COMMENTS:

nice intuitive word. Minor objection to it not being a verb but a good idea. - Wiserhinoceros, 2007-07-17: 11:50:00

Hmm where in the rules does it say it has to be a verb? I guess that is somewhat implied from the name of the game, but I didn't realize that was a hard and fast rule. - jesster, 2007-07-17: 13:15:00

I would think the definition implies verb-like action in this case, but a well-placed object works for me too. - Kyoti, 2007-07-17: 15:24:00

would you like to rephrase that Kyoti? - galwaywegian, 2007-07-18: 03:57:00
