    This is a game where a random player posts either a picture, a description or a quote of anything from Civilization V & its components. Every correct answer will be rewarded with 1 point. Every time a player wins a round, his/her point will be added onto the scoreboard.

    Note: Anyone inactive for a year or more will be removed from the scoreboard. This will save me time updating the scores. Your stats will remain saved in a document. Also, moderators are in bolded red.​

    Rules​

    1. No off-topic or spam
    2. No insults, flame wars, etc
    3. Don't post more than 6 images
    4. Clues can be either pictures, descriptions, or quotes
    5. Don't make your image obvious
    6. Don't rename your picture "Silk.jpg" because some players will just press the "Quote" key & see the code
    7. Don't make your picture too big. If it's bigger than 1024*600, put it in a spoiler using
      Spoiler :
      [ /spoiler]
      [*]Don't download pictures from the internet because some players could track their origin via Google
      [*]Once you guessed, you must wait at least 12 hours before posting another guess unless there's a new clue
      [*]If someone answers correctly but doesn't post a new clue within 24 hours, myself or someone else may take over
      [*]After 5 incorrect guesses, give another clue
      [*]After 10 incorrect guesses, give out the answer or a third clue
      [*]A third clue can be given out anytime after the second clue and so on
      [*]You can post as many clues as you want, but don't keep the guessers waiting
      [*]You can guess again after a new clue has been given out
      [*]Not required but you can bold your clues so it's easier to spot
      [*]Don't edit images unless if you're covering something that will be a give-away
      [*]You must post anything related to your clue from Civilization V & its components (no mods)
      [*]Look before posting a new clue. There may be a clue going on. If so, don't interrupt that clue. You may go if you get the answer correct or within 36 hours after someone got it correct but doesn't give out a clue
      [*]After 36 hours with no confirmation whether the guesses are right or not, and the clue giver is online, anyone may go
      [*]A repeated guess does not count. Who ever repeats a guess can go again
      [*]Do not post a new clue if you think you've answered the prior clue correctly, you MUST wait for confirmation before continuing
      [*]If you've guessed too many clues correctly (4-5 in a row), you cannot guess again until after the next clue has been solved. Let others guess it too
      [*]You can change your clue within the first hour of posting.
      [*]If multiple people guess at the same time, the first to post gets the clue and the second gets a cookie
      [*]This is game is intended to be fun. So do not rage quit or anything like that. There's no reward out of this

    This seems fun! :D
    I'm guessing... Circus? :mischief:

    EDIT: Also, can clues be, say, pieces of music? That seems it could be fun as well! :)

    Yes. Anything from Civilization V. And no. Both of you are wrong

    Hydroplant

    Also a question about the rules: Do we get to guess again if a new item is now being guessed? Or is it a strict 24 hour policy no matter what's being guessed?

    Yes.

    Correct. You get one point. Now ask a clue

    I'd say Forge is the only correct answer:
    Circus: Horse OR Elephants
    Stoneworks: Stone OR Marble
    Forge: Iron (only)
    Stables: Horses, Cattle or Sheep

    This place was once the residence of the sitting ruler.

    Well, I guessed hydroplant which requires (only) aluminum...

    Besides, the original clue is still fine under the original cluegiver's interpretation. In logic, we refer to these kinds of statements as ambiguous statements and are usually made clear with the addition of extra clauses. Still, speaking colloquially doesn't usually require such stringent rules.

    Also, (at the OP) can we make a rule that clues have to be written in all bold and all italics or something just to distinguish them from non-clue posts. If this thread gets pretty big (which I see it easily doing) it would make them easier to find for people popping in to take a guess.
