#### UberCAKE

##### Spazmatism

This is a forum game I got from the Kerbal Space Program forums.

Credit to RainDreamer (from the KSP forum) for inventing this.

The goal is to count to either 100 or -100

1. You must add or subtract 1 (+1 or -1) for each post.

2. You cannot perform any operation again until another person has successfully perform an operation to change the current number. (Technically you can just get 2 people on the same team spam posts real fast without breaking this rule. But that is exploiting the rule and being cheap.
I will record your win snidely, and that pair will get a medal of dishonour.)

3. You can switch sides between positive and negative at any time you want, simply adding/subtracting in your next post if you are negative/positive. However, you cannot retroactively change your previous posts to reflect your allegiance changes, and they remains valid.

4. You can express the addition or subtraction process in anyway you like. You can express the current number however you like. Be it in words, numbers, mathematical expressions, a story, whatever*. However, your expression in your post, must clearly, correctly, and explicitly state the operation you have done (adding or subtracting) and the current number.

+ "Clearly" here means it must be clear to

+ "Correctly" here means your expression must truthfully represent the operation you did to the number and what the current number is. You cannot misinform other people of the current number and the operation you did to the number.

4.1 You can use underscores (_) instead of minuses (-) for the (-) bit.

4.2 Stating the operation you have done can be skipped for winning posts only, that means only posts with the number 100 or -100

5. In cases where a message cannot be reasonably interpreted any other way from the context and information available, it cannot be considered to have multiple interpretations. The game will continue assuming the available obvious interpretation of the post despite what the original poster meant it to be.

Special case: If a user clearly and explicitly express intention to null their own post (before another user make a post), that post is nulled, as per obvious interpretation.

6. In the case of the current number being incorrect due to intentional or unintentional misinformation/misinterpretation, a player must notify others of the error, and will have to find the last correct number and quote that post (for easier accuracy checking) and the game continues as normal from the last correct number.

7. In the case of two or more posts from two or more different people being posted at the same time(give or take a minute) trying to subtract/add to the same number simultaneously , the post that appears

Special clause for rule 7: Rule 7 cannot be invoked if in doing so it violates rule 2. So one person cannot override another person's post if they are holding the currently contested number.

8. Post that are edited

9. Do NOT delete posts, EVER.

9.1 Do NOT edit the number in posts unless you were ninja'd.

Rules can be updated as needed to keep the game going. Previous wins will not be nulled to rule update. In case of dispute over rules and reverts, halt progression and wait for a GM to resolve it.

NOTE: While not a rule, if you get a winning post, please edit it to tag me, it will speed up the speed that I edit the OP.

Positives: 5

Negatives: 7

tappaja100 The first win for both the positives and this thread!

[Sc1ence01]OczyrdoR The first win for the negatives!

[Sc1ence01]OczyrdoR Won twice! In a row! *Applause*

tappaja100 The second win by him! Also the first win in about 650 posts

Mineblock04122, the first win by someone other than tappaja100 or [Sc1ence01]OczyrdoR!

UberCAKE (me!) That was the first time I have EVER won a number war!

UberCAKE (me!) 2 wins in a row! And the second time I have ever won a number war!

UberCAKE (me!), my 3rd win in a row, noice.

tappaja100! For the third time!

Vinnoe (Positive)

tappaja100's fourth win! (Negative)

However, your expression in your post, must clearly, correctly, and explicitly state the operation you have done (adding or subtracting) and the current number.

+ "Clearly" here means it must be clear to

*any*reader, without context, to understand reasonably what operation you are doing to the number and what the current number is. If a message can be interpreted in multiple ways and is not clarified by the poster, it is nulled to avoid confusion. There must only be

**one**interpretation possible.

+ "Correctly" here means your expression must truthfully represent the operation you did to the number and what the current number is. You cannot misinform other people of the current number and the operation you did to the number.

In the case of the current number being incorrect due to intentional or unintentional misinformation/misinterpretation, a player must notify others of the error, and will have to find the last correct number and quote that post (for easier accuracy checking) and the game continues as normal from the last correct number.

**The responsibility of finding errors falls on to players. If no one report the error following the procedure above, before the number reach 100 or -100, the win will still be awarded, the positive team if 100, negative team if -100 (unless declared invalid by a GM).**Common sense apply here though. If someone intentionally jack up a ton of numbers at once and reach a winning number in just a few posts, that is way too obvious and won't count as a win. This rules apply for more subtle errors.

7. In the case of two or more posts from two or more different people being posted at the same time(give or take a minute) trying to subtract/add to the same number simultaneously , the post that appears

*on the thread counts toward the change in the current number (this allow override over winning posts too). This is to avoid needless confusion and people can simply read the last post to continue the game. You also cannot spam posts in an attempt to override another person's change during the 1 minute window, only your earliest post will count in that situation. So don't spam.*

**last**Special clause for rule 7: Rule 7 cannot be invoked if in doing so it violates rule 2. So one person cannot override another person's post if they are holding the currently contested number.

8. Post that are edited

__the next post will be nulled. Post that are edited__

*before**the next post will be made non-revertable (not valid, simply that it can't be used as revert point or as a cause for revert, the last valid post will be the one before it).*

__after__9. Do NOT delete posts, EVER.

tappaja100's fifth win, negative.

*Starting from zero.*

*Player 1 post: "+ one". This is acceptable, because it both states the current number, and the operation the player did (plus one).*

*Player 2 post: "another one". This is nulled, because while it can be read as an addition of one unit to the current number, it does not state the current number correctly(or at all), because other players may mistaken the current number as "one" or 0.*

*Player 3 post: "+1 from 1" This is acceptable, because it tells the others what the last number was, and the operation the player did (plus one) and from there they can understand that the current number is 2. Again, rule 5 says that you can express the current number anyway you like, along with what you did to it. It just have to be correct.*

*Player 4 post: "3 (+)" This is also acceptable. Because it is implicitly suggesting an addition to the previous number (which everyone can see above) and it shows the current number mathematically correct. The game can continue.*

*Player 5 post: "The number of rockets I launched to space". This is not acceptable - no one knows how many the rocket this poster has launched to space yet aside from the poster and perhaps some friends. It does not clearly state the current number or the operation that has been done to it.*

*Player 6 post: "0 4" This is either "0 and 4", or "4". It is nulled. The poster should not have used the space in middle of the number to avoid misinterpretation.*

*Player 7 post: "The atomic number of Beryllium (+)" This is accepted. While it may be obscured for some, it is common knowledge and researchable (google it!). It is 4, btw.*

*Player 8 post: "5" This is no longer acceptable, as the rule now require players to also explicitly declare the operation they did to the number. Even though it can be deducted from previous post, the post deviate from the requirement and can be used as ground for reversal*

I will start, 1 (+)
