This puzzle is part of the Monthly Topic Challenge #3: Pencil and Paper Games
Last night, I played a game of Consequences with seven friends. In our particular version of the rules*, a game consists of eight rounds:
(met) Her name;
Where they met;
And the consequence was...
As per the usual gameplay each player simultaneously took a piece of paper, wrote their answer for the current round, folded the paper down to hide their answer, then passed it to the player on their left. Play then continued until the final round was written, and the papers passed one final time. Each player then read aloud the answers on their sheet, sometimes with hilarity ensuing (it's not guaranteed in some circles...).
For example, the sheet I read out had been completed as follows:
(met) Rebecca Adlington
Within the Super User Stack Exchange.
(He wore) Decent, sturdy footwear and a sensible suit.
(She wore) Nothing.
(He said) "They kicked me off the boat - I was absolutely livid!"
(She said) "I'll bet you shouted 'til your voice was hoarse!"
(And the consequence was...) To round off the evening nicely they shared a bottle of wine and fell asleep in each other's arms.
(I can only apologise for some of my friends' lewdness and poor idea of 'humour', but this tends to be the way the game goes...)
Anyway, to make the game more interesting, before starting we had each drawn out of a hat a secret 'construction challenge' which we had to employ while coming up with our answers - some kind of pattern that we had to apply consistently to everything we wrote. For example, one of the unused challenges that remained in the hat was to conceal the name of a colour among each answer.
My challenge to you is:
Given the other answers from last night's game, (below, in alphabetical order by round) can you reconstruct what each of the other seven sheets of paper looked like at the end of the night (clockwise from me), and explain each of our 'construction challenges'?
(Coincidentally, it also turns out there was one round where everybody clearly cheated at the same time and had a peek at the answer immediately previous, so they could write the next part for humorous effect! I'm sure you'll spot where...)
|His name||Hugh Hefner||Jamie Foxx||Marty McFly||Sepp Blatter||Seve Ballesteros||Tim Nice-But-Dim||Zayn Malik|
|Her name||A nymph from Greek mythology||Bea Arthur||Elven beauty, Arwen Undómiel||Jane Eyre||Lizzo||Perrie Edwards, from Little Mix||Wonder Woman|
|Where they met||A country in South Asia||A private plane||Belgium||In a very grand hotel||On the deck of the Starship Enterprise||The back seat of a Honda Civic||While playing on the golf links|
|He wore||A Hawaiian shirt that was particularly vivid||A king's crown and signet ring||A school blazer, grey trousers, a tie, and smart shoes||An outfit straight out of The Rocky Horror Picture Show||Batman Cufflinks||Decorators' painting overalls||Tree decorations: Tinsel, baubles, and a star on top|
|She wore||A discreetly concealed earpiece and mic||A scuba diving suit||Flowers in her hair||Fur - and a coat of red paint from the protesters she encountered on the way||Junkyard chic||Sequins that shimmered in the moonlight||Something shiny you might see at the Academy Awards|
|He said||Babe, I'm as famous as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince||Bourbon?||I'm very into Shakespeare - I just adore "Much Ado About Nothing"||I've peed my pants!||May I have this dance?||My dear, let us run away to South America||Oh, fiddlesticks|
|She said||I prefer Red Bull - it gives you wings!||I'm actually quite well known myself - I'm on a couple of banknotes back home...||"Julius Caesar" is vastly superior||Never!||Oh, well done!||Si, señor - me gusta mucho||Watch your language - keep your tongue civil!|
|And the consequence was...||A hospital procedure to check for broken bones||Marriage! Then they had seventeen children and they all lived happily ever after in a giant shoe.||Naughtiness!||They both died in a plane crash||They both got food poisoning and were horribly ill||They exchanged a hug and a kiss then parted, never to speak again||They had to flee the country!|
* Note from OP: This is the base rule-set I've always played among friends. As we grew up, when we started to find the game a bit repetitive, we actually introduced a ninth bonus round to be played just before the final consequence, and which varied from game to game, chosen on the night by suggestions shouted out by the players, and which could end up being almost anything. Never, though, did we ever play with 'construction challenges' like this - I might suggest it next time we play...
