Listing off the enemies from Castlevania doesn't constitute a poem Yahtzee.
It does if he manages to get it to ryhme constantly.

That was very impressive Yahtzee. And the joke at the end was brilliant! XD

It didn't sound like that was the case to me.

Actually, poetry can be just that. It doesn't have to rhyme either.

Poetry is very versatile stuff.

Yes I've heard of prose, but simply listing off enemies from a game still seems like kind of a stretch. It's like taking attendance for a class and calling that a poem.

So by that logic, would you say that Yakko's World isn't a song?

I don't believe I've heard that so I can't really say.

If that attendance list had some deep and personal meaning, something emotionally engaging about it, then yes, it could become a poem. The fact it isn't a poem is rooted in the fact that it IS just a roll call, but I am sure you could write a meaningful poem that takes the form of a roll call and have it affect people.

Wait Germany is in that one with Poland. Either that is older than it looks like or they used a very old map.
Edit: Nevermind it is just really strange formed

OT: I enjoyed the rhymedown like always. Keep it up! One small thing I have: Can we get a written version of the Poems in the first post?

The title and first sentence about putting all his money on the line were enough for me to know Jim was referencing SaltyBet. Then he mentioned DBZ. It wounded me in my soul. Jim, don't ever bet DBZ. It's one of the rules of SaltyBet. I love that you made a poem about it, though.

I don't get it....

Of course Germany is next to Poland. Why wouldn't it be there? It's not like we've invaded (or lost) something recently.....


on topic: It alright this week I guess. Yahtzee made me chuckle a bit at the end. :)

I thought that Germany had still territory from Poland in that map because it didnt match with the memorized layout

The shape in general is alright in the video but not perfect. It's a cartoon version - so don't take it to seriously...

To Yahtzee, I give you...


For Jim, not sure what to make of that but I think this is appropriate...

Actually, a list like that can totally work. Examples:

Good poetry week again :)

Keep the good work up Jim and Ben! or should it be Ben and Jim?

Yahtzee actually memorizes his poems?
I thought you always had the poem "behind" the camera onn paper or something...
