movie game

Okay, this will be fun. Conan and I play this on trips.

Here's how you play...

I give you up to 3 clues to a movie, you guess. Simple.

My clue can be a quote from the movie, a piece of the plot, a character description. Whatever.

If you know the movie, share your guess, with the movie's FULL title in the comments. Make sure you leave your name if its anonymous.

If nobody gets it right by Monday, I'll give another clue. If nobody guesses it still, I'll give one last clue on Wednesday, and admit I'm not very good at this game.

However, if one or more of you guess it right away, I will accept defeat and pick a winner at random from the correct answers on Monday, March 30. HOORAY! For the winner.

I can't show you what you win, it will give away the movie. I know that's not much motivation to play, stop complaining. If you know the movie, you're a fan, and you'll like the prize. If you really don't like it you can sell it on ebay. But it's cool, I think.

Each time we play, the prize will have something to do with that movie. And be cool. Promise.

Oooh, I love games.

Okay, here's the clue:


"page three-hundred and ninety-four"


hmm. that may be too easy. All right...go.

UPDATE: all right already, i see the flaw. if one person guesses it right, everyone else can cheat and give the same answer. That's not fair to the one who was right first. I could just have you email me your answer, but that's no fun. I could just say the first person who gets it right wins, but that's not fair for the ones doing yard work. So...there will be TWO prizes. One for the first person to answer correctly, and the other picked randomly...from correct answers...honest answers. Confusing? Yes. I wouldn't do it any other way.

Is the movie Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban? (I saw your blog on Alice's blog and I check it practically everyday, I luv it) P.S. We used to live in TN, I met you at a party at Golds, I don't know if you remember me...

I was thinking that it was The Davinci Code ...but mind you I can't remember a movie two minutes after watching you.

I think that Shannon is right! It makes perfect sense that you would start with Harry Potter.

And, I have to tell you...I am amazed with your intuity of a game here...way to snag those readers.

Do you have to do EVERYTHING better than me?

I guess I'm disqualified because I heard what the prize was over lunch today.
