In truth, I’m feeling feint


Literally: empty – empty – truth – truth

Alternately: Two sides in a fierce battle, using every strategy and wile they can think of. Striving to avoid your enemy’s strengths (実) and attack their weaknesses (虚). Alternately, using a mixture of truth and falsehood in an attempt to draw out someone’s true feelings.

Notes: The second of each doubled character may be replaced with the doubling mark 々… but please use it for either neither of them, or both; don’t use it with just one kanji and leave the other.


Just a regular newspaper Go puzzle

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
