I was thinking earlier about another format. Walrus Squared. Here is how it would work:
You would have X entrants - and each entrant had to do one category reveal. Obviously you don’t enter your own category, but every contestant is in the same boat. Ideally it would be anonymous.
So, before the game starts each person lists their category and a few suggestions about what they like. We would have one awesome person act as a middle person to collect all submissions for each host and pass them on for the person owning each category.
Then basically each person does their reveal in whatever order we decide on.
- The hosting is shared, so it is less overhead for any one person.
- Since each person is nominating a category of their choice you are still trying to cater to particular tastes.
- It obviously loses the longer narrative of a singular host.
- A little more organization before the game starts (I dont think this would be too bad as I would probably write a template to try and make it easier)
Thoughts? Let me know if I didn’t explain it very well.
