ONE THOUSAND BLANK WHITE CARDS
So wait what is this crap
Remember that game, Calvinball? It's pretty much exactly like that, except online and with Photoshop.
Huh. Go on.
One Thousand Blank White Cards is a card game. Every player gets five cards. They go around one at a time, drawing one card and playing one card on their turn. Play continues until the deck runs out. A really simple concept, I know, but it gets a little more complicated/insane, so bear with me.
The trick in the game is that, generally, you're writing the cards, because the majority of cards in the deck are blank. You can do pretty much whatever you want with a card - make up a rule, destroy rules, modify rules, give people titles, make horrible and unreasonable demands, give points, anything you really want. Here's an example from a game that I was in:
Note the important elements: a title, an image, and what the card does. These are the three things that are pretty much required in every card, but things can get a little stranger as time goes by:
Listen I think you're getting the idea.
Wait hold on this isn't making sense
That's the intention, yes.
Why are we doing this
To win, of course! Kind of.
Cards will often hand out points, cards, glorbnaks, evil ex-boyfriends, etc. This is perfectly alright, but a true player of One Thousand Blank White Cards knows the point is to be funnier than all the other fuckers playing this game. If you make people laugh, you're winning. If you don't make people laugh, you're a loser and will never be cool, ever.
you can't tell me what to do, you're not my real dad
I am now, baby.
I'm running the game, my powers are boundless and unconstrained by the cards of players. I reserve the right at any time to ruthlessly remove anyone from play for not posting a card within 24 hours of their turn, or if they are terminally stupid. I am a loving dictator.
so how do I sign up
Register your interest in here, and PM me with five cards you have made
to be included in the deck. I'll be accepting the best five people to apply. Let's go for it!
