1. Downtime notice - Oct. 17, 2017

    Well, it's a permanent downtime. After 22 years of service it's time for a final goodbye. Our live production servers will be taken offline on October 17th. The simple fact is that there are plenty of better ways to get the secrets hidden in games and connect with other gamers. There are plenty of Youtube channels and Twitch streams that will show games played at their best, something that plain text and screenshots can't convey. If you want to connect to other gamers outside of those services, there are plenty of Discord servers that offer a direct and engaging community experience.

    Please visit our friends at GameFAQs.com or IGN.com for information such as codes, guides, reviews, etc. They're the real deal and have always been respectful and honest about how they operate. Our ghost pages can be found on Archive.org for those times that you'd like to take a look back at how things were.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed content and time managing our community, and especially to you, our dear visitors!

    Our last words: "Up ,Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, Select, Start"

    Why didn't you just give Andy the X and let the next responder go? I'm confused... Schteve, you seem to be changing the rules and things as we go along. I would assume if Andy didn't answer (which he didn't), you'd give him the X and move onto the next responder for our team (and since the order is f*cked up, I don't know who that is), and they would be able to answer cake within 24 hours, which gives us the win. I don't see why you're trying to go with a new question and completely wipe out this one when there is an alternative answer that would stick to the rules of the game... :confused:

    I don't understand how you jumped to the conclusion that instead of just letting the next responder go (since I don't believe we got a single strike this round), you want to restart the whole round. Seems unnecessary.

    If the majority of our team wants to concede then we'll do that.

    I'd just as soon NOT continue with the pall of IMPROPRIETY hanging over whichever team continues after this. Let them have that distinction, of which I will constantly remind them and everyone else. :)

    You're so delusional... Seriously, we answered every single item; even if Andy got a strike, we still had two strikes left. Do you really think the next two members of our team weren't going to be able to respond? Like Travis said, "cake" was our next answer, which we discussed as a team... Not sure how you were going to win, unless the rest of our team were incapacitated for 24-48 hours. Sure, it's possible, but not probable.

    We won, and we know this, so if Team X really wants to take a dirty win then feel free. Our consciences will be free.

    Awesome. Then ask other people to not complain too. :tease:

    I'll sit here and wait for your next complaint, like this new question having more points possible or something.

    Just posting to confirm the forfeit. Not sure if it was necessary, but yeah. I know at least 60% of the team agreed to forfeit.

    We went out of turn because of a mistake the host made, and we're being punished for it. At worst we should have gotten a strike, not lost all the damn points of the round. Beyond that I don't feel like wasting who knows how long on another round. Take your dirty win. We'll be sure to remind you of it.

    Okay? I didn't see a rule that said, "If someone goes out of turn, the round will restart and teams will forfeit their points." There could be a rule that said that, I just didn't see it.

    Plus, this isn't real family feud. Teams discuss the answers amongst themselves; we did nothing illegal, and certainly nothing warranting a restart of the game, much less a penalty.

    EDIT: that was to klown

    You don't have to throw out ****, Schteve. We just forfeited the game. Seriously, calm down. Just let Team X advance.

    Yeah, so stop listening to Klown think it's your fault. :tease:



    Yeah, no.




    You didn't "lose" any points because your team hadn't scored the ones on the board yet. You lost control over a round that had points accumulating.



    They're the ones who want to play another round fairly.



    Obviously things would be easier if there was a rule that specified what happens with out of turn play. But since there is neither that nor a rule that says you get a strike when I f*ck things up, I'm forced to come up with an appropriate alternative.

    Why do you guys even think I should do something different based on the number of strikes you have? There's no way you would have let me give you a strike if you already had two. You would have demanded the redo while Klown wished for a strike.



    I can't use the question anymore since it's been posted publicly.

    Also, satire.



    Also also, I have to keep Team Strong Style in existence until all five team members say they will quit. It's possible for a team with a single active person to still win. :tease:

    You never actually answered why you chose to just do a completely new game in favor of just giving us a strike for that round and moving onto the next person...

    EDIT: Nevermind, you just did. Even though you were the one who jumped to reveal the answer. So you basically f*cked up twice, but we're the ones who are suffering, whether directly or indirectly because of your decision. So you can at least understand why we're withdrawing, I hope.

    You're only doing what Team X feels is fair, you're not doing or considering what we feel to be fair. You've disregarded what we've said in favor of Team X, and not even all of Team X, just Klowny and shortkut in a way.

    You're withdrawing because the Internet is serious business and god forbid your hard work at guessing wedding expenses be for naught.

    If the game doesn't matter, then why did you bother spending so long gathering questions and setting the thing up if you were just going to f*ck it up in the end, anyway? For the lulz?

    Maybe Vash was right. Maybe you really are just an elaborate troll.

    I just said that the tables would've been turned had you had more strikes. Klowny would want me to give you a strike and you would demand I do a redo.

    Obviously any decision is going to favor one team over the other. I went with the obviously less retarded one for both.



    I only need confirmation from the Team Leaders. The opinions of the rest of both teams don't make a difference on what I do, only on what the two of you agree or don't agree to.



    Yes.

    Well it doesn't matter because we're not going to be answering anyway. You're a f*cking idiot Schteve. You don't know how to run a game worth a damn. Really though. Good luck to Team X, really. Maybe Schteve'll just go ahead and decide you win now and save everyone else the trouble. Considering this whole thing started because what a dipsh*t he is.


    Edit: Ah they quit too. Schteve knocks out an entire round. Top score, big Schtevey cool.

    I didn't realize a team was comprised of one person.

    Do you realize how ridiculous you sound right now? I'm guessing not.

    It isn't an either/or situation. If I can channel the spirit of The_Mess, that's a false dichotomy. You could have chosen a compromise, like giving us two strikes.

    It's amazing that your hands were tied because you didn't write a rule. You're claiming that you couldn't give us strikes because, hypothetically, we could have had strikes and then we would hypothetically be complaining that the hypothetical strike would have hypothetically cost us the game.

    Instead of just dealing with the situation we actually have at hand here, in which we were clearly winning the game, and then we realized you f*cked up the order and wanted to correct it. Or that we would have taken on a strike, whether we have none or had two.

    You can play with your hypothetical situation, and create some convoluted rationale that gives you an excuse for ruining the game, but in the end, you ruined your own game.

    No, if the roles were reversed and Team X had obviously won the round we would have gladly forfeited the round. You can say that is hypothetical and we're just saying that but if it were the same situation just reversed I can positively say what I'd do since I clearly lost.

    Read again. They said they have no problem letting you have the last round since you guys started complaining about it.



    Uh, ever since the signups I've only gone to Team Leaders when I need to get any information on behalf of a team. That's why they are called Team Leaders.




    Andy's absence warranted a strike regardless. Whether one is given or not doesn't fix the out of turn problem, which is what had to be addressed. One option was to ignore it as if nothing had happened and move forward, but that wasn't agreeable to Team X at the time. Hence, I won't do it.



    You having more strikes isn't a reversal of roles.



    Also, regular rules still apply to this forum.

    i missed a lot.

    if schteve was doing waht we wanted, he never would have let lettuce = spinach. he would have let me email my answer when i was away. there are a number of things he would have done if he wanted to benefit us since the game began. schteve has done a great job of being impartial and i know klown and i would have let the reset happen even if we were in your shoes and you would not be so hasty to fight it if andy was your third strike.

    since schteve is running this game, if he feels a new question would better set things, then that is what needs to be done. how hard is it to just come up with a few more answers and continue playing a game that was supposed to be fun? we all got a free round of playing that no one else got (assuming we get a new question) so stop all your belly-aching
