You are a 14 year old College Freshman

Quick rules, if you don't want to read the link:

This game requires some limited use of the GeekRoller. 2d6 are rolled for Stamina checks, which happen during each time the game progresses. Stamina starts at 1 and the game ends when it reaches 12. Stamina increases with each successful addition to the geeklist.



1. The narrator writes a short piece of second-person fiction as a geeklist item.

2. The other players will present options as comments to the geeklist item.

3. After all players have responded, the narrator will choose an option by editing their geeklist item with the selection from the available suggestions.

4. The writer of the chosen option will create a new geeklist item for their Stamina roll and narration. If the Stamina roll is a success, go to Step 1.

5. If the Stamina roll fails, the original narrator will choose a second option. The writer of that option will create a new geeklist item and assume control of the narrative, returning to Step 1.

If you need an example check out This Game Thread: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/270196/cheat-your-own-adv...

Don't forget to subscribe to this geeklist and thumb posts once you've read them.

The main list comments at the bottom of the page will serve as the OOC thread for the game.

Current Stamina Target = 2

You and your parents are mercifully alone in your new college dorm room. The last thing you need is your new roommate showing up while your Mom is making sure you didn't forget to pack your acne cream. "Look Mom, it's there I promise. I didn't forget anything so please go, I've got to unpack and get to freshman orientation on time". Thankfully your Mom relents and after a tearful hug from Mom and a firm handshake from Dad, you are happy to see them leave. Geewiz, it's not like they live that far away. Only an hour's drive on the express way.

Excitement runs through your body as you unpack and get settled into your dorm room. It's hard to believe you are finally starting college. Primarily because you are only 14. But ever since the first grade you have been labeled a genius and put on a course to early graduation. You have lived up to that label, cruising through the elementary and secondary grades with speed and ease. A's in all classes with a name that didn't end in "shop". It wasn't all fun and games though. Because of your superior intelligence you were always getting teased and tormented.

That all ends here you tell yourself. This is college, the other students here are adults and therefore will act with maturity and respect. You can't wait to thrust yourself into this new Academic
environment. Here you will be praised for your advanced scholastic prowess. Finally you will taste what it means to be popular.

You scan your side of the two bed dorm and can't help but exclaim out loud "Most Excellent!". Your Gateway windows 95 pc is hooked up on your desk humming with the latest version of Corel Wordperfect showing on the monitor, ready for you to pound out your first collegiate paper. On the wall are the posters of your heroes: Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Weird Al, and Alf.

On the end table next to your bed is your digital alarm clock…...

Oh cruds!! You lost track of time! If you don't leave soon for orientation you will not get there 45 minutes early to make a good impression on the school welcoming committee. You were hoping to go to orientation with your new roommate once you have made his acquaintance. Where is he… The clock is ticking…...


Gathering your backpack with everything you think you might need for orientation you run through your mental checklist. Inhaler, sunscreen, allergy medicine, extra copy of campus map (in case you lose the one in your hand), backup inhaler and...

What's that sound? You hear some horrible singing coming from the hallway.

To check out the source of the unmelodious melody turn to page 97.

You stroll into the hallway with your backpack still in hand to find out where this truly awful sound is coming from. Your eyes grow wide as you see a behemoth of a man bearing down on you. The tune bears some resemblance to 'On Top of Old Smokey,' but you're not really sure.

This bearded giant approaches quickly. What do you do?

To play it cool and pretend not to notice the corpulent ogre, possibly preparing a juicy nerd-seeking flatulate, turn to page 121.

The singing stops abruptly as he notices you. Your eyes meet. His go first to the acne cream in your hands, then to your bow-tie, then to your Star Trek trapper-keeper, then back to your eyes. His eyes narrow. Your eyes widen.

"Kon'nichiwa!" he exclaims with a friendly smile as he humbly bows to you in an oriental fashion. "Me is call Yu. I from Japan. You love me?"

You breath a sigh of relief, and in your friendliest manner, attempt to get to know Yu a little better. After a couple minutes you learn that Yu was born in Minnesota but was adopted as an infant by a Japanese family and raised in Japan. The only English he knows he learned from singing karaoke to public domain American folk songs like On Top of Old Smokey. As it turns out "I Fart On Nerds" IS his favorite rock band. "They very much favorite group in Japan" he says. He can't believe you haven't heard of them.

Yu invites you to take tea with him, assuring you how deeply ashamed he would be if you refuse and describing the agonizing disgrace it would bring to his family if you did not sit with him for a lengthy and silent tea ceremony. He's already rolling out the mat.

By this time you've blown any chance of making it early to orientation, now staying for tea would mean arriving late! That would be worse than not showing at all! On the other hand, you'll have to live with Yu for the rest of the semester and would rather avoid shaming him into disgrace on day one if it could be helped...
