[2018 - Locked] Things are in a state of FLUX.

Post by *The Butler » Sun Oct 14, 2018 7:10 pm

So there's a card game called FLUX where you put down a card that keeps changing the rules of the game.

I figured we could try a forum version of that. Essentially, each time you reply (and you can't add to the rules until someone else has added), you create a rule (specific only to this thread).
A rule can only be ONE specific thing.

So for example, you might say, "You can't use the letter 'o' going forward."
But you can not say, "You can't use the letter 'o' or 't' going forward."
You'd have to pick which rule it is you want to enforce.

A rule that is in place can not be UNDONE until another rule that does not counter the previous rule, is in play.

These are the ONLY rules that can NOT be altered.

When a rule is enacted, it begins with the FIRST post after the rule is posted from.

Now keep in mind, rules are like the evilness of "the 3 wishes!" They're very specific! So if someone says, "You can't use the word rules anymore." The next person can type "Rules" and still get away with it, because the specific rule that was in place was all lower case.

For example, for the first rule, I might say, "You can't use the letter 'o' going forward."
The next person might say, "Yu can't use the space bar ging frward." Or if they wanted, since my rule was for lower case 'o' they could say: "YOu can't use the space bar gOing fOrward." Or they might even get fancy and use the 0, like, "Y0u can't use the space bar g0ing f0rward" (It all depends on how much they want to mess with the other players, in hopes of tricking them to lose a point).
Next person might reply, "AllWrdsHaveTBeCmbined"
Next person might reply, "AllWrdsMustBeInAllCAPS"
Next person replies, "YUCANUSESPACEBARAGAIN"
The next person replies, "Y0U CAN N0T USE THE SHIFT KEY."
And so on and so on.

Now, each person has 5 points. So every time you mess up (by not following an active rule), you lose 1 point. If someone loses all their points, everyone else wins, and the game starts anew.
If you catch someone who has messed up on a rule, you call them out (following all the existing rules when you call them out) and you get 1 health back - but can never exceed over 5.

Any interest?

If so - I will launch the first rule:

You can't use the letter O going forward.

You can't use the word "you" or words that rhyme with "you" going forward.

Keep in mind, you can only make ONE rule.

So you'd need to clarify which one it is (you can't impact more than one rule, which you would be doing).

Hold it! :shock:

Whoopee Cushion just said that we can't use three-syllable words, yet Russian Bot used the word "Beginning", which has three syllables. (And no silly bulls).

So deduct a health (and add one to yours if you're injured, which you're not - so just deducts from theirs).

We Can Now Use Three-Syllable Words! (And Yes, I Am Aware That The Word "Syllable" Has Three Syllables. Please Don't Point That Out).
