As you are hopefully aware, there is a bot in the Chatroom that can play Apples to Apples. It's really easy to make custom cards for the game to use, so I thought it would be fun to create an Adventures in Odyssey themed game mode!

To do this I need to swap out the standard red cards with ones that pertain to AiO, so I need a lot of names of people, places, and things. I've got people pretty well covered; I used the character list on AiO Wiki. Compiling good places and things is harder though, and would take more time than I want to spend on it if working alone, so I'm going to crowdsource this. Come up with what you think would make good cards and we'll make this game together! :)

Examples of what I'm looking for:
"Whit's End", "Campbell County Community College", and "The Bible Room" are great cards for locations.
"Whit's Ice Cream", "Eugene's Computer", and "Bernard's Squeegee" are some good thing cards.
I also need some companies and groups, such as "Novacom" and "The Bones of Rath"
There can also be actions or ideas, like "Using the Imagination Station", "Drinking a Wod-Fam-Choc-Sod", or "An Elaborate I Slap Floor"

Add your ideas to this Google Doc as you think of them! It's publicly editable, you don't have to be logged into anything.
Thanks for your help!

Thanks for doing this, bookworm! I added several things- feel free to remove any if you think they won't work in the game.

Thanks TS!

The category I'll need the most help filling is the experiences/concepts, like "Asking Mr. Whittaker For Advice"
It's easy to identify good ones when you have one, but they take some thought to come up with.

More experience/concept cards I thought of, to help people grasp the idea of that category:

Accidentally Activating Applesauce
Waking Up In The Twilife Zone
Realizing Your Evil Twin Came Through Town Before You
A 'Sale' At The Electric Palace
Customer Service At The Electric Palace
A Week At Camp What-A-Nut
A Defeated Villain Returning As A Computer Virus
Being Harlow Doyle's Secretary
Getting Contacted By AREM
Stuck In An Elevator With Bryan Dern

The possibilities here are pretty endless, you just have to come up with them.
We're going to want a lot of cards in this category so please give it some thought! :)

Excellent! Thanks Scientific Guy! It seemed like the Wiki would have that kind of thing somewhere. :)
