We were too worn out to kick his butt so we all just went to bed.

`The one we always refer to as uber-evil is this one, "if ... the
``number of black pyramids is a prime number." I don't know who the
``author is.
`

`If I want to talk about a hypothetical evil rule, I use something
``like "if ... the number of non-large pyramids is square and the
``number of non-blue pips is fibonacci." And one I've seen that led to
``everyone just leaving involved having three stacks that formed a
``correct addition statement.
`

`As for me, the second rule I created led to having to recycle koans
``and just about ran out of guessing stones (because by the end,
``everyone was getting the Mondos correct): "if ... the numbers of each
``size and color are even."
`

`And of course, word-count limits aren't always a guarantee of
``simplicity: "if ... it's a monocolored tree".
