Inspired by the number of confusing name changes and whatnot going around. I've just started a new BB. The idea is that we all register and post under new names and try and figure out who is who - without being found out ourselves!

Click here to play

The Rules:

1: If you are the first to correctly guess the identity of another member, you get 5 points.

2: If you make an incorrect guess, you lose 1 point.

3: While you may change your writing style, argue a point of view you don't agree with, etc, you may not actually lie. Otherwise it becomes impossible to determine anything.

4: You are not compelled to answer a question if you don't want to - especially if that question would give away some information that may clue others in (i.e. how old are you?). The exception, of course, is if they make a guess as to your identity - you must tell them if they are correct or not.

5: You do not lose points when you are discovered, and may continue trying to guess who other people are. The game ends when everyone has been found out, or at some earlier point if interest starts to lag.

6: Maintain a consistent identity in the game, and no double accounts or anything like that. It'll be complicated enough as is.

7: So you can't be identified by your email address, everyone is to use the same one. Use hamporkcorn@yahoo.com when you register.

Any techniques are fine. Start a debate and see who argues what view and how. Start a joke topic, and see what people find funny. Do whatever.

I'll let someone else make the first post, otherwise I'll be caught immediately. Have fun! :)

I am Bill The Blinking Farking Bleep. I thought I'd be able to disallow people to send me emails, but apparently I can't, so anyone could figure that out by looking at my profile. I'll have to start a new account.
So everyone, register a free account with something like Yahoo or GMail before registering, so people can't figure it out through your profile.

Drat.

So, new rule, no cheating. And if you're particularly worried, do as ADoS says and get a free email account.

Also, it won't let you change the email address. I guess I'll have to make a new account, also.

I was "The Messenger Killed The Martial," by the way.

Stupid freaking Yahoo decided to require a credit card or parental permission to register an account. So I propose an idea.

Everyone uses the same email address! Which should we use?

Zxquez has registered a Yahoo! account without problems. Odd. Anyway, it's hamporkcorn@yahoo.com
Everyone use that as your email address.

The word "nukleidos" strikes a deep bell within me, but I cannot quite place it.

Sounds sort of like nuklearpower, a vaguely well-known webcomic.

The email thing? No, I don't mind.

(Aww, I feel like I have a purpose now! *hugsself*)

I used to look at Nuklear Power, but then it just got annoying.

We should keep track of who's been found out so far.

So far,

ADoS and
Stughalf

have been found out.

I feel sad, being a newbie that can't participate. =\ I'm not well-known enough for anyone to be able to guess me. Drat it all!

...And you know what this game reminds me of? It reminds me of the maze game they were playing at the beginning of "The Source of Magic" by Piers Anthony... an awesome book, that is. [/offtopic]

Ah well, I would have been off with my guess anyway. I think "Esther Nukleidos" or something similar was BSC's moniker for sometime. Turns out Frank was BSC.

And someone thought he was I! Someone thought Dios was Aran! I'm so proud... the honor. :cool:

Update:

ADoS and
Stughalf and
Frank and
Arancaytar.

(Frank admitted to being BSC some time ago)

Edit: Damn you... mmmh... Drakey?
Edit2: Nah. Impossible.

Update:

ADoS and
Stughalf and
Frank and
Arancaytar and
Zxquez and
Thuryl and
TM.

EDIT: Arancaytar, it was Thruyl.
EDIT 2: I was guessed as Alec, TM, TGM, MM, Kelandon, and Thuryl. Each of those guesses surprised me. I feel special.

(well so far no one has expressed anger over being guessed to be wrong person. How long will that last?
(feel the same way, Aran.))

I had a question, rules wise:

How many times can we guess? Unlimited? I don't see a problem with that but. . . what about if someone with a lot of time on his side decided to start gussing like crazy, say he picks a name and guesses twenty different people for that same name at once?

No limit on number of guesses, but since you lose a point for every wrong guess, you'd better have at least a 20% chance of being right.

My Name is not Important.

I thought I had a good chance of being the last found out since no one had even mentioned my name. Oh well, another day, different game.

And yes mung you are very obvious who you are by the way you type. I very rarely memorize member numbers or notice signitures so when you switched to PD your '... :D ' revealed you yet again. I think the only sig that I do use for identification is TM's as being so long it's pretty hard not to notice.
