The good but bad catch game

66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,622 Disability Gamechanger
I’m not sure how well this game will work out, it’s just a random idea I had!!

Basically you suggest something good that the next person can have but there has to be a catch. Then the next player has to decide if they want the good thing if they also have to accept the catch. Then they make their own offer up.

Example...

Player 1: You can be extremely intelligent but you have to become really ugly.

Player 2: Yes I accept! You will be really rich but you also stink and no deodorant will make you smell nice!

Player 3: No! You can......... etc............

    You can become invisible but you also are no longer able to talk.

    No, definitely not! I like talking too much  :D

    You can have the running speed of a jaguar but the neck of a giraffe.

    Hmm the next of a giraffe could actually be quite useful but I’m going to say no :D

    You can have the car of your dreams with a chauffeur included but you can’t drive it yourself :o

    I'll take car and chauffeur.  I'm ready to be a backseat driver!

    Yes I accept that :D 

    You can be the most intelligent person in the world at one thing but you lose all your common sense

    No, I'd rather be semi intelligent and have common sense!

    You can write like Shakespeare but talk like Joe Pasquale.

    No, my texts and emails would be too long and I might be sued for plagiarism.

    you can be the richest man in the world but unable to spend directly on yourself.
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,622 Disability Gamechanger
    Yes I accept that. I like to think if I was generous enough to others then they would buy me enough food/housing to survive that I couldn’t buy for myself.

    You can travel anywhere in the world and live in hotels without paying but you can never return to your home country.

    No thank you if I couldn't take my children with me, & I know I can get homesick
    You can have your 7 most favourite recipes cooked for you each week, but have to eat them for a year

  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 9,082 Disability Gamechanger
    Accept

    You can have a luxury 8 bed 6 bath house but you are confined to the ground floor
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,622 Disability Gamechanger
    Ha ha, sure that sounds like a decent deal!

    You can eat as much food as you want without getting fat, but you have to give up your favourite food.
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 9,082 Disability Gamechanger
    Certain no brainer

    You can go on holiday as many times a year as you want without paying but you can only go to the same lace everytime 
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,622 Disability Gamechanger
    Yes:smiley:

    You can become fluent in several languages but you have to re learn English again!
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 9,082 Disability Gamechanger
    Wouldnt go for this

    You can go back to your life before your disability but you would only have 20 years to live 
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,352 Disability Gamechanger
    No, I don’t like that idea

    you can paint like Rembrandt but never keep one of your own paintings or see one again.
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,622 Disability Gamechanger
    Sure thing I’d be happy with that one

    You can be rich but a news story will be published that you are a terrible person!
  • Cher_ScopeCher_Scope Posts: 3,311

    Of course, other people's perceptions of me are their business!   Give me the moola.

    You can go back in time but never return to the present day.

    I probably would do that. I would go back just 30-40 years or so. Not so long that the world is massively different, like medieval times, and still with decent healthcare and relatively decent rights for people. I’d also be fine for money because I would know what to invest into based on what is doing well today (Microsoft, Apple etc.) so could be quite rich and maybe enjoy some classic cars back when they were modern! Sorry, that was probably a more detailed answer than you wanted :D 

    You can do the perfect job that you always wanted to do but you will be paid minimum wage
  • AndyGTAndyGT Member Posts: 294 Pioneering
    No go with that.  For what the perfect job was (policeman,) it would take too much pain and discomfort that a minimum wage wouldn't  cover it.

    You can be a great sports person but always lose in the semi final
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,622 Disability Gamechanger
    My family member was a police officer and although it is a great job I agree with what you say. You have to put up with too much that minimum wage isn’t enough.

    Anyway, I accept your one! Being great at sport would come in useful in other areas of life!

    You will never have to do anything you don’t want to, like housework, but you have to give up your favourite hobby.
  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Posts: 4,010

    I don't have a main hobby, so that's probably a yes from me :D It's good to make yourself do things you don't want to do sometimes, though.

    You have a perfect memory, but you can remember and recall everything that's ever happened to you, good or bad.

    Accept! :open_mouth:

    You can drink as much alcohol as you want but....you will never get the “fun” sedative affect of alcohol.
  • AndyGTAndyGT Member Posts: 294 Pioneering
    Accepted. I am not a big drinker anyway.   

    You get invited to a really posh dinner but are sat next to someone who really loves themself and is also rude, obnoxious and arrogant.
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,622 Disability Gamechanger
    Accept, I will just humour them while eating the delicious food and drink :yum:

    You can go back in time but you are not allowed to change anything, just observe.
  • Ross_ScopeRoss_Scope Posts: 3,091

    Accept, I wouldn't want to change anything anyway.

    You can make an appearance in your favourite TV show, but the show will end after your episode.

    I couldn't see the end of Dr WHO even if it meant not appearing in it
      A shame but such is life.  I give you time travel to go back and change one thing in your life but be aware of the butterfly effect and what occurs next....
  • chiariedschiarieds Member Posts: 7,891 Disability Gamechanger
    I accept, taking onboard a potential risk
    You can safely travel to the moon (& back), but must stay there for 6 months
  • AndyGTAndyGT Member Posts: 294 Pioneering
    I accept, as long as I have some sort of decent accommodation.   

    You become excellent in a field of the arts of your choice, but the press follow you everywhere and print nasty stories. 
  • Cher_ScopeCher_Scope Posts: 3,311

    Scope community team

    Oooh no, I couldn't do with being harassed.  I'd be secretly excellent instead :D 

    You have a personal chef who will cook your favourite meals for you everyday, but you can only ever drink tap water.

    Oh that’s a difficult one as I think part of the fun is pairing great food with great liquid!!

    I’d probably accept, though!!

    You can be absolutely fantastic, the best in the world, at video games but you can only play single player. :D
  • AndyGTAndyGT Member Posts: 294 Pioneering
    Hmmmm ..........  I would probably say no I prefer board games anyway and yes that shows my age. 

    You become an excellent chef but can only  cook stuff you don't like. 




  • chiariedschiarieds Member Posts: 7,891 Disability Gamechanger
    No thank you......the thought of cooking tripe, ugh!
    You can have any books you want, but are unable to read 10 pages in the middle of each book

    Oh that’s an awkward one...I don’t read lots so I think I’ll stick to buying what I do read and being allowed to read the whole book!!

    You are given a debit card with unlimited funds in it but you have to give up all of your current possessions, except the clothes you are wearing, including your house and start again!
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,352 Disability Gamechanger
    I accept, retail therapy at last! 😅

    you can be invisible for up to a half hour a day but the time is taken off your lifespan!
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,622 Disability Gamechanger
    Accept!

    You can eat your favourite food all the time (and still get the nutrients you need) but you can’t eat anything else :o
  • AndyGTAndyGT Member Posts: 294 Pioneering
    .ummmmm no go I'm afraid.  As they  say, variety is the
     Spice of life and eating my favourite food all the time I would get bored.

    You meet a star or sports person of your choice that you have always wanted to meet, but it is stuck in a lift and they are boring, self centred and arrogant. 

  • Cher_ScopeCher_Scope Posts: 3,311

    No thank you, I'd be gutted!  :o  It makes you wonder how true this would be if it happened!

    I'd take that.  If you know what goes into the bake you would have a pretty good idea what it should taste like, even if you couldn't taste it and you could  fib.
