    Hello Everybody! I am planning on starting a CRCW (coffee room color war). The mods can help out as judges, as I also shall be. If anyone wants to sign up as a judge please respond. The categories are trivia (no looking it up please), facts about the coffee room, and many more (once I think of them :), So…. The three teams are….

    Blue: team of latte

    Red: team of decaf

    green: team of espresso

    Please choose a team and sign up ASAP!!

    Any “known posters” (popa, goq, Baal habooze, aurora, ZK, etc.) can be a high rank (general, commander, captain etc.). CW starts in 1 week!

    interesting,

    your spelling and grammar skills improved overnight.

    All of sudden you are out there creating new threads.

    I hope your name doesnt start with a J..

    I’m staying far and clear from any colorwar that has this clown (i.e. Mr. J. Troll) as a judge.

    To 2scents and Baal Habooze…..

    I have made my secret invalid yesterday on a different thread, and am now a regular poster, not a troll, not ZK, perhaps popa (jk), and I am definitely not a yiddish speaker only.

    This idea was presented as a ”mid-winter break from regular posting’ and I hope that many will join on.

    Signed, ?

    Methinks that this idea was conceived in “badness”

    So whats the first Q? And what team is yekke2 on?

    #1027414

    Well seeming that yekke2 Still Even Doesnt take a hint, and unfortunatly is Slow Entering Data as to who made those jokes.[nuff said?]

    I therefore find it obligatory to choose yeeke2’s team.

    Hello aHeiligeYid,

    This is an interesting concept…I do love lattes, but I would do very poorly on trivia that was related to Jewish scholarship (seeing as how I am just coming to Orthodoxy)…on the other hand, I may be a resource in the areas of classical music, the law, and animals (especially cats)…would any team want a member with such a patchy and quirky knowledge base? If so, I may be the woman for the job! 🙂

    Oh, it’s regular trivia, or Coffee Room trivia?

    #1027418

    Aurora- Probably many of the questions will be related to judaism, but I welcome anyone to team blue. Hop on!

    Hello Wisey, I hope that I may be an asset in some way…I will try hard not to be a liability 🙂

    So whos gonna ask the first q? Do we have a judge? Are we waiting for more players

    #1027421

    Do they have to all be trivia questions? I’m not good at trivia, but I’m good at logic games/puzzles.

    #1027422

    It seems that the game is taking forever to start so I will make the rules clear and ask the first question.

    Rule 1) There is no judge

    2) Each team in turn asks the other two teams a question

    3) First team to answer gets a point

    4) The topic for all qs is CR trivia (this seems the most reasonable, since any other topic would be unfair to some players)(I’m considering limiting it down to this forum since some of us don’t post on the “Recipes” or “Bais Medrash” etc. forums)

    5) Order of asking is Blue, Red, Green.

    6) All q’s must be asked between 6-7 o’clock so that everyone will know when to expect a Q and have an opportunity to answer first

    7) New players are always welcome but they must first declare themseves and the team they wish to join.

    8) A new player should join the team with the least players.

    9) Blue- Wisey, Aurora

    Red- Blueprints, Crdle

    Green- Heilige, Frummy

    Oh I forgot to say that if a question goes unanswered for a day it gets replaced

    First question – Who started the “Chill Room”

    Hello Wisey,

    I think that I know the answer, but I can’t answer the question because I’m on your team, right?

    Rule #10: The winning team shall be the team that wins.

    #1027429

    Heilige – I need you! If this is really just based on CR trivia, I’m not gonna be much help (although I WILL be waving our beautiful green flag and screaming in the background, “Red Fish, Blue Fish, We’ll beat You Fish!”)

    what team can i be on

    #1027431

    Wisey

    Breindy since each team has two people, just choose a team and publicize your choice so that we can keep track of you

    #1027432

    Since a while has gone by without an answer I will replace the question; Who began an advice column? (come on guys this is an easy one)

    P.S. Zeeskite started “The Chill Room” a year ago

    Popa, duh? (Btw frummy….. We Green We Mean We are the Fighting Machine..)

    Next q.

    Which thread was first to be published in the country Yossi and which was the most recent? 2 points

    Hello aHeiligeYid,

    I think it may have been Feif Un who began an advice column first — I just checked the initial posts in Popa’s thread, and I read Feif Un’s advice thread a while back.

    However, Wisey did ask “who began an advice column,” rather than asking who began one first, so perhaps either Popa or Feif Un is the correct answer. Or, if Wisey was looking for an answer that included everyone who started an advice column, then maybe the correct answer is Popa and Feif Un (anyone else too of whom I may not be aware?).

    Wisey, can you enlighten us please? 🙂

    #1027436

    Whoops, I forgot that Wisey was my teammate (sorry Wisey!), so maybe I should not have tried to answer — that was why I didn’t say ZeesKite as an answer to the first question from Wisey. Yikes! 🙁

    #1027437

    Wisey
    Participant

    Aurora- I didn’t know that Feif Un also started an advice column. I guess I should investigate more before asking a question. Try to answer Heilige’s question before team red, because I don’t know what Yossi is.

    Hurry up on my q. 16 hrs remaining

    It seems that this q. Isn’t getting answered can team green please offer another question

    #1027441

    As of the time of this post, what is the number of participants in the coffee room?

    #1027442

    I guess color war is over??? 🙁

    #1027444

    Can we get this started again? it would be the best way to get us out of this late-summer coffee room snooze-a-thon. I think we should have a 3 day colour war starting on Sunday, with the days in between dedicated to discussing logistics such as teams, judges , colours, and activities / contests. I think there should be a fun side to it as well as a yedios /torah side of it. who’s in?

    2bornot2b, these games threads don’t really work on a moderated site. (The proof is all the posts above…)

    But I’m willing to try! Who wants to start?

    2b wants to start Sunday. What will be the breakout this year? Maybe we should hack into YW and make some funny breakout?

    #1027448

    Maybe the breakout should be a rumor that PBA is joseph… sorry that idea is taken
