 ................................................................................................................................. following up on previous post here, I will setting up an online blogsville group chat on the 28th March, so mark your diaries. I think this has potential to be...interesting, so yeah...let's see.

Here are the details, which i will update frequently, so refresh this page every now and then.

 The Game 

Source: Amazon

We will be playing the silly party game Never have I ever - with a bit of hopefully fun twist. If you are not familiar with the Never have I ever, here is a typical format via the video below. 

"The object of the game is simple, players take turns to answer highly personal and potentially defamatory questions" - Amazon.

The Twist / Contest

Here is the twist. The chat will be entirely anonymous, which means participants will sign into the chat room using any random blogger name that does not belong to you. For example, Toinlicious may sign in as Afrobabe.
Note: Your chosen blogger name should be as random and obscure as possible, because the aim of the game will be to unmask as many players as you can. I.e, the player who successfully identifies the highest number of real bloggers behind their chosen fake names wins. I expect the whole things should not go longer than about 1hour, depending on how quick we catch on.

The Prize
I will email a $$$ gift voucher to the winner, as my sort of mini blog give-away.

How to play 
The game will run in quick rounds, moderated by an anonymous participant. The moderator will call out a confession/topic/question for each round, which will then carry on into quick-fire responses by every player.

So, the moderator may start off with a Never have I ever declaration, then each player will respond in turn either affirming or denouncing that same confession for themselves, however making their own declaration a little more creative to hopefully mask their identity. After every player has made their personal statement, the moderator will hand over to another player to start off the next round of Never have I ever declaration.

Simple example
Moderator: This is round 5. The catogory is lush kisses. So your declarations/confessions will revolve this topic. Player 1 will start off

Player 1: Never ever have i kissed a man.
Player 2: Never ever have i kissed a girl on a sunny sunday in New York City.
Player 3: Never kissed at all.

So from the answers, you may likely guess that player 1 is either a guy or a lesbian, and therefore could be Duru Jnr masquerading as SisiYemmie. Player 3 is defintely not Duru ;)

Your answers have to be 100% truthful and realistic, but think carefully, as every player will be using your answers to work out who you are.
At the end of the game we will take turns to reveal each participant's best guesses. The person who correctly guesses the highest number of bloggers correctly wins. Simples.

If you have any questions, you can drop them into the comments box and i will try to answer them asap, that way the chat is not used up trying to explain rules and etc.

How to enter
Sign up in the comments box and go on to decide your chosen fake blog handle which you will use to log into the chat room. Keep your diary open at the decided date & time. You may drop an email address if you want a personal reminder closer to the chat date. You may want to have a reliable internet connection, possibly on a laptop.

I need to think these through properly to ensure i have covered every angle and simplified things as much as possible. Hence, the details, times and dates are subject to change until 'good-to-go', and also to allow for significant number of particpants signed in. I will hold off for a minimum of ten(10) confirmed players before proceeding. I will try to do some PR blog rounds over the weekend to quicken things.

So yeah, that's about it. See you at the Masked Ball....
