    The category is WORDS - PM me what you think the definition is.

  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

  6. TomB Administrative Assistant

    I'm guessing: 5. # A small fishing boat, built without pitch, once used in Indonesia
  7. Melkor Active Member

    I like number 11, and as an aside, I love our current achoholic beverages, but if I'm right, then I have something new to try out.

    Just to be clear, my answer is 11: An alcoholic beverage popular in several North African countries
  8. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    number two. It's probably rubbish, but I want to give points to whoever thought of that..

    Here's the answer list with the people who submitted which answer after it:

    1. The scientific name of the substance secreted by snails to create their shells (DarthFerret)
    2. Harmless supernatural beings who live among bushes near the sea (CORRECT ANSWER)
    3. A professional practitioner of the art of calligraphy (Melkor)
    4. An early precursor to a fancy water-spitting sculpture (Jigglypuff)
    5. A small fishing boat, built without pitch, once used in Indonesia (Oversoul)
    6. Name for the generation of Japanese people who live in solitude and only socialize online (Limited)
    7. The surname of a Yakuza who was thrown out for dishonoring themselves by brutally murdering another overtly (BigBlue)
    8. A type of cheese made from sheep's milk and produced in the Samoan Islands (TomB)
    9. A Native American Rainmaker's ceremonial garb (Ransac)
    10. A traditional dance performed during ceremonies of coastal Indians that "thanks" the oceans for their bounty (train)
    11. An alcoholic beverage popular in several North African countries (EricBess

    So aside from the voted above, privately Ransac and DarthFerret voted for TomB's answer, and BigBlue guessed the correct answer.

    So the tally is:

    TomB has 2 people guess his answer.
    Ransac had 2 people guess his answer.
    Oversoul and EricBess each had 1 person guess their answer.
    The correct answer had 2 people guess it.
    And Jigglypuff voted for his own answer.

    I didn't think it had to be said, but though you're allowed to vote for your own answer, you get zero points for it. Sorry if that was unclear.

    Scores:

    Ransac 2
    TomB 2
    BigBlue 1
    EricBess 1
    Limited 1
    Oversoul 1
  10. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Huh? I get no points for guessing the correct answer from the list?
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Why are so many people unlisted in the last section, "scores"? Shouldn't we all be there?
  12. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Apologies to Limited - yes, you should have a point. That's corrected above.

    Everyone else has 0 points. As the game isn't "set" - people can answer whenever they like, just keeping track of the people who have points is easier.
  13. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    WOOT! First time ever that I've been in the lead (tied or not!)

    Ransac, cpa trash man
  14. TomB Administrative Assistant

    We should also get a point each for submitting the answers in phase 1, shouldn't we? :confused:
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I was debating that and I think that sort of skews the results... like EricBess wasn't able to guess in the final phase due to his schedule. So I'm just going to have anyone be able to submit in the first phase, but then only those people who submitted can answer in the second phase.
