The Haiku Card Challenge
« on: March 26, 2015, 05:41:20 pm »

So counting words in this thread reminded me of counting syllables in haikus, and I thought, why not explain what a card does in a haiku?  Because that would be awesome, right?

For clarity, "haiku" is meant to be American haikus in English, the standard 5-7-5 structure you learn about in elementary school.

Only show good cards

Condescending to say that?

Which ones depends on the board,
Mogami River.

One for sorrow, two
lead to a summer flock of

Racist stereotypes are
Not that amusing

Making jokes with mine and mint
Gets you free upvotes.

Trash junk, alt gain, but no buy
More of a crusade

Moat by scott_pilgrim
Draws and blocks attacks.
Answer to ev'ry puzzle:
Ozle: "Is it Moat?"

Mountebank by Elanchana
Junk your friends up twice
Give them curses and coppers
Games can get nasty

Oasis by schadd
discard 'state, i guess
will it be the better choice?
i just watch others

Pawn by Elanchana
Pick two bonuses
But please don't take forever
Just to say "cantrip"

Peddler by Robz
When plus-buys abound
They disappear like snowdrifts
At Spring's first sighting

Throws their high costs in the trash
But where's the bonus?

Clever as a hare
Seduced by sunny green lands
Wisdom crawls him by

emotions from your stone cold
heart, discard the rest.

junking sets standards

Gain all the Actions

Swindler by schadd

Wish for more wishes.

Claim thyne prize! To puzzled looks
You choose horse, not gold.

Thy rival mutters curses.

Night finds you alone,
In a dismal town. Fearful,
You call for more friends.

Harem by Arctic Penguin
Poor choices brought you,
Still, you wonder, why pay to
Be objectified?

Lighthouse by Arctic Penguin
On the horizon,
Hope shines bright. To spectral ship
You say, "Not today!"

Transmute by Arctic Penguin
Alchemists dream of
Making gold from lesser coin,
Instead, get more junk.

Counting House by Asper
Fiendish Mountebanks!
How to reach Colony now?
This weakling can do.

Jester by schadd
fun in 4-player

nay, i merely joke

Jester by werothegreat
It's only turn five
But all the piles are empty
Six-player game: why?

Rebuild
Beats most strategies
All but the strongest engines
But not with Shelters

Okay I'm expecting much better from all of you.

Oh man. Prepare yourself for the retort from SCSN and MicQ

(optimized simulation suggests that rebuild is at most marginally worse with shelters)

As many people use the word, a "haiku" is expected to involve a seasonal reference and a juxtaposition. Without those elements, what you've got on your hands is a senryū. Hey, it's a living language; on internet forums these days, "haiku" has come to include senryū for many people. Still, why not take on the additional challenge of making full-on haiku?

So, spelled phonetically, it's three "syllables" (はいく), but pronouced in Japanese, it's definitely "HAI" and "KU".  If you were to say "HA" then "I" then "KU" I don't think any Japanese speaker would understand that you meant the poetry, and would most likely think you were talking about taking a hike (ハイク).

That said, I don't know the rules for using the word haiku in a haiku.

That said, I don't know the rules for using the word haiku in a haiku.

Okay, looked it up.

The rule for haiku in Japanese is to count the on (音) in each line.  Counting on is just counting the phonetic spelling of all the characters, so in the case of haiku (俳句), you'd write it out as はいく and it would count as three on.

So, in that sense, sudgy was "correct."

HOWEVER -- given Witherweaver's haiku was written in English, I think you have to go with the syllable count as pronounced, and keep it at two.

Surprising that no one has linked to this yet. Last time someone tried to start a thread like this, it was closed immediately with a link to the original.

Surprising that no one has linked to this yet. Last time someone tried to start a thread like this, it was closed immediately with a link to the original.

I didn't know about that thread.  Oh well, this is like the second volume of the Dominion Poetry Series.

My thought was the standard (in American schools) 7-5-7 5-7-5 syllable structure.

Man, eHalcyon. Not everyone in this forums is a native english speaker and thats fine.

I am proud to speak five languages more the less fluently, but only in my mother language i have something like a sensible feeling for the nuances of the language. I learned a lot of different poems and metres in school, but in my cultural circle haiku is none of em. I assume in Burning Skull`s neither. So, a little bit more patience would be fine.

I don't think I've been harsh in pointing it out.  In the case of Burning Skull's three, none of them were even close, so I literally wasn't sure if he was serious.  If you don't know what a haiku is, it's easy to find out online.  Is counting syllables really so difficult for non-native English speakers?

For the record, English is technically not my first language either (though it is my most fluent).

For me I can say, yes you are right, i could have informed myself what a haiku exactely is. I just was lazy and assumed its a short poem with three lines.  I dont think either you were harsh but neither inviting. I like the way, Witherweaver did it. He explained haiku after recognizing that not everyone get it right.

The 5-7-5 definition isn't strict or universal, even in American haikus.

Fair enough. :P

@Witherweaver, I know that modern Japanese haiku has moved away from counting, but the 5-7-5 structure is still the traditional format that people commonly think of when talking about haiku.

Also, the 5-7-5 in Japanese isn't really syllables. It's letters, though each letter in Japanese is generally an entire syllable. But, for example, Gendo, (more properly spelled Gendou), would be 3 syllables, not 2.

Here are some Haikus about cards in use. See if you can guess the card and situation described.

Wishing Well
Atop wooden deck
You spy me, peer inside, and
Wish for more wishes.

Tournament
O' landed knight come
Claim thyne prize! To puzzled looks
You choose horse, not gold.

Torturer
Once fear'd tormentor,
Thy rival mutters curses.
Alas, they've run out.

Shanty Town
Night finds you alone,
In a dismal town. Fearful,
You call for more friends.

Harem
Poor choices brought you,
Still, you wonder, why pay to
Be objectified?

Lighthouse
On the horizon,
Hope shines bright. To spectral ship
You say, "Not today!"

Transmute
Alchemists dream of
Making gold from lesser coin,
Instead, get more junk.

But Gendou would be げんどう, which is four letters...

Also, for whoever wants to look it up, does something like ちゃ count as one or two?  Because it's one syllable with two letters.

Contrary to popular belief, I do not run the wiki all on my own.  There are plenty of other people who are actively editing.  Go bother them!

For the cost of Gold,
Search for treasures in your deck.
Is it worth the cost?
