So, here is a game.

Interested? Want to know more? I thought so!

QUESTION STAGE: I will make a post called the "Trigger Post" (TP), and after that, the first question -- or imperative sentence prompting a reply -- posted by anyone, pending my approval, will become the question for the round. These posts are called the "Question Posts" (QP's). I will reply with an "Approval Post" (AP) to let everyone know which question got approval. The Approval Post marks the beginning of the Answer Stage.

ANSWER STAGE: Anyone who likes can PM me an answer. Please DO NOT answer on the forum! You may post in the forum at any time but do not post your answer there, because it will only count if you PM it to me, and if people know what you answered it will work against you. You will not be punished for posting your answer, but I ask you to not do it, and answers only count if they are PM'ed to me.

GUESSING STAGE: After a certain amount of time, whenever I decide we have enough answers, I will post of all the answers that were PM'ed to me, with the authors' names randomly switched about. This is called the "Answer List" (AL). Each user must post on the forum their guess of which of the other users is the one that gave the answer that they were assigned. This is called the "Guess Post" (GP). The Guess Post period end when all players have given a Guess Post, or approximately 24 hours after the time the Answer List is posted, whichever comes first. There is no order in which the players must guess, only a free-for-all, but do not state anything but your guess alone, and do not post again until all guesses have been posted. I will post a Scoring Post, stating who scored a point that round, and the total points standings. After that, anyone can immediately discuss the round, or anything they like. DO NOT edit your guess post.

INFRACTIONS: You will not receive any point in a round if you commit any of the following infractions.

- Post anything in your Guess Post other than the name of the user that is your guess.
- Edit your Guess Post.
- Delete your Guess Post.
- Post twice during the Guessing Stage (the period after the Answer List is posted but before the Scoring Post has been posted.

If you accidentally simulpost, resulting in a post after the Answer List is posted, but before you knew it had been posted, do not edit or delete it, and go ahead and make your Guess Post at any time. I will consider leniency in such cases, but I reserve the right to negate any point won in such cases, as I can never be 100% certain that there is no foul play about.

Users who are not involved in the current round may post in the forum at any time EXCEPT for the period during which Guess Posts are to be made.

SCORING: Any player who correctly guesses the author of his assigned answer receives 1 point.

WINNING: First to 10 points wins the game, and a new game begins.

TIEBREAKER: If multiple players reach 10 points at the same time, the winner among those players will be the one with the lowest sum of the chronological ranks of each of his ten correct guesses. This is to encourage quick gameplay. Example: If one tied player with 10 points answered first out of everyone in all of the 10 rounds in which he scored a point, his sum would be 10, and would obviously win the tiebreaker, and the game.

So, just as a reference, here is an outline of the significant posts and stages:

I. QUESTION STAGE
TP - Trigger Post by me
QP - Question Post(s) by anyone
AP - Approval Post by me

II. ANSWER STAGE
PM - Answers PM'ed to me by anyone
AL - Answer List posted by me when I choose

III. GUESSING STAGE (no posting besides 1 Guess Post per player)
GP - Guess Posts by each player who submitted answer PM's.

IV. DISCUSSION STAGE
SP - Scoring Post by me after all GP's are in, or time is up
Discussion by anyone about the previous round
Then, the following round's Trigger Post will be made, officially beginning the next round.

Sounds interesting enough.

The world is not beautiful, and that, in a way, lends it a sort of beauty.

Sure. This is officially the "Trigger Post" (TP). First person to post a good question/prompt will get approved by me with a "Question Approval Post" (QAP). And, we don't need a certain number of people to start posting the question, but I'm hoping to get at least 5 PM Answers before posting the Answer List.

That's the thing, we don't need a list of players. We just need a question. Then ANYONE can PM me an answer. Once I feel we have "enough" answers, I post the Answer List. No one needs to apply or anything.

What type of wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Do the answers have to be serious?

The answers do not have to be serious at all. They can be serious, they can be humorous, they can be wacky, they can be nonsense, they can be deceptive (Even though you don't lose any opportunity to score points by having your answer guessed correctly, you still want the rest of the players to guess as few correctly as possible, so confusing the other players could work in your favor.) Anything you like. Even including picture(s)! The only exception is swearing/adult content of any type, of course.

This is the Approval Post. The question is:

What type of wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?


Again, you may still discuss anything, besides your answer to the question. You may discuss the question itself vaguely (example: "Lol, this one should be interesting...", stuff like that), or anything else. Anyone who wants to play, PM me your answer, and put this thread on your watchlist!

Very good, DP. In fact, you know what, that's ALL you're allowed to say about the question. Just that. Jk.
