Hey all.

In Discord Tommy said:
Quote:
Idea for a game:
Take a screenshot of the recommended amazon items
And we
Assign it to a person here
Or like
A quiz thing


And I like the idea!

I think the easiest way to do it is to go here:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/yourstore/home

and take a screenshot of two rows of recommendations

choose any two rows
hopefully ones that can indicate it's you without making it obvious

then PM the image to me

and I'll run a game!
:classicsurprise:

Update:
My "two rows" idea was based on desktop, which shows about 8 items that way.

If you're on mobile, a simple screenshot of whatever fits works.

I guess the deadline is just "When do I have enough entries that this could be a game?"

...which is not now.

I will make sure to wait for yours. :trex:

Why not take one of your very own?

I can't find one that isn't either completely misleading or a dead giveaway.

Either is fine.

Having some relatively easy ones will probably make the game fun.

I don't really get why that keeps being a complaint (others said the same thing on Discord).

Also, depending on what they are like, maybe I will hack them up / make people guess based on just one or two items.

My rec's are all over the place right now lol. I do want to do this. I'll take a look when I get home and maybe take a couple of screen shots so they can be stitched together to form something coherent.
(partly this is because two other people use my account)

Everyone will have some amount of that.

I buy gifts through Amazon more than I buy stuff for myself.

I tried but I haven't bought anything from Amazon in years, to the point I can't remember my password, so I gave up. If you want I can try again, but it's not going to be indicative of much? Maybe that's good for the game...

Ha ha, yeah, probably... especially if people read this they will know to look for one that is entirely random stuff, which is its own challenge.

You could post your YouTube recommendations instead.
