A Serious Waste of Time (Fun and Fast Game Threads)
Come join us for various types of games at A Serious Waste of Time ("ASWOT").  Puzzles, wordplay, riddles, and various IC and OOC games.  This is one of the longest lasting games on RPoL, always looking for new players to join the group.  Play as often or as little as you like.  Play as many of the thread games or as few as you feel like.

Some examples are:

Riddles
Puzzles
Trivia Games
Word Games (like making up the best fortunes for fortune cookies)
Quote Games
A "Lounge" to hang out in
Letter and Word association games...
And too many other types to put in this post!

These games are typically short posts whenever you get a few minutes and do not require long term commitments.

There's something for everyone at ASWOT.  We've had over 300 players over the years at RPoL.

Check us out here:  link to another game

Open to all ages.  Must bring a sense of humor, some wit, creativity, and maybe some virtual pizza.

Although our post count shows a measely 45,000 posts or so, our actual number of posts is over 400,000.  (We lost count a few years ago.)  We just keep editing it down for archives so we don't blow the server's mind. ;)


Come join us for some fun.

Re: A Serious Waste of Time (Fun and Fast Game Threads)
A Serious Waste of Time (ASWoT) is where many players come to post in mini-games or RP conversations between posting in their larger, roleplaying games.  It's a nice hangout while you have to wait for the players in your other games.

At last count, we had 442,378 posts at ASWoT (including the 400,000 or so that have been archived to avoid weighing down the server), and that only includes posts by current players.  I have no way of calculating the total with former players too.  That's a lot of posts, but it can always use more.

Come join us!

Bump, gods it was hard to find this

It's in the first post in the bumper cars thread.  Remember, no other ASWoT person may bump this thread until at least seven full 24 hour days have gone by since the last ad bump. :D

So there's this really fun free-form game called A Serious Waste of Time where we play a lot of word and puzzle games and otherwise sit back chat and enjoy the free form adventures we occasionally go on.  It's not really a game you can win at (well, there's the royalty thread), but if you're a textaholic and people just aren't posting to other games enough, come give this one a try.  I can't promise that we'll all be fast enough to sate your craving for the game to go faster, but you'll have fun along the way.

The game's been running for almost a solid decade now.  We've had many people come and go and many people stick around for a long time.

Some of the freeform adventures we've had:
ASWoT Regional Medical Center
H. M. S. Timewaster
The Good Ship Time Waster's Revenge
Time Wasters' Tundra
Mad Timewaster's Laboratory
The GOD Game
The GOD Game II
Time Wasters Bowling Alley
Time Wasters Dungeoneering Game
Time Wasters Green Room
TimeWaster's Hoosgow
Time Wasters League of Nations
Time Wasters Memorial Mental Asylum and Sanitarium
Time Wasters Public Swimming Pool
Time Wasters Public Swimming Pool II
Time Wasters Public Swimming Pool III
Time Wasters Purgatory
Time Wasters Restaurant
Time Wasters Restaurant II (Into The Pantry)
Time Wasters Restaurant III (the 13th floor)
The Infinite Pantry III
Time Wasters Theme Park
Time Wasters Time Clock
Time Wasters Time Clock II
Time Wasters United Nations
Time Waster University (You Time Waster U)

Conversation (in various forms -- you must follow the rules of the thread to chime in on the conversation, like every post must begin with the next letter of the alphabet in Alphabet Conversation):

Bragging Rights
Compliment the Insult
Didn't You Get the Memo

Re: A Serious Waste of Time (Fun and Fast Game Threads)
You know, this game is pretty awesome.  I just ran the numbers in the Cast List and we're only 40k posts away from 500,000 posts over the lifetime of the game.  People have come, and people have gone, and people have returned, and everyone has a good time.

Edit: by request, a lot of posts were archived then deleted off RPOL so the overall post numbers don't look that high. But the cast post counts don't lie.
