I am not sure that Steave is correct, the rules this round seem different. As far as I can tell, each entry must have two long compound sentences, although I am most likely mistaken, it has been known to happen. Three short sentences follow. Perhaps I am right. I am hoping for points.

I who tried did well in this past round. He was impressed by the entries. I will perhaps find this next round easier. One way of considering it is as an exercise in empathy.

Let us suppose there is a person who wants to score well. You will need to employ the first, the second and also the third, the rest is wide open.

He failed pretty hard last round. I made it much more straightforward this time, though. You think we can handle it?

You scored well in the second round. From what I said, this implies that it tried. But he scored badly in the first round. She will probably be unable to catch up. What do we think?

They are enjoying this game. And it thinks it has spotted a useful pattern.

He who plays seems to be having fun. I who score and construct have my work cut out. Having scored low, I may do better this round.

This was almost played with empathy not excluding the self but was decided against.

I am beginning to understand this game. His directions, while vague, are making more and more sense. You realize that the game is quite fun.

He wonders about his score, considering he did not post in the second round. I hope I will be merciful. You are more clever than he, but perhaps not as clever as me. They will be very interested in his performance. You will just have to wait.

I'm starting to really enjoy this game. It's definitely more fun than work. Sure, we recently got our quarterly bonuses in, but she who keeps the books is always yelling at us and then messing up our paychecks. He who begat me ordered me a video card but it got lost in the mail, and after I installed the replacement, all my games stopped loading.

You are reading this post. You are enjoying this game, too. You like the Sluggite in the orange shirt hiding from rabid puffin dingoes. You think she is clever and fun. You are correct.

It was realized far too late that certain errors had been made in the construction of this round, making scoring difficult. Leniency, it was decided, was preferable to severity. It thus transpired that the scores were perhaps better than they might otherwise have been.

Additionally, a new job was started coincidentally with the new year. A certain regretful tardiness on behalf of the management could thus be noted.

It transpired as usual, a decent amount of points in the first round or two and then confusion and the points no longer arrive.
