2000 Blank White Cards


[Reveal] Spoiler: Rules
2000 Blank White Cards is a game about making a game. Rules can be changed, scrapped, reversed, or created at any point by playing of cards. All you need to do to play is be able to make an image in Paint or another image editing program and host it on the internet - I recommend imgur.

During registration, each player will PM me 5 cards. These cards can be as simple or as complex as you wish, but many follow this guide:

Wikipedia (clearly the fountain of all knowledge) says:
A card consists (usually) of a title, a picture and a description of its effect. The title should uniquely identify the card. The picture can be as simple as a stick figure, or as complex as the player likes. The description, or rule, is the part that affects the game. It can award or deny points, change the direction of play, or do anything the player can think of. The rules written on cards in play make up the majority of the game's total ruleset.



I will add 5 of my own cards to the players pre-made cards, and twice as many blank cards will be shuffled in with these to create the starting deck. Each player will then be dealt a hand of 7 cards to begin with.

Each turn, players will be dealt one new card, and then play one card from their hand. They can play a pre-made card, or, if they have a blank card, create a new card and play it, simply by posting it in thread. The player list will be shuffled just before the game begins and turns will go from top of player list to bottom (and then wrap around back to top).
It is possible to play cards when it is not your turn, if specified on the card. However, at no point may a blank card be played when it is not your turn.

Once all the cards have been dealt out and played, the winner will be determined.

Cards target a single player which must be specified when the card is played, unless it specifically states otherwise.

Cards cannot cause a player, including yourself, to skip a turn.
Cards cannot erase Black Marks.

Deadline to play a card is 24 hours after new turn is announced.
Any missed deadlines or other rule infractions will incur Black Marks being added to your score.
3 Black Marks and you will be removed from the game. If you feel you will not be able to continue playing, please PM me and we'll see if we can find a replacement. If a replacement cannot be found, or if a player is removed from the game, any cards that player played will remain in play but their hand will be placed in the discard pile (after being revealed to all players).

The host retains automatic veto power on any cards played, and the host's decision on this is final. Some cards just make the game really soul-destroying to play - I'll allow some envelope-pushing, but if it's a card that's likely to render the game horrid to play then I'm not going to allow it.

By the way, if I do get two cards that are identical (from to players) I'll send them both back :heart:

Due to the nature of this game, the very method which determines the winner is likely to change mid-game. The game itself is about creativity rather than strategy though, so try not to take it too seriously.

Please don't post in dark blue.


[Reveal] Spoiler: Long winded thing on card theory - read this if you're confused about how points work
2KBWC handles point gaining rather differently to how it would be assumed to work. For example, if I were to write a card, "Points", saying "Give self +1000 points", the card itself is worth 1000 points. I then play that card, placing it in front of myself on the table and awarding myself 1000 points. These points can be taken away again by simply discarding "Points" - the card itself is what is worth points. Some cards do not have a point value until assigned, and indeed can have different point values for different players if it affects more than one - Leech Life, for example, has a point value of +(1/2 of target's points) for the player and -(1/2 of target's points) for the target. Hnngh played Leech Life on hamid95, so Leech Life is now worth +500 to Hnngh and -500 to hamid95 - these values are now set, and cannot change until the card is discarded and replayed, if such circumstances arise. If the card is discarded, Hnngh will lose 500 points and hamid95 will gain 500 points. It is therefore always possible to reset everyone to zero points by discarding all cards. Cards that affect more than one person are played into the centre of the table.

In this way, most cards stay on the table until discarded. The only ones which do not are those without a continuing effect - Nicking sugar, for example. It would be impractical for card stealing to behave in a continuous manner - Russell could not get the cards back by discarding Nicking sugar! - and so it is discarded immediately.

Note also that cards in the discard pile can, of course, be shuffled back into the deck, someone's hand, the playing field, and generally can be manipulated quite extensively. Destroyed cards, on the other hand, are utterly out of the game - destroying cards should not be done too often, therefore. If a written card specifies that it is "destroyed after use", I will translate that as "discarded", unless specifically told otherwise.

As a final note, it is impossible to create a card that cannot be discarded. Even if a card specifies that it cannot, it is trivial to write a card that says something along the lines of "all cards which say that they cannot be discarded now can be discarded". The rules and boundaries of this game are constantly in flux. Take nothing to be concrete. (except of course destroyed cards being gone. They are a definite rule that is immutable.)




[Reveal] Spoiler: Simpler rules - @Wolbre04
Send cards to me, 5 please. They should not be blank or include adding or removing black marks to/from players or include skipping a turn.
You get 7 cards each at the start of the game, which include, blank cards and cards submitted.
If you send in a card that is too similar to a card that has already been submitted, it will be returned (to both people that submitted it)
Each turn, play a card from your hand. You have 24 hours.
If you choose to play a blank white card then you must say what the action is (and supply pictures etc.)
Failure to play a card within time will result in a black mark.
I can veto any card you play.
My decision is final.
If you can't play anymore, tell me and I will try to find a subsitute.
Don't post in dark blue.

Happy now brennan? :P

Guys, please at least have thought about what you're doing for cards.
I don't care if it's a line of text and a picture screen-shotted from word, it's a card
You've got 7 days before I start stressing and nagging y'all :heart:
