I understand though... shorter lists, less intrigue, more palatable to casual players.

you can't just associate any word with a word you injected into the argument.
Your argument is invalid Mr. Stawman.

The words in question are:
masticate, heel, soup, kidney, vodka

Now as argued already masticate is the action of chewing. You are a heel if you chew your soup. Sure there might be chewy bits in your soup but you definitely do NOT masticate vodka.

You could however make soup with kidney and vodka in it.
You can also have spherical vodka soup if you happen to let it float around your space station.

So :P

Dear Mr. Lion,

If you can, please muster the intellectual fortitude to look directly at the accusation and attendant claims, and perhaps respond to them instead of fabrications and misdirection from the voices in your deluded mind. To assist you in breaching your befuddlement, consider the compilation of said arguments below.

You claim that I can not 'inject' a word into the argument. Explain, then, your own J'Accuse! wherein you have added 'book' to create a relationship that is not extant. Unlike your crass tactic, the words in my J'Accuse! do in fact intersect at the concept of food. Food is what you chew, eat, and drink. The words relate to food directly.

If you are then not so craven to consider the rules of the game include the finding of patterns and relationships, you may find the courage to revise your ill considered opinion. You will do this because you know in your skeptical heart that you are entitled to your own opinion, but not to your own facts. You may claim that the pattern discovered is not clear, or that the relationships are not strong enough to warrant your voting 'sequitur'. You may not claim that the pattern does not exist, or that it is against the new rule that you made up out of your head right at that moment.

Disdainfully,

Mr. Strawman

P.S. That was fun to write. I hope you enjoy bombast. :)

Yeah Vodka and Soup go together as much as Scientology and pages.

You may note that there are three other words in the pattern.

Forgive me but masticating cow heel soup with kidney and vodka is too high class for me.

Can anyone just join an active game at any time? This looks like fun

The way this game is going we will need a weekly recurring game. Maybe we should start a subforum for it like mafia?

That might make sense, Morvis13. The games are ending faster than I anticipated, too.

That is above my pay grade.  I can PM a real mod if you like.

It's not up to me. This is the discussion thread so if everyone agrees then we can involve the higher ups.

I'm fine either way.

I think we might need more players to make the game sustainable - we need 8 active players (J!Aer and J!Aed, up to 5 voters, Ref) for any game, and I think that's all we've got. Someone goes out for the afternoon and we're out.

Potential rememdies that come to mind include:
- extend the Heat Death timeline,
- recruit from other boards / friends, or
- increase the reward for voting.

I think locking in the players before kickoff may be a good thing.

Would anyone be interested in taking out the competitive element and just letting the game meander? Or do you think people will either get too lazy or too opportunistic?
