Game: The Guessing Game

Postby Kalah » Feb 16 2008, 18:29

This begins fairly simple: I ask a question, you answer it (here in the thread) within 3 days. The awarding of points is where it gets tricky. The questions will sometimes be strange, difficult, even impossible to answer. The point is not necessarily to answer it correctly.

3 points is awarded if you answer a question correctly, but there is a potential to get more than that by answering in a funny and/or original manner. I will judge your answer, and award it with anything up to 5 points for originality. Therefore, not knowing the right answer doesn't preclude you from participating in a question round. How will this work? Here's an example:

I ask the question: "Why did the moose cross the road?"
Correct answer: "To get to the other side."
Original answer: "Because it's a moose form of bungee jumping."

The "correct" answer is known to anybody who's heard the chicken joke before, but if you haven't, you can instead go for originality. Going for originality and a potential 5 points despite knowing the correct answer isn't always a good idea; if your answer is long-winded or I find it unfunny, I might award less than 5 points... I might even give you minus points. This is all up to me, of course, since I am the Game Master Nazi Overlord King. ;)

Now you are overlord too? :) Sounds fun I'm in.

Good. The first question is:

Adam Savage has several mottos. Which is the most important?

Shouldn't that be "...and I'm sure he's not a genius" ?

Not long left now... for those of you who want to secure some points in round one, better get a move on. :)

You got it right. :) Come on, any last-minute takers? I'm going to end the round before I go to bed... which is once I've hammered Milla in backgammon. ;)

Hey, I have played this game twice. In my lifetime. Last time I hadn't got facial hair yet. And I've beaten you once already... ;) Anyway, round #1 is closed. Now, among the many funny phrases uttered on Mythbusters, by far the most familiar is Adam's reality quote, which I've always enjoyed for its grammatical correctness.

"I reject your reality and substitute my own."

Scores after round #1:

ScarlettP - 3p
Zamolxis - 2p
asandir - 1p
Milla - 1p

Entries:

- Lety: "Hey Y'all! Watch this." Just something you'd hear either before a big boom, or before, typically... nothing happens :)
- Zamolxis: You didn't quote it quite accurately :devious:
- asandir: Too... simple. Not howlingly funny either. C'mon, you can do better.
- Milla: Incredibly fitting, lots of fun... but not really a motto to be used a lot, is it...

Round #2:

Huh? Well probably any number of things K is prone to do, he's like an annoyance-automaton. Probably the right answer is something daft that happened four years ago which I can't recall to save my life.

Though raising the topping is quite possible.

He cannot stand on the pizza, can he?

If he's just about to eat it...well, I wouldn't! :lol:
