As always, new players may jump in at any time. Find the rules here:

And find the events of last turn here:

However, based on the number of good guesses last round, it appears that several students are testing viable theories, and the game may not last much longer.

Remember, students are playing for high stakes here -- the winner gets the coveted "goo" icon: goo . Observe also that former Master Stefan has displayed great wisdom in using the goo to devise a psychadelic balm for treatment of withdrawal symptoms, so the winner will get that benefit as well. Oh, and you get to host the next round.

The right answer to sbabcock's Mondo list from last round is NO -- it does NOT have the Geek Nature. Winners of the Golden Camels are:

Correct:
rynelf goldencamel
scurre goldencamel
jwilhm goldencamel
ScottBecker goldencamel
JoeSteadman goldencamel
seppo21 goldencamel
Tom Vasel goldencamel

Incorrect:
latindog soblue
s2alexan soblue
chicagometh soblue
KentuckyKid sobluesoblue <-- bonus frownie for consistency
Orphius soblue
sbabcock soblue

The site is loading slowly at the moment, so if you don't see your camel right away, don't panic. It's probably just the goo paste clouding your vision.

There were NO new Mondo lists posted last round. There were, however, several master lists with the Geek Nature, including 4 that feature new games. Also, the students have reduced the Master's original list to its component parts and discovered that each part does indeed retain the essence.

One industrious student (Tom V.) has even put forth a list with 15(!) games on it. The list does NOT have the proper nature, however, thus proving that the Master's subtle Rule cannot be cracked by brute force.

Here is the current knowledge of the Master's Rule:

These lists HAVE the Geek Nature

*Round One*
Cosmic Encounter, Magic Realm, Magic: the Gathering (given)
Cosmic Encounter, Magic Realm, Wyvern (s2alexan)
Magic: the Gathering, Cosmic Encounter, Magic Realm (sdownin)
Cosmic Encounter, Magic Realm (jwilhm)

*Round Two*
Magic: the Gathering (Scurra)
Magic Realm (sdownin)
Cosmic Encounter (KentuckyKid)
Cosmic Encounter, Wyvern (chicagometh)
Cosmic Encounter, Showmanager, Magic Realm (ScottBecker)
Acquire, Axis and Allies: Europe (seppo21)
Magic Realm, Wyvern, Fist of Dragonstones (rynelf)
Advanced Squad Leader, Magic: the Gathering (JoeSteadman)

These lists DO NOT HAVE the Geek Nature

*Round One*
-- Melee, Wizard, Car Wars, Munchkin (given)
-- Ideology, Bang!, Road to the White House (ynnen)
-- Melee, Wizard, Magic Realm, Magic: the Gathering (Matt Kimball)
-- Citadels, Talisman, Cosmic Encounter (Scurra)
-- Cosmic Wimpout, Aladdin the Magic Carpet Game, Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot (KentuckyKid)
-- Elric, Magic Realm, Frog Juice (rynelf)
-- Modern Art, Magic Realm, Lie Cheat & Steal (Orphius)
-- Settlers of Catan, Die Macher, Age of Steam, Hammer of the Scots (chicagometh)
-- Liar's Dice, Apples to Apples, Civil War 2061, die Magier von Pangea, Way Out West (TomVasel)
-- Go, Modern Art, Ticket to Ride, Hannibal (latindog)
-- Candyland, Wyvern, Samurai [by Knizia] (seppo21)
-- Dweebs Geeks and Wierdos, Battle of the Sexes, Alligator Pool Party, 7 ages (JoeSteadman)
-- Melee, Cosmic Encounter, Magic Realm (sbabcock: Mondo)

*Round 2*
-- Robo Rally, Magic Realm, Guillitone (jwilhm)
-- Axis & Allies, Battle Cry (s2alexan)
-- Magic Realm, Bang! (Orphius)
-- Magic Realm, Magic the Gathering, Disney Magic Kingdom Game, The Magic Box, Magic Hill, Killer Bunny and Quest for the Magic Carrot, Magic Wood, Quest of the Magic Ring, Ronda Magica, Castle of Magic, Aladdin and the Magic Carpet Game, Knights and Magick, Magical Arena, Murphy's Magic Mansion, Rubik's Magic (Tom Vasel)


Post your new master or mondo lists below. And, if you have a Golden Camel, you may now attempt to guess the Rule! (One guess per camel, of course.)

That's Tim Powers' fictional Samuel Coleridge "quoting" John Milton in _The Anubis Gates_.
