    As far as games go, I'm up for anything, although I'd rather
    one that does not involve AtS, as I have not watched it
    in so long—the major minor characters I remember, and some
    one-shot stand-outs, such as Billy—but beyond that, I'd be lost,
    would just vote them down out of ignorance...

    However, if everyone else is into doing both shows, I could always
    go to the Buffy wiki to jog my memory...

    I do love the Prologue or Opening Scene idea, but realize it would
    take time, so the other would be lovely in the interim....

    So really—

    As you will—

    And we're done.

    Well it is no great surprise that we differed greatly in the final order of the 'top' eps from the last time an endings game ran as we only chose one of the same episodes as a season winner along the way. But for interest, the last time S1: The Puppet Show came 7th, S3: The Prom took 6th, S2: Lie to Me was 5th, S4: Doomed came 4th, S7: Showtime was 3rd, S5: OOMM 2nd and 1st was taken by S6: Smashed. And it Smashed was the only winner that matched in the individual rounds and made it to 2nd overall in ours. I like that there was plenty of difference along the way. It just goes to show with some time and different people these things can be interesting to rerun.

    Now we've just got to work out what we're playing next.

    EDIT: Totally happy to discount AtS for those who know it less.

    I'd prefer to discount AtS for the time being too, if possible, but will go along with the majority. As for the Prologue or Opening scene thing, it doesn't have to be a summary of the entire scene, I was thinking it could just be the last line/ or the last moment, like we've been playing so far in this elimination game.

    But I also think the character elimination idea sounds great too, so I'm game for anything.

    I've no problem with making a game just BtVS. And a game that includes character entrances and exits would also be spoiler ridden for those who haven't watched AtS too, so on reflection that's a terrible idea. To keep it in the mix of suggestions, I've just whipped through the character list I posted before and made it just BtVS (below).

    I really like the idea of going with the Prologue or Opening scene and agree it could just be a quick sentence summary of the literal last scene, with a last line given if there was one in the final scene, as we had here. It still took quite a while to go through every episode and pull that together though. I don't mind doing it again for the new game but it would have to be a little background project I was fitting in doing odd ones a day for a while to get through them all. So unless someone else has more free time to chuck at setting it up, it might be easier to agree a supporting character list and run that whilst the episode prologue or opening scene (whichever we choose) is put together. Or something entirely different, I really don't mind I just like the ease of dropping into the elimination games.

    Oh, the character elimination sounds great, I've just looked at the list! I'd love to play this!

    As for the prologue/ opening scene idea, it would take time to prepare the whole 7 seasons of it and as you did the last one for this elimination game, I think you could do with a break I'd be happy to do it, but may not be able to produce it now, so in the meantime it'll be fun to play the character game. Plus it's nice to know there's another game to look fwd to after it ends!

    If you're happy to put the prologue/opening scene one together that would be great, thanks.

    There are about 106 characters in the list. I'll try to find some time later to have a bit of a look over to see if I think I missed any support characters that should be on there. The other things to decide then is which count as main characters to take out. Clearly the core four should be taken out (Buffy, Giles, Xander and Willow), but I'd also argue the Scourge (Spike, Angel, Dru & Darla) and the big bads too (The Master, The Mayor, Faith, Adam, Glory, The First and possibly Warren). I'm not sure because I think some of those big bads, The First and Adam especially, probably don't benefit from being 'bigger' characters to a lot of fans.

    So many thanks, Stoney



    I agree that the Core Four and the Scourge should
    be omitted: Spike would cleary win, with Dru coming in
    near the top, obscuring the virtues of the smaller characters...

    I pretty much think the same about the Big Bads: Faith,
    especially, is so large and compelling a character that she
    would do the same; the Master and the Mayor very likely
    would as well... As you note, this would not be true
    for the duller ones, such as Adam and probably The First,
    but losing them might be worth it to keep the focus
    on the truly smaller characters:

    A game about them could provoke quite interesting discussions...

    But I'd love to hear the thoughts of others, as well...

    I also think it might be interesting to keep them in rounds based on chunks taken from them listed alphabetically like they are because it just mixes them up rather than being split into seasons. There's an argument for discounting Wishverse Willow and Xander perhaps too I think.

    I like the alphabetical arrangements:

    That would keep us from pitting the characters
    against each other in terms of the season...

    And yes, I would vote for removing all the Core
    Four's Alters... They, too, would threaten to
    steal from others all attention, all possible love...

    Part of what I like about this game is the attention
    it would draw to the details, what can slip by in
    memory or even familiar re-watching...

    Just a heads up: In case anyone would like to start playing the Prologue elimination game, the first three seasons are ready now. So we can jump into playing right away if you want. The remaining seasons won't take long.

    I don't really mind as I'd really like to play both of these games. I thought the character one would provide a bit of a break/change to the episode endings, but I have no objection to going for the prologues instead first. I haven't had a look over the character list to see if I think any 'should be included' supporting character is missing and to take out the core four etc we've discussed, so that isn't good to go straight away so perhaps the prologues one because it is ready first then? (thanks for doing the prep on it SpuffyGlitz )

    Oh okay, so then I'll do this:

    I'll open a new thread for the Prologue Elimination game, and post the Season One options and just keep it ready for playing. That way, if we decide to start it now, we can, or if we'd prefer to do the Character one for a change, we can always do that too.

    Oh I think it'll be a great game and we should go with it because it's ready. The character one can just be the next one.
