Fallacymania: party game where you notice fallacies in arguments

Reasoning is when you tell your arguments to another person. Thinking is when you make decisions for yourself.

I now see what you mean by fallacies being X (errors in argumentation) and cognitive biases Y (errors in thinking). However, you're using an idiosyncratic definition of the word "reasoning", and I would advise you to update your understanding so you reduce the chance of confusing more people in the future. "Reasoning" in many cases refers to internal thinking, as you can see explained here [http://www.dictionary.com/browse/reasoning?s=t].

They are fallacy cards. Fallacy can be explained as "faulty reasoning" or "bad argument", and cognitive bias is "mistake in thinking". They have many similarities and intersections, though.

What's the difference? I don't see a distinction between the phrases "faulty reasoning" and "mistake in thinking".

Time is wrong because of Russian timezones change; meetings start at 14:00 (local time).

How to Run a Successful Less Wrong Meetup

This 2 karma restriction creates inconvenience when an organizer wants to delegate the posting about meetup to another person who have to create new account. If it's an anti-spam measure, maybe it can be done in better way, such as optional phone number sms confirmation that will remove karma restriction from announce posting.
