A good test would probably have a few of all three in order to differentiate among the teams. People on our team in the event at nats said the words were relatively hard. Personally, I'd hope to get the hard words (if prepared well) because it helps you get ahead of those who haven't prepared as well.

basically, its all about communication. know your partners well, and try to guess what theyre thinking when drawing stuff. in my opinion, teammates that are friends are gonna do a lot better than 3 randomly chosen people. also, try to keep it simple. you dont have to have an incredibly detailed drawing, its just gotta be enough to get the other person to figure out what it is.
Hope that helped.

OK, I searched the archives and came up with this just for the folks on this board. There is no link to this ANYWHERE so don't lose it!

I'll change it back after I fix it so you can't cheat! It will take a while since I will be making a trial run of the 2008 GLC starting tomorrow morning.

I don't think you have to do that. I won't even be doing the event, and anyone who is serious about it would take full advantage of such precious resources.

I feel kinda bad now that the people who actually need this can't use it now. :cry:
