1000 Blank White Cards II - Round 7!

1000 Blank White Cards

The cards aren't all made yet. We'll make it up as we go along.

GAME TWO!

So that first game was pretty fun, huh? Here is where the SECOND game of 1KBWC will begin!

The Rules

  • Your turn begins when I send you a link to a card via PM.
  • During your turn, play a card by posting an image of it to the thread and doing what it says.
  • Unless otherwise stated, a card can be played on any one player, and any mention of "you" means "the player this card is played on."
  • If a card requires you to do something, you must do it by your next turn.
  • If you do not play a card within 24 hours of your turn, you lose your chance and the next player gets their card.
  • Alternatively, after recieving a card you may skip the rest of your turn to get two more cards.
  • At the end of the round, I post a recap of what happened and provide an update of the current game state.
  • If we run out of cards or (equally likey) completely break the game, it ends and the player with the most points wins, provided no cards have changed the win condition by then.
  • If you have a blank card, you may create a new card and PM it to me. I will add it to the deck and send a random card back to you.
  • Submitted cards should be .pngs about 300×400 or 400×300.
  • I may create other rules during the game in response to new elements your cards add.
  • Make the game as fun as you can! That's what it's all about!

To Join

Just send me four cards of your own design in a PM and I'll add them to the deck! We use these to get started. Turn order will be determined by the order I recieve the players' cards in. Cards need a picture, a title, and a description of what they do. If the card has an ongoing effect( like giving someone a special ability or adding a new rule to the game), it stays in play and its effect ends when the card goes away. If it's just a one-time thing( like drawing a card or losing some points) the card is discarded after use. Usually.

So far I've gotten cards from phantaskippy, Mezike, and TheJayMann. BlueHairedMeerkat, Silverleaf, and Ronway still must send me their four starter cards. As I mentioned in the other thread, this second game isn't gonna start for at least a week or so, so there's plenty of time to get them made.

Also, I've just created this one card that I'm really excited about and can't wait to see how it works! I don't wanna give anything away, so all I'm saying is cards that make players lose points will get pretty valuable...

(On a side note, I'm really excited for the card one particular person got in their starting hand)

Mezike has not responded within the 24-hour time limit. Thus, he has lost his turn and play goes to BlueHairedMeerkat. Sorry, Mezike, I gotta keep the game moving!

I play a CENTIPEDE!

Looking down, I count six legs that are mine; two human legs (definitely mine) and four chair legs (and the chair is mine).Now you may say that I'm being ridiculous, that I don't have a leg to stand on, but the card clearly states that it's just legs you have, not necessarily legs attached to you, so I so have a leg to stand on... and that leg brings me to 700 points :P

For this round, I shall ask, how many Ronway's does it take to screw in a light bulb, when the ladder is lathered in soap?

(I was expecting people to use the Demon Cat to get information related to the game, but silly questions work fine too I guess)

Seven. One to rinse the ladder off, dry it, and put the freshly-cleaned ladder neatly away in the closet; three to form a human pyramid under the bulb; one to climb the Ronway pyramid and replace the bulb; and one more to operate the Ronway Cloning Device beforehand( yes, the device only works on Ronway. Nobody knows why).

Also, here are the rules for handling cards with HP:

Additional Rule: Cards with Hit Points

Any time you activate a card effect that causes player(s) to lose points as part of its use, you may shift the point loss portion of the effect from a player's score to the HP of an HP-holding card in that player's play area. Decide whether or not to do this for each affected player individually. If a card's HP is reduced to 0 or lower, it is destroyed. HP may be restored to cards in a similar fasion. It's possible for a card to obtain more HP than its starting HP.

It feels weird making a play without puns.

I neglected to include this in the rules, but in the game I'm basing this on if you miss your turn twice in a row you get removed or replaced. Given that Mezike hasn't been seen online for 5 days as of now, it looks like he might not find out the game began in time to play it. There don't happen to be any spectators who'd be interested in taking Mezike's place, does there?

Recap Time!

Phantaskippy kicked off the game by summoning Bill Cipher, the dream demon. Bill invaded the mind of a certain blue-haired meerkat, and gave phantaskippy intel and a pile of deer teeth.

BlueHairedMeerkat, in an effort to make sure his mental faculties were undamaged after the intrusion, decided to count his legs. Luckily, it seems he still knows how to count. He got a bit carried away and counted some other legs that weren't technically a part of his body, but... um... we'll cut him some slack, I guess. He's probably fine, right??

Ronway also called forth a monster; that weird, semi-omniscient cat thing from Adventure Time. He needed its special brand of almost-knowledge to determine how many of himself he would need to change a lightbulb.

Mezike went mysteriously missing, and has not yet acted this game. In his absence, the Penguin Mafia took over his play area, sent by Silverleaf at the round's end.

Status:

The deck has 66 cards remaining.

Phantaskippy has 0 points and 34 deer teeth.

Mezike has 0 points and might get replaced if he doesn't show up next round!

-May not play cards. Must instead give a random player all but one of the cards under Mafia Penguin.

BlueHairedMeerkat has 700 points.

Ronway has 0 points.

-Can get one almost-accurate answer to a question each round. , 500HP

Silverleaf has 0 points.

 

So wait, how does one get rid of the Mafia Penguin card if it's in their play area?

