    Sorry folks, this momentous drawing popped up last night, which required me to spend extra time working on a whole write-up! Why, you ask?

    Because we finally have a winning character!!!

    Who can it be?!

    Congrats to @MerlinEmrys & @teddy_ruxpin for being our first ever BINGO CHAMPS!!!

    You ALL put up such a valiant effort, so I'm super pleased that we can spread the love and actually award wins to more than one player! You will both be receiving your prizes in the mail within the next couple of weeks - as soon as my newly purchased button making kit arrives! ;)

    The other players who chose Basil have still received Mickey Heads on their Bingo cards, so that everyone can end the round with a completed card to commemorate their participation in this historic event. :p Feel free to save yours, but I will definitely be hanging onto them as well, so you can always request yours from me at any time in the future if you so wish.

    I want to thank you all SO much for participating in my new little game!!! I certainly had a lot of fun, and I hope you did too! I was so thrilled with the level of enthusiasm that many of you expressed, and I really hope most of you will be able to join me again for Round #2! Sign-ups will begin in a few days, but before that, I'd love to have a little post-game discussion. I'm particularly interested in hearing about what strategies (if any) players employed to select their characters. When I first received your lists, many of you noted to me how much careful thought you put into your choices. I'm curious to hear what these thought processes were, and if you think you'll be adjusting your selection methods for the next round. Do you believe there's even any strategy involved in the game, or is it all just pure luck? (Obviously the drawings are up to chance, but I personally feel there are some minor factors that seem to influence players' outcomes...)

    I also would like to get a general consensus of how you all feel about one of the more nit-picky issues that has arisen, regarding the eligibility/classification of certain characters that could potentially qualify as having multiple "forms." For example, as Merlin previously posed, should Hercules and Baby Hercules be counted as two separate characters? And if so, how should we award Mickey Heads if one is drawn, but both versions were selected by different players? Personally, I'd like to have as many characters as possible available for future rounds, and I also really want there to be a "Disney Trivia" element to the game - encouraging players to think up alternative "forms" would definitely inspire creativity! For instance, although the Beast has already been drawn, perhaps someone will select Prince Adam for a future round...? (No more suggestions from me, though! I also feel that keeping "The List" secret adds to the trivia aspect, and makes the game more fun and surprising. ;)) However, I can see this becoming a heated issue - some people might make a stink over split hairs and feel ripped off if they don't get a MH because they chose a different form than the one drawn. Conversely, others might feel ripped off if the form they chose *is* called, but other players still get credit for it when they chose the other version.

    I would like to hear your opinions on this issue, and since I want everyone to enjoy the game as much as possible (with as little conflict as possible), the majority opinion is what I will go with. It will be added to the official rules, and people will just have to respect that decision if they want to play. I may create a poll if there's a divisive response, so that we can get an accurate number of votes. So please keep an eye on the thread in case that happens. :)

    I think that's all for now! Like I said, sign-ups for Round #2 will begin shortly, once we've finished chatting and have refined the rules a bit. Since spots were claimed so quickly in the first round, I will announce the official start date for sign-ups a couple of days in advance, so that anyone who wants to play knows when to pounce! Those currently on the Wait List will have priority access; I will PM you to alert you that the round is about to start, and you'll have 2 days to claim your spot before sign-ups are opened to everyone.

    Sign-ups are currently closed, so for the time being, please don't comment to claim a spot.

    Again, thank you so much to everyone who played - I can't wait to get back to the game and award more Bingos!!! :D

    In regard to your versions question, personally I think they should be different characters/picks. Especially when you think of things like the Evil Queen vs Old Hag, etc.

    Knee-jerk response on different forms.

    I think if the character's name changes, then it should count as separate characters.

    Eg: Evil Queen v. Hag / Ping v. Mulan

    And if their name doesn't change, but just gets an adjective, then no they should count as the same character.

    Eg: Baby Herc v. Adult Herc / Jafar v. Genie Jafar

    To that end, if two people have Hag and EQ, I think only the character drawn should get the MH, not both. Hope that makes sense.

    Woohoo! Congratulations, Sabrina and CJ!!!

    As for your questions...

    I wasn’t too picky choosing characters; it only took me a little while. I did try to limit myself to one character per movie (Dormouse from Alice, Mim from SITS, Alan-a-Dale from RH)... with the exception of Peter Pan, which would have been impossible for me.

    I also tried to stretch my imagination to include a few characters I’ve always appreciated that I thought might be overlooked by other players, like Eilonwy and Jim Hawkins. I should note that when the game started being played and when I looked at other people’s cards, I realized how many of my “favorites” I had completely forgotten about when making my list!

    As for your other question, I personally think a character in all their forms should count as just one. For instance, Yzma/Cat Yzma, Herc/Young Herc, Beast/Adam, Mim/Dragon, Mulan/Ping... Whether you age, level up, transform, or change your name or your clothes... You’re still the same character. I just think it gets too confusing when you allow different “versions” of one character to be listed separately. Like, where does it end?

    But that’s just my two cents, and I certainly won’t be upset whichever way you want to play it! This is your game, after all.

    One thing that might be nice is clarification on which groups of characters get counted all together and which are separate... I think you said if they’re given different names in the movie they’re separated - so like, Ariel’s sisters are separate but not the Lost Boys or Muses... Maybe you could make a note of that in the main post before round 2? Just so people don’t get confused like I did making their cards. :) But again, totally your choice.

    Really enjoyed the game - Looking forward to choosing who is on my second card!!!

    Thank you for all the fun.

    Congrats to you both! It was a lot of fun coming here and checking out the awesome posts and chattering away. I will definitely be putting more thought into my picks, as I had all my characters of one movie in a row, which certainly isn't helpful! And perhaps too many from one movie in the first place. I agree with Merlin on the whole double character thing - that way makes the most sense.

    Thanks again for a great game! I'll be back! Muahahahahahahahahahahahaha.....

    I like Merlin's logic. If their name changes they're 2 characters, if you just add an adjective (like old/young) then they're the same.

    I mostly agree with this.

    I think it should count as the same character if:

    ~ it is the same character at a different age (puppy Bolt versus adult Bolt, kid Carl versus adult Carl versus elderly Carl, etc.)
    ~ the character is simply wearing a disguise but keeps their same name or just doesn't assume a new one (Jafar as the old prisoner, Robin Hood as a stork)
    ~ the character changes their own form as part of their own magical abilities (Pain and Panic as the kids, Genie in all his transformations)


    I think it should count as different characters if:

    ~ they assume a new identity/name (Mulan versus Ping)
    ~ they are changed into a different form/being through outside magic or other forces (Jafar versus Genie Jafar, Evil Queen versus Old Hag)

    Put me in the same camp as what's been said. Hercules and Baby Hercules, shouldn't count as different characters. Old Hag vs Queen, or Ursula vs Vanessa are two different characters tho, and the stamp should only count for the one who is drawn.
