In the main Co11age thread, I mentioned Don't Get Got, a metagame involving players having to complete six missions without being "got". I'm keen to have this running in the background as I think the Cottage environment is ideal for it.

My set has eight wallets, so I'm looking for seven others willing to take on these challenges. Looking at the game spreadsheet, someone else also has set so there's plenty of additional opportunities to take part. but these are just nice things to hold the tasks in.

So, if you want to play, please register interest here. I don't think I can make up the wallets of tasks beforehand without spoiling it for myself, and I don't fancy running back and forth fetching the game as people arrive, so I'm proposing dropping tasks into envelopes for everyone ahead of time without looking at them myself (Scout's Honour and all that) and handing those out.

The game, for each participant, will begin 30 minutes after getting their envelope. This gives players enough time to put the tasks into the wallet and have a think, whilst everyone else forgets that someone has just started.

Rather than have set game end, the finish will be when you decide to leave. I'm in no rush for return of the wallets, and this way it means I don't have to wake everyone up on Sunday morning just because I want to go home. When you decide to leave, take a photo of your successes and failures and afterwards post it here alongside a description of your experiences. The winner will be the person who completes the most tasks!

Remember, just like Icing, you are still playing the game even if you don't have a wallet. If you think someone is about to complete a task, you can ask "is this for the game?" and if so they must confess and fail the task. But just remember that it'll get tedious pretty quickly if everything everyone does gets that response, so try to keep to the spirit of the game and only challenge if you're at least 73% sure.

That said, everyone on BeeX is excellent enough to respect everyone's boundaries, especially with regard to their own Covid safety precautions, but if the thought of this game makes you uncomfortable, please let me know and I'll ensure you are outside of it. Nothing I've seen or heard about the game suggests the challenges are in anyway cruel or humiliating but let's not be dicks. Everyone with a wallet can mulligan a task ahead of time if they feel it is in anyway immoral, discomfiting, or fattening.

So... who wants to play?

Super sneaky Dave is in!

The player limit is only because it comes with a set of wallets that allow you to see your tasks and then flip each one to "Failed it!" or "Nailed it" as required. No reason why we can't create alternative solutions if we go over, but as someone else has said they're bringing it that expands the number of wallets.

You definitely can! The wallet is just a nice accessory, and there's plenty of cards so if we don't get the second set we can find a way.

Great stuff!

I've put up a player list in the first post. Anyone else?

I've found three old railway ticket wallets that should be able to hold the cards so will be bringing them.

Remember: even if you're not on the list, you're still playing* and can challenge anyone with "is this for the game?" if someone's behaviour is suspect.


* Unless you really don't want any part of it

If I start running around screaming while naked. It's not part of the game. It's just normal.

Genuinely surprised this is yet to happen at a cottage (that I've attended) tbh.
