    "The hilarious bluffing game!"


    Welcome one and all to Census' newest game addition: Bluffin' Balderdash! Based on the popular board game Balderdash, we now have the privilege of having our very own JC version just for you!

    Part of the large appeal for this game is the fact that it requires no extra knowledge or research to play. All you need is the ability to write. The results are all up to your wit and discernment. A clever game indeed.

    For those of you who have played the board game, this will be very familiar to you. However, please still read this opening post so you know how the game converts onto the forums!

    Following are the simple rules and hows of the game:

    Objective:

    "To invent a phony definition for each word in play that could be mistaken by the other players as the correct definition. To identify and choose the correct definition for each word in play."

    Hows:

    1. Each round starts after I post a word. The words that I post will be obscure and you will have never heard of them before. You are not supposed to recognise them. Each of these words has a meaning.

    2. Your job is to create your own phony meaning (definition) for the word. It may be as long or short or convoluted as you like. Often the crazier, the better. Once you have created your meaning, you give that meaning to me. Do not tell anyone else what it is.

    3. When I have received everyone's meaning I will then show them to everyone, including the real meaning of the word. You then have to guess which meaning is the real one. The only clue you have to your advantage is your instinct.

    4. The aim is to guess the real answer, but also to get people to guess your meaning. That is how you score.

    Scoring:

    You receive 2 points for picking the right meaning at the end of each round. For every person that guesses your meaning as the right one, you get 1 point. Often people receive more points because multiple people guessed their meaning than because they chose the correct one. You may guess for your own meaning as a bluff to lead other people on, but you will not score a point off of your own guess. In addition, if your meaning receives a guess, you must participate in that round yourself by guessing for somebody else's meaning or even for your own to be eligible to collect any points for the guess(es) on your meaning. Points are cumulative and at the end of the ten rounds of play the person with the most points is the winner.

    If there is ever a case of a tie at first place after the game has finished, it will be decided by a count back on the rounds. The person with the highest number of correct guesses is declared the winner. If it is still even, the person with the highest number of guesses for an individual round will take victory.

    To add some flare to the game, the host, the person you listen to, that which is me, can earn points as well. Which also means that it is possible, oh yes it is, that I can win. If nobody is to guess the correct meaning for a particular round, I collect a nice round of 3 points. Otherwise, I am scoreless. Carry on, ladies and gentlemen.

    Rules of the hows:

    1. Each round will be posted as close to midnight (12 a.m.) boardtime as I can.

    2. From the time I post the word for the round, you have 48 hours to PM me with your meaning. It would be smart for you, and helpful to me, if you spelt words correctly and did not do any typos. Since this game wi

    I'm 'fraid so for this game, _princess_leia_. Spectactors are always welcome though. :D


    And we have our ten! Excellent!! [face_mischief] Expect your first round, ladies and gentlemen, to begin in less than a couple of hours, as planned.

    Enjoy!

    And it begins. We now have ten players;

    1. TheBoogieMan
    2. Kyptastic
    3. KissMeImARebel
    4. Zebra3
    5. JediVegeta
    6. Rogue1-and-a-half
    7. Grand_Admiral_Grant
    8. DarthBabe
    9. Rebel_Padawan
    10. neeldawg66

    So let's start this baby off. The word for the first round of Bluffin' Balderdash, is:

    connidation


    Remember, PM me your definitions. You have 48 hours to get it to me, so there's plenty of time (I hope!).

    This will be an interesting round for results, I think, as it is the first one. Enjoy! :D

    Edit: So many people are talking about game socks... it's highly likely that only one person will lose, so don't fret yourselves out too much! Oh, unless you plan on missing all the rounds. :p/>/>

    And received.

    By the way, I forgot to add that if you have any questions, feel free to post them or PM me directly. I'm always open to any sort of feedback as the game progresses or if you're unsure of anything, I'm your man. ;)

    Also, feel free to use this thread for whatever other game talk you would like. Personally, I think I'm going to win this game. [face_whistling]
