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!!December 21, 2012 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #1027400
Any “known posters” (popa, goq, Baal habooze, aurora, ZK, etc.) can be a high rank (general, commander, captain etc.). CW starts in 1 week!December 21, 2012 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #10274012scentsParticipant
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..December 21, 2012 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #1027402BaalHaboozeParticipant
I’m staying far and clear from any colorwar that has this clown (i.e. Mr. J. Troll) as a judge.December 21, 2012 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #1027403
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.

What do you mean with your regular posting? are you a regular poster?
under which name were you posting?December 21, 2012 4:19 pm at 4:19 pm #1027405
No previous names. But I am we’ll associated with the coffee room.December 21, 2012 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #1027406achosidParticipant
Pretty stupid thread.December 21, 2012 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #1027407
@achosid, this is coming from a guy who wasted four years on a stupid yeshivishe facebook! Go figureDecember 21, 2012 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm #1027408midwesternerParticipant
Methinks that this idea was conceived in “badness”December 23, 2012 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #1027409
I sign up for team blue. I don’t get what everyone’s problem with this thread is.December 23, 2012 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #1027410blueprintsParticipant
lets make this thing happen!!December 23, 2012 9:27 pm at 9:27 pm #1027411
Teams so far….
Green(judges squad): a Heilige yidDecember 23, 2012 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #1027412ChortkovParticipant
I don’t understand the problem – I am on whatever team Poppa is!!December 24, 2012 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm #1027413
So whats the first Q? And what team is yekke2 on?December 25, 2012 1:14 am at 1:14 am #1027414ShuychusMember
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.December 25, 2012 5:10 am at 5:10 am #1027416
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! 🙂December 25, 2012 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #1027417crdleMember
Oh, it’s regular trivia, or Coffee Room trivia?December 25, 2012 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #1027418
Aurora- Probably many of the questions will be related to judaism, but I welcome anyone to team blue. Hop on!December 26, 2012 5:50 am at 5:50 am #1027419
Hello Wisey, I hope that I may be an asset in some way…I will try hard not to be a liability 🙂December 27, 2012 3:36 am at 3:36 am #1027420
So whos gonna ask the first q? Do we have a judge? Are we waiting for more playersDecember 27, 2012 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #1027421
Do they have to all be trivia questions? I’m not good at trivia, but I’m good at logic games/puzzles.December 27, 2012 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #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, FrummyDecember 27, 2012 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #1027423
Oh I forgot to say that if a question goes unanswered for a day it gets replaced
First question – Who started the “Chill Room”December 28, 2012 2:23 am at 2:23 am #1027425
To wisey! Thanks for starting it up, and I hereby hand the reigns over to you! All hail reigning King!December 28, 2012 2:26 am at 2:26 am #1027426
I think that I know the answer, but I can’t answer the question because I’m on your team, right?December 28, 2012 2:27 am at 2:27 am #1027427
Will you still play with us though?December 28, 2012 7:51 am at 7:51 am #1027428TheMusicManParticipant
Rule #10: The winning team shall be the team that wins.December 28, 2012 1:56 pm at 1:56 pm #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!”)December 30, 2012 3:20 am at 3:20 am #1027430BreindyFeldman99Participant
what team can i be onDecember 30, 2012 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #1027431
Breindy since each team has two people, just choose a team and publicize your choice so that we can keep track of youDecember 30, 2012 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #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 agoDecember 31, 2012 12:14 am at 12:14 am #1027433
Popa, duh? (Btw frummy….. We Green We Mean We are the Fighting Machine..)
Which thread was first to be published in the country Yossi and which was the most recent? 2 pointsDecember 31, 2012 4:13 am at 4:13 am #1027435
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? 🙂December 31, 2012 4:17 am at 4:17 am #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! 🙁December 31, 2012 11:15 pm at 11:15 pm #1027437
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.January 1, 2013 2:13 am at 2:13 am #1027438
Hurry up on my q. 16 hrs remainingJanuary 2, 2013 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #1027440
It seems that this q. Isn’t getting answered can team green please offer another questionJanuary 3, 2013 1:50 pm at 1:50 pm #1027441
As of the time of this post, what is the number of participants in the coffee room?January 14, 2013 1:36 pm at 1:36 pm #1027442
I guess color war is over??? 🙁August 12, 2014 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #1027444To be or not to beMember
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?August 12, 2014 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #1027445SayIDidIt™Participant
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?
SiDi™August 13, 2014 12:02 am at 12:02 am #1027446oomisParticipant
I declare Color War!August 13, 2014 1:27 am at 1:27 am #1027447SayIDidIt™Participant
2b wants to start Sunday. What will be the breakout this year? Maybe we should hack into YW and make some funny breakout?
SiDi™August 13, 2014 2:14 am at 2:14 am #1027448To be or not to beMember
Maybe the breakout should be a rumor that PBA is joseph… sorry that idea is taken
