.

2) The Adventures of Robin Hood - anything to do with taxes - a local tax office, tax preparer, etc.

3) The Dawn Patrol - military aircraft - ideally, a fighter, but that may be a deal breaker for some

4) Gentleman Jim - anyplace that has something to do with boxing

5) Against All Flags - anything that has some sort of pirate symbolism

Wildcard) The Sun Also Rises - a bull - preferably real, but a likeness is fine.


And the replacement list:

1) A fence that stretches the width of your picture. No close ups, please.

2) Your bike on a bridge with the object it's spanning viewable in the pic. Another road, water, ravine, whatever.

3) Someplace that sells frozen desserts other than ice cream as their primary business - frozen yogurt, frozen custard, etc.

4) Something seriously colorful. Use your imagination

5) A single brand motorcycle dealer other than Honda

wildcard: a place that sells race gas with evidence of it in the picture

Someone nail this thing, please.

Had half of the first list but just went with the new one since the Twins were giving me issues.

1) A fence that stretches the width of your picture.



2) Your bike on a bridge with the object it's spanning viewable in the pic. Rockfish Creek


3) Someplace that sells frozen desserts other than ice cream as their primary business



4) Something seriously colorful.



5) A single brand motorcycle dealer other than Honda

T6D, glad you got that Triumph dealer when you did. The Ducati sign goes up next week.

OK new list.

Seems like everything I own is something that I have given a second chance to. So lets try this list.

1) Flea Market / open air market

2) Yard Sale / Garage sale

3) Thrift Store / Second Hand Store

4) Used Car Lot

5) Motorcycle Shop that sells used motorcycles

New list with no discernible theme...

1) A pond. Should be able to see the whole thing in the picture.

2) Your bike on a bridge with you NOT on the bridge.

3) A train - moving or stopped, but not a display

4) Anything to do with any winter sport - an ice arena, ski shop, etc.

5) A stretch of pavement/roadway with no painted lines on it

Wildcard) Something identifiable as being where you're from. NC barbecue restaurant, TX oil well, CO Rocky Mountains, Swiss clockmaker, Belgian chocolatier, etc.
