Eye-Level Entertainment's newest game, 'Flat Acting', will be available soon! In the weeks leading up to the release, we'll be sponsoring a Geek Gold contest to help folks get in the spirit of the game!

'Flat Acting' is a light family strategy game where players assume the roles of different movie genres competing to claim the best locations to get THEIR movie made! You accomplish this by moving 'actors' into different sets on the game boards. Different sets are worth different points and whomever controls the most points at the end of the game wins!

Each turn, you're asked to explain the scene that you create. Why is the sheriff with the musician in the alley? Who let the horse in the crypt? What does the priest want with the bag of money? Your answer can be a narration, a line of dialog, a bad pun, whatever!

This contest will test the BGG community to see who can come up with the best lines for scenes involving some of the actors from 'Flat Acting'! We'll post a picture and give the 'Geek community the opportunity to come up with their best lines for that scene. Post a response below. Also. read the responses and vote with 'thumbs' for your favorite! After a week, we'll close the voting and award 15 GG to the response with the most thumbs! (If there's a tie, we'll pick our favorite...)

This week's contest will run until 10:00 p.m. EST, Sunday August 9th. Submit your entries early to give yourself as much 'thumb-tential' as possible! Good luck!

This week's scene: The stylist and the hard-boiled detective in the spooky graveyard!

HBD: Miss Jones, what makes you so certain that's not Mrs. Appleby?

MJ: I do her hair every week and there is no way that's her. She wouldn't be caught dead in a beehive hairdo

HBD: Uhm...

MJ: Shut up! You know what I mean. I don't know who is in the grave, but it's not Mrs. Appleby!

Detective: I don't have a reflection. You know what else doesn't have a reflection?! I am one of the chosen! I bring the embrace of the night! I am sustained by the blood of my enemies! I, Hard-Boiled Detective Man, am one of Cain's cursed children! I...AM...REBORN! I...AM...DRACULA!

*queue spooky vampire intro-music!*

Stylist (with sass): Honey with hair like that no reflection is a blessing, not a curse.

Detective: "This case was different than most of my cases, see. Instead of the dame walking into my office, she asked me to meet her in the graveyard. Even worse, I wasnt sure she was really a dame, see. She might have been a diamond in the rough, but there was a lot of rough to see, see."

The Detective realised the only way he was going to get to the bottom of all this was to set his assistant to work on the manual labour.

Detective: "Sam, Spade!"

The Stylist: I know what you are. Look!
Hard Boiled Detective: I'm afraid it's true. I am...
The Stylist: Human, yes. You realise there is now no escaping? You must accept your fate.
Hard Boiled Detective: No! I won't give up. I won't let you win. (runs away)
The Stylist: Come back. I must cut your hair.

Detective: The APB was dead on, African American female with beehive hairdo, left handed and armed with scissors and a mirror. Distinguishing features...enormous cold sore on mouth.

Dective (V.O.): When I stepped through the soupy fog, hanging thick like cigar smoke in my office on a hot summer day, and spied the auspicious beehive of Mrs. Dumont rising sinisterly over the tombstones, I realized I'd been played for a fool. All the pieces began to fall into place: corpses with comb overs, bodies with bouffants, pompadours paraded through paparrazzi-style funeral parlours from here to Poughkeepsie. I'd walked right into a setup, a trap. She looked my way and I knew I'd only have a moment to act. I'd need think fast if I wanted to keep my life... and my buzzcut.

Mrs. Dumont: I knew you'd come, Mr. Marlow.

Detective: That makes one of us, Mrs. Dumont.

Mrs. Dumont: Oh, my victims always keep their appointments. I know you won't be disappointed.

Detective's Internal Monologue: "I think I should have paid Harry the Snitch more than $5 to give me the name of the new 'clip joint' in town. I have a feeling that if I *do* make it out of here alive, it's going to be a close shave."

EXT. A graveyard (spooky).

Hard-boiled detective (v/o):
The jury was in. The case was closed. This was the spot. Rain came down like piss after last call, but we'd neglected to adorn suitable clothing. Not that I had even an umbrella left after the divorce, bitch took everything. Bless her. Miss Smith was waving her scissors around like they were a checkered flag on a racing circuit. Why did she bring the mirror?

The stylist:
I said, are you even listening to me?

Hard-boiled detective (v/o):
Broads. Always so concerned about their appearances. Always so self-centered.

The stylist:
Look, mister, earth to tough guy, take these frickin' blessed scissors and remember that them zombies can only be identified if watched through the mirror. Are you paying attention?

Hard-boiled detective (v/o):
It was a shame we never figured out how to beat the zombies. Every clue lead to a dead-end, and every hint was a mirage, hiding an enigma or another puzzle. This could very well be my last stand. Jack Johnson, private eye, divorcee, father of two, man, lover, legend. Roll credits and cue the music.

The stylist:
Oh for f... I'll just do this myself then, right?

Hard-boiled detective (v/o):
Broads. Always yapping about when they get nervous.

Now, if you can't get my hair to look like Bogart's, I swear I'll punch you so hard you will join the other members of your profession.. and just to get my point across: you are standing on one right now.

Do you have to open graves to find girls to fall in love with, Detective? Well, while I don't approve, at least let me do something with that comb-over..
