The known rules:

1: No-one may post more than one 'move' at a time*
*time means within one post or within two posts not separated by another person's post or 1 week.

2: After the first post of each new page, play will stop* at which point I will post players' scores after which play will resume.
*that means no more posts guys.

3: Any discussion not stated as out of game (OOG) will be considered for possible 'moves'

You may discuss the rules among each other but it might benefit you to keep them secret as well.

good luck.

Are you attempting to post in a fashion that would score, even if you do not get a score?

That would help us get started before the beginning of the second page.

Hmm.

How to maximize one's score in an unknown metric? The only information we have is chosen by you, to produce an interesting game.

[OOG] I will say that it is impossible to have a negative score and the only way to lost points is through someone else's *move*

Also an addendum to rule one: Any out-of-game posts which contain no in-game post are not counted as a separating post for the given value of "time" [OOG]

Ah what the heck, I'll play too. Although, at this rate even making it to page 2 sounds like a stretch!

[OOG]addendum of rule 1: No-one may post more than one 'move' at a time*
*time means within one post or within two posts not separated by another person's post or 1 week.
If anyone posts more than one move at a time only the first move will be counted. This may have seemed obvious but I wanted it in writing anyway. Carry on. [OOG]

As a semi-permanent lurker of these here forums, I feel like you declaring victory is somewhat premature Funky Honky.

...and Dodger receives the kick off. He's off to the races! But here comes two defenders...who dive too early! Dodger clears both of them in a single leap! He's past the 50 yard line folks! The 40! He dodges* a couple more defenders. He's home free! No one ahead of him! The 30! He... could... go.. NOPE. He trips and falls. The ball is down.

Dude. Shoelaces!

*groan.

Sitting in the winner's circle, Funky wonders: "Why the heck are those folks still running around?"

OK, I'm really only in it to get to page 2 and prove that Funky Honky hasn't won (yet).

A new challenger appears!

No, wait, that's not a new challenger. That's the first person to respond to the OP.

It's a pity - a new challenger would provide us with more information per page.

But if we relied on new challengers, we'd probably never get to that second page...
