Post Box Office Seer - Potential Game - Screenshot Challenge
The idea cam from Arsi, basically a user posts a screenshot, and players try to guess what movie it's from. Here are some specifics about how it would be implemented, any feedback would be great, but I really need to know, would you play? Is this a game you'd be interested in.


The specifics:
- Players (meaning you or others) can start a challenge (meaning post a photo and let others guess what movie it's from)
- Challenges stay active for a week
- You can't see image for the challenge until you agree to predict
- Players can guess the movie associated with a challenge's image (obviously)
- Players are charged 1 point from their score to play, players can always play as they can't go below 1 point
- People who guess right split the points entered for the movie, the points get added to each players score

Other stuff:
- When looking for a challenge, you'll be able to see the % that normally get the creators challenges correct, giving you some idea how difficult it may be.
- You can browse expired challenges if you want, and the game will hide the answer until you ask to see it, but you can't predict it after the deadline.
- Images will be uploaded and stored on the site so they won't break later
- There will be yearly winners
- I may allow players to create sub-games of the yearly game where they can keep adding screenshots to predict and there will be leaderboards specific to the sub-game


What do you guys think? Would you play this game? Should it be what I make next?

It seems Eagle does not know why the last game ended prematurely.

I assume because Argos ruined it.

But I would play. It was a huge hit here.

Ill give it a try. I really liked the screenshot game but it was to hard sometimes. Too many old movies.

Yep, it would require some manual work to capture rare enough screenshots that an internet image search wouldn't detect, but not impossible enough to still be fun to guess.

Some people may cheat, most won't. If someone cheats, it's really not that big of a deal. For those that enjoy the challenge of guessing, it wouldn't impact them.
