The Rules Game
« on: April 18, 2013, 11:54:31 am »
The object of the Rules Game is simple: win the Rules Game

How? Make rules.

Set-in-stone rules:

You may not make a rule that automatically makes someone win/lose the Rules Game (... wins the game, ... loses the game, "if you do this, you win," etc.)
You may not double-post. period. (even in accordance the the forum rules)
Once someone wins, they will be posted in a winners list in this post, and a new game will start.
You may not comment on other people's rules without posting a rule in the same post (just say "comment:" before you make a comment)
You may not negate other people's rules
Rules remain for the duration of a game. If you don't follow them, you are out.
Edits count as comments
Edits to a violating rule are disallowed unless made before the next rule is made.
You are not allowed to join once the first person is out.
When there are two people left, if no new rule is made within a day of the previous, the person who made the last rule wins!



Winners (so far):

I'll start:

I like poetry
And this is a cool haiku
All rules must be too

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

I sense a contradiction, one of the rules is to point out mistakes of your peers, but shouldn't people making mistakes be breaking rules and thus be out of the game?  o.O

Yes. If anything, future contestants were allowed to just point out the mistakes of only one dude towards the start and we could've, in theory, played indefinitely.
Most people seemed to understand the concept of the game, but because of everybody failing haiku's, I suggest we start over with an easier one.
Keep trying.

New game? I agree.
First Rule:

Every new rule must not include the letter a.

You must not use words over five.

Comment: Haikus don't have to have 17 syllables exactly, by the way.

Only 1337 people don't use the @ sign in new rules. The next rule must include proper speech, except where rules override this one.
Keep trying.
