And here's my tip of the cap to the recent rimes that have been found in the LTPF:

This one can go quick or slow;
It depends on you, you know.





Title: The Game (Rulebreaker)

Difficulty: Easy to Moderate

Type: Rulebreaker

Story:
Let's play a game! We shall play as long as you keep the rules. But if you break the rules of the game three times, then you are out! It's the three strikes rule, you know...

To Solve:
Crack the rules of the game. If any individual breaks the rules three times, then he or she is prohibited from asking anymore questions or making any more statements for the next two days. If too many people are being "eliminated" in this fashion, however, I'll probably reconsider it.

Please place your guesses in italics. Answers from me that are outside the rules will also be in bold italics


Specialized Knowledge needed:
None needed

Good luck!

Go eat a bug?

The rules, eh? Yes, sir, the rules!
And what rules are those? Now, now...I can't just tell it to you, right? :)
Go eat a bug? Um...no
Twenty-eight? Strike one!

If we have three strikes, can we take a guess at the rule still?

I don't want to be the one the battles always choose.
'cause inside I realize that I'm the one confused.

Ian

liberty? Strike One!
freedom? Strike Two!
is tyranny dead? STRRRRRIIIIKE THREEEEE!!!!
freedom for me? This would have been a strike too
freedom for Fred and me? As would this one
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee? But this is fine

If we have three strikes, can we take a guess at the rule still? Sure. :) But remember, no questions for two days!

I guess I'll also add a new restriction from now on: only three statements and/or questions in one posting, please. Thanks.

Sciguy47

I'll treat the below as two separate statements.

I don't want to be the one the battles always choose. Strike one!
'cause inside I realize that I'm the one confused. Strike two!

Paradox

Does the brown fox jump over the lazy? Strike two!
twenty? STRIIIKE THREEEE!!!!! You are out too!

Does the quick brown fox jump the dog? I don't know...does it? But it's not that smart of a thing for the fox to do, if you ask me.
