    At this point, I'd think you'd be more hoping that you can earn four points in one round to avoid banning. :p

    Game 6 finale . . .


    Round 10

    word:
    acalili

    meanings:
    1. A Central American shrub reputed to have the worst smell in the world.
    2. A distressed scream.
    3. A small red flower that attracts insects with its sweet honey smell.
    4. A sweet juice extracted from palm trees.
    5. A two-sided drum with its both ends covered with goatskin and cow tails and decorated with feathers.
    6. A type of food commonly eaten in India.
    7. A wind instrument used by Hawaiian natives.
    8. Numb feeling experienced on awakening.
    9. Plural form of 'acala' meaning "The Immovable Ones" in Sanskrit.
    10. The common name for a species of water lily found in Italy.

    Those ineligible to guess:
    Hammurabi (no definition).

    This guessing round closes, at the latest, in just over one days time at approximately 12 a.m. boardtime. Which gives approximately 42 hours from this post. If all - and only if all - guesses are received before that time, the round will end and we will get on with it.

    Remember to please post both the number and meaning when you post your guess.

    Talk and discussion about the definitions is by all means welcome. Your guess will only be counted once you have clearly posted a number
    and the meaning.

    Do not make that face at me, Tyi-What_Ever, or I will tell one of the admins that you agreed to it and that they should ban your main username for the afformentioned week :p

    Oof. That's an epic fail on my part. Missed the last round and came in last overall. :oops: Well, besides Tyi.

    And I did pretty good last time. Huh.

    Those who didn't guess:
    Hammurabi (no definition).

    And once again the correct meaning receives the highest number of guesses! How does it happen? Well, you tell me. Nice work leia, NYC and Krystal! Kudos to Imrahil as well for his nicely acquired two points.

    Well would you look at that. We've completed another game of Bluffin' Balderdash! Great stuff. So, on to the business of awards. Oh dear. Somebody is not going to be happy ... but somebody else will be delighted! And just who might that be?















    And the winner of Game 6 is... MarasFire!!!



    Tenth round scores:

    Winner:
    1. MarasFire - 16

    2. JediNemesis - 16
    3. SWBob - 12
    3. The_Loyal_Imperial - 12
    5. KrystalBlaze - 11
    6. _princess_leia_ - 9
    6. s65horsey - 9
    8. Imrahil - 8
    8. NYCitygurl - 8
    10. Hammurabi - 3

    Last placement:
    11. Tyi - 0





    You might notice something in those scores. Yep. There was a draw. This hasn't happened since the very first game of Balderdash! And that's not the only thing that was a first for this game. I was scoreless. :(

    So to inform everybody:
    Okay!

    Let's see ... Nem picked the correct definition ... four times!

    :D

    Mara got it right ... five times!

    [face_dancing]



    But oh so close it was! We nearly had a second-time champion of Balderdash! ...something that is still yet to happen. Congratulations to the both of you, Nem and Mara, but unfortunately only Mara walks away with the title.

    Massive congrats to our winner Marasfire! A first time player takes the crown. Enjoy a week of colours my lady! :D



    So onto the other business ... of last place. 21st receives a quick game ban for vanishing and as such missing "four or more rounds with no warning" as is stipulated in the first post. Which reminds me ... Hammu, how many rounds did you miss?

    Let's see...

    Oh. Four/>/>

    Wow, congratulations, MarasFire!!

    Tyi, inform 506/LAJ/GK/Dajuan/hal/Mac that you need to be banned and forced to post as Tyi-What_Ever for a week :p Or, wear these colors (also known as anti-solar power :p ).

    Congrats, Mara! [:D]

    Tyi, I'd much rather see you post as Tyi-What_Ever than wear those dreadful colours known as anti-solar power. [face_plain]

    :oops: And I almost thought I'd escape the gameban if you failed to win any, Tyi. Eh, oh well...

    Though if you want to get technical, one of those rounds I 'missed' I actually sent in a definition, but you messed up on the word and we had to have a re-do, and I only failed to send in a definition the second time around...

    But whatever, just as long as I don't miss sign-ups for our next game. ;)
