The quarterback throws something. An object mysteriously lands in your hands.

G for "You are being crushed!"

#2 Sorceror Sat, 2 Jan 2010 10:57:08
"what appears to be" is unnecessary. Hack doesn't give messages like that.

#3 BreathOfSorrows Sat, 2 Jan 2010 18:18:50
I must have used an Angband message in the first panel. My bad

#4 ctaboir Sat, 2 Jan 2010 21:00:44
@sorceror: "You notice what appears to be a large, squat stone structure nearby."
Extract from plain vanilla wizard quest...

#5 ctaboir Sat, 2 Jan 2010 21:08:10
And by the way, not football, American football. The one you can play with hands. Hands, like in "foot".

#6 Sorceror Sat, 2 Jan 2010 23:36:15
Well *EXCUSE ME* for being crap at Hack!

#7 Anonymous Sun, 3 Jan 2010 15:03:12
Six people, vote E to complete the Fibonacci sequence.

#8 Quint Sun, 3 Jan 2010 20:44:56
Five more.

#9 Sorceror Mon, 4 Jan 2010 01:34:14
Won't be complete. Needs to start 1, 1, 2.

#10 Anonymous Mon, 4 Jan 2010 15:52:49
"Football" being a sport played on foot (by commoners), to distinguish it from a sport played on horseback (by nobles).

#11 ctaboir Mon, 4 Jan 2010 18:29:57
While "handball" being a sport played on hand (by footless)? Nevertheless, Rugby is the only sport!

Soccer/International Football is the only game deserving of being called "football". Only the goalie is allowed to touch the ball with his hands.

#13 TobyBartels Tue, 5 Jan 2010 06:57:40
@ Sorceror

Still won't be complete. Sequence is infinite (in both directions, potentially).

But 1,2,3,8,13 would have been an extract from it.

Soccer is properly called ‘Association Football’, if you want to be like that. (FIFA = Féderation Internationale de Football Association; asSOCiation -> SOCcer.)

#14 BreathOfSorrows Tue, 5 Jan 2010 07:35:19
The American sport needs a new, and more logical, name. How 'bout "tackleball"? heh

#15 NobodySpecial Tue, 5 Jan 2010 13:03:11
Only the goalie and Diego Maradona are allowed to touch the ball with their hands.

Fixed.

@TobyBartels

You missed a 5 in there. And, of course, the ratings are no longer anywhere near Fib-shaped, so this entire discussion is...well, it's as silly as it was when it started, at least.

#17 TobyBartels Tue, 5 Jan 2010 22:46:34
@ Thvor

Heh, yeah.

2,3,5,8,13 is still possible.

#18 ais523 Wed, 6 Jan 2010 13:04:42
"You hear the quarterback calling the play" is actually an ingame message, I think. (Probably while hallucinating.)

#19 jokeserver Wed, 6 Jan 2010 21:32:48
@ais523: Yes, it is. I love the hallucination messages, they're great.

#20 Sorceror Fri, 19 Feb 2010 13:58:01
I don't see this one getting 6 more E votes any time soon.

#21 BreathOfSorrows Tue, 23 Feb 2010 11:38:00
Neither do I
