Rules:
  • You don't have to participate to post. You don't have to participate in one round to participate in a later one.
  • Only one round may be in session at a time.
  • The poster of the round's questions decides when the round ends and announces it ahead of time. They may extend it if there are less non-cheating players than questions.
  • Answer the questions within a [more] tag on a post in this thread. Don't look at others' posts before you answer (that's cheating). You cannot change your answers after posting (that's also cheating). Cheaters are automatically disqualified for the round and the next round.
  • Each person will be awarded a number of points for each question equal to the logarithm (base equal to the number of players) of the number of people that gave the same answer for that question. Blank responses will not be scored.
  • The winner of this round will have the right of first refusal to run the next round. The runner-up can do the next round as long as the winner refuses, and so forth. If there is a tie and more than one wants to run the next round, they shall work it between themselves. If it has been more than two weeks and no one posted a new round, anyone can. New rounds are to be carried out on this thread
  • Each round must have 9-15 questions.

It is suggested to respond with what other players are most likely to respond with as a strategy.
