Rules for the word game "Flush".

Please answer the question with four phrases that popped into your head. The number of players who write us the same phrase becomes the points you get for a phrase. The sum of the points for your four phrases becomes your score. The player with the highest score becomes the winner.

We will consider capital and small letters the same, but singulars and plurals, spaces, or other little differences are judged as different. So "Blue bird" and "blue bird" are the same, but "Blue bird," "Blue birds," and "Bluebird" are all different.
