So, I've had a bit of a phase of playing risk a lot lately, so I decided to try and get a game here up. I tried looking for tools like Backstabbr but with no luck. Does anyone know any tools I can use to make a risk game on a forum with this?
Hint will be given now. One week to answer. On Earth, this element is almost as abundant as copper and is quite inexpensive, especially in the form of it's oxide, widely used as an abrasive powder for polishing glass. it's metal form is a pyrophoric, meaning it can catch fire when you scratch, file...
Replaced. cyanyoshi, SDK, and mathmannix all got it correct. One point. Since more than half got this correct, there will not be another hint phase. The answer is Bromine. http://periodictable.com/Samples/035.2/s13.JPG Bromine Atomic Weight 79.904 Density 3.12 g/cm3 Melting Point -7.3 °C Boiling Po...
I just saw this (well, the locked one there) on Science, and it looks like I'm too late. :( But why limit it to four people? Can't I join in next round, with no penalty except I would start with 0 points, same as 3 of the four of y'all? Anyway, I want to play. If my guess doesn't count, it doesn't ...

GAME STARTS NOW. You all have exactly one guess. Exactly two stable elements are liquid at conventional room temperature, this element and another. With Other Halogens, this element spends its time almost exclusively in the form of ions, either in an ionic salt or, if it's lucky, lounging in a hot ...

You clicked on this, so I'll jump right in. The evolution of a forum has 4 steps: Evolution 1 This type of forum, classified as the Low-population Forum usually starts with a very small and enjoyable number of people, usually all mods. These are the friends and family of the owner, and at this stage...
Down in the Forum games section, I'm hosting a guess the element game! Here's the post and the accumulated rules: Today is a great day for science, for I have created the educational forum game that might actually be fun to the more sciencey type of people. Here is how the game works: 4 people will ...
though it's been a while since I took any chemistry courses. I do hope it is allowed to use translation sites. English is not my mother tongue and the Dutch names for some elements would not seem to be the right answers. Did you know we call Sodium "Natrium"? Would you have guessed I mean...
I'm assuming that this is by memory - i.e. no use of outside resources? Otherwise it just becomes a question of who can Google the fastest. If so, I'm in, though it's been a while since I took any chemistry courses. 1. Neil Boekend 2. Rosencrantz [tentative] 3. 4. Correct. You may not use outside s...
I would totally play a game (sit in on a spell) but it seems as if the mafia games just stopped happening. what's with that? I mean, even IF I'm a huge n00b, I still want to play this.(Noob being the only thing I really did to prepare for mafia is read the wikipedia article on it and some of the set...

Let it be. As it is, I've done nothing wrong(except maybe put an overused logic puzzle out in the puzzles section.) so there is no real reason to ban me, and I really don't see any connection between myself and zabing. I'll be sure to put that I am in danger of being banned under my profile from now...
Whatever. If you all want me to be zabing/duplicatefeline/XKCD, then so be it. poof! A dollop of fairy dust and now I don't care all that much! Go ahead and think I'm zabing/duplicatefeline, but my name is XKCD, so please call me that.

Three gods A , B , and C are called, in some order, True, False, and Random. True always speaks truly, False always speaks falsely, but whether Random speaks truly or falsely is a completely random matter. Your task is to determine the identities of A , B , and C by asking three yes-no questions; ea...

Yawning actually occurs to get more oxygen to your body and this signal is given by your brain. So when we think about it or see someone yawning, our brain starts believing that the body might be in need of some more oxygen. That theory follows closely with the theory I put up top, and three people...
