A little contest, making use of the new emoticons.
'Da Rules:
a.) You must enter a guess for each number 1-5 below.
b.) I will reply to guesses in 'Mastermind' style -- that is, I will tell you how many you've got right, but not necessarily which ones.
c.) I promise that all the games are of sufficiently high profile -- either top 250 ranked entries on BGG or familiar classics -- that any regular BGG member should recognize the answers by reputation, even if you haven't played every single one. I won't toss some obscure kids' game from 1022 into the mix.
d.) Emoticons' meanings are not limited to the literal. goo means "goo," certainly, but it also stands in for any monster, particularly slimy ones. sauron can indicate "villain" in general, while redtrain or caravan might mean "travel." Any words or symbols in the clues are not necessarily to be taken literally as parts of the title. Hint: the names of the emoticons may prove useful in guessing alternative meanings.
e.) The emoticons may refer to the game's title ( redtrain = "Gold Train") its gameplay ( ) or its theme (ninja: arrrh = sneaky pirates...in this case, Cartagena).
f.) First player to correctly name all five titles gets !

And now, The Games:

1.) angryrobot

2.) ninjaninja

3.) googoogoo vs. ninjazombie

4.) angrycry

5.) redtraingreentrainbluetrainyellowtrain -> gulp

Good Luck!

Let's make guesses public -- that way people can benefit from previous information. I'm also guaging the difficulty of these clues...if they get stalled, I'll add another hint.

There was another journal with an emoticon rebus 'guess the game' contest just a moment ago. What happened to it?

Yoiks!
Quick replies, and clever answers all-round, but no winners yet. I am pleased to say that I can see how most of the answers were arrived at, given the clues. If there is no winner by 5:00 p.m. Tomorrow (Wednesday) I will add an additional emoticon hint for each clue.

One VERY important hint: #1 is *NOT* Richochet Robot. It *is* another game located in the BGG top 100.

Quote:
1. Richochet Robot
2. Euphrate & Tigris
3. Titan
4. Battle Cry
5. Stephenson's Rocket

1/5

Quote:
1. Ricochet Robots
2. Go
3. Titan: The Arena
4. Battlecry
5. Robo Rally - Radioactive

1/5

Quote:
1. Richochet Robot
2. Clans
3. Colossal Arena
4. Battle Cry
5. Funkenschlag

1/5

Quote:
1) Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots
2) Ninja Burger
3) Alien vs Predator
4) Battle Cry
5) Traders of Genoa

1/5 (although I love Rock-em-Sock-em Robots for #1).

Quote:
1 Richochet Robot
2 Clans
3 Aliens Vs Predator
4 Battlecry
5 Roller Coaster Tycoon

1/5

Quote:
1 Richochet Robot
2 Ninja Burger
3 Aliens Vs Predator
4 Battlecry
5 Roller Coaster Tycoon

1/5 and what the heck is "ninja burger?" I promise, nothing too obscure here.

Quote:
1. Fury of Dracula
2. Aladdin's Dragons
3. Colossal Arena (former edition was Titan: the Arena)
4. BattleCry
5. Can't Stop

1/5, though in Mastermind you would also get a white peg. Call it 1.5/5

There, that should give you all some more to chew on.

Well, it is a Steve Jackson game, and you gotta admit - that piece in the middle looks kinda like a beef patty.

Actually shouldn't that be:

1- RoboRally
2- Samurai
3- Fury of Dracula
4- BattleCry
5- Monopoly?

The last time I played it I definatly felt gulp, but you are probably right, it does sort of look like the board.

I'm guessing Stephen Smith got it right - that last entry is just in case my Candyland intuition was correct.
