Question

(I've tried "search" and I've looked over the various forums, and I can't find examples of this. I'm sorry if I've duplicated a post.)

I like BUTTER but I don't like GOATS

-----------------------------

For people who haven't played this game, here's how it works in general:

First, the OP makes a statement of the form "I like xxxx but I don't like yyyy".

Then, players ask questions.

You can ask, "Do you like zzz?"

--the OP will answer "Yes, I like zzz" or "No, I don't like zzz"

--if the OP wants to show off his/her erudition and/or quick thinking, he/she will answer as much as possible with something like "Yes, I like zzz, but I don't like www" or "No, I don't like zzz, but I DO like www"

If a player wants to show off how well they understand the OP's rule, their query might take the form,

"I bet you like qqq" or

"I bet you don't like qqq"

The OP will answer as before.

If a player wants to guess THE RULE, he/she should put it in a spoiler. If it's wrong, the OP will expose the guess, along with a counterexample. If it's right, the OP will congratulate the player, and announce that the rule is now known. (Might leave the game in play, I suppose. How do you folks do this in MasterWord?

I see that in Masterword, the OP's responses contain all past queries and answers. That seems very humane. That should probably be done here, too.

I think so. I ain't sure I can handle it myself, but perhaps I can figure it out. :ph34r:

Do you like LINKINLOGS?

If so maybe the rule is

you like words that contian at least two sets of double letters whether the letters or sets of letters are consecutive or not. such as ex: "caabbd" contains two sets of double letters consectively where as "babded","abbded","dbabde" contian two sets of double letters where the doubled letters are not consecutive.

I'm loving your witty examples!

You like any word that doesn't end in a vowel.

Thank you Captain Ed.

And you are correct, I don't like any word that ends in a vowel. It was very difficult to think of words that ended in vowels for my examples but that is what made it fun. Feel free to take the next one unless you would like to let someone else try

I agree, it is fun trying to make examples relevant to the queries! And then they're fun for us readers! Thanks for a fun puzzle.

I'm not in a good position right now. Somebody else please dive in and start a new one.
