(Shiori's Amazing Riddle Raid!)
"Saji! Chell! Shohei! Tamao! I've got a question for you..."
"If you wish..."
"What sport do you never want to play with an elephant?"
"Can you repeat the question?"
"I think I'd like to phone a friend..."
"Oh! I think I know this one..."
"Aw...I hadn't even finished dialing your number yet..."
"Wait, you were really callin' her? She's right here!"
"Tamao? You're on the spot!"
"The answer is...Squash! ...Yes?"
"Ha! I get it..."
"Bingo! You're right on the money!"
"Nice, Tama-chan! ^ ^"
"So what's with the riddle-ness, anyway, Shiori? Just get the urge to tease our brains a bit out of the blue?"
"Yep! ...Nah, just kidding. It's because today's the 6th Day of our 12 Days of Christmas Celebration, and that means that it's time for my Amazing Riddle Raid! A contest of riddles and mysteries to deepen the suspense surrounding the holiday! ...I'm not entirely sure this is a 'seasonal' event in nature, but at this point it's kind of tradition, so..."
"That's a familiar theme, tradition."
"All right, then! If it's a tradition, then I'll go first!"
"Technically it'd be Tamao's turn, Chell. You have to get it right to get to ask the next riddle..."
"Ah, sh*t. I'm no good at these brain teasers!"
"I used to do a few of these in the magazines while my mother would have me waiting before shoots, so...I'm not bad."
"I'm ready for the challenge!"
"But you weren't even close on the last one, Saji..."
"That's what makes it challenging!"
"I can't tell if he's embracing the challenge or just in denial..."
"Is it really embracing the challenge if your answer is to phone a friend?"
"All right, come on then, Shiori! I'm actually getting a little fired up for this..."
"*smiling* I rarely see you excited like this, Tama-chan...all right, then, let's do this together!"
"You're just saying 'together' so you can ask her when you can't get it right!"
"You can rely on me, Saji-kun!"
"And with that...let the Riddle Raid begin!"

*~::Christmas Question #2 - What do you want for Christmas?!::~*
"What do I want for Christmas? That's kind of a loaded question to ask so early, isn't it? But...well, I guess if you don't say it aloud then nobody will know what to get you. ...Chell, what would you like for Christmas this year?"
"Me? Ah...well, sh*t...I guess a commuter pass from Aoyama-Itchome to Shibuya Station to your neighborhood would be useful. Big Bang Burger doesn't exactly burst my bank on payday, and going full price on the train every time I have to wreck a groper is a wicked strain on the wallet. ...Oh! And one of those new COMP Station game devices that are coming out soon...that would be sick!"
"I can handle myself, you know, you don't have to follow me all the time. But...thanks, anyway, Chell. *smiles* I think for me, some new running shoes would be extremely useful since my old ones are getting pretty worn. If I had the money, I'd love to get one set of those ultra-rare, limited edition PF Flyers...they say that when you want speed, there's nothing better! ...Shohei, what about you?"
"Yeah, you, you big dork! What do you want for Christmas?"
"I guess...some new armor for the Metaverse?"
"Come ooon! You can do better than that! Something for you, not for Ozaru!"
"Then...I'd like to go to Electric Town...together, with you guys. In Akihabara."
"We could stop at the Maid Cafe! Yes! ...Uh, not that I've been there before."
"I definitely believe you. *Sarcasm Mode Activate*"
"I've never heard of that place...is it fun?"
"*small smirk* They say it's a place of dreams...though maybe not for me..."
"Dude, if you've never gone...you need to go, at least once! ...Is what I hear."
"I'd be happy to share some ikayaki with Tama-chan and you guys at the Beef Bowl Shop...but I guess that's not unique to Christmas, is it? Then, maybe we could all go to Destinyland together?"
"That sounds so fun!"
"Tamao...do you wanna ride in the teacups? *smirks*"
"That's...not it! *blushes* I'm not a little girl, Chell!"
"I'll ride the teacups. *smiles brightly* Sounds like fun."
"Really? ^ ^ Then...I guess I'll go with you..."
"Oh, bite me!"
"I won't! *nods at Saji* He might..."
"I won't bite you, Tama-chan. *blushes slightly*"
"Thank you, Saji-kun..."
"Unless you want him to, that is. *laughing*"
"*smacks Chell in the back of the head*"
"*still laughing* I deserved that."
"*laughing together with everyone* What about you, Tamao? What would you like for Christmas this year?"
"I... *glances at Saji smiling, laughing...at Chell and Shiori giggling together, and Shohei gently chuckling to himself at the side* I..."
"New running shoes? Two tickets to a romantic movie for you and a certain someone... *winks* "
"*glances just once at Saji...and smiles softly, happily* I think my wish was already granted, actually. *pauses* ...Though if you did happen to have those tickets..."
1. The Game begins when Shiori posts the first riddle in this forum. The object of the game is to be the first to correctly answer the riddle.
2. When successfully answering a riddle first (and the answer is confirmed as correct), you will then be asked to post a riddle of your own for others to answer. You must do this immediately after answering correctly, in a separate post. If you take too long to post your new riddle you may be disqualified in the interest of fairness.
3. When answering, you must include both your answer and the CHARACTER who is answering the riddle.
4. The game will end on New Year's Day, or at a later time (all will be informed if the time is moved ahead of time).
5. Whoever has answered the most riddles at the end of the game, and whomever is the last one to ask an unanswered riddle, will receive the Grand Prize and the Special Prize respectively!
6. Riddles are encouraged more so than brainteasers. The contest is more for fun than research.
7. More rules may be added as required.
Enjoy the game! And Merry GUILDMAS2017!!
