Do you know that a lot of people misread stuff?
Why did you answer with two questions?

Can I one-up you guys with 3 questions?
Is everyone imperfect or is nobody perfect?
Why did I ask that first question when I plainly proved that I can?

Didn't you just answer with, 'Do you really want me to answer?'?

Foul, no rhetoric.

Is that a question?

Citing the rules of the game are excluded from the requirement of being questions themselves.


Scoring is done by foul. Fouls can be called for:
  • statement: player fails to reply with a question
  • hesitation: player takes too long to reply or grunts or makes a false start
  • repetition: player asks questions identical to or synonymous with one already asked this game (not match)
  • rhetoric: player asks a rhetorical question
  • non sequitur: player responds with an unrelated question
When a foul is called on a player, his opponent is awarded one point. First player to get three points wins a game. Matches are played to best out of three games.
In one multiplayer variant, the game is played with two lines facing each other. The two opponents at the heads of the lines play each other and go to the back of the line (or the otherline) when they foul. Scoring can be however the players like.

Do you know how beautiful your posts are?
Are they even half as aesthetically pleasing as your own?

Isn't that subjective?
