Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark [5]
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom [5]
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade [5]
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull [5]

A bit short, don't you think? How about 10 points?

Anyway:

-KOTCS +1 (because I don't want to see it eliminated first...)
-LC -1

Good idea but for some reason I cannot edit my top post

Anyway, I'll reboot this and show you how it's done

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom [10]
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade [10] + 1 = [11]
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull [10] - 1 = [9]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't it go on forever if you add as much as you subtract on each turn? That's a net change of zero each time. How about you subtract two and add one per turn?

I'll start with that.

Raiders +
Skull -

Raiders 11
Temple 10
Crusade 10
Skull 9

Different people like different films, I see these games all the time on other film forums.

Best keep it as +1, -1, to keep the game going


EDIT: I reccomend you edit your post so that KOTCS has 9 points

Have it your way. But surely you must know this sort of thing is interminable. Also, we just delete them once they're completed anyhow, so if you see this as a steady route to getting an avatar...we'll just see.
