It helps if you post the hiding place and your bike with the words

"This is the money shot" or "the drop" or "new tag location"
I scrolled back and there is no pic of the bike where nutzy was hiding on the last drop, so....

Still following along hoping I can play again

Having hungout with nutsy and gone on a couple of (motorcycle) rides with him, I don't think he minds being on the bicycle. He's a real easy fella to get along with.

I don't know what you'd have me do here except for riding my bike through a park (what amounts to an alley really) surrounded by shops and restaurants, full of tourists and security cameras and police. We will ride on my motorcycle back to as close to the tag spot as I can get and get a pic from there.

As for the box, which is getting full of stuff...going way back in the thread here to the original box dropper

It looks like people have been adding things and not taking rewards. The box is almost full, and Nutsy thinks the space is getting a little cramped. So I propose we use it as a swap...each player takes something from the box and leaves a new item in the box. Anyone have any objections, comments, other great ideas? It's either that, or by the time he reaches the west coast he'll be in a full Pelican case

He was a little confused to be sure. He thought the lack of engine noise sucked, but he was happy to get moving again.

A pelican case as a reward for the grabber sounds pretty cool.

My .02 -> if it isn't legal to ride a motorcycle to the spot where the tag resides, don't ride a motorcycle, and don't insist that anyone else ride a motorcycle there either. This is just a game. Two wheels is two wheels and the bicycle grab is, imho, ingenious under the circumstances.

Keep it safe. Keep it legal. Above all, keep it fun.

And try to plant the tag with a shot of your bike in it. It seems obvious but still seems that not everyone understands that one.

First - Boxchain; No need for a shot with your motorcycle, you just did what you had to do to rescue Nutsy. The problem is that he SHOULD NOT have been placed where he was ( or the previous location either ) in the first place.

Second- Flashback - I have a better idea; if it isn't legal to ride a motorcycle to the spot DO NOT use the location as a drop spot. It really is that simple. Nothing against bicycles, but this is a motorcycle game.

THE BOX
-- Keep it or ditch it? I vote ditch it.

First, I apologize if my drop location was too far from the tag photo, but there wasn't any complaint about the last drop being a short hike from the photo. Looking at the map now, it is 2/3 mile away, so probably was too far, my bad. If I had known the box was negotiable it would have been a lot easier to hide him.

Second, we have a rule in the local and state tag games that would go great with rule #3 in this one, "No whining!" These games are supposed to be fun.

I don't keep up with the games outside my regional forum (Tejas & Gulf States), but for an example of a game that everyone bitched about every rule violation, see the Arkansas thread. People whining from the start, thread was dead in 6 months, 262 posts.

For an example of a game that plays a little loose with the rules, but has very little bitching and a lot of fun, see the MS thread or the Jackson local thread. Both have been going strong for almost 2 years, current post counts are 3,906 and 2,805 respectively.

Pfft, lightweight taggers. The PA ToR has been active since 08/08 and is sitting at 8200+ posts.

However, I agree with the post. There have been a few...uh...questionable tags in PA that I have let slide. Sometimes a new rule would come out of them, but for the most part, we just moved on and played the game.

THE BOX

Thanks for weighing in. I understand it's a motorcycle game, and I'll go back on the ST and take a 'near' shot anyway, I live almost within shouting distance of the spot, and there are many other things to see in the area.

As for the box, I'm fixing to catalog what's in it, and throw out this bloated bag meal before someone gets hurt by it. The Louisiana sun is not kind to such things

Maybe, as an *option*, someone leaves the box behind for the Bruced? Where did that term come from anyway?

What I liked about your drop was the sheer number of people that pass by there on a daily basis gives it a danger factor, (I was also worried he would get found by a non player) but like I said before, the tag case look exactly like the junction boxes they use for lighting. I'll post a pic later.

I believe the reason for the 'bike in grab and drop shots' rule is to make sure that it stays a bike riding game and the tag gets around on two wheels and doesn't fly or drive to the next location. You obviously rode him down here, and finding a drop here where nobody would mess with it is difficult.

And with that, on with the game!

So yesterday we got rain for the first time in weeks, and the second time in months, so I caged it. It was take Nutsy to work day




Beautiful weather today, and it looks like all weekend. Nutsy knows it, and he's ready to ride

Laugh Porn

For the bike in the picture, that is what its all about isn't it?

Bike porn for those that are not playing. I like your R80 but never saw it in the tag pictures. I also ride BMW, see my sig.

Beautiful bikes on beautiful settings.

Back to the game!

