So basically, this is/will be a forum version of 1000 Blank White Cards. It is similar to 100 Blank White Tiles, but this game actually existed before 100BWT. For those of you who do not know the rules, I will now explain them in great detail.
You start out by shuffling a deck with 100 cards in it-
Who said that? Who the f*** said that? I'm warning you, I won't start this card game until someone owns up!
~Sorry, that was me.
Get the hell out of my thread!
Where was I? Oh yeah. The 100 cards will consist of cards from previous rounds and blank whites, at what I hope will resolve at a ratio of 1:1. I'll then deal 5 cards to every player, and randomly determine a turn order. On your go, you must do the following in this order.
1) Draw a card. Nothing special, really.
2) (Optional) If you have Blank Cards, you may turn them into actually playable cards by giving them a name and rule (And image, if we decide to go down that road).
3) Play a card in front of yourself OR another player. Usually, this will just end up in you/them gaining/losing points, but some cards can have some really silly effects.
When making a card, there are a few rules to adhere to.
1) Cards may only give/take away a maximum of 1000 points either way.
2) Cards may not "tally" points e.g. you can't have a card that gives 5 points every time a card is drawn, but you can have, say, a card that is worth the number of cards in the owner's hand.
3) No force winning/losing, even by stupidly complex death machines.
4) Be cool. Don't make an uber powerful card without some kind of drawback.
5) Rule 0. If I think it's game breaking, I invoke it.
I should probably mention that whenever a card is destroyed, discarded, nuked by some other means etc. it goes into the Discard Pile, which is shared by all players. You can use it in card effects if you want. The game ends when a player cannot play a card (usually because he has no cards in his hand and there's no cards in the deck). This ends the game, regardless of the situation the other players are in. I'll then do a final point tally, and the winner is the player with the most points. Some stuff happens before/at the end of the game, but I'll tell you about that when we get to it.
Because my ability to type rules is low, have a link and an example game.
Let's pretend we have a game in which only 3 players are involved, A B and C. There are 7 cards in the deck, and each of them have clear space in front of them and, via some stroke of luck, 2 blank cards each. A goes first, and draws a Triforce Piece (+250, if you have 3 Triforce Pieces, increase this card's value to +1000). He quickly makes another Triforce Piece and plays the first one. B draws another Blank, so he makes Royal Demands(- 200, When a player draws a card, he must either give you a card he owns or discard the card he just drew). C draws a Blank, but because he has no cards to give he discards it. He makes a Tornado(Destroy all cards on the table. ALL OF THEM.), disposing of the Triforce and the Royal Demands.
A gets his go, and draws a Graverobber(-(Number of cards you own * 100), When this card is played, you can take any of the top 5 cards in the discard pile and play them in any order). He draws another Triforce, plays the Graverobber and takes the Triforce and Royal Demands. B gets a Blank, and is forced to discard it. He decides to make a Hangman(When this card is played, call a player and a letter. If the called player has a card(s) in his hand that starts with that letter, he must give any and all cards that start with that letter to you and you must then destroy this card. If he does not, this card's value becomes -500) can calls A with the letter T. He, of course, has a Triforce Piece, and therefore must add it to B's hand. C draws a BOMB(When this card is placed into the Discard Pile, it detonates! All other players must discard their hands). He turns his final Blank into a Cake(+500)
A draws the last card-a Blank. He decides to make a Graverobber and claims both of his Triforce pieces! B cannot actually play, because his hand is empty and the deck has been cleared. Therefore, the game ends, and it is time to tally scores.
A has 2 Graverobbers, 3 Triforce Pieces and a Royal Demands. The Triforce Pieces are worth 1000 each, but the Graverobbers take 600 each in wages, and the King taxes 200 points, giving an overall total of 1600. B has nothing, and C has a lie-I mean, CAKE worth 500 points, so A wins.
Yes, I had to make an overly complex example.
After that huge hunk of rules and a bit of maths, I can hold 6 players, and I will give them out to whoever can answer this question the best-"If the question to Life, the Universe and Everything wasn't "What is 6 times 7" but the answer was still 42, what would you think the question would be?"
I also need a bit of a hand making a final choice-do I run the game through just text or should I demand images? Text would be a lot easier on me, but images could be very fun. I've put a poll up, but feel free to have a debate.
I should probably rephrase what I meant-"If the question to Life, the Universe and Everything wasn't a sum of some form or other, but the answer was still 42, what would you think the question would be?"
I've got it! the question is "What would be the answer to the question which has the same answer as the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything and isn't a mathematical operation of some form or other."
@Ninjas: The Procrastinator in Chief is along the right lines.
So we have to think of somewhat nonsensical stuff?
"How many mile-long-objects does it take to fill 1000 blank white cards of unknown size, if the mile-long-objects are compressed into an unknown density?"

Re: 1000 Blank White Cards-The Forum Game!
Well, if we're going along the lines of weird and nonsensical stuff, then:
"Complete the following:
Before there was the world, there was darkness. After that, there was the world. Before man, can monkeys. After that, there was man. Before system __, there was system 32. After that, there was system __."
So my backup intellect kicked in, and I realised that doing images would be too stupidly hard for me to manage. If people want to make little images to go with their cards, fine, but I won't be using them in my posts. Sorry =(
Anyway, I got a friend to judge this, and he has decided on the 6 players that will play this game. They are, in the order he decided upon them (Which basically means in no particular order);
