I've only recently taken up rwawgacoping. (If you need a pronunciation key, err-waw-GA (as in gamma)-kuh-ping.) I suspect that very few people are able to do it. However, it's great fun, and I would recommend it to anybody with the materials.

What does it mean to rwawgacop?

The materials = smaller than a quarter? smaller than a deck of cards? smaller than a toaster? smaller than a microwave? Smaller than a car? Bigger?

The materials = a set of similar things? A set of related things? A substance? Solid? liquid? gas?

CLARIFICATION: "A set of related things" = i.e. they're related in some way, but some of them are obtained independently of the others; the question is a bit vague.

Is the reason that "few people are able to do it" because they don't have the materials?
Could they do it simply by obtaining the materials?
Can these materials be borrowed from another person?
Any special talent needed? Would other physical or emotional aptitudes be required?

Is the reason that "few people are able to do it" because they don't have the materials? mostly
Could they do it simply by obtaining the materials? a bit of knowledge is required, but sometimes not much—it depends
Can these materials be borrowed from another person?
there are four items needed: two can be borrowed, the third depends and sometimes comes with the second, and the fourth could be borrowed, but that would usually be futile Any special talent needed? again, it depends Would other physical or emotional aptitudes be required? no

Is internet access required? Does rwawgacoping make a relevant sound? Does it require: hands? Sight? Hearing? Legs? A sense of touch? Is it fun? Challenging? Relaxing? Exciting? Dangerous? Does it produce a tangible result? Can one get better at rwawgacoping? Is it done alone? In cooperation with others? In competition with others? In front of others? Are any of the parts: changed? Improved? Destroyed? Depleted? Are they all physical objects? Are the physical objects all manmade? Could one rwawgacoping in the: 60s? 70s? 80s? 90s? Is specific computer software relevant? A specific program? A specific kind of software?

Item #2: a desktop computer? no, but ... Laptop? no, but ... Some other device that can work like a computer? this could be taken many ways, but according to following questions, I'll say no Like a Blackberry? Or PDA?

Is internet access required? no Does rwawgacoping make a relevant sound? no Does it require: hands? technically no, but usually Sight? again, usually Hearing? either this or sight Legs? no A sense of touch? technically no, but usually Is it fun? yes Challenging? possibly Relaxing? possibly Exciting? possibly Dangerous? no Does it produce a tangible result? not really Can one get better at rwawgacoping? yes Is it done alone? In cooperation with others? In competition with others? any of these, the latter two being harder, and I've only done it alone In front of others? yes Are any of the parts: changed? this is very general, but no, not considerably Improved? you could view it as improving item #5 Destroyed? no Depleted? parts of #2 and possibly #1 are depleted Are they all physical objects? only #1 and #2, and possibly #3 and #5 include physical objects Are the physical objects all manmade? yes Could one rwawgacoping rwawgacop in the: 60s? 70s? 80s? 90s? no to all Is specific computer software relevant? yes A specific program? yope A specific kind of software? yes, and to clarify, #4 and #5 are types of software, #5 being more general than #4

In fact, let me RECAP what each item is:

#1: A physical, man-made object, some part of which may be depleted during the process, yopishly a computer part
#2: Another man-made object, which is a computer part or isn't, depending on how you define "computer," which is also depleted somehow
#3: something intangible that may have a tangible part, and is computer-related
#4: a specific type of computer software
#5: a more general type of computer software, which may have a physical part

Is #5 a specific computer game? Or just any computer game? The "SOLVED" didn't make it obvious enough? From now on, that means it's done, and you can move on.

#1/#2 - a gaming console? A specific one? #1 is yesishly a game console, #2 is yopishly a game console, for a different reason.

One sec...#5: a computer game as in "one that comes on CDs"? Or "one that you can find online/download"? either; this is why it can have a physical part but need not

Is #2 a calculator? The CPU itself? Something that's generally contained within the computer chassis (i.e. a part, but none of the peripherals like monitor, keyboard, mouse)? One of the peripherals?

Is #4 one of the pre-loaded programs that generally comes with a store-bought computer system (for example, Minesweeper, the calculator, and Windows Media Player on PCs)? Is it a program that a large amount of the population would load on the computer if it's not already preloaded (for example, the Microsoft Office suite)? Is it something a relatively small percentage (or a specific subset) of the population would have on their computer? some kind of specialized software? Or is it simply some specific "type" of software? like word processing software? or graphic design?

#3 - something intangible that may have a tangible part, and is computer-related, not memory
#4 - a specialized type of computer software, which not many people would have

A controller for a certain console? A paddle? Wiimote? THIS.

#1 - a computer - SOLVED
#2 - a Wii Remote - SOLVED
#3 - something intangible that may have a tangible part, and is computer-related, not memory
#4 - a specialized type of computer software, which not many people would have
#5 - a computer game - SOLVED

Using a Wii-mote instead of a mouse? Using a Wii-mote for computer games? Playing the game on the Wii but transfering the visual (screen) to the computer screen? Or vice versa - connecting the computer game to the Wii or TV and playing it with a Wii-mote?

Some sort of router-type-thing? not really; if you want to Google the process of connecting the remote, go ahead.

**********SPOILER**********

To rwawgacop is to Play COmputer GAmes With A Wii Remote (read the words in reverse order).

The items required are:
#1 - a computer
#2 - a Wii Remote
#3 - Bluetooth support
#4 - a program that uses the Wii Remote input to emulate keystrokes (and/or possibly the mouse)
#5 - a computer game

Thanks to all for playing, especially Balin!
