So I saw this and thought, can a fish play DROD?

With there being 11 different inputs (12 if the hold has clones or time tokens, one more with special commands), it would probably be best to have areas of the tank in between that don't do anything. Then some sort of separate interface for questions. Anyway, if someone can rig it up, let's see what happens.

Fortunately, I know a dog who is in love with a fish, so perhaps the answer is not too far away.

...And I bet this confuses literally everyone here.

Everything can play DROD as long as you can find a non-constant mapping from the thing in question to DROD inputs.

inb4 clock plays DROD

How's the clock going to undo or restart, though?

What are "undo" and "restart"?

Surely if <insert player here> can handle DROD, a fish would have no problem with it.

...I think this is the winner for most rank points on a post.

I think there was one post with rank points of +127 or something, but I couldn't find the post again.

It would have been more impressive if the "insert player here" account was created a while ago, waiting for its special moment of glory.

Yeah, it would need some sort of fail safe in place for getting trapped. It'd be preferable if it was made so that if the fish were immortal it might eventually finish at least KDD.

Once a fish dies it can legally be replaced by one of the same species, repeating as necessary until game completion. That could be the next Blind Race concept, betcha my tank full of catfish will beat your goldies fins down!
