Message Boards

There are lots of these "about me" or "get to know each other "games going around, and I really like them. But I have noticed they often have some personal questions some people may not feel comfortable asking. So I thought of this game, since knowing people's opinions of things can help get to know them! Basically, you copy and paste the following list of items, and rate each item based on your opinion of it. If you don't want to rate any item, then leave it blank or delete it. If you want to add any items, feel free! [Edit: I've decided to add multiple sets of items, so it can be more interesting. If you want to make a set of items, PM me them and I'll add them to the discussion!]

Some ways to rate the items: 

  • Faces... D: [you hate it], :( [You dislike it], :| [You don't have a strong opinion], :) [you like it], :D [You love it]
  • Numbers... 1-5 {one being you hate it, to five being you love it}
  • words or symbols...  For example: Meh, nope, useful, <3, <3333333, etc.
  • Or you can just describe why you love/hate of the item using sentances.
