Good questions. No voting for your own and no changing your vote. :nyahnyah:

Shouldn't the votes be secret, then, so people don't be just waiting around to narrow down by seeing who votes for stuff because they know it's not theirs?

I was sort of going to try to be the last guy so I could do that, but I didn't because I am nice.

I would hate to have to resort to that. I hope that doesn't become a problem.

How could you determine by anyone's votes which of those is not theirs, there are still 4 not mine options for each of us?

If everyone else voted for the same one, and you waited to vote last.

I think lisarea is trying to say that she thinks Kael is cheating.

Kael has just spent the last few hours setting up a 14' diameter metal frame pool that just arrived, and becoming frustrated enough to contemplate writing something for the "rap about your first-world problems" thrad... I'll be in shortly.

You could discourage people from waiting to vote last by docking a point from the last voter.

But, because of time zones, that would probably penalize Europeans. OMG! racism!

Anyway, I was about to ask the same question pea did. Pea and I are currently the two joint lowest scorers in the game so wanting to ask questions is probably bad. What you need is not a well-thought-out strategy, but gallons of luck - like that sack guy. :mutter:

OMG, re round two, I have to high five Sack for knowing how my allusion fixated mind works. English major props! :highfive:

Also I am in awe of the perfection of Shea's card. Not only did it fit my clew really, really well, it was also all appropriated art with a gendered note, which most likely gave everyone a serious Demi-vibe. Brava, shea! :applause:

This dickshit game is suboptimal and we do not even CARE about it because there are more important things in our lives, unlike the stupid winners.

Can we use repeats? For some reason I was thinking we can use each card only once both individually and as a group, but I just got a replacement card that was played by another player in another round

So, if I've already offered a card on one round, can I offer it again in another?

If you got a dupe card then I messed up.

Each card should only be played once. I will send you a new card.

Who would ever have guessed that those other lame-ass players couldn't select more appropriate cards for something as ambiguous and non-specific as 'a meeting of minds.'

I seriously didn't have a single card that worked. Some of the ones I used in previous rounds would've worked much better, but you'll have to lend me your time machine to fix that.

Well, you already know I suck at this game, so it's not like I did it on purpose.

Everyone else has some splaining to do, though.

Because you can't choose your own card, you know that the card someone picks isn't theirs. So because I was the last one to guess and everyone else picked the same card, I knew that none of you guys had submitted it.

And it wasn't the card I submitted either, so it had to be ceptimus'.

I was afraid I'd made mine too explicit... I'm so glad someone had a card that threw a couple people off! At least now I (probably) won't be in last place.
