COINTEST: ACTUAL COINTEST HAS ARRIVED

Recommended Posts

This Round will be played "Jeopardy Style", and leaves a little more wiggle room for the creative players among us. Good luck.

 

For those who don't know what I mean by "Jeopardy Style" look up the Game Show

 

Alex, I'll take "New Hotels" for one Coin...

Our winner this time was drawn by Christy at a Coffee Shop in Willows, CA

Good research everyone, and some good guesses, and they were all along the same lines. I was being a little more Whimsical and Creative in this Round though. I guess I'm the only one who saw my own humor.

 

The Category is "New Hotels"

 

The Answer is "No Today, Yes Tomorrow"

 

A correct reply will be any question in that category that could be answered with that answer.

 

This is a Fun and Creative Round, which will require only your imagination rether than a lot of research. I thought I'd give you a break after that last Round. Have fun with this one.

A new answer has been sent and I do have to say that it is much less concrete than the first one and much more creative! LOL

Hmmm...I send an email with something, but I do not even know if I am on the right way! :ph34r:

Well..... :unsure:

So would my answer be correct then.

It IS the Holiday Inn Express, but I'm looking for answers more like...

 

Q. "Do you have any rooms available?"

 

A. "No Today, Yes Tomorrow"

So THAT'S what I was supposed to do. I confused myself and tried finding mention of a new hotel being built near Willows, California. I gave up and just decided to wait for the next round. :unsure: Yep, I'm lazy. And easily confusable.

As in many of the examples of the items being held to the fridge with the magnets...

 

"Today" = The present in general

 

"Tomorrow" = The future in general :D:D:unsure::ph34r:

The answer I sent in this morning was along these lines so I am assuming it is correct? :ph34r::unsure::D

I went so far as to email the Willows Chamber of Commerce and they were nice enough to let me know the hotel name.

OK, since I was so unclear when I posted the pictures in this round, and several players did some crafty work in coming up with the Holliday Inn, I've decided to include those answers in the qualified group too. A number has been drawn and the Prize goes to zoesbrother who sent in the third qualified answer and had the numbers 16-20. The number drawn was 20. I have a new set of pictures, but I need to pick the best ones and will post them after work.

Congratulations to Zoesbrother!! I never would have come up with the exact hotel that is being built I'm sure.....

Sometimes I WONDER if I just DREAM too much, or if what I DESIRE to create will ever actually be done.

 

In the game of ShutterSpot, one thing I would like to create (probably with the help of many other players) is a series of 50 ShutterSpots that each feature one State Capitol, but none of them are identified. Each player who attempts a find would first have to identify the State(just from a picture of the capitol Building), and then travel to the Capitol and determine where the Photo was taken from.

 

These Photos were taken around the Capitol Building in one of our 50 states.

See if you can tell me which one! (City and State Please)

You are all so quick! I thought this one would be very hard. I knew I should have just used one picture.

You just underestimated the power of Google! :laughing:

I usually Google before I post to be sure that it will return usable results, but this time I didn't, since I knew it could be found in a sea of images.

I may have been fast to reply but it was right before lunch and my stomach was calling.... Not so sure I was right.... but it was either take a shot or lose the opportunity... The capital building appeared to match but I did not confirm the liberty bell replica and it did not look like home.

Slight delay of game for work. It will be back soon. We still have at least six more rounds. There are a couple of players who sent in wrong answers in the current round, so if you were unsure, there's still time to look for a better answer.

hmmm i wounder if i was one of the wrong answers :sad:

There's no harm in sending more answers. Once one of your is right, you get on the list. Just don't send more than one in 24 hours.

Not sure who gets to play or if it is too late? but I sent you an e-mail :sad:

Anyone gets to play, and it's not too late. Remember that you can guess each 24 hours in case you were not right. Spend a little time reading past Rounds for some tips on research, and how to play. Welcome to the Game.
