Game shows. One of the big genres of television. Big prizes, great contestants, and so much more. Serebii has not had a place to discuss those shows, past or present... until now.
Welcome to the Game Show Club. The place to discuss the winners, the moments, and most importantly, the games themselves.
1. All main forum rules, including club forum rules, apply.
2. Please try not to go insulting a bad contestant, bad format, etc.
3. I will allow thoughts, whether positive or negative, to be given on various shows; just try not to go overboard; see rule 2.
4. Try to keep text legible. It helps if we can make sense of what you're saying.
5. Keep discussion related to game shows, although since reality shows are in effect a subgenre of game shows, I will tolerate discussion about those.
6. If you are going to talk about a BIG event in a game show that has not occured yet (e.g. somebody wins a million dollars/pounds/euros/whatever), PLEASE use spoilers. Some of us would prefer not to have the fun ruined.
HOW TO JOIN
Please fill out the form below if you would like to join the club:
Favorite game show/why?: I honestly think a good sentence or two explaining why you like a given show should suffice.
Favorite host/why?: Same as above.
The founder of this club reserves the right to change these rules and the joining form as necessary.
We all break rules sometimes, but they can't always go unpunished. Thus, I bring you whammies. Break a rule, and you get one whammy. This can vary based on the rule broken.
Here is how the whammies work:
1 Whammy: Warning
2 Whammies: 2 day Ban from Club
3 Whammies: 1 Week Ban
4 Whammies: Fortnight (2 week) Ban
5 Whammies: 1 Month Ban
6 Whammies: 2 Month Ban
7 Whammies: Permaban
I will also post game show news as it comes up, and these can be used as grounds for discussion.
The first discussion topic (which, depending on when this topic is approved, could be game-show news related) will be posted if and when this topic is approved.
Thank you for reading through these rules!
