A New Game: What Mini Am I Anyway?


Recommended Posts

Inspired by this post by Darsc Zacal, I'm starting a new game, "What Mini Am I Anyway?" Anyone can participate.


The idea seems to be to see if you can identify a miniature from its silhouette and possibly some clues.  Thematic groups are not required, but can add to the fun.


This is the image that spurred the idea:



Clues:  This is a party of PCs in a game loosely (very loosely) based on White Wolf's World of Darkness.  Two figures are from Reaper; I mentioned the sources of two of the other figures on these forums last month.  One figure has been modified by the removal of a weapon.


Players are encouraged to identify the figures by company, name (if any) and SKU number (if any).  Prizes are, um, the respect of your awesome detectoring skills and "Likes".

Based on my experiences in other forums that liked to play "guess the 'x'" games, I have a suggestion: try to keep the focus on only one item at a time.  This has two advantages.  Firstly it will help keep everyone on task rather than having multiple partial answers.  Secondly, it allows you to set a "rule" that the person who guessed correctly is then the person who gets to post the next picture.  It turns the thread into a cycle where someone posts a pic, other players guess what it is, the person who posted the image declares who was the first successful reply (or posts a clue if no one gets it), and then the winner has 24 hours to post a new pic of guess the mini/sculptor/painter/etc.


If you like competition you can assign a point to the winner of each round and keep a running tally.  After awhile someone will have bragging rights for their mini knowledge.

Assuming that there is actually some interest in playing a game like this, I'll point out that by this time the players need a hint.


Since I don't know the answers all I can say is - if you look carefully all of the minis have been rotated so that you are looking at their backsides.  #2 is an archer with animalistic legs & #4 appears to be wearing a short sleeveless dress.
