It’s that time again. Time for a new season of The Amazing Race and therefore a new season of Be the Amazing Racer! Come all ye newbies and past players!
What is this “Be the Amazing Racer” game, you may ask. Well, it's a role-playing game invented by the lovely and talented Angelfood some years ago. You sign up to “speak” as one of the contestants.
Here is the current Survivor version.
Be funny, be snarky. Bash ‘til your little heart’s content. No-one wins at the end, so there’s no competition. Do you think you know what was going on in a Racer’s head when say, he kept walking away from Phil during an elimination? Or when she got stuck doing all the guy tasks? Post it here!
1. Casting: Sign up for a Character from the show to speak for/represent (reply below). One spot per character - first come basis. You may not be someone already taken or reserved. I try to be fair and work it out if there is a problem.
2. Please post at least once a week/episode, at least until your team is eliminated, after that - optional, you may still add comments. If you're going be out just send me a PM. If you miss 2 weeks without notice, I will have to reassign the character.
3. Sign the bottom of EVERY post you write with your Racer’s name or picture. Characters are difficult to keep track of. I will make up sig pics.
4. Speak as your character would speak, and speak for them. Share your character's inner thoughts about what happened in the episode, and what they think of the other Racers. Praise, tease or bash away. Be funny.
5. Have fun, this is not for SERIOUS bashing. Also, be careful not to post any big spoilers (like who is going). Don't bash other players personally.
6. If your character is eliminated, you get the privilege of writing your own "final remarks", so PLEASE DO. You are encouraged to continue to post from Sequesterville.
7. If your character wins, you win.... the coveted title of Be the Amazing Racer Winner and that is all.
8. Anyone not signed up as a character/Racer, is still invited to make comments about the characters or about posts, just please do not speak as a character - just be a cameraperson, taxi driver, menu item, etc.
By all means PM me if you have a question or whatever. Feel free to suggest your own tag line.
