  • The Mysterious Fantastic Picture Show

    Greetings to all, and welcome to my Mysterious Fantastic Picture Show!

    In this theatre, the game is to put up screencaps of any movie and have the audience try to guess which film it is! (Well, any movie that won't get you banned, of course. Exercise discretion in your choice, please)

    RULES:

    1. YOU MUST TAKE ALL YOUR OWN SCREENCAPS.
    Do NOT google images from a movie and use something that's easily found on someone else's website.
    Half the point of this game is to have fun using screencaps that you yourself took ON YOUR OWN.

    2. Don't hotlink to someone else's images. That's cheating, and bandwidth-stealers suck! Upload all your own stuff to your own photo-host.

    3. Have at least three screencaps ready. You can have up to five if you really want.

    4. Post one screencap at a time. People can ask for hints between screencaps if they want, or just keep guessing randomly.

    5. Make your screencaps a challenge! The first one you put up should be of a scene that's not easily identifiable: no main characters or give-away shots. The second one you put up should be slightly easier, and the last one should be the easiest to recognize.

    6. If you wanna be really snazzy, make sure you take a screencap of your movie's main title to show everyone when somebody makes the winning guess.

    7. Whoever guesses right gets to put up the next movie, or forfeit their turn if they want. If the winner of a round fails to put up new screencaps within two days of their victory, their turn is automatically up for grabs for whoever claims it first.

    8. If you don't know how to take your own screencaps, simply shove one of your movies into your dvd-rom drive and see if you have a video-player which takes screencaps that's already built into your computer. If your instruction manual fails to help you or your player simply doesn't take screencaps, just run a search for a free downloadable media-player that'll take screencaps; there're plenty out there.

    9. There isn't any ninth rule.

    10. If it all seems too complicated, just have fun guessing!


    HOW TO TAKE SCREENCAPS

    Windows Media Player won't do the job for you. I recommend downloading PowerDVD here, and following the instructions this nice person outlined for you here. I tested PowerDVD version 6 following that nice person's tutorial, and it worked beautifully.


    First movie & screencap for guessing:



    Start your engines, picture show-goers! AND GOOD LUCK!

    P.S. Transgressors of the rules will be obliterated.

        I think I know this one, too, and I believe you gave a clue as well.

            I love this movie!

            But I couldn't do a screen cap to save my life.

            Must be Fate...

              Yay, people know what movie this is!

              You can guess it and win this round anyway, Pezz! Just offer your turn to someone else instead.

                I don't want to say it either, because I'm not ready to post one. I like this game though, fantastic idea!

                  Thanks, SusieP!

                  C'mon, you guys! Just guess it and forfeit your turn to somebody else so we can keep the game going. :lol:

                            Ok, I don't know how to do screencaps, so I pass it on to whoever wants to go next.

                            BTW, that is an old movie by anybodies standards.

                              My laptop won't let me do a DVD screen shot. Boo. :thumbdown
