The Ghostly Gruel Game:
" 'Look Food!' said Ron.
On the other side of the dungeon was a long table, also covered in black velvet. they approached it eagerly, but next moment had stopped in their tracks, horrified. The smell was quite disgusting. Large, rotten fish were laid on handsome silver platers; cakes, burned charcoal black, were heaped on salvers; there was a great maggoty haggis, a slab of cheese covered in furry green mould and, in pride of place, an enormous grey cake in the shape of a tombstone, with tar-like icing forming the words,
Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington
died 31st October, 1942."
Parties thrown by the living are filled to the brim with luxurious foods that make your eyes glaze over (like those yummy doughnuts you love) and your mouth water. It's often a perfectly acceptable courtesy to bring along some scrumptious food to social gatherings; maybe that flavoursome quiche that your grandma taught you how to make when you were young, or those legendary brownies that people drool over all around the world; what ever it is, you turn up with your yummy dish to all the parties you possibly can. And that includes to Sir Nick's Deathday Party!
Yet it dawns on you. All these freshly cooked goodies are going to hurt the ghosts feelings. They can no longer savour the delights of taste like the living can. Something simply must be done...the food must be ghostified, as it where. That is what this game is.
How to play:
* The person above you will finish their post with a delicious food that they've brought to the party.
* In your post, simply swish your wand and change that dish to a ghost friendly food.
* Then end your posts with a food the living love. It can be a simple item of food, a dish, a full on meal, whatever you like.
* Something like...
[Person 1]"To the party I shall bring: Sunday roast, with all the trimmings."
[Person 2]"With a swish of my wand, the 'Sunday roast, with all the trimmings' becomes dried out chicken, with shrivelled up vegetables that have smushed into one lump, all covered in a thick, tar like, substance (presumably the after effect of the gravy).
To the party I shall bring: Strawberry trifle."
[Person 3]"With a swish of my wand, the 'Strawberry trifle' turns a putrid shade of green, and lets off a rancid smell.
To the party I shall bring: a selection of chocolate frogs."
To start the game:
To the party I shall bring: a plate of mini pizzas.
