The Related Posts Game

Well, in all of my random spare time, I've come up with a random Related Posts game. Random.

Want to know how to play? Of course you do.

  1. First, go to the newest Four Island post
  2. Check to see if there any related posts. If there aren't, go to the next most recent post.
  3. Once you've gotten a starting post, the game starts. Every chooses a related post.
  4. On the related post, check to see if there are any related posts that you haven't been to already. If there aren't, the game ends for you. If there are, you get one point.
  5. Choose a related post that you haven't been to already
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 until the game is over for you.

Once the game ends for everyone, the person with the most points wins.

Like it? Think it's completely random? Well, that's what you get. I'm INSANE about the new Four Island.

Also, as a sidenote, I've modified the way that Pingbacks display here on Four Island. Instead of saying:

Someone has posted a link to this post on URL


It will say:




This makes much more sense, I believe. I'm still open to any Pingbacks! Remember, the test Pingback is still going, so continue to Pingback The New Four Island!

And, another sidenote, I've added a Top Commenters to the sidebar so you can see those commenters who are really.... commenty. However, it is a little disheartening to see me with 84 comments, and the next person down with 14 comments. That's a BIIIIIIIIG difference, and one that I hope will shrink. Pwease?

EDIT: Remember the downtime I talked about yesterday? Well, you can forget about it. Maybe. I don't know, but it seems a possibility that it'll be avoided. Just wait until tomorrow to see.

EDIT: Remember, feel free to play the Related Posts Game and posts your results here. I'd be happy to play anytime as long as someone else does.

Sounds like a fun game

Smiley on June 15th, 2008 at 2:22:17am

looks... interesting. i will try. do we post our score here? or send them to you?

tamasys on June 15th, 2008 at 2:58:40am

Feel free to post your scores here. I can see this being fun. Just remember, don't cheat. Make sure you write down the posts you've been to so you don't accidentally go to one twice. And remember to count your points.

EDIT: I've decided that, due to the many players of this game, that if you want to post your scores for this game, post it as a reply to this comment. More specifically, read the comment inside. Thanks!

My score is 7 The Related Posts Game Flash Game Highscores Tetrgi - The Interpreter Tetrgi 1.5/2.0 Poll, Tetrgi and SpamAssassin Delayed by Xidet With 50% more randomness!

tamasys on June 15th, 2008 at 3:52:39am

Wow, I managed to get 13.

  1. The Related Posts Game
  2. Pingback Support
  3. The New Four Island
  4. 50-50 Chance
  5. Fourm Poll
  6. Fouripedia
  7. Domain Integration
  8. Colon 8080
  9. Back Again!
  10. WikiPINia and Genres
  11. The 4th Poll of the Week has finished!
  12. Project Lofofo
  13. SimpleBlog

Whew, that was going on for so long, for a second I thought I was going to get 23 points.

Hatkirby on June 15th, 2008 at 3:58:00am

I played it and went from "We Love KFM to With 50% more randomness". I lost count of my score though.

Smiley on June 15th, 2008 at 4:26:20am

Yep, well, "With 50% more randomness" is a known game-loser.

There's no point in playing if you don't know the score, so we'll just say that I won today. That is, unless anyone else plays and beats me before tomorrows post comes out. (At 12:30, as usual)

....POOP. I just realized..... Look at the two digits in the middle of that time, 12:30. 2:3. Remove the color. 23. GAH.

If anyone else wants to play tomorrow, I will too. I'll play any day as long as someone else plays too.

EDIT: Wait a minute, Smiley. The 50% randomness post isn't a related post of We Love KFM! How'd you do that?

Hatkirby on June 15th, 2008 at 4:30:30am

if you are clever, you can see which things don't work and avoid them

tamasys on June 15th, 2008 at 6:20:10am

I know, some are obvious. I really should have seen SimpleBlog coming, and 50% randomness isn't a string likely to be found in any other post. Another bad post is Fuhsdiufgsadiufgaisfioas.

And also, by the way, the email test worked. 8D

Hatkirby on June 15th, 2008 at 6:23:05am

Guess what, I managed to get 1!

  1. 1. How to Increase Productivity by using Google Reader
  2. 2. Fuhsdiufgsadiufgaisfioas
Smiley on June 27th, 2008 at 2:22:43am

Um, Smiley.... Your ordered list is.... um....

Anyway, I'm not even going to try to play today as today's post (The Last Goodbye) has no related posts, and the next most recent post (How To Increase Productivity by using Google Reader) has only one related post, a know game loser (Fuhsdiufgsadiufgaisfioas).
