  • Skywatch Game 2018 Edition

    The Skywatch Game is open for guesses for 2018! Below are the guesses carried over from the 2017 pinned post.

    As in previous years, if there's a new announcement of a project by JMS from a good source (JMS hisownself, Variety, Deadline and the like) the *closest* guess will win a Fabulous JMSnews Prize. Now, since announcements seem few and far between, we're going to make these changes this year:

    First, the *closest* guess will need to be within 14 days of the announcement.

    Second, I've chosen nine random dates (by the scientific method of closing my eyes and making circles on a calendar) through the year and if anybody guesses that exact date, they'll win a Fabulous JMSnews Prize.

    12/29/2017 - DeMonk
    12/31/2017 - Looney (Yes, this ends up with 4 so if Loney wins, one will be forfeited)
    1/1/2018 - Babylonlurker
    1/17/2018 - Melanie
    1/25/2018 - DeMonk
    2/2/2018 - Babylonlurker
    2/11/2018 - DeMonk
    2/15/2018 - Kraig
    2/25/2018 - Melanie
    2/27/2018 - B5-Stefan
    3/1/2018 - B5-Stefan
    3/4/2018 - B5-Stefan
    3/11/2018 - Melanie
    3/17/2018 - Phazedout
    4/6/2018 - Looney
    6/17/2018 - Kraig
    7/10/2018 - Kraig
    7/19/2018 - Looney
    7/21/2018 - Looney
    7/29/2018 - Phazedout
    8/16/2018 - Phazedout

    Thanks for playing, folks!

    And we have a WINNER!

    1/17/2018 - Melanie

    wins because publishing of JMS' Autobiography "Saved by Superman" was announced today
    https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/...y-15-2018.html

    Or published today - the article is dated the 12th - but that doesn't change the winner.

    Melanie, if you'll PM me your address, I'll send out a Fabulous JMSnews Prize!

      Just thought I'd bring this back to people's attention since JMS said that he hopes to be able to talk about some "big stuff" in the next couple of months.

      Here's the current list:

      7/10/2018 Kraig
      7/19/2018 Looney
      7/21/2018 Looney
      7/29/2018 Phazedout
      8/16/2018 Phazedout


      Also, folks, I recently had one of my Fabulous JMSnews Prizes returned to me after many months. Please note that if you're only playing for fun and don't want a prize, my feelings won't be at all hurt. All I ask is that you don't put me to the expense of shipping all over the world if you're not going to collect the prize.

        Well I would never do that to you Jan. Better to be safe and just give me every day for the rest of the year.

        BTW, I do have an open date now so if you are not going to give me every day for the rest of the year I will take 08.01.2018.

          Aug 1 it is, Looney (ignoring the first paragraph...)

                            Has there ever been a worse Game Mistress than I am? Sheesh! We foung out an official date when JMS' autobiography would be coming out (as well as the changed title) on August 26. Did your Intrepid GM think to look for a winner of the Skywatch game until - like, right now? NO! She didn't!

                            Closest guess to Aug. 26 was:
                            8/30/2018 Kraig

                            So if you PM me your address, I'll put together a Fabulous Prize for you, Kraig!

                            And apologies for the lateness....

                              The world must be ending, because I usually never win anything!

                              Thanks, Jan.
