    Ahha, there is another way to do it. I've always done it the other way. It is always good to know more than one way to do something.
    Hmm, what should this say? I'm thinking . . .

    Hmm not really, I think. I just have a vague idea how Simonīs game works though.
    The bag-packing game is a memory training one.
    The first person says "Iīm packing a pencil into my bag."
    The second person then has to pack a pencil and something else, like a brush, so they say "Iīm packing a pencil and a brush into my bag."
    The third one has to pack the pencil, the brush and something else.
    And so on.
    Game over is when someone messes up which of course has to be noticed by the others, which is difficult when the bag got heavy because of a gazillion things in there and no one remembers if the brush came before the pencil or after the comfort blanket

    Simon says works the following -
    There's a group of children and a 'leader'. The leader tells the group things to do, for example 'stand up' or 'sit down'
    But the group must only follow when the leader begins the sentence with 'Simon says'. Otherwise they are to ignore the command. Everyone who makes a mistake is out of the game, the last one left wins.

    That's the way I know it.

    We play this game here too. I just don't remember what we call it. I think it goes by many names. Sometimes it's done in song too.

    Notice I had to do a handmade quote in there too.

    Yes, that's it, exactly.

    It works like this:
    Click the "quote+" button if you plan to quote more people than just one person.
    Next you hit the "quote+" button under the post of the next person you would like to quote.
    Repeat if you want to quote more people.
    At the last person you want to quote click "quote", this opens the reply box with all the quotes it it.
    (Do not click "quote+" or "reply" at the last person to quote, that does not seem to work.)

    Too complicated? Okay.


    Step by step guide:

    Click the quote+ button for this thread.

    And now we can even quote others.



    Hrhr indeed it has something of the game. Not sure if there´s a "I´m packing my bag"-game in English speaking countries though.
    I´ve always been packing my bag with a pen and some paper so I can make a list with the things I´m packing in there.
    Quote Originally Posted by natt i nord View Post

    For those who don't know, the game works the following:
    Child A Says 'Ich packe meinen Koffer und nehme mit: Einen Stift' (-> I'm packing my bag and take: A pen)
    Child B says the same, repeats what Child A took and adds an own thing. So: ''Ich packe meinen Koffer und nehme mit: einen Stift, eine Uhr' (-> I'm packing my bag and take: A pen, a watch)
    Then Child A says this again, repeats what was taken until that point (watch, pen) and adds something again.
    Then it's Child B's turn again.

    As soon as the first one forgets something or mixes up the order the game is over.

    That made me smile.



    Yes, it's a hoot!!! The way I do multi-quoting, my last step is different from yours, but I'm not going to mention it and confuse anyone, because your way is just as easy.
    Quote Originally Posted by Finoriel View Post

    You can always open another practice thread "Multiquote for advanced learners - method II" or so or just tell us how you do it here. I´m sure everyone does things different and maybe some people like your method better. You never know.
    And inquiring minds want to know. Please? Seriously such hints kill me.

    Yes, that's right. I'll describe it in Finoriel's fashion. A lot of people goof this up by hitting the wrong "reply: button.

    ^ My padawans, no thread too small or too large to multi-quote, there is!
    Let the force flow through you and let go of confusion and feelings, you must!


    Hey Finoriel did you by any chance start this thread to help out LJ? *snickers*
    She had a lot of trouble in another thread!


    EDIT: Crap! There is such thing as a thread too big to mult-quote, IF it has over 10 images/smiley's! LOL I had to manually remove them!

    Aah okay. I got confused because I vaguely remember that some of my friends had a Senso (probably no one remembers this 80s game though) and some of them called it Simon... if memories are not screwed that is.

    I made it because it´s an unknown feature, a lot of people are challenged with and the mod-team eventually merges the row-posted single quotes to keep the boards tidy.
    So I thought it would be a good idea to make a practice thread where everyone can just try how it works. Also if someone is challenged with creating a multi quote we now have a useful thread to link. Much more effective than just explaining it every time the question comes up. Learning by doing so to say.
