In this game, the objective is to post a rule that affects other posted rules. Each rule has a list of rules that must follow all the rules above it, as well as itself.
As soon as a rule that has been posted before violates the rule, the chain breaks, and we start over.
So, let's say somebody posts a rule:
This means that none of the rules after this one can begin with the letter "U". The next person will post the first person's rule, plus his or her own:Originally Posted by Poster 1
The second rule does not contain any word starting with "u", so it's a valid rule.Originally Posted by Poster 2
Now, if a third person comes along and does this:
: then rule 3 violates rule 1 because it contains the word "unicorns", which starts with "u". The chain breaks, and the game restarts with rule 1.Originally Posted by Poster 2
Note that the first rule does not necessarily follow the second rule. Only the rules after each rule must necessarily follow it. Note that rules must follow themselves. For example, the following would not be acceptable:
: because the rule itself contains the word "all", in the quotes.Originally Posted by Poster 3
It is very important that the entire list of rules for the given round is posted in each post, with the add-on rule added on. Otherwise, it becomes very hard to follow what the current list of rules are.
That being said, let's have fun! I'll start:
1. All rules must contain some portion of red text.
