Rules:
A random obscure, probably long, word is chosen from the english dictionary.
Each player creates their own definition of the word and pms it to the gamerunner.
The gamerunner shuffles each created definition, and the real definition, and reveals them to the players, minus the names of the creators.
Each player votes on what they think the real definition is.
If you guess the right definition you get 1 point. If someone guesses your answer you get 1 point. First to 20 points wins.

What happens if you submit the correct answer?

I suppose you get 1 point for guessing the correct answer.

So the players select the word or you will be choosing a word?

From Wikipedia:

The board games Balderdash, Dictionary Dabble[6], Flummoxed, and Weird Wordz are based on Fictionary. In one round of the board game Derivation, players describe or fabricate a word's etymology; players who provide a correct etymology receive one point for doing so, but their entries are then removed from play, and they lose their chance to receive multiple points by drawing multiple votes from other players. Similarly, in the board game Wise and Otherwise, the Picker randomly chooses a quotation and reads the beginning, and other players try to create realistic endings to the quotation.

Wait. Too few definitions isn't fun.

id say see if we can get up to 6 and then let people join between rounds if they want. it's a game where it's pretty much fine for people to come and go, yeah?

It depends on if you want it to be ongoing or to have a finite ending like 20 points.

The word for game 1, round 1 is:

limnophilous

Please pm me a definition within 24 hours. If everyone pms me sooner we can start the guessing phase sooner. Obviously you are guessing using your imagination and using the internet or other people is not allowed.
