    New game! Like I promised, BB is following the Tribond game.

    For those who aren't familiar with this, what happens is that I post a question. You have until the deadline to post what you think is the right answer. I then post the list of possible answers and you have until the deadline to pick from that list. Only people who gave me possible answers in the first half of the round can guess from the final list in the second half of the round.

    If you give me the right answer in the first half, you get one point BUT you are not allowed to pick from the final list. Otherwise, in the second half, if you pick the right answer you get a point, PLUS you get a point each time someone else picks your answer. And this is NEW: you get an extra point just for being able to choose from the final list. This is to "discourage" netlookups of just getting a guaranteed point in the first half. So if you go to the second half, you have a chance of earning LOTS of points, rather than just one.

    Again, the gentlemen's rule of NO NET LOOKUPS is in effect.

    Here we go:

    The first category is Words.

    Give me a definition of this word: ALACTAGA.

    You have until Thursday, 11/30 by 7:00 AM EST to give me a possible answer. Any questions, PM me.
