More like a rally event. Sounds like fun.

The thinking-only tag game will have to wait until we all reach another astral plane.

Not to step on your riding boots Walter, but I think Hack was asking about after he wins the 1st round Saturday, then he will only have to think of 7 things for everyone else to take the pictures of.

If that's the case, than I misunderstood his post.


Yes, after the winner posts his/her 7 pics in a post, then the following Friday around 9PM he/she gets to list the 7 new things for that challenge.


Since this is a regional game, the general guideline should be things that everyone has a reasonable chance of getting. For example; if you wanted to use a shoreline/beach, it should be a lake or ocean shoreline/beach; not just an ocean shoreline/beach ('m going to include this in the post as well).

I'm interested. I've seen games like this (of the non-specfic items kind) go awry based on people stretching the rules a little.

I'd apply a "Common Sense Ruling Clause" so people who try to sneak a red dog house for a red house are put in their place ;-)

Does the winner have to post actual photos as well? Or just list the items?

File photos not allowed?

Is there some kind of relationship to riding miles? EG: Find the items in the least or most number of miles?

I'll tend to be liberal- if the tag is just a "red house" a picture of the bike with a red dog house would be ok because it shows a level of ingenuity and falls within the scope of what a house is.

Here's an example of what's not acceptable-- say the tag reads "your bike next to a brook" and you post next to a girl whose name is Brooke. Not good, even if it's Brooke Shields. Well, maybe if it's really her .


I'm counting on people adhering to the spirit of the game rather than being

The winner does not have to post any photos of the items that will be part of the new challenge, just what was tagged in winning the current challenge.

Although not impossible, it's very unlikely that a file photo could successfully used because of the "marker" the challenger will pick. To elaborate on the example I used in the first post of this thread- I may say "your bike must have a red towel/rag hanging from the left handlebar in the picture" or "you must have a baseball cap on the motorcycle seat". Again, this doesn't eliminate the possibility of a file photo being used, but it does make it pretty unlikely.

No, the only determination is tagging the items and putting all the photos in 1 post the soonest.

Remember, if you post the challenge you can't participate in it.

I'm counting on people not doing silly things, but rather put some thought into what they want tagged and make it somewhat challenging. If the game gets too silly then people won't play and it will die a natural death.

Yes, it's a weekend game to try to level the playing field for people who for whatever reason can't play during the week. It gives them a few days to consider what they want tagged and to decide what new marker to include in their challenge.

You say it's a regional game,,,, what's the region boundaries?
Why pictures only in daylight?
What about folks that don't work a normal M-F work week?

Our region- Flugistan.

It's the only way to ensure the game starts on the weekend.

Re normal work week: can't solve everyone's scheduling issues. This covers most people.

Walter, this sound like fun, I may never have the time for it but would love to try, the only question I have as of now is.

Will all member of said "team" have to have their motorcycles in the picture, or can a "Dream Tagging Team" be build and send their to one leader to post their 7 pictures?
