Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 1, Day 1

Post by rjaguar3 » Mon Jul 31, 2017 8:33 am

Here we go with the 2017 Summer Hiatus Challenge.

Please make sure to read the rules and declare wild card eligibility in that thread. (A slight change has been made to the rules since they were posted: as in previous SHCs, there will be no additional wild card granted if the Kids/Teens wild card doesn't reach critical mass.)

Each game thread begins with 4 points:
  1. Announcements (this post)
  2. Questions
  3. Template for responses
  4. Reserved for answers
Please make sure to post your responses in the game thread and spoilerize your responses (add a ] after [spoiler and [/spoiler on the form; this is a change from last year due to the forum software upgrade). Please don't delete any lines from the response template (it breaks the parser).

The scoring site for the 2017 Summer Hiatus Challenge should be up tonight.

Let's get started.

8: Stranger Things uses as a motif this The Clash song where picking one title option, "there will be trouble"; with the other, "it will be double".

10: This musical includes the lyrics: "Strange as it seems, there's been a run of crazy dreams / And a man who can interpret could go far, could become a star"
