War of the WordS

For tournament announcements and updates.

  • Random game idea time. Only play this one if you're fairly active and social.

    10 person game, likely mining, probably anonymous too. Game runs as normal, but added point system. 1 point for last place, up to 10 points (if that many players) for first.

    War of the Words: as soon as the game starts, I will give everyone a random word. I'll try to make the words fairly random, but some will be easier than others. Your task is to say that word in public chat. If you are successful, you get a certain number of extra points. However, if someone manages to pick out your special word (nobody else will know your word beforehand, everyone's will be different) within 2 hours, you don't get the point, and have to take a new word.

    Everyone will get 2 spots per day. You use your spots to spot the words. For a correct guess, you gain a point. For your first incorrect guess per day, nothing. But at your second, you lose a point.

    You report your winning to me, I'll try to check them often to make sure you didn't cheat, but I'll trust you guys (in a game about lying and deceit). However, if you are spamming the chat with nonsense words or just spamming too much in general, I will reserve the right to take points from you. This is meant to just be like a normal game, but with people trying to throw in different words here and there.

    You can add other random words that aren't your word, but just try to keep that to a minimum too.

    Questions, or to sign up, please feel free to post. I aim to start on Monday the 17th

  • Wait a minute, wouldn't a viable strategy just be to write things like:
    "Hi guys. Sausage"
    "Lol. Pizza"
    "idk. Automobile"
    "haha. wiggle"
    etc.

    Ok that was a bit extreme, I'm sure I could integrate it into my messages a lot better, but you get the point - no one would be able to tell which word was your actual word. How do you suggest preventing this?

  • True tw but that would be half the fun and it still depends somewhat on the words he chooses. I'd definitely play, send me an invite or post the name when you make it. Maybe we could add a stipulation like you can only say 5 or so sentences in the public chat within 24 hours...

    Nah, I know that could be very likely. That's why I'll be playing judge, jury and executioner. If anything like that happens, I'll just start taking points from people.

    That could be a bit too limiting, but I can see where you're coming from

  • I'm totally in. Hilarious idea math, or English......I'm confused :?
    My faith has found a resting place,
    Not in device or creed;
    I trust the ever-living One,
    His wounds for me shall plead.
    I need no other argument,
    I need no other plea,
    It is enough that Jesus died,
    And that He died for me.

  • This sounds pretty interesting. I'm in!
    I'm highly suspicious of your motivations.
