THE OUTBACK ROAD GAME

NOW - this (as befits Australia) is a bit different than the "ROAD GAME" in the main forums, which goes by these rules:
The ROAD GAME
<hr style="color:#D1D1E1; background-color:#D1D1E1" size="1"> Okay now - these rules are very technical and complicated so pay close attention!

1) The player who has the first turn posts the name of a road, street, or highway.
(as, for example, ME )

2) The NEXT Player must post the name of a road, street, or highway that connects to it...
(for example: I-40 to I-15 AT Los Angeles, I-95 to exit 214, etc...)

4) The next player must connect to the last road posted...

3) If required, player must prove that a named roadway really does connect!



Clear as mud so far? Okay.

Now that is a plain old map connecting game - but to it I add this:
You must only add a road - or a stretch of it - that you yourself have driven

Got that?

~ and that makes all the difference in the world

Ready?

GO FOR IT!

*Whoever posts first NAME a ROAD in AUSTRALIA

WHAT? I can't do it from America... You have to!


The bottom line is this:
You must prove you were there
When the picture was shot!

Sound like a proper Aussie Challenge?


I'm still figuring out how to make a fun thing out of this all, but it does look promising....

Hmm, big continent over here and not many F250 drivers, you may have to modify the game. Eg, Name a town you've driven through and someone names another town with some sort of connection - could be road, rail, play on name, town with same name somewhere else, and keep that going.

OK, well I'm stuck cause I dont know anything about Perth or Coolgardie except I've driven through Perth in Scotland in a VW campervan.

Tell ya what - we could include beaches. Sooner or later you're bound to arrive at one...

(They chased everyone not on foot OFF OF the beaches in the USA. You have to be a lifeguard or a cop to drive on the beaches over here)

Good on ya BOTH blokes - I'd like to tell a short story right hereabouts...
(yeah - go grab a fresh one)

Now I live in the tiny town of Drummonds in the west end of tennessee (in the USA) as you see it on a conventional map. The only reason it claims to be here is that it has got it's own post office...

The reasonable way to go about finding it is to seek the Mississippi river in the gulf of mexico and follow it north. when you find Memphis, slow down.

Examine the slow left and then rightward bend of the river as it goes north. If it were a satellite dish it would be pointed at Drummonds.

To the east of Drummonds the roads divide, and going to the east you come to an area called "PECKERWOOD POINT TENNESSEE"


Now I ask you plainly: IF THAT WAS WHERE WE WERE
If I asked you to plan a route to the nearest PUB....


Are you telling me we would not get to one?





Funny about that - isn't it...

Found Drummonds and am looking at Drummonds Rd heading East - if I find Munford have I travelled too far?

I didn't mean it seriously - but if you find the dead end road in Drummonds (out of the three-way) -

My place is at the end of it!
