Declaration of Victory: Predators Attack

Uk, Kevan win with voting all fingers to no fingers. We leave cave now. -Purplebeard

Rule 2.8 (Predators) states that “If no other caveman has done so in the last 18 h , during the time period 20:00 GMT until 06:00 GMT the following day, if no public fire is present, any caveman may reduce the intelligence of a random caveman by 2 (including himself).”

It is now 20:04 GMT, and there is currently no “public fire” (or any fire at all, since Badgerigar went idle carrying the only fire in the game). I select a random Caveman (which turns out to be myself) and do not reduce my Intelligence by two because I have a Pointy Stick.

Since “no other caveman” has done this in the last 18 hours, I then do it again, decreasing Rodlen’s Intelligence by 2. I then repeat this 343 more times (since I’m not required to use the GNDT, I’ve written a simple script to randomly select targets and keep track of results - there’s a full log of its output here).

If a Caveman is holding a Weapon, “his intelligence may not be decreased by this rule” - Ely, Travis and myself all have Pointy Sticks. After 345 iterations of the Predator rule, the Chief’s Intelligence drops below my own. At this point, I stop processing predation die rolls.

“If at any time a Caveman’s Intelligence is higher than that of the Chief, the Caveman in question achieves victory.”

I have 21 Intelligence, and Purplebeard has 20. I declare victory.
