Default Ready, Aim, Fruit - Join the Food Fight!   #1  
Ah, harvest season!

It's the perfect time to pick apples, dig up potatoes and rejoice over a mouth-watering feast. Friends gather together to... fight?! You squint at the invitation which brought you here. Splattered with stains, and smelling like taco sauce. Yep, that once white sheet of paper definitely has been through a few brawls already. So was all the talk of food just a red herring, and will you have to leave again with an empty belly?

A shady figure approaches you. "Shhh, come here! I've got the ammunition crates!" You walk over and see a box full of treats. For a moment you hesitate. After all your parents taught you not to play with food. But then with a splat! a black forest cake lands on your shirt. Ah well - might at least defend yourself. So you reach into the crate and grab:
  • 1 taco
  • 1 ice cream cone
  • 1 odd roll
  • 1 braided loaf
  • 1 pie

How To Play
Throw food at other users, and they will throw food back at you. Think of it as a game of Rock Paper Scissors. Except with munchies.

Each individual food can beat two other food items and loses against two others. We won't tell you what the winning combinations are, but if you pay close attention, maybe you'll be able to figure them out. If not, don't worry - there's also a prize awarded to the person who throws the most food during each round. Additional rewards will be granted as we see fit.

Use this form to post.
PHP Code:
[COLOR="DarkOrange"][SIZE="4"]I'm throwing a (food) at (user)![/SIZE][/COLOR] 
You can throw all your food items in one post, or only throw one and save the rest for later. That's completely up to you. However you have to give others time to react. Therefore you can't throw a food item at the same person twice in a row. After you've targeted at least one other user, you can splotch the first person again.


Can I throw food at users who aren't participating in the food fight?
You sure can - but keep in mind they won't throw anything back and so you might run out of ammo.

Can I throw something that isn't part of the round's official ammunition?
Yes, but it will be treated as random chatter and you don't score any points for it.

Help - I'm out of ammo!
To avoid this, throw your foods at active players. They will throw something back at you, and so the fight can go on (and on, and on, and...). But since we enjoy watching you douse each other in overripe pulp, occasionally a staff member will post a picture of a food item. Be the first person to quote it, and one food is added to your ammo pile.

How much ammunition do I have?
At the beginning a total of five. Then your pile consists of what you haven't thrown yet, what others have thrown back at you, and the occasional fruit or vegetable you managed to quote.

Do I need to keep track how many beans (potatoes/artichokes/...) I have?
No. You can exchange your veggies at the ammo box anytime, so if you want to throw nothing but green beans, go for it!

How long is a round going to last?
Roughly two to three days. We'll announce the beginning of a new round in this thread and switch your ammunition pile to a new one (yes, that means you can't save up ammo for later rounds - so get wild and throw it while you can!)

Don't you just love randomly being splattered with pie? ^^

Or other random stuff.

Quiet Man Cometh knows that sharing is key and hence grants Witchchylde a tasty appetizer of casserole corn. Fresh from the oven and with just the right amount of butter this could be the best thanksgiving side ever, but the grease made it slippery...

Meanwhile mdom feels the artichoke holds nicely in her hand - much too nice to keep, actually. Sure KittyBeary will appreciate such a treat, right?

Witchchylde quickly reacts with a small pumpkin, and while equally delicious, it turns out a lot easier to handle. Quiet Man Cometh catches the uncarved Nox leftover like a pro. Maybe a taunting face would have helped, who knows.

"Pie!" Derpy cheerfully scrapes the pie from his face and snacks on it.

Derpy may be small, but in the past this has taught him a valueable lesson: it's hard to see little things coming. So with a handful of green beans the tiny dragon prepares for a surprise attack.

mdom tries her best to dodge, but she just can't find a safe direction to evade the vegetable shower. Green beans everywhere! Perhaps attack is the best defense then. With a corn cob mdom tries to win back some ground. Derpy sees the corn flying and quickly evades to the left.