From the back side of that, head northeast again, between the buildings. There are some statues and fountains. Find this one


Look to the right of her and you'll see the bushes


ya know, I don't consider this whining, and actually I thought Crash's tag shot was fine, seeing As ALL tag spots require hiding freaking Nut, where it won't be stolen...coming from the person that was responsible for loosing the original engraved Nutzy, I understand this...I thought my "location" was safe, i was wrong, and early in the game thinking it would be grabbed rapidly, was the reason it was stolen....or tossed, or what -th -freak ever happened.
Now the sucker has been around, and placed in some questionable spots to say the least, but MANY times he was placed a short (or longer) walk from the "tag photo", which is STILL a pre-requisite thing...Tag-grab, photo with a Motorcycle required for BOTH. Turn it into whatever you want, I gave an Honest tagger a line-o-$#!+ once because he forgot to shoot the bike at the grab, and i DO believe he rode a Motorcycle there, he was a good player, and took Nutzy on a nice mission...On a Motorcycle.

simply put, Crash rode to a spot, and had to walk to hide it well...beeen done many times on both this, and the other national, and many regional tags.....

there is no question he posted a required photo that should have been posted by te grabber.....and also directions to grab it.....all really need to be in the game ...posted above....
wtf is the problem with his post?
he difined the location, gave a TAG PHOTO...(some of us call it "The Money Shot")
and directed the execution.
This is simply a case of "ooooo it's across the street from my house", ride over on the bicycle, grab it, and all is a go.......no different than a car grab. C'mon man, this isn't even arguable, you read the thread for the drop, a TAG SHOT was defined, never even tried to emulate it, now in retrospect, it's a "gimme a call...ruling?" thing?


I could care less about the box-o-stuff, it's a nice gesture, and always a "leave a penny- take a penny thing", it could dissapear, and it would be easier to hide the nut.....

but for Criminy sakes, play the freaking game as iot was meant....

it was'nt, and the grabber knows it.

Yeah, but you gotta have a Grab photo in the spot the TAG PHOTO was, with your "bike" in the shot....

i'VE BEEN IN PIZZIN DISTANCE OF THE TAG A COUPLE TIMES WITH MY MOUNTAIN BIKE IN THE BED OF MY TRUCK......never would I even consider this as a means of a grab. Maybe some folks don't think so, but then maybe they consider walking across the street, picking a grab, and walking home, to the garage where thier motorcycle sits, simply fine. I don't.
the Nut is required to elicit a grab, but FOREMOST the tag shot MUST BE MADE UPON THE GRAB POSTING...PERIOD.

carry on, ride the bicycle and drop it. Maybe somone wants to ride a unicycle for the next grab. consider the drop distance.
this finally turned into pu$$y tag.

I withdraw my whining accusation :) I just didn't want to see this game get so strict on rules that it lost the fun factor. Play on.

I'll just throw in a reply for giggles, not that it matters to me. But if you can't see the drop spot in the tag photo, it isn't a tag photo.

For instance, I could tag the base of El Capitan in my photo then climb all 3,000 feet to the top with the Nut using harnesses and climbing gear, place him gently in a crevice and call it a "tag". But there is no way I could expect any grabber to get the shot with there motorcycle if I did that. That kind of placement is way outside the bounds of the game.

Yes the above is an exaggeration but it illustrates the point that the mode of transport of the nut to his place of rest matters. Hiking across town with it, mountain biking down a trail, grabbing a subway, taking a cab several blocks, skateboarding down the sidewalk, roller blading around the city, and what ever other mode of transport that is used to place the nut away from the tag shot can't reasonably justify a "motorcycle" grab.

And the pedal powered grab was, in my opinion, in the spirit of the game given that the tag drop was not visible (actually a couple blocks away according to the poster) to where the tag shot was taken.

It's really not that important other than that the tag was placed where no motorcycle could get it, therefore the grabber improvised in his grab and did the best he could with a rather impossible situation.

My vote is decidedly let's play on.

Nobody raised a hair when crash made the DROP, posted TAG SHOT, and completed his post....he didn't take a crosstown subway to the hiding spot, he rode/walked/ate pastry...heheheh

the Grab could easily be emulated in the spirit of the game.
The rules are on page one, it's noted to watch how the game is played to preclude issues like this, and someone can always ASK beforehand about them.
It's also noted the other games this game is gleaned upon as references, some state if you can't ride right to the drop spot, a TAG photo as near as possible is permitted (i.e. acess at time of grab restricted by gates, parking, floods...etc....)

get on a motorcycle, ride it, drop the Nut, and get on with it....
O2, please revise rules as needed to provide unquestionable direction that this IS a motorcycle game. That should ease the possibility of skateboarders, roller bladers, unicycle riders, or any other intervening vehicular interloping in the evolution of "thinking outside the box"....

Game on please.
