    New game: Have I Got CarNews For You!

    Some of you may know the show 'Have I got news for you' on BBC2, well I think we can make a good game out of it. There are a few types of games:

    -The story behind the pictures (I post a picture of a car or a driver and you got to tell me why it was in the news.)
    -The odd one out (I post 4 pictures and you have to pick the odd one out, based on the news around the cars.)
    -The headline (I will post a headline of an article about a car, you have to guess what car it is.)

    Now I have to have a second person who wants to organize the comp with me because I don't have much free time to keep it running in the weekend.

    Some basic rules:
    -You know the answer, post it. If it's correct you get 1 point.
    -No more than 2 guesses on each item.
    -I will post a maximum of 2-3 items a day.

    Good luck and fun!

    Very well done...

    Current standings:
    whiteballz: 1,5

    Time for the 'odd one out'









    Guess what's the odd one out for 0,5 points and if you can give the reason, you get 1 point.

    True, but that's now what I'm looking for. Remember, it has been in the news!

    Jaguar is the odd-one. It's a face-lift, whereas the others are new models.

    It's not denial. I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

    Also true, but still not what I'm looking for...

    Or it can be the AC-Smart, because it still exists only as a sketch, the other cars are real. Or because it's a re-skinning of another car. Or Jaguar again, because it's the only one that's been officially prsesnted. The others still wait to be officially presented next year. Too many possibilities

    Or maybe the AC-Smart is the only 2-door car and the only convertible too. And the only one which its doors open vertically (at least in the sketch).
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    Ok, it's the AC/Smart... you both get 0,5 points...

    It was the AC because it's the only new car that changed brand/manufacturer...

    Current standings:
    whiteballz: 1,5
    go.pawel: 0,5
    Ferrer: 0,5
