maybe after 24 hours of an unguessed still, someone can pick it up and post a new one? (or should it be 48?)

have any other than boober's last gone unguessed yet?


I think Boober's is the only one going right now. Personally, I think the number of hours one should have to wait on an unguessed still should be shorter, to keep the game moving. Like six or 12 hours.

I have one on the previous page that no one has gotten yet. I put the answer in a spoiler tag.

I've been trying to think of movies that aren't too obvious, but also not too obscure. Not easy.

but if it's 24, then everyone who checks once a day can get a chance to guess. (if there are 3 games going, technically it's going faster, even if that one game is at a stand-still.) honestly, i'd feel crappy if i had a still up for only 12 hours and it was dismissed just out of desire to make the game move faster. it's not like we're in a chat room. it's a forum. :-) we can have more than 3 games going at once if you prefer.

There are more damn rules in this game than in cricket. When do we break for tea?

Why not just let people post when they can since the Aussies and the Europeans live in the future? Just make it clear who you are responding to when you guess so that it doesn't appear that you are bonkers.

Soviet tank crew lost in Afghanistan as their commander loses it. Das Boot in a tank, more or less.

I hope y'all aren't just googling these... 8)

I haven't been googling! is that an option?

the beast of war?
I saw it a million years ago, and that sounds like the plot, but the ambiguous tank shot makes me doubt myself.

The Fall. That was a pretty good one, too.

This thread is impressive. I have not recognized a single photo. It's true I haven't seen most of the movies, but I didn't even recognize the ones I'd seen!

Okay, the hint on that one is that "HALLO MAMA" is not written in English. Check out the symbol under the yellow star on the nosecone of the rocket. Also, I like movies about Communism, especially the transitional time around the fall of the Soviet Union.
