Default Dixit2: Electric Boogaloo

Welcome to the second :ff: game of Dixit!

We begin with a reading of the rules, as prepared by our former GM and illustrious forum gamemaker, Crumbles:

Quote:

Here is the basic outline of the game:
  • Each player gets six cards
  • Each round one player is the storyteller, they PM me one of their cards and publicly post a phrase based on that card
  • All the other players PM me one of their cards that best fits that phrase
  • Then I post the cards in random order and each player (except the storyteller) publicly guesses which card they believe is the storytellers
  • Points are received for correct guesses, and if people incorrectly guess your card
  • The storyteller gets points if 1 or more people select their card, but they will receive NO points (and the other players will get points) if ALL players select the right card
  • Then we repeat with the next storyteller and one new card each

So the storyteller has to toe the line between being completely obvious about their card and being completely random.

Here are the cards we will be using: Dixit
Thank you, Crumb.

Now, here is our starting scoreboard. Positions have been randomized by random.org. The asterisks indicate which round each player will be the Storyteller.

 CrumbBortSock PuppetKaelPan NaransEnsign Steve
Round 1*     
Round 2 *    
Round 3  *   
Round 4   *  
Round 5    * 
Round 6     *
Total000000

Here is how the scoring works.
• If everyone selects the Storyteller's card- zero points to the Storyteller, all other players get 2 points.
• If no one selects the Storyteller's card- zero points to the Storyteller, all other players get 2 points.
• If one or more players, but not all players, select the Storyteller's card- three points to the Storyteller
• If anyone picks your card any time you are not the Storyteller, you get a point.
• If you correctly choose the Storyteller's card you get three points. (Unless everyone picks the Storyteller's card, then you get two, see above.)

Everyone should have received their cards via PM. At the end of each round, I will be sending you another card to replenish your hand. You should have six cards to pick from at all times. If you are ever short or get a duplicate card, please PM me and I will fix it as quick as I can.

Now we are ready to play!

Round 1 begins with Crumb as our first Storyteller.

Crumb, When you are ready, please PM me your first card and post your phrase in thread.

Players, once Crumb has posted his phrase in thread, select your best card for that clue and PM it to me. Please include both the link and the card number in your message. DO NOT post your card in this thread.

Once I have received all cards, I will post the options in thread and the voting stage will begin.

Good luck, players!

Alrighty, here are your choices for Round 1:

Round 1
Card 75

Card 9

Card 64

Card 19


Card 48

Card 53

The Clue Is: "Ticky-tacky"

Players, please make your selection. Then post the number of the card you believe belongs to the Storyteller in this thread.

Note: You cannot vote for your own card. The Storyteller does not vote.

Cards are out now. If everyone could hold on to them for a moment. I want to give Bort the opportunity to exchange his card and clue, if he so desires.
