Title: Moobles
Post by: The Viper on December 17, 2011, 08:12:00 PM
Here's a game to get you thinking.

Moobles are mystical creatures. They have odd likes and dislikes. You need to figure the pattern for why they like certain things but dislike others. The first person to get the pattern and get 5 likes and dislikes right wins. If you get it wrong, you lose a point. Once you know the pattern, don;t tell others what it is. You can't guess twice in a row. Now to start the round... take a guess and I'll tell you if it's right or wrong.

Moobles like carrots, but dislike tomatoes.

Title: Re: Moobles
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on December 20, 2011, 09:39:00 PM
Well, the patterns have nothing to do with what the words mean.  The last couple had to do with spelling; others might have to do with how the words are pronounced, but it has nothing to do with meaning.  So if you set a pattern, it's gotta be something that has nothing to do with what the words mean, but how they're written or pronounced, that determines which are "good" and which are "bad." And then other people have to guess, and the first to get five pairs of likes and dislikes right first gets to guess the pattern for the win.

Hope that helps. ;)

The pattern was "Moobles like things that end with vowels, but dislike things that end with consonants."

I was iffy about "mystery" because it ended in a Y. However, some people consider Y a vowel, so I accepted it.
Title: Re: Moobles
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on December 24, 2011, 01:59:26 PM
Yeah, the main reason I made a guess with "mystery" was because I figured the Y acted like a vowel there. :P Anywho, my go:

...Yeah, I meant for that to be a harder one, but maybe not by that much.  I did want a pattern that involved checking the dislikes for a change, but the pattern was that each dislike had to have three or more of the same letter in the word.  I suggested trying longer words to spot the pattern since it didn't really show up with most of the shorter early examples. :P

This might sound dumb, but I don't understand what rjaguar3 is saying.

My apologies.  I was checking that, for any word X, the moobles like X or dislike X.  That is, the rule is not of the form:
Quote
Moobles like words with exactly 1 'Q' and dislike words with 2 or more 'Q's
which would make it that words with no 'Q's are neither liked nor disliked by the moobles and thus can never be part of a valid guess.

I hope this makes sense.

THK got it, and he wins this round.

And in hindsight, yes, I admit this may have been a little too hard...the pattern, as most of you have figured out, was that Moobles like words which don't have the letter 'S' in their plural form. I actually had to look up words like "Jeep" and "onomatopoeia" to make certain about their plural forms...

Anyhow, it's THK's turn now.

I was surprised to see onomatopoeia not being counted. I probably should've known.
I had to look it up, and "onomatopoeia" has two accepted plural forms: "onomatopoeias" and "onomatopoeiae".  I would have accepted the latter, which is why I said you were close.
