Explain the Game
After everyone has"logged in,"someone should press the"start game"button.Important!Only one person should press the"start game"button andonlyafter everyone has logged in.
Once the game starts, the computer will give you the beginning of a phrase.
It is up to you to complete the phrase. After you have done so, click the submit button.
A couple of hints:Do Notstart your phrase with a capital letter. Also try to use the same amount of timetypingfor every phrase, even if you have to backspace a lot.
This is so your fellow players can not tell if you are entering
a long or a short phrase. Finally, pay attention to spelling errors.
The text you enter will go through a spell checker,
and it is possble that the correct answer will have misspelled words,
but if your answer contains the wordtehinstead ofthechances are you won't receive many votes.
After everyone has completed the phrase, all of the phrases,
including the correct one, will be sent out to all of the players.
Thus if there are four players, they will each receive five phrases, in a random order.
(Not accounting for duplicates.) Now it is time to vote. Each player votes foroneand only one phrase. After everyone has voted,
the computer computes the score and sends it out to everyone.
It also sends the next question. Wash, rinse, repeat.
Explain Logging In
It is quite possible that more than one player will select the same user name.
We have displayed everything we know about the users that match your name above.
If none of them is you, click on the
\"None of the above\"
button and we will create another player with this user name.
Here is how scoring works:
- If the phrase you sent in matches the correct phrase, you get two points
- If you voted for the correct phrase, you get one point
- If someone else voted for your phrase, you get one point
- If you voted for your own phrase, you get zero points
Sometimes people accidentally close their browser window while playing.
This causes them to lose their connection to the game. If this happens, do not panic.
Tell your fellow players to wait for you, and go ahead and log in again with the exact
same user name. The game will move ahead to the next question,
but the score will be preserved and you can continue playing.
