I tried reading the rules, but I fell asleep... ;0) So I should just email all my ideas for faux meanings, right? I've done similar with a different group, opposite, actually, where we made up the faux words from a given definition; also quite fun! I will ask one question (which is probably in the rules that I can't get through so please just answer it, LOL!): how many different definitions are allowed per person? Thanks!!! :0)

>how many different definitions are allowed per person?
only one, to encourage participation by many; i.e, to discourage domination by a few!
this also encourages you to be selective, of your best. we wait a week to give more folks a chance to see it, and some wait a while to let their creative juices simmer.

Loc: this too shall pass
the rulz got so convoluted because:
1) the game was crudely adapted from one normally played in the wild,
with a group sitting around a big table
b) they evolved over a long period of time
difficultimpossible to get folks to agree to anything online
iv) but always remember rule A, the points don't matter

I take it the whole thing also works on an honor system that assumes no one would be so crass as to look up the correct answer. That's one of the main differences between playing it online and playing it in the flesh - there is no way you can know someone hasn't cheated.
But what about where someone knows the answer to begin with? Should they declare that? (not that I do in this case)

What's the fun in cheating?
Some have recused themselves and some go ahead and play anyway, choosing the (wrong) daffynition they think the most worthy of a vote. In the latter case it's probably best not to declare that one knows the correct answer since that person's answer will then be known to be incorrect.
