Twenty Questions - Character Edition - Game #2

As the proud guesser of Game #1 (albeit, I admit, after multiple guesses), I take up the challenge of choosing a character for you all to guess. The rules again are: 1. Only yes/no questions may be asked. 2. If the answer is unclear, questionmaster must clarify why. 3. Guesses do not count against t...

Re: 20Q - Twenty Questions - Character Edition

That was a teaser. I was not sure Henry Hill was a producer, director or actor, but I think he did have some involvement in the making of Goodfellas and may have gotten a producer's credit. That is what led me to my alternate guess which was Joe Pistone / Donnie Brasco. But I don't think he killed a...

Re: 20Q - Twenty Questions - Character Edition

I'm going to go with Henry Hill, the Mafia mobster played by Ray Liotta in Goodfellas.
Scratch that. Joe Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco.

Re: 20Q - Twenty Questions - Character Edition

I'll ask one more question as its either an obvious question, or so obviously dumb that people will pillory me for it.

Is the person they killed themself? Suicide is illegal in some places.

Re: 20Q - Twenty Questions - Character Edition

Guess: Charles Manson

Question: To define the "killer" part, was this person actually convicted of murder?

Accusation of Cheating

Are there rules about using press to falsely accuse a player of cheating? One player did in my game, and I'm steaming about it. The obvious intent is to use the allegation of cheating to build up an alliance against the alleged cheaters. If it was a bone fide allegation, they would have taken the ac...

I do much prefer SOS scoring, but there are few games created that way, it seems.

It is genital mutilation,
Only in the same sense that earrings are earlobe mutilation.

Re: Playing for a Draw

I agree. Playing for a Draw is a loser move. It appears to be a function of WebDip's point system, which rewards Draws. A Solo is at least 10 times as hard to do as a 3-way Draw, but only earns twice the points.

Rulebook Press

Can anyone explain to me why Rulebook Press isn't the default system here on WebDip (and perhaps other online hosts too)? I mean, maybe it wouldn't make games that much shorter (although it would make them somewhat shorter). I just wonder why the online game decided to go a different way from the in...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

I really enjoyed that, and winning the silver was more than I expected. Proud to have gotten into the draws in all my games, against top notch opposition. Great team experience with Hamilton Brian, Yonni and Peregrine Falcon. We will be spending the next two years practising 1v1's. Congratulations t...
