    It is Calvinball, just make a new rule that allows you to do what you did.

    Tim, the Enchanter is catching up on being Dungeon Master. Couple of things to keep in mind.


    First.... people are being fantastic. Tim the Enchanter has lost all control of this game - which is exactly what should have happened.


    Effective ordinances are IF - THEN statements. In other words, IF there is (non) compliance, THEN what is the reward (punishment).

    For example, a new Calvinball with four likes gets 10 points.

    Example, "hints must be in Haiku." Okay..... what if they are (aren't)??


    Second, only one new ordinance per find. And yes, a subsequent draft ordinance can undo an existing ordinance. The ordinance with the most net likes wins.


    Third, I used to geocache. Geocaching is a game of hiding cheap tupperware in parks and finding it with million dollar GPS satellites.

    (1) NPS hates tupperware. Really. Its best to stay clear of NPS land. If you make a hide on NPS land, be supper respectful

    (2) The number of times the bomb squad has been called because tupperware has been hidden.... in a parking lot, in a play ground, under a bridge..... you would not believe. In this era of neurosis, please make sure no one will think your container is a bomb

    Scoring

    Josh
    Josh's bourbon sat un-noticed by school children for a couple of days so he gets 3 points for the hide.
    His Haiku ordinance got 6 likes so he gets 5 points for that.
    His bourbon based new Calvinball got only 3 likes - so bupkus for that.
    Tim the Enchanter however likes Bourbon so Ptthhhhh - 5 points!
    Josh is awarded 13 points.

    SteveO
    SteveO's multijurisdictional rule did not net 3 likes.
    SteveO's humongous um ball got 4 likes and therefore 10 points
    It took pilgrims less than a day to find his humongous um ball and therefore he gets all 5 points.
    Tim the Enchanter likes SteveO's creativity. 2 extra points.
    SteveO is awarded 12 points.

    CBGB's points will be divined upon the next fined.

    I am Tim. I am Arbitrary.

    My unholy scorecard.

    Calvin ball was no longer under the bridge at about 5:30.

    Geocachers have used some dumb containers. I mean really dumb. Just be mindful of security theater.
