@TheGreatEscaper Yes, but we have to wait for Rubio to give up first.

Rubio (or whoever the defender is) can guess what your clue refers to, but if he/she gives us, anybody else can go

@TheGreatEscaper Bin
(and then you can +1 or -1 or your personal equivalent to indicate if I'm right with my guess at your clue)

Was @the "bin" right?

11:05 PM
Yup
Wait does bad stuff happen if the defender gets it
Or does just nothing happen

Nothing happens

The only "bad stuff" is if the defender doesn't get it and someone else does.

The only things that change game state is: Someone(s) say "contact", I give up on the clue, and the contacter(s) get it right

Bad for the defender, that is: they have to give away another letter.

Or, if someone's guess resolves to my word, at which point they win.

11:07 PM
Oh btw, my first one was invalidated. Any ideas, or shall I give it away?

Are you dissing it or hitting it?

Hang on, do all our clues need to start with BI now

yes

@TheGreatEscaper Yes.

Mine still works, I'm just trying to clarify
Ok cool

Which is what I mean by saying my first one was invalidated: it begins with B but not BI.

11:09 PM
@rand I'm just going to blindly guess BITCH(ING) with no defense for it

@Rubio Nope.

ok then. :)
Your earlier one I got nothin'

It doesn't start with BI, remember :-)

No, I meant your current one

Oh, sorry.
Well, that's not BITCH(ING) either.
I'll tell you the earlier one: it's BASHING.

11:11 PM
Wow. Nice.

@Rand CONTACT

That needs to find its way into a cryptic. :)

:-D

partial

Has ⁻¹

11:12 PM
@Vol Contact (maybe?)

@Vol CONTACT

@bobo, you're back!

Woohoo

Hi!

Lo!
Any ideas, @Rubio, or should the contacting commence?

11:14 PM
@Volatility Bit

ok passing on @rand's

Oh, mine's a duplicate

@Rubio Go for it, @The.

#2 2 loops

11:16 PM
@boboquack there's nothing saying you can't clue a word that's already been clued

Alright.

Yeah - there's two goals in the game - 1 is to post clues you think your fellow players can get that I can't, to get more letters; and 2 is to actually guess my word

Both stand then

duplicate words as guesses don't give any headway toward objective 2, but can toward 1
anyway - @bobo #1 bin, or bijection. :)

11:19 PM
@Rubio Aww, that's cheating :-P

:)
Turnabout's fair play hehe

Also, @bob, an injection has an inverse too, at least on its image.

@Randal'Thor Then it's not a true inversion on the codomain

In the interest of fair play, I honestly am way past the point where bijection, surjection, injection, inversion, or any of that ilk have any meaning to me anymore

@boboquack Only if you take that set to be part of the definition of the function. All you really need for a function is a domain and a definition of the map.

11:22 PM
Anyway... @The, you said you had rand's ...

@Rubio You'll hate this riddle then :-)

Oh dear God.
I recognized some of the words in the answer.
mainly the ones under 6 letters long hehe

That was my first glimpse of the brilliance of McMagister.
Coming along to provide perfect solutions to riddles that had been unsolved for weeks became something of an MO of his.

Math and I parted company, mostly amicably, after my first class with matrices.
ok TGE is AWOL so
I'll formally pass on Volatility's, someone contact it

Matrices can be ugly.
But so much else in maths is beautiful!
@Rubio My guess was "bisected". @Vol?

11:26 PM
-1

Darn.
What then?

biased

oh. see, I should have known that.
now I'm mad at me :)

Ohhhh, that kind of partial!

heh, well at least nobody else knew that either ;)

11:28 PM
@boboquack: bicycle
should have had that ages ago, if that's it
and nice clue too

when left and right co-operate

errmmmm bicameral?
bipartisan

+1 bipartisan

Heh, I was thinking of ambidextrous.

is bicameral a reasonable answer for the Brits? i don't know. it sounded right

11:32 PM
I'd never heard that word.

neither

oh. nvm then
I thought it was a parliament thing.

nice play on spelling hehe
(Yes, I know that's how that is spelled)

heh?

@Rubio -2

well. poo.

(I have a vaguely unsettling image now of someone sneezing into a Kleenex and then studying it closely)

11:41 PM
:D

oh duh
@rand Bishop
and nice one
I had the right words, wrong context.

ah, nice

+1
Choose your ways

Bisect, maybe

11:50 PM
@Rubio +1

@rand with the parentheses, remember what lisp is)))))))

@boboquack You mean from earlier?

Yes

Or are you talking about one of our BI words?

11:52 PM
Bifurcate?

The other two still are valid?
Tissue is Biopsy

Oh duh. I though Vol's "+1" was a joke response to your "well poo".

heh

@Rubio That was my thought too.

11:55 PM
That's the word that was on the tip of my t...yping fingers when I tried bisect first.
Finally dredged it up

@Randal'Thor Choose your ways

@bobo not bifurcate?

No
-1

Bidirectional
