the (completely original and not ripped off) pair up game

Post by Holymanm » Mon Oct 08, 2012 9:49 pm

i repeat, this is not shamelessly ripped off from tlc

everyone is paired up with someone else, myself if you are lucky, and each person in the pair has to recommend X amount of movies, of which the other person has to watch Y amount before Z (and vice versa of course). perhaps 20, 5, and a month or two from now. (details unavailable as of this, the proposal stage)

basically it provides an excellent excuse to watch movies, as no one likes to watch movies if they don't have to. and it removes the problem of having to choose between 500 movies each time. and is great fun for all. i think we have at least 8 people here, so it would be possible...

I'm aware of that game from TLC and could possibly see myself trying it out here.

I hate to be a bummer, but I can't imagine this working very well with me. It seems hard enough for us to coordinate a MoM around just one or two films. Maybe you can convince me otherwise though. I'm still trying to work myself up to the Reygadas film that Dustin recommended to me months ago, and none of us have watched Mysteries of Lisbon (though I keep coming close!) I myself am incredibly moody these days when it comes to watching film. It has to be the right film at the right time. I need to make (most) every film count, as I don't have much time in my life right now.

Also, is it a game? Like if person a watches more than person b he wins? Please elucidate if you are jockeying for my participation :lol:

i am aware of the questionable efficacy, but empirically it does indeed work! you have to fiend to complete the list so you can be freed from watching them so you can... then watch nothing else instead. somehow it works, in a way in which the MoM does not. perhaps it provides personal accountability, like pumping some iron with someone else there too. perhaps it only works for me when i don't otherwise watch much. only one way to find out!

so competitive! sometimes we can have a game which all participants win. or it could somehow be a competitive game too just to enhance participation (at the risk of making you hate your partner's movies out of competitive spite)

I was just asking because it was in the "Movie Games" section. Though I would probably kick your ass in non-competitive endeavors as well.
