I was going to guess that the author of 5 was Creamy but I just saw his comment above so it can't have been him.

So I'm guessing Selmiak.

Maybe...

Hmmm I've been thinking:

#1 Cassiebsg
#2 Gurok
#3 Selmiak
#4 Mandle
#5 Cat
#6 Danvzare
#7 Slasher
#8 (I saw the thing)
#9 CaptainD
#10 Hobo

Now tell me how wrong I am.

#4 is not my pitch, Stu.

I would say #3 is pure Baron or Ponch.

No sorry, I didn't even submit anything. I had an idea but didn't get around to write a proper pitch. But I voted for #5.

My guesses:
#1 Sinitrena
#2 Gurok
#3 Ponch
#4 Mandle (even so he says it isn't)
#5 Danvzare
#6 Baron
#7 Hobo
#8 Blondbraid
#9 CaptainD

Maybe in the next round Andail (or another host, if it changes) can post the names of all the people who submitted something. That should make this guessing part a bit easier.

But you must admit, it's you all over... (laugh) Cause I also thought it was something out of your mind (maybe cause of that joke game you made for MAGS ;) ).

I'm not going to try and guess, but I can reveal that I did have an entry, which I think you can probably identify almost entirely by process of exclusion.

That's a good idea, otherwise it's damn near impossible to guess.
You can cross my name off your lists, I did not submit anything.

Congrats to all the entries!! I am new member here so I can not match numbers to persons, as I still do not know the personal style of each one. I voted for #2, because an adventure with an academic setting is something that I would definitely check. I liked the ideas of #6 and #9, but the meta-games are not my cup of tea.
On the results, #5 + #9 make a missing pizza baker that the clues about his disappearance could be found on the pizza shop and the pizza slices!! :-D
I should have listened to my mother---I should have practised.

(laugh) I made that joke game at the last minute when that MAGS was going to be a one horse race otherwise...

Just wanted the honest entrant to have something to win against at the time.

I think someone else also ducked in and it went 3 ways?

Good times in any case!

I participated in this competition, but since I have only been active very recently, I don't think anyone would be able to guess my writing and idea style (laugh)

Well since it's over, mine was number 4! I've had that idea for quite a long time but I guess that's what it will stay as unfortunately...an idea! and yes he would piss off sensitive players...even more than the first game! :D