I am still around folks! Starting a new job tomorrow so my attention will be fully on that for quite a while. Given the tight timescales on this game I cannot commit to completing my turn on time so it might be best to sit this one out to prevent any unintentional disruption.

Have fun!

That's fine! I actually just got a job( as a game artist! ^‿^), too, so it's possible I won't be able to keep this running. I'll try my best, though. This is a lot of fun.

I think the simplest way to handle this is to just put Mafia Penguin back in Silverleaf's hand, let everyone who sent a card to Mezike get it back, and let Silverleaf play the Mafia Penguin card for free next turn.

And because I couldn't bear to see this card shuffled back into the deck, I'm gonna play it for Mezike before I dissolve his hand:

>You can read the aforementioned .txt file here.

Lemme just generate some Pochimeras for you...

OK! Phantaskippy gets a Weepinoom:

BlueHairedMeerkat gets a Magnebro:

Ronway gets a Grichoke:

And Silverleaf gets a Dragoneot:

Have fun! :D

Oh, right, my turn. Hmm...

Oh phanta, why'd you play that on yourself?

For now I can't resist play'ng this on you:

You can use one or both abilities any time during your turn, except for ones that have been expended already. You may do so now, while it's still your turn.

My god, this is going to require so much dice-rolling on my part...
Anyway, the Confusion move recharged at the end of your turn, the Thunderwave move didn't.

Also, let's make a rule that you can only be affected by one special condition at a time. Yes, this does mean that ****ing annoying confused/paralyzed combo isn't possible here like it would be in the real game, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice. What you did is fine, of course.

The confusion only has a 50% chance to take effect. Just attempt to take your turn as normal, and afterward I'll

A) Tell you whether the confusion disrupted your card play(s), if any

B) If it did, I'll undo your card play(s), select a random player, and play a random card from your hand on them for each unsuccessful card play

C) Tell you if the confusion effect went away at your turn's end( a 1 in 5 chance)

Right, this should be interesting. I use both Aerial Ace (to ignore the "sometimes this card effect won't happen" rule) and Dragon Dance (to double the effect of my next card play).

I play...

...on Meerkat, since he has the most points. You're welcome.

Also the Mafia Penguin takes a liking to Ronway. You know, the kind of liking that ends up with severed horses' heads in your bed.

Actually, since Thunderwave also gives card-granted abilities a 50% failure chance, then... hmm. Let me think this through.

First, I'll just go through all the things you attempted in the order they were mentioned, and determine which ones got through the Thunderwave.

Aerial Ace: Succeeds

Dragon Dance: Fails (because of Thunderwave)

Silly Match-3 Game: Succeeds automatically, assuming this is the extra card you played in conjunction with Aerial Ace

Mafia Penguin: Succeeds automatically, because I gave special permission.

So you manage to play both cards, but neither one is enhanced by Dragon Dance. And for future refrence, Dragon Dance doesn't work on cards played using Aerial Ace, because it ignores all non-pregame rules, including beneficial ones like the Dragon Dance ability.

Oh, you didn't make your normal card play for this turn. Was that intentional?

Aerial Ace doesn't get applied to your regular card play, it is a card play in of itself. Activating its effect causes you to play a card, and for that card play only the non-pregame rules about playing cards don't apply. So when you used it to put Silly Match 3 Game into play, that card play wasn't affected by Thunderwave( but the use of the Aerial Ace ability was; it still had the 50% chance of failure). In Sentinels language, Aerial Ace is like a power that lets you play a card. So now you just have your ordinary card play left.

Recap Time!

Phantaskippy decided this game wasn't challenging him enough, and took a vow to speak only in iambic pentameter.

Speaking of challenges, Mezike left the game but started a Pokémon battle before relinquishing his hand( I helped with that). The Pokémon starters were a little... off, though. Um... y'know how two Pokémon can breed even if they're different species, and the offspring will always just be the mother's species? Turns out that's a myth. It's the only way I can explain the bizarre Pokémon chimeras (Pochimeras, for short) we found here. A Weepinoom, a Magnebro, a Grichoke, and a Dragoneot were given to phantaskippy, BlueHairedMeerkat, Ronway, and Silverleaf respectively.

BlueHairedMeerkat decided this game still wasn't challenging phantaskippy enough, and put a linguistic curse on top of his iambic pentameter-speak. He is now mostly unintelligible, but that's how you know he's HARDCORE. Ronway and Silverleaf weren't left out; the meerkat's sidekick took care of them. Ronway got hit by a psychic pulse that scrambled his brain, and Silverleaf got stunned by a wave of thunder.

Ronway was confused, but quickly snapped out of it and got even with that darn meerkat by burning his keyboard, then having his Pochimera kick him twice for good measure.

On Silverleaf's turn, the Penguin Mafia moved their base of operations over to Ronway's play area. Then Silverleaf retaliated against BlueHairedMeerkat while he was distracted with some new, addictive puzzle game. She tried to do double the damage, but the paralysis kicked in before her Dragoneot could use the mystical Dragon Dance.

I was wondering when that translator would show up...

Anyway BlueHairedMeerkat loses his next turn and play passes to Ronway.

Oh, and for the Poorly Implemented Drafting System, let me know which cards you all keep so I can keep track of where everything is still.
