the Countdowners In My Place game (CIMP)

Post by Matt Morrison » Sun Feb 05, 2017 5:48 pm

Heather came up with this great idea for a thread.

How many people from the apterous and Countdown world have you had in your home?

We decided that Michelle and Ryan are good candidates for being winners here. But really it's not about the winning, everyone should take part.

Our list is:
  • Michelle
  • Ryan
  • Gevin
  • Jono
  • Bayfield
  • Corby

Steadman only in the current home, although Graeme as well if all homes are included.

What about the reverse - Countdowner's homes I've been in? [CHIBIN] I got Jen, Hayfield and Gev. And Zarte's doorstep.

I like that, but goddamn don't confuse the issue - make a new thread.

I also think it's fair that if you move houses then your score does not reset. At the end of the day if part of the reason you move house is to get closer to Countdown people that you can invite around, then you've earned those points.

So you get a 2.

I'm pretty sure I remember seeing a picture of quite a few apterites in someone's house, like Lauren's or Amie's for someone's birthday celebrations. Had like 10 people or more in it I reckon.

Wow, that's awesome. I love the sense of mystery too, now that we have to sit back and wait for them to own up and claim the plaudits.

There was a gathering at Hayfield's once with a good few people. They might score well here.

Since I am the boss of CHIBIN, I have hereby arbitrarily decided that being in multiple houses for the same person also scores multiple points. I've been in two of Lauren's, thus two.

Is the C in CIMP a soft C or a hard C? I think hard. I think Heather would like it hard.

Jim Bentley, Gary Male, Jeff Clayton. Think that's about all. Nearly Jono and Charlie.

We'd prefer a reputation as antisocial buggers, but we've had the pleasure of visits from:

Andy Platt
Giles Hutchings
Graeme Cole
Jeff Clayton
Jen Steadman
Mark Deeks
Zarte Siempre

Loz can also claim Jen, Mark and I at her previous address.

The bar is set with 7. This is an excellent thread, and if anybody wants to come round ours that is fine. Invite obviously only extended to people who are not already on our list.

  • Deeks
  • Laverty
  • Garner

I don't know why I didn't comment on other people's input here before. I appreciate it all. Decent list from you there Mr. Murray.

Bayfield's little footnote showing that Lauren can claim 3 more than him should not be overlooked as it puts her on 10 like me and Heather.

Well, I have been visited at home a few times by Sue Sanders and on one occasion Dez Hazell. But I haven't had either of them, in my home or elsewhere, and anyone who says I have is lying.

Phil Makepeace I think puts you back in the lead. It really is a titanic tussle at the top.
