Hey, thanks for reading my answer. I'm famous now! Now I just need a cool nickname, like The w00tinator. That's /my/ QoftheW: What would my cool nickname be?

The best game would be one of the following:

-That backgammon and chess idea you guys came up with would be great

-A video game version of the overly-complex board game (which I also have, and have yet to find anyone who would play it with me), kinda like Monopoly Party, which I've played on Gamecube and is actually a bit more fun the Monopoly; it takes less time to put it away.

-Speaking of Monopoly Party, it could be like Monopoly! You could choose Jack or Hurley or Locke (of course) and go around the island buying The Black Rock, Otherville, and the Plane Crash site. The Railroads can be The Swan, The Pearl, The Flame, and The Hydra, and the Utility spaces can be The Flame and The Looking Glass (seeing as they are both communications).

-Speaking of parties, a Mario Party-esque game! You roll the die to go around the board and after everyone plays, you play a mini-game, like tapping A to run away from the smoke monster or pressing a button in rhythm to pound on Charlie's chest to make him live again after he's hung from the tree.

-There's also a Mortal Kombat type game, where Sawyer can fight Tom Friendly, or something.

Ok, I've rambled on enough. I have a theory about Locke and healing properties, but I'll save it and call in when you get on a Locke-centric podcast.

Thanks!

Oh yeah, and I've been spoiler-free this whole season, but I accidently saw the Comic-Con information. Lucky I did, though, because at the end, they showed a DHARMA Initiative video they said they got from somewhere in Norway and it's sorta like another Orientation film for another station called The Orchid. If you wanna watch it, go here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bTvAUVPyLI.

Thanks again!

Wow guys, I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to send in my answer to the QotW! It's been a REALLY hectic week. But I will DEFINITELY send in my answer this week.

Ben, Thanks for all the great QoftheW answers. Hmm nicknames... here are a few suggestions

Notorious B.E.N.
Big Ben
The B Train

...Those aren't that great, I'll try to come up with some better ones.
As for the video from Comic Con, some people tell me it may be a boarderline spoiler. So in an attempt to be %100 spoiler-free I think I'll skip it.
Thanks again

-Brian

Sorry then, I wasn't sure if it would count as a spoiler or not. And I was going to go with The B Train, until I thought of this one, and it looked cool in my imagination, so I went with it.

A really kinda cool video game would be like you were Charlie, and you had to like prevent yourself from being killed. Before each 'stage' you would see part of a memory of Charlie being killed from Desmond, and you'll get tips from Des.

minigames could also include:
-(like you came up with) the backgammon or chess game would be cool

-table tennis with Sawyer

A free roam thing would be cool too, like to roam the island on your own, defending against polar bears, wild boars and avoiding smoke monsters...haha, that would be nice...

thanks guys!!

Heh, thanks! MikhailLives is the first thing I thought of. I would've used it as my blogger name, but if he died, I would run the chance of looking like an idiot. Also thanks for leaving comments on my blog; I'm new to this place, so I'm not sure how to do much and how to get more people to /read/ it. Lookin' forward to the next podcast! If you're still doing every other week, then it should be coming out sometime around when I start my first week of college, so it'll be good to have something to use to relax and laugh.

QoftheW: What's your idea of the perfect LOST Video Game?

We should have a new show online early new week.

Hey!
I guess this post could be considered as a "random ramble", however I really wanted to thank you for your amazing podcast that i recently began listening to. Lost is the greatest show ever, though i only began to watch it during season three...i then went out to buy the other seasons, became an avid searcher of "lostpedia" and other lost sites, and discovered more in a few months than many casual viewers have found in three years.

Anyways...your podcast is fun, informative, and another claim to my LOST addiction(for lack of better wording). Keep up the good work, the witty repitoire, and the morbid organ music....(which always tends to make me laugh while listening on my zune....concequently providing dirty looks from my friends who roll their eyes at "my lost stuff"...).

Cant wait for more,
Lostie108

(by the way...remember that name...just like w00tinator and leprichaun sam, i plan on being a common contributor and who knows? maybe I'll be just as recognized as one of the few female (maybe even the first)to attain that status...)

Welcome aboard Lostie108! It's always great to have a new contributor... The sole fact that you listen to us on a Zune (Best..Portable Music Player..Ever)tells me you'll make a fine addition to our group of regulars.

Yes, yes, yes....recognition and a compliment on the wonders of the Zune, all in one comment.

Completely kills the urge to say that "this podcast blows"...ha, just kidding....

As for the Q of the W, I think that a cool minigame option would be "Operation-THe Ben Edition", where you would act as Jack and play the loveable kids game with a twist...instead of a buzzer going off each time you make a mistake, there could be a black smoke monster attack or something to that nature....
Thin concept really, but hey, I'd play it.
