Well, maybe for S&G I'll do Korean to Swedish for FUBAR! :twisted:

And I assume Vijay will have to then translate from Arrernte to some other less obscure language?! Who's going to translate into Cayuga?

Maybe he wants me to translate into Cayuga and then make you use a dictionary to translate from Arrernte.

Sure, I could do Arrernte to Maori.

Actually I suddenly had the idea to host the FUBAR game, although now I think I recall that Salajane said she'll do it after BTG 2018. If so, then I'll let her host and I'll participate. Otherwise, I'd like to host.

You can host this one and I will host the next one. I would like to participate actually. :)

Thanks! So, shall we do both at the same time (BTG and FUBAR)? Or wait?

Wait...I'm confused now. Salajane, you're still hosting BTG this year, right?

Maybe we should create "BTG General Discussion" thread instead of talking here?

Is there something wrong per se about talking here? Or we could just use the other BTG thread.

I just suggested. Of course there is nothing wrong with it.

I wonder if I can take part at all when I only know anything about boring European languages that nobody else wants to do. :(

I guess I'd offer anything Germanic, Goidelic, Czech, and if I have to, maybe some Romance.

That's okay. We need somebody to do the boring ones!

Maybe I didn't express that right, but all the other languages you're talking about feel more exotic. Maybe that's just because of my exposure to Goidelic languages, though. ;)

Which Goidelic ones? If you can do Manx or Gaelic, you could do those for FUBAR. Or something like Czech to Manx!
