Sure. Hint #1= potato.
Hint #2= http://www.clker.com/cliparts/4/2/2/4/1206568875698233629Angelo_Gemmi_olive_tree_branch.svg.med.png
Hint #3 is: "the Power Of five is The way to survive And The answer lies right in front Of your eyes"

We all deserve an equal chance, right? I wouldn't want to win if it wasn't fair.

The latest hint was too easy to solve, compare it with the latest Liar Game round and you practically get the answer, just like that.

We really can't tell if the hints mean what we think they mean, until the game starts though...

EDIT: Also, you are wrong if you think that coins will be used in this Prelim. There is no fee for losing this prelim, so it seems more likely there is no money involved.

Who said it is for the preliminary? The hints are stated for Round 1!!! Preliminary is just an opportunity for to get a hint that only the Winner of that Round can have (what they do with it is their choice from there on).

But they're called Preliminary Round Hints... I thought that the Winner of the Prelim gets to know what Round 1 will be like?

Probably just an extra hint, one that would tell them a lot like the truth to Hint #3 which I've found, it's a secret part of the website which tells me the from the initial idea of the First Round to the latest idea. Seems some ideas will be used for the later rounds. ^^

Still I sure someone else will catch on eventually, by the way, there's another meaning to my initial thoughts of hint#3 concerning "Power Of five is The way to survive" and there is a much clearer meaning to "The answer lies right in front Of your eyes", here's the hint: Look at the banner, you will notice something ^^

You mean the blazing, capital letters of POTATO? I know this is a survival round. What's the power of 5 mean? 5^5 is 3,025, 5^0 is 1, 5^1 is 5, 5^2 is 25, 5^3 is 125, 5^4 is 625. Then we have the possibility also of a time limit that could exist (if you take the capital letter of P off of Power, you get ower, which sounds like hour), like 5 minutes or 5 hours. I doubt they would put something like "you need five people in a group to win" because that defeats the purpose of a winner...

I think the power of five thing is an allusion to the Power of Five psychological theory which you can read more about at these places:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_%28philosophy%29
http://kleczek.wordpress.com/2008/08/20/five-types-of-power-and-the-online-community/

Maybe even looking at the Big 5 personality types.

This is all from a psychological perspective though.

As well these are all hints for round 1 not the pre-round, why would they give us hints for the pre-round, they wouldn't waste their time like that.

So the only way to win that is by a group? I hope there's a Round 1 revival round, just in case lol.

You guys don't mind sharing your thoughts of what the hints mean, even if you make be helping your opponents? That's very kind of you...^^ Though, not every person checks every thread in the forums. jocolor santa flower

Wow, either it's late, or I'm going insane...er.

But all the hints almost spell potato for the third time.

Potato
Olive Branch
The power...
And the...
...
One hundred yen

[Sorry if I wasn't supposed to actually say out loud what the hints were. But I'm not playing, so what do I care if it helps someone out. xP]

Or maybe I just have potato's on the brain....

I really know a more accurate view of these hints, but I really want you to learn to solve them yourselves so that maybe you can produce some interesting opinion which will help us all on here. This is to everyone, not just one person.

Since I feel like giving a hint, here it is, what game could be symbolised by a potato?

I believe the issue is not so much the answers to the hints, but what to do with them.

Put a sentence as a branch to an Olive tree, place the Potato as a fruit on the olive tree's sentence branch, confusing people if that is an Olive tree, and sell if for 100 yen.

Leronira PMs someone a particular message (maybe, the winner of the preliminary round). They quote the message and forward it on to someone else?

The problem with that idea is that it's difficult, if not impossible, to keep the single "potato" from being sent to multiple people.

Maybe it's a game of Cold Potato. I.e. everyone is given a unique "potato" at the beginning of the game, and you can share a copy of whatever potatoes you have with anyone else; whoever has the most potatoes at the end of the game wins.
