Default Guess it Game

This is a game I am sure has been played before but wanted to start one up just for fun. There is a point system and rules are very simple. If everyone plays by the rules is can be very fun.

1. Labeling of images is in this format.. A1 . The A stands for the image and the 1 is the clue for that image. So A2 would be the same image but clue 2 for that image.

2. There are up to 4 clues for each image and scoring is based on which clue the image is guessed. Guessing on the first clue gets 8 points, second clue 6 points, third clue 4 points and fourth clue 2 points.

3. A clue will remain active for a total of 10 incorrect guesses, at which time no more guesses can be made on that clue and the next clue for that image will be posted.

4. If 10 incorrect guesses are given on the final clue the answer image will be posted and no points given.

5. A round will contain a total of 10 images. That is a possible 40 points total. At the end of the round if there is a tie, the person(s) that tie will play a final image alone to determine a winner.

6. Guesses are viewed by time posted. If two people guess correctly, the winner is the person who guessed first.

7. Guesses need to be somewhat specific. If you think you see a blade in the clue you cannot simple answer "something you cut with", as it may be blade to a knife or possibly a pair of scissors.

8. An edited "Guess" response will count as 2 guesses.

Play fair. Guess only twice per clue. If you guess wrong twice and then figure out the answer, wait until the next clue and post the answer, assuming nobody guesses it first.

I will edit this message and keep scores updated here. As for incorrect guesses, in order to keep the thread responses down, I will not let each person know when they have guessed wrong. I will however alert when a correct guess is made as soon as I see it.

EDIT>>> To keep the game moving, in addition to each players 2 guesses, anyone that has already used their two guesses gets a third bonus guess but only after one hour of any incorrect guess. So for example if Hards80 used his second guess at 8:10, he or anyone else that has used their 2 guesses could guess again at 9:10. Of course anyone who has only used 1 or non of their guesses can guess at anytime.


Round 2. Score after 3 images

Mike 1 - 16
Kirby - 8

Hmmm.. 35 views and only 2 guesses. Remember each person gets two guesses per clue. So both Hards and DonP have one more guess each on this clue. When there are 10 total incorrect guesses on this clue, currently there are only 2 incorrect, the next clue for this image will be posted.

The first clue usually is. From then on they will normally be less than 100%, showing more of the image itself.

PB&J Sandwich?

I hope not - if that is it, I'll never eat another one.
