    Blind Quartets

    We're going to play a game of Quartets (or "Go Fish", as some people call it). At the start of the game, I'll deal out cards to each player, including myself, and then we'll start with the first player. That player can ask a single other player for a card, provided they have a card in the same "set". If they do, they give it to the turn player, and the turn player gets to go again. If they don't, it's now that player's turn. Once you get four of a kind, you lay them down and get a point. Player with the most points wins the game.

    Now, here's the catch. Your hand is imaginary and indeterminate. At the start of the game, I'll "imaginary" deal out a bunch of cards, and then, through playing the game, we will define what cards we have. This makes a lot more sense through example.

    Example:
    Let's say there are four players.

    P1 asks P2 for "Red" from the category "Colors".
    P2 says he doesn't have "Red".

    It is now P2's turn. P2 asks P3 for "Red" from the category "Colors".
    P3 says she doesn't have "Blue".

    Now P3 asks P4 for "Red" from "Colors". Since P1, P2, and P3 all don't have "Red", P4 must have it by process of elimination, so P4 must say yes.

    This game was copied directly from the old GMC, where Lawsome hosted it. You can see the game in action to get a feel for how it's supposed to work here. I strongly recommend taking a look, as Lawsome was better at explaining the game than I am.

    Does ANY bold text work? Let's try this!

    Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me
    I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
    She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
    In the shape of an "L" on her forehead

    Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
    Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
    Didn't make sense not to live for fun
    Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
    So much to do, so much to see
    So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
    You'll never know if you don't go
    You'll never shine if you don't glow

    Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
    Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid
    And all that glitters is gold
    Only shooting stars break the mold

    It's a cool place and they say it gets colder
    You're bundled up now, wait till you get older
    But the meteor men beg to differ
    Judging by the hole in the satellite picture
    The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
    The water's getting warm so you might as well swim
    My world's on fire, how about yours?
    That's the way I like it and I never get bored

    Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
    Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid
    All that glitters is gold
    Only shooting stars break the mold

    Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
    Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show, on get paid
    And all that glitters is gold
    Only shooting stars

    Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas?
    I need to get myself away from this place
    I said yep what a concept
    I could use a little fuel myself
    And we could all use a little change

    Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming
    Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
    Didn't make sense not to live for fun
    Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
    So much to do, so much to see
    So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
    You'll never know if you don't go (go!)
    You'll never shine if you don't glow

    Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
    Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid
    And all that glitters is gold
    Only shooting stars break the mold

    And all that glitters is gold
    Only shooting stars break the mold

    Alright, that's five players.
    * Misu
    * Shawn
    * Roy
    * Yokcos
    * Mercerenies

    I have now "dealt" out 40 cards. Each player begins with 8 cards, and there are 10 quartets in the game. @Misu, since you joined first, you may take the first turn.
