I have received several submissions but none in the past 24 hours. If I don't receive any more by this afternoon I guess I will go ahead and post the definitions.

Yes, I will admit that the game is a little faster this time. But that makes it kind of fun too I think.

Oh well, the points don't matter and everybody wins anyway.




The point (sic) being that some folks don't/aren't able to check this board every day, and therefore are deprived of participating. (No, I'm not one of them, I just like time to think...)

Alex, my dear, please consider me very, very disappointed that this round went forward so quickly and without me. [crying in my parcha-e]

Try to look on the bright side folks. Just think how much sooner you can enjoy another game of Hogwash once this one is over.

FWIW, Hogwash to me is first and foremost a parlor game enjoyed by friends using a dictionary, some pencils and paper, and a watch. We'd go through several rounds in an hour and have a hilarious time doing it.

In the future I will be sure to allow whatever time period is industry-standard around here before posting definitions in hopes of avoiding howls of protest. Of course there is no sticky thread regarding the Hogwash rules but previous threads have indicated that this is the result of the recent upgrade to the bulletin board software. If they can ever be re-posted I hope they will indicate exactly how much time is expected in a round. To that I would add that it is unfair to the other players for a player to post their thoughts eliminating certain definitions. If I were the author of definition X then I would be mighty put out to read someone's deconstruction of it for all others to see.

Yes, there is, but to see it, you have to open whatever thread is listed first in W&F, then click Next. I couldn't get tsuwm to do it again, and I didn't want to copy and post it because my name appears too daggoned much as it is.

fwiw, I completely disagree, and most strongly. This is one of my favourite parts of people's responses in the game!
