Brainmaster

Pro

Definitions: The game- A mind game where thinking about the game constitutes a loss. Thus my opponent has just lost the game.

I await con's response.
Illegalcombatant

Con

I thank Pro for instigating this debate.

Pros definition and argument is unintelligible to me, therefore this "game" that Pro speaks of, may make some sort of sense in Pros mind, but not in mine. Therefore I have not lost this........what do you call it again ?........oh this "game".
Debate Round No. 1
Brainmaster

Pro

I have defined the game in my post. By thinking about the game and posting this I have won.

Vote pro
Illegalcombatant

Con

I thank Pro for their reply.

I read your definition, but all I heard was blah blah blah blah ( I wasn't really paying attention). What is this "game" that you speak of ? How can I think about something, when I don't understand what this something is ?

Vote Con.

Reasons for voting decision: Based on the definition, Con's only way to win would be to make posts saying "sorry, I didn't read my opponent's post and I'm just posting to end my turn" there by allowing him to complete the debate without being able to be proven that he was thinking about the game. By addressing it, he shows that he did think about it and we have to accept the definitions.

Reasons for voting decision: Con probably really did lose, but pro did a terrible job of proving it and did not address Cons "I'm not really paying attintion" and "I cant understand you" defense even though it would not have been hard to argue against. conduct from Con because though "bla bla bla" was effective its still too childish sounding for a mature debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Con can't lose a game he doesn't understand. However, everyone is playing the game, so he did indeed lose the game. PRO just didn't mention it.
