I don’t know about you all, but sometimes I think of a tag game idea that I’d love to do so I do a quick internet search to see if it’s been thought of & done before. It just about always has been. Every time. My creativity is lacking, it seems. But that’s okay. Now I don’t have to think of questions!
So I click on the original game post, I scroll through & read the questions, and that’s when it happens. My interest sinks. My sails have lost their wind. I feel a little bad. But there it is.
I absolutely hate most, if not all, of the question pairings.
Be it with a song title, lyrics, a movie list, characters, what-have-you, the specific questions you’re meant to answer just do not appeal to you. At all. You’ve read through them & thought “why would you choose THAT question for THAT song title?! I have SUCH a better match for that! GAHH!!” Then you sigh, close the browser, & cry out in agony over the unfairness of it all (orrrrr maybe that’s just me) but what can you do?
WHAT CAN YOU DO?!
Here is where I ask my ultimate question & I would LOVE some input from y’all;
Is it okay to do your own version of a tag game that someone else has already established? Putting together your own question pairings with the same theme as the one you found elsewhere? If yes, how would you go about doing that? Would you just figure out a different title for the tag game to differentiate it? Do you mention the tag that already existed & how you switched it up in your own version? Is it ok to do only if you thought of the idea BEFORE finding the already existing tag? Is it NEVER ok? Should one just suck it up & do the already existing game or not do it at all & let it go?
I’d love to put together my own little tag game but all my ideas seem to have already been done in the book blogging community & not liking the ones that others have created really leaves me feeling a little bad. But should I? We’re not all gonna like everything everyone does. That’s just life. But I would love to discuss this with you all.
What would you do? Or do you do nothing at all?
What do you do when you & the tag games just don’t mesh?
