Picture Wars!
« on: Dec 23, 2011, 04:52 pm »
Alright everyone: It's time to start one of the most unique, creative, compelling forum games known to mankind! Without further ado, I present to you...

Picture Wars!

How it works:
  • When taking a turn, post an image. (All you have to do is click the button right below the Bold "B" in the task bar and it will automatically insert the appropriate tags [ img ] [ /img ] (without the spaces). Then insert the hyperlink to the image you want to post between the "img" tags. And Done!
  • The image you post should 'beat', 'kill', 'defeat', 'best', 'destroy' / <insert synonym here> the image posted before you.
  • If it's not clear how your image defeats the image before you, add a small description
  • Use common sense when deciding which image to post. Try to avoid nukes, black holes, and so forth
  • Ironic and funny responses are allowed! In fact, they're what make the game even more enjoyable.
  • Keep it within community standards! While it may be tempting to "win" by posting a bikini clad lady covered in oil holding a machine gun........that doesn't fly here. PG at most please!!
An example:
Quote
Player A:

A lovely house.

Quote
Player B:


Quote
Player C:

Slowly but surely, but it'll work eventually.

The next person could post an oven (to melt the screwdriver into an unrecognizable blob), a sniper (to shoot the screwdriver out of the user's hand), or one of many, many other options.
Be creative!

Experience learns that it sometimes takes a bit to get running, but once it does, it can be really awesome.

So let's get started!

I'll start off, with the same image used in the example:

sounds fun!

I personally would like to bring a tortoise onto the stage, turn it into a racehorse, then into a hat, a song, a dragon and a fountain of water. One can dare anything in the theatre and it is the place where one dares the least. -Ionesco

Carnivores will be the first ones against the wall when the livestock revolution comes.

The Kiwi is no match for the power of the dark side!

Ok...  I have a great picture, but I can't figure out how to post it...  When I click the add image button, it gives me the image brackets, but I don't know how to put the picture between them.  Can anyone help a technically inept SM out?? :-)
I've never been paid a lot, but the theatre has kept me, and for that I shall be eternally grateful. Tony Church
