I am taking a hiatus from this game for a while. Great game. I've had a lot of fun playing and watching the chart up and down.

Have fun playing, everyone! :)

Looks like this has pretty much died. January usually has the most players, trying to start off a new year. Not sure I want to go through all this work for just a few players. And that's the only reason I even visit these boards any more.

It's holidays. Maybe people just are not in the mood to do predictions. I'll PM some regular players.

It's got nothing to do with the holidays. They happen every year, and the first game of the year is never this dead. It's more to do with Groucho and the way he runs the game. It's a dreadfully boring game with no innovation and no incentive to play. I'm surprised he even started a new game this year. If he hadn't, nobody would have been clamouring for him to do so. It's probably best that Groucho gives it to someone else to run, like he should have done a few years ago when it ran into inactivity the first time. Or just let it die.

Incentive to play? Here's one:

If you play this game, Algren won't.

That ought to encourage more people.

The concept is more original and interesting than other games. It is the longest running on this site. Of course you can always insert some funny tricks into the rules or give a prize to entice new players. But the lack of players, more than anything, has to do with KJ losing members and failing to attract new ones. The draft game you are hosting also lost two players this year. And that's a relatively new game here.

Post Re: Tomato Picker 1/2
This game isn't boring as an idea. It has been made that way by Groucho through lack of innovation, lack of foresight, little clue as to what movies are important, and an unwillingness to evolve. He also has a superiority complex, where he will take umbrage over comments rather than using them to improve. It's HIS game, and it's run HIS way. Sorry, but that doesn't cut it on a small forum like ours. When people make suggestions (if you care at all) you should incorporate those into the game. So it's probably a good idea that the RT Picker game dies.

If you compare the way that MGKC runs his game and the way that Groucho runs this game, it's obvious why nobody plays this game (well, to anybody that isn't Groucho).

To Groucho's credit, he did take your suggestion that predictions be submitted via PM. He is also open to suggestions of movies to be included in the list. He created an interesting game. Sure, more could be done to improve it. But you are simply being too harsh on him.

Well, the proof is in the pudding. And the pudding is that this year the RT Picker almost never began because there wasn't enough players. The buck lies with him.

Post Re: Tomato Picker 1/2
Meh, don't argue with Algren when he is in troll mode.

As I've pointed out previously, he fits that mold perfectly: insecure guy who gets his jollies out of insulting others and then laughs at them when it's pointed out; gets angry when people have other positions or viewpoints and demands that they see things his way or else he accuses THEM of being unreasonable; and is really incompetent (see his Rotten Tomato scores over the years) so lashes out others as a way to cover his own inadequacies. Very Trump-like, actually.

I seriously don't care what his opinion of me or my game is. I.hope and Jack Sparrow others who I have respect for? Yes, their opinion absolutely matters to me.

And that's the best outcome, because your game will die, and you will no longer come to the forum. Good riddance. :thumbsup:

Trolls and bullies also can't take criticism very well, they can only dish it out and never can take it:

Groucho,

Please stop personal messaging me to join in any new RT Picker games. I think I've made myself clear. I DON'T WANT TO PLAY YOUR FUCKING GAME!

Actually, just never PM me for anything. If you reply to this, I will not even read it. I'll delete it unread.

Is Algren going down the rabbit hole? While at times he's rude and mean, he once seemed to be an easygoing one at heart (very weird of me making this observation about a character I only meet online lol).




Let's look at the chart and find... Corpse being Corpse. :lol:
