Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[Cards Against Humanity] With your host, Guy Smiley! Round 5!
Since simonwolf's game is super-duper popular, and many people have expressed interest in joining a game of this, I figured I'd throw one up. It seems fairly light in the upkeep department, so I think I'm up for it. I'll take as many players as possible. I'm not sure if there would really be a limit, but if I get a whole butt-load I might have to make a cut-off. Sign up in bolded lime, first-come, first-served. Game rules can be gleaned from the narration or spoilers when I'm lazy.
That's right, folks! It's America's favourite game show host, Guy Smiley! You might remember me from such hit shows as Here is Your Life and Beat The Time, but I'm sick and god damned tired of the big networks telling me what to do, when to do it, and I'm here to run my own show! This is Cards Against Humanity! That's right, the new hit party game is now the new hit TV game show! Each contestant will take turns secretly submitting answers to my cleverly drawn questions. The studio audience, along with you folks listening at home, will decide which answer is best, and the winning submitter scores a point on the Point-O-Tron! Whichever of these lovely contestants scores the most points before the time limit expires wins the game!
Oh wait, that's right. I almost forgot! Your old pal Guy Smiley did a few years in rehab for a pretty nasty gambling addiction. Trouble is, he never really kicked it. In order to get my fix, I've added a bit of a twist to the game. During any round, you can bet one of your points to play an extra secret answer! Just scream at the top of your lungs that you Bet You've Got It! No one will know which answers are yours, but we'll all know what's at stake. If you win the round, you keep your point. If you lose, well, old Smiley knows all about that bitch, Lady Luck. Oh, and your bet point goes to the actual winner that round.
Now that we're all clear on the rules, the Card-O-Tron will give you your hand of cards, and we can begin! But first, those network dick-holes say we have to take a break to sell you some stuff you don't need! We'll be right back, folks!
The game will begin when we have a good amount of players signed up. Each round's question will be posted around noon EST, and answers are expected to be in by that evening (9:00 EST). The Card Czar (or the "studio audience") will be selected at random, and will sit that round out to send me the winner by the following morning. All this timing will most likely change based on how the group ends up working out, but continued delays and/or absenteeism will result in disqualification! It's only a quick PM to send in your turn, so I won't have too much sympathy if you're always late.
Regarding gambling a point: Just post something in bolded yellow that you are gambling on an extra card, and that'll count. And if you submit two answers without doing that, it'll still count as a gamble, but Guy Smiley will ridicule you in embarrassing fashion. Any of the above may change as well, if I suddenly realize this method needs tweaking for the Play-by-Post system.
