I am actually more interested in the idea of the game itself. Or games in general. So if you do this from time to time where and how and so forth?



Who am I to deny Mutemaler a chance to play? The first rule:



1. Players take turns to add a rule to this game.



Your go.

I have no idea if this is what you mean, but could I say this? Its an idea I have been toying with myself for a while, inventing games in my head.

It is common to think of winning as eliminating the other(s), losing as being eliminated (or a correlate of this in one of its many forms, an end of some sort).

So I'll say these are both losing.

If you are eliminated, you lose. If you eliminate everyone else, you lose?

4. Rules must proceed in numerical order.
On May 4, 2012 - 6:11 PM, Sapientia responded: Annotation: the above rule applies to this game.
On May 4, 2012 - 6:11 PM, Banno responded: 4a. That order shall start with the last rule, and proceed to the second last, and so on until the first rule be reached.
On May 4, 2012 - 6:14 PM, Sapientia responded: confused
On May 4, 2012 - 6:18 PM, Dragon_Lance responded: Rule 4b: Rules have no time occurence: I.E. Time applies not to current rules set after rule is made.

7) Nobody shall be caught not drinking (from the rules of the Philosophy Department of the University of Woolloomooloo).
On May 4, 2012 - 7:10 PM, Banno responded: 7a) Rule 7. is replaced by rule 7).
On May 4, 2012 - 7:19 PM, Sapientia responded: If replacing rule 7. invalidates it, then 7a) is invalid. If not, then rule 7. is still valid.
On May 4, 2012 - 7:22 PM, Banno responded: If 7a) is valid, 7. is invalid; therefore 7) is valid. If 7) is valid, then 7a) is valid. If 7. If 7. is invalid, then rules may be invalidated. So those who accept 7. may not change the rules, while those who accept 7) may.

I accept 7) and therefore may invalidate rules. You accept 7. and therefore are stuck with the contradiction of invalidating 7)

My approach is the only way to keep the game consistent.

Which reminds me...

8) Aside from Rule 8) which shall be understood in English, all other Rules shall be understood as being in French, whether or not the words/letters of the rules are intelligible in French. The game itself, however, shall be played in Chinese.
