Oh wow this was a fun project to piece together. Thanks again for your excellent contributions!
For this collaboration, I took your words and pictures and created two “Magnetic Poetry” games in Flash. Many of my friends would have these magnetic words on their refrigerators. If you are not familiar with this game, you can see it here: Magnetic Poetry Kit. It retails for $19.95 but you can play a Richard Armitage version for free! Since I couldn’t do this without you, I pass along the savings, LOL! 😀
For no particular reason, I made a screencap of Richard Armitage as Ricky Deeming:
Now it’s time for your games. I gladly made two of them because of the overwhelming response. Since these are Flash games, you will be redirected to my external webhosting site. Also, they will not play on iPods, iPhones or iPads as you may already know. Please click the image or text links below to play.
Magical Magnetic Poetry Game #1
Magical Magnetic Poetry Game #2
To play the game, you can figure it out on your own or you can follow the directions below:
- If a box with an X pops up, please click the X to close it. This appears in some browsers as a result of my hosting service.
- Click and drag the words and punctuation to create poetry or to recreate your contribution. (The pictures do not drag and drop.)
- Hit the “Refesh” button on the browser to reset the game and start again. Alternatively, you can press the F5 function key on your keyboard.
Hope you enjoy our new collaborative game. Again, I thank you for your help! Please post your poems so we can share in your creativity. 😀
It’s great, thanks a lot Bccmee. 🙂
@april73: Thanks for contributing and commenting. Let us know if you write a poem! 😀
You’re welcome Bccmee. 😉
I don’t think I will write a poem. My English is ok enough to write a few words for a comment, but I feel not comfortable enough to write a poem or a fanfic in Shakespeare’s language, sorry… 😉
That’s so creative!!! Way to go!
@tyme4t: I appreciate your submissions and look forward to a poem from you. 😀
From group 1
About truth, love and act
From group 2
Whisper to fate
And nourish this thing you enjoy
For we believe
@tyme4t: Two poems! Love them. I’m quite RAzzle dazzled! 😀
This looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
@Holliday: Thanks for your picture and text! 😀 Hope you can create a poem too.
This is such a fun idea. I’m having to remind myself that I actually have things to do today other than sitting around playing your game! 😉
@jasrangoon: Hehe, I know what busy feels like this month! I’m grateful I had enough time to complete this project. It’s interactive before and after, LOL!
My results were not really poetry, but the games were real fun. Thank you, bccmee! It was fantastic to turn words around and give them a new meaning 😉
@cdoart: Oh please don’t be shy! I am sure you can do this. I’ll post some of my poems later. Thanks so much for your support and contributions to the game! 😀
Oh, my results were real fun ;o)
Dwarves are so eligible
most eyes stay passionate
on the pretty creatures
Number 2: Goes with my suggestion – Could not resist ;o)
And, do you feel anything?
Something like pretty passionate love
The person of kind, nice and calm Richard really makes that easy!
Sorry, my spaces did disappear. Wanted to make the connection between the listings clearer, the one for beasts and the other for RA.
@cdoart: Impressive poetry! Wish there was a publication for magnetic poems, LOL! Thanks so much for posting these. 😀
For me it was a lesson in English
(but since I’m really bad know English, I just put the familiar meaning of the words in the photo, which I think are more suitable for these values) (can be on this flash script, you do play, dressing up, Richard?)
@Tanni Tani: I think even random words can be fun, LOL! I very much appreciate your submissions.
Here’s a tutorial for one method of drag and drop in Flash CS5: http://youtu.be/hpAKAs80SNg 😀
Yes, thank you, a good lesson. I had in mind something like that,
just to make costumes Richard, Guy, Thorin, Lucas (with the possibility of changes in hairstyles, beards and other parts of the image natural foto). Just think, I do not have time to do everything so that was good.
it is more appropriate
@Tanni Tani: Another great example! I hope you make something like this. 😀
@Tanni Tani: Oooh, I hope you come up with something! Have fun and good luck. 😀
Yes, I’ll do it. But now I have no desire to spend too much time on the computer. We have a summer and I love spending time in nature. But when to start a rain and cold – I’ll be happy to deal with flash games
That was a fun game, B. 🙂 I love to play with words.
Here is my poem from the first group:
Stay most passionate creature,
Forever my dark love.
Feel the moment my eyes are on you.
Calm like truth.
We were meant to be together. 🙂
@jeanniegisborne: Awesome poem! And thank you for your words and picture too! You win a gold star for being the first person to post a poem.
Yay! I’m just a glory hound, That’s why I posted my poem. LOL Thank you for your kind words 🙂
This is great, Bcc! Lovely graphic of Ricky!
@Carolyn: Thanks very much for being so supportive! *HUGS* 😀
Hi, Bcc it´s seems another creative project but unfortunatelly I am not getting to open them.I have tried several times and even with two different blowsers ( firefox and google chrome) and… nothing!
I think the web server might be down. Suddenly I can’t access the page either! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll contact them and also see if I can find another server.
EDIT: Oops, now it’s working. Hopefully it was a temporary glitch and you can access the pages now. 😀
Fantastic fun. 🙂 In truth I have no poetic talent but putting those words in a sentence is so much fun. Thank you very much Bccmee!.
@Ania: I’m glad you had fun. That’s the most important thing! 😀 Thanks again for your contributions!
Just wasted 20 minutes on this lol! Not really a waste though, as I could gaze at his many characters around the edges. It was hard not to be suggestive 🙂
Thanks, this was great fun! xxx
@trbabe: Haha, it’s easy to get lost in RActivities! Thanks for your comment. 😀
Having once analysed a poem featuring a cat as being about a nuclear weapon and being told by my teacher that “Actually, it’s just about a cat” I claim no affinity with poetry. But you asked for it, bccmee …
Eligible sexy dwarves
A pretty filthy habit.
To my eyes, so bearable.
From #2 (where I found my quote)
Love cannot be mean
It is nourish, not bite (no?)
A backpack of whispers
A six-pack of silver
And prunes and cream will nurture.
There’s no disgrace within love, really.
p.s. I’m really happy I got prune+s in there, lol.
@beengizzied: I think the prunes represent Kenneth Branagh in a top hat. Am I right?
Following my poetry analysis technique, that interpretation would be absolutely possible (but maybe a bit conservative), lol.
Very fun! I would not say that my game was a poem, but the background images was pure art!
@Ana Cris: Haha, I put some words together that would not really be considered poetry either, but they sound cool in their randomness, LOL! Thanks for your contributions. 😀
Hey Bccmee: http://bit.ly/Pf41LQ
@Snicker’s Mom: ROTFL! There’s one for posterity! 😀
Oodles of fun!
Here was my poem, “Ode”:
Forever with you.
@Gratiana: Wow, that’s very romantic and remarkable considering the limits of the vocabulary! Woohoo, congrats! Thanks for all your contributions. 😀
And notice, 13 words on Aug. 13th. Ha!
@Gratiana: Haha, I didn’t do a word count. Even better!
I’m seen counting my silver six pack
But come closer
To confirm that’s the way strawberry whispers
Really bite forever.
Total nonsense. lol. 🙂
@love4ot: *giggle* It turned out well though! I like nonsense. We could have a contest for most random poem. 😉

I suck at writing poetry, but I still enjoyed your game, dragging words at random ^^
@thefrencharmitagearmy: I’ve done the same thing with some pretty funny results! 🙂
@Everyone: I almost forgot I promised to post one of my poems. Here it is:
