saimon, I’m surpised anyone gave any “birds” answer other than the name of a bird! But that’s why I finished poorly. :)

Chuckeled @ Foul Ole Ron’s brown – I don’t even know why. But this is so far best 1-pointer of the decade!

Have you seen one (Commodore 64)? Can you remember the colour of the keyboard/mainboard/computer?

glass: wine(13)

I know it’s not an 1-point but it counts as one :)

2010-02-18
MichaeI X

@yper:
Well, if you played this “glass” round without spying Past Games, Congratulations, just 3 below max !!!
(But I guess you found ‘glass’ in the ‘wine’ round and replaced ‘cup’ to be super smart ;)

2010-02-18
ypercube

No, I looked at the Past games, I just took a bet that a glass of wine would be better than a cup (related to glass).

8 people played “cup” (besides the 8 PastGamers who won the round) while 12 played “wine” from a total of 30 (NonPastGamers). I needed 4 more “winers” to become a winner and not a whiner :)

2010-02-18
Rex Moore

So is that how 8 people tied for a perfect score this game... by looking at a past Empathy game?

2010-02-18
ypercube

Yep, at least 9 people looked at previously played games and 8 decided to follow the exact 10 words that won iin th eprevious round of “glass”.

It doesn’t always work but most of the times when a topic is repeated, replaying winning words will get you to a – crowded – first place.

2010-02-20
MichaeI X

and besides the really questionable choice “cup” ( I had similar thoughts like yper, just eventually favoring “crystal” ),
the hardest part of that round was skipping glasse, who won so many of those past games!

I couldn’t help it. I started 1100 games at once...
I’m not timing out anymore though

2010-04-02
ypercube

1100 games, on first thought, wow!

On second thought, not so wow. Can you start 1100000 games?

2010-04-02
somar96

no you can’t. because games will start ending. but 3000 is possible I say.

2010-04-02
Aganju

the question should be how many can you start and seriously play (without timing any out)
I know you can do 500. Did so for a while. 1000 is a real stretch, but if you play full time (like 14 h a day, 7 days a week) it should work. That would be about the limit though, or you would go crazy.

@somar96: No, we don’t want you to try it.

2010-04-06

no Magic the Gathering either.

Tarot however got 5 points, the highest from non-standard-deck card games.

freecell (4) only!

2010-04-09

freecell is not a card game, but a computer game (that displays cards)... Maybe that’s why?

2010-04-10
dgreene11235

Tarot? Thats not even a game its a fortune telling tool. lol

2010-04-12
dgreene11235

OKAY GUYS! Moment of truth is approaching. I have a feeling there are going to be A LOT of 1-pointers this time, and I bet the top ten scores will be unusually low... This is a topic that there are so many more than 10 answers. I bet there will only be a 3-4 answers worth more than 20 points, and the rest will be 12 or below... Lets see if I am right... I hope I’m wrong...=P

2010-04-12
MichaeI X

Any “fortune telling tool” is just a game :-)

2010-04-13
Aganju

MichaeI X, I disagree. It is a blatant offense to any self-valueing game to count things like Tarot as one! Tarot might have its values and reasons for existence, and I actually find it interesting (though I don’t believe in it), but is is not a game.
At least not what 99% of readers here would mean when they say ‘Tarot’. I am aware that there is a game with the same name in existence, but it is not well known, and it is not what people would think is meant with ‘Tarot’.

2010-04-13

not well known to who ? in france it is very well known (i think...)

@dgreen11235 glad I wasn’t alone, the question was posed in english so I answered in english.
If resume is french it isn’t part of basic vocab I was taught.

actually I got some points on “French” :P

2010-04-22

The french word is Resumeé (if your browser does not show that, two ‘e’ at the end, and the latter one has an upward accent); it is spoken the same way. ‘Resume’ is the americanised version.

Did you play rabbit or horse?

2010-09-09
FatPhil

Rabbit was my weak entry.

Whilst horse salami is one of my favourites, I don’t know if I’d ever have thought it would be an empathic answer, so would never have opted for that and got the theoretical maximum.

Is horse really that commonly considered food internationally? To a brit, according to my parents' tales, it was only a last resort during the war years, and nothing that you’d now chose to eat. Ditto rye bread. (Which is completely crazy – the Estonians have it right and so prefer their rye-bread that it has a complimentary name, and white bread has an almost insulting name, it’s almost not considered real bread.)

I haven’t played GoE for a very long time but I still ocasionaly follow it. About Rome I thought “wasn't build in a day although a funny answer will be probably be a one-pointer”. It seems I was right. On the other hand, I though that “roads” would be worth a few points since the saying “all roads leads to Rome” but here seems that I was wrong.

Finally!!!! I have been suggesting “poetry” as a category since the times when people were complaining about the commonality of “sex” as an answer to almost any category, and similarly about the lack of choices that would preclude “sex”. (So this was long before “sex” was outlawed). I guess it’s been in the 8 on offer at least a dozen times in that time, and now it’s chosen I can finally start suggesting something new!

I’m surprised that ‘USA’, ‘America’, and ‘United States’ all three made it in the list, the only other country aside from Greece. As if they had the greatest democracy. It’s more a republic, where people vote for the representative with the most signs with his name out on the street, and the representatives then vote for their party. Whoever has the most votes does not necessarily win, it’s rather by arbitrary historical weighting. And if the current person in power doesn’t like the result, he makes them recount, until he likes it. Is that democracy? [Warning, there is sarcasm hidden in this paragraph]

Actually, I’m not surprised. Americans are much more convinced than any other country that they have the best democracy in the world, and so it was to be expected. I actually made points on predicting it too.

If it’s any consolation, Cox was high on my list too, but just outside the top 10.

I agonized over keeping or dropping stalagmite (10) and stalactite (10), but eventually dropped them. Upgrading with either one would have given me three wins in a row, which would have been a nice debut... :)

It’s an interesting feature of the game. The “right” answers are often wrong, because the scoring rewards the most popular answers, even if they aren’t accurate.

I rejected a host of very common Chinese names and Spanish names (including two that are now in the top 10 of the USA, in addition to South America).

Being logical and correct often interferes with tuning into the hive mind... :-)
