That was a fun thread. It is a damn shame it was ruined by cheaters. I'll never get why those couple of people had to ruin it and cheat. It was just a fun little thing, there was like what 10 people max even playing. Why cheat? I never knew you could do a reverse flavor search until the cheaters were called out, so at least I learned that.

Me and Melancholy we played that shit legit. We'd be all like hmmm that looks like a spearmint and from the texture and color it looks like Wrigley's. Search grocery stores for all Wrigley's!

Then the flavor search thing was revealed and that was the end of it. :ocry:

Online gum guessing is ruined by cheaters. Sounds about right.

I don’t remember it. Who cheated?

All of life is a cheat and the internet made it too easy

It was you Ian, you were the cheater :o

I do remember who the two were but I don't want to say, no reason to start drama over such a thing.

They didn't even try to hide it, I'd do my best to stump everyone. I'd look through lists of gums and pick out a flavor for some obscure gum and it would be immediately guessed When that happened I had some suspicions but still didn't think they were cheating for sure. What ended the game was when Mel posted some really obscure Japanese bubble gum and it was guessed in like an hour.
