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.

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.

The word for game 1, round 1 is:

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.

Not including Hectic this round because he's VLA:

limnophilous

the definitions:
a medical condition characterised by fungal growth on limbs.
Having lakes or ponds as a preferred habitat.
describing the motion of waves and ripples upon the sand as the tide goes in or out.
Having a plentiful amount of lymph nodes; commonly used by doctors to describe a cluster of cells in the neck.
Attracting wealth or extravagance.

Porous sedimentary stone.

Pick one of the definitions in this order:
Haschel Cedricson
Bellaphant
Nahdia
dsjstr
Kenna
pablito

One of the definitions is the correct one. You CANNOT pick your own definition. If you want to provide an explanation of your pick you can or if you want to argue with someone else's explanation.

Hectic did not submit an answer before the other 6 players so I am not including him for round 2.

The answers are:
A type of pun.
The state of being lost in thought.
A fire lit for the purpose of destroying something.
The medical condition of having broken many bones in rapid succession.
The measurement of viscosity in olive oil.
A public apology proceeding a batch of reviewer complaints.
A reflection in a broken mirror.

pick one of the definitions in the following order. Again you are not allowed to pick your own definition. Picks by pm are allowed if you think you may not be available when it is your turn.

Wikipedia: A bouleuterion (Greek: βουλευτήριον, bouleutērion), also translated as council house, assembly house, and senate house, was a building in ancient Greece which housed the council of citizens (βουλή, boulē) of a democratic city state. These representatives assembled at the bouleuterion to confer and decide about public affairs. There are several extant bouleuteria around Greece and its former colonies. It should not be confused with the Prytaneion, which housed the executive council of the assembly and often served as the boule's mess hall.

A Greek voting house - Bellaphant(correct guess)

The enzymes that make up the kidney of a pig.- dsjstr
any item on an ordered list that makes reference to the list as a whole - The Bulge
The shortest path between two destinations. - HC
A shelf to store billiard balls - pablito
a short barreled gun - Kanna
A symetrically decorated bedroom. - Nahda
A governmental meeting place, often found in ancient greek city states. - actual

2 guessed billiards(pablito)
2 guessed guns.(Kanna)
1 chose shortest path(HC)
1 chose bedroom(Nahdia)

Bellaphant - 10
HC - 8
Kanna - 7
Nahdia - 6
pablito - 2
The Bulge - 1

Well, Greek and city states are both part of the wikipedia entry. So what's the gripe? That round 4 was also a greek word? Or that another answer used city states? Yeah, trying to throw players off might be part of the strategy.
