Hello all, I'm starting a new game. Your posts can score points and change the game state. There is not much game state, but it can dramatically change the score of a post.
Splitting a post into two consecutive posts will not change its score. Please do not edit posts so we do not have retroactive game state changes.

I will periodically declare players' scores. I will not wait for a new page. Also, my posts affect game state, and if I were playing and not just judging, this post would have scored ten points.

Oooh. I wonder if I'll be as good at this game as I am at Steave's game. Well, there's only one way to find out!

I will play this game. I am not sure if I can score points but I will look forward to a points reveal nonetheless.
I wonder if my appreciation for this style of game will continue with me in a player's seat.

Considering your history with my iteration, I don't think you've much to worry about here.

Well, now I have to escalate this posting arms race and get a third post it! Although I must say kitoba, it looks like your using a Steave game strategy in drachefly's game and I would be willing to bet money that drachefly's rules will not be in any way similar. Of course, we don't know anything at all about how this game is going to work at the moment. We will have to wait for the first score post for that.

We did have the first post to help(?) Should I say increase the confusion?
It's a ten point scoring post. I couldn't make any of my ideas work. (he says, pretending he had any ideas at all.)

How much money? I - I - I'm using multiple strategies to multiply my information gathering. Of course, that will make it harder to trace back which strategy worked if I do make any poiints.

Hmmmm.... may have to rethink rethink this.

I generally do not play this style of game on WGARS, but Dodger 77's enthusiasm has infected me. I am in!

Can someone poke Drachefly and remind him about this game?

Sorry! I didn't quit, I just totally forgot. >.>

Steave has six points, no one else has any, and this would have scored 4.

Dang. This game is tough. I will continue to play this game though. I thought I was on to something just now but it didn't pan out.
