Zach sent me an email the other day updating me on the Chat Room. Here is what it said:
Hey Treasure Hunter,
There are a bunch of new events going on in the Chat Room that I thought would be good for a blog post on the Games blog.
Every Wednesday and Friday, we have a game called Slogan Off which is a game where I give a slogan and anyone playing guesses what company or organization it belongs to.
Every day, I host the TV trivia game in the chat room. Right now, if anyone plays TV Trivia, they will be entered into a drawing for a Kodak Photo Mousepad. After there are more than 25 people in for the drawing, I will raffle it off. Anyone can enter as many times as they want.
A new thing that Jenneads and I are working on is a Mini- Gold Rush. It occurs every Friday evening and will ask many Gold Rush-like questions. I don’t have all the details, ask Jenneads if you have more questions.
I am also working on adding a few new games to the room such as Black Jack and a game called Acronym.
Of course, we always have Trivia running, just go in the room and type in !trivia.

This is great news, but while we are waiting I would like everyone to consider spending time thinking about
What Kind of World do You Want?
What kind of World do You want? Think Anything. Let’s start
at the start, build a masterpiece. Be careful what you wish for, History starts
The band Five for Fighting released a new single to attack
the top 40 charts called “World.” It is a great song and really got me
Should there be people or peoples
Money, Funny pedestals for Fools who never pay
Raise your Army - Choose your Steeple
Don't be shy, the satellites can look the other way
Yes, even the Steeple is mentioned in the song. So shouldn’t
we do something? Along with the song, a website was created called
“www.whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com.” The website has many videos submitted by
ordinary people who have ideas on how to change the world.
I heard about this website on Friday afternoon and I watched
all the videos on the site at the time.
The world is in our hands. What can we do? We are working
together to put together a video from everyone here to submit to the site. We
will also have to pick a charity.
I am working on getting more detail, but I think the charity
we pick gets the money raised by the hits on our video.
If you have a minute or two, put in the comments What kind
of World you want and we will work on the video that will be posted here and on
whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com as well.
If you have a video, you can email it to me at sm.TheDish@gmail.com and we will add it
