Roxy222: she answered 14 questions, earning 14 negative points. This round's score for Roxy is -14. Unfortunately she didn't get the character or the statement right. So she didn’t win the positive points.
twiggy scored 18 positive points and scored 8 negative points. She was a TSL journalist. Thus, because the interviewer was wrong about who she was and what the pronouncement was, half of her negative points are disregarded. So the final balance was 14 positive points.
urbanletteropener was a TDP reporter. He scored 16 positive points. But in addition, he scored 6 negative points. The final balance was 10 positive points for urbanletteropener.

I am thinking of adding a rule of mercy. If the score that someone has in the game (after considering the points from previous rounds) falls below zero, the score will be considered only Zero. In other words, the negative points remove positive points that you have already gained at some point. Thus, the final score of Roxy222 would be only zero, at the end of that round, not leaving her with such a heavy load for the next rounds.
I would like to hear your opinion and your suggestion.
Yes, I agree with both of those rules. I still think that the game should be tweaked though so it's less difficult for the interviewee. Perhaps the interviewee is allowed to ask the master a yes/no question before both reporters can ask a question? e.g. roxy: is my character female? jean: yes urbanletteropener: question 1 roxy: answer 1 twiggy: question 2 roxy: answer 2, question to master jean: yes/no answer etc etc

Great suggestion! In fact, it would be interesting that the interviewee could ask a question at the beginning for free to the master, and then throughout the game she could ask other questions (up to a maximum of 3) but at the cost of receiving 3 negative points for each question that the interviewee decides to do. Always yes or no questions. What do you think?

Violent Bun Fortuna: As a fan of the 101 Dalmations books as well as the original films (animated and live action) I really dislike Cruella, it's just totally out of keeping with that series & that character. And I love so many Disney films so that's not the problem

urbanletteropener: "bear" — you make a fair point. At this point it honestly wouldn't surprise me if Disney as a company was physically incapable of inventing new intellectual property.

GlitteryMisery: As a fan of the Chronicles of Prydain who was disappointed by Disney's previous attempt at adapting them, I'm still waiting for news on the new supposedly truer-to-the-text version they're planning.

GlitteryMisery: Disney isn't my first choice of company to film the books, but it's better than nothing.
