This is a pretty cool game I came across on another forum. It works like this:
I, the host, pick a category, and each player picks a card, the card can be anything. Once everyone has selected a card, I reveal the category.

Example: I select the category "Recycle-able". I do not reveal it yet.
Everyone submits the cards they choose:
Quote:
Acid-washed jeans
A Spitfire fighter plane
A slab of ham
The abstract notion of togetherness
Some sweet synthesizer beats
A Grub Bug
The artist formerly known as Prince


I reveal that the category is "Recycle-able". Now, you each have to convince me why the card you have submitted fits the category the most. I pick a winner, winner gets praise, winner hosts the next round. If the winner doesn't want to host or doesn't respond within a day or two, anyone can grab their spot and host if they want to.

You are free to use whatever twisted logic you want, you'll increase your chance to win if you make it creative. For instance, the jeans guy could say "Fabric is bio-degradable, I win." but then the synthesizer guy could say "Have you seen the state of pop music today? Is there anything more commonly recycled than sweet synthesizer beats?!"
Guess who would win that round. Hint: it's not the jeans guy.

The only rule, however, is that you have to make an attempt to validate your card no matter how ridiculously detached it is from the revealed category. I'll maintain a list of round results and submissions for bragging rights. :D

Let's start then? Submit your cards.

Clearly, a cursed bottle of whisky is the spookiest of all these things. Throwing cursed whisky at people makes them vomit, and if they vomit too much, they die. Thus, cursed whisky is actually extremely lethal. In fact, it's so lethal that anyone killed by it will come back as a ghost to haunt the place, because dying by whisky is so absurdly ridiculous that both hell and heaven refuse to accept their souls. Ghosts are spooky, especially those "created" by cursed whisky, because they're incredibly pissed. Of course, anyone would be pissed if they died this way to someone 50 levels lower than themselves! Thus, by extension, a cursed bottle of whisky clearly is extremely spooky.

Are you kidding me? Cursed whisky only exists in Elona, which is clearly a videogame only girly ******s who can't handle any spooky things play.

*expects deep hatred*

Besides, the pee is cursed, too. What do you think has more ability to make you vomit, bad booze, or someone else's pee that smells hundreds of times worse than regular pee? And anyone who died knowing the last thing they had smelled was someone else's urine is going to be really, really pissed, especially if the evaporating pee turns them into urine ghosts instead of normal ghosts. I think I'd want to massacre a lot of people if I had to spend the rest of my life smelling like that. And the tree was your favorite tree, too. What's more spooky than a random stranger soiling something you had always thought was safe? With urine from hell?

Therefore, massacring urine ghosts or really, really pissed normal ghosts that come from cursed pee stains are much spookier than cursed whiskey ghosts.

There've been many spooky things happening on Earth, and that must mean everywhere else in the universe, and having a map where anyone could see you wiping your butt, find old men in underwear watching My Little Pony, kids murdering everyone, that's pretty spooky if you ask me.

You can simply ignore a four-dimensional map of the universe, so you don't have to deal with all the disturbing stuff, but it's quite impossible to ignore being stabbed into the nose with a pointy mushroom.
And while people with some common sense can easily avoid being affected by cursed yksihw, dying in some way (e. g. by being stabbed violently and repeatedly with a mushroom) is absolutely necessary to become a ghost (urine or not) in the first place.

But if you'd have examined the map close enough, you would've know when and where someone is going to stab you, or anything else of anything, so you wouldn't get affected by anything, so you could do spooky things with the map by going to do spooky things to people! :P

EDIT: is this post against the rules? I didn't really get if it's the point to argue forever or just one post, since you didn't say about it?

You can try to one-up each other, I suppose, but don't get carried away. :P
