1 Blank White Card by Tøm, GYØ Ben, Adam, GYØ Daryl, Askew., GYØ Jordan, GYØ Kieran!

May 9th, 2008 2:15 AM

INSTRUCTIONS: Play a game of 1000 Blank White Cards. Perhaps consider Fluxx for inspiration.

Take a picture or describe the best card in your game, decided by a vote, election, deathmatch, or what have you.

(We've been waiting on Daryl to add scans of ALL our cards here for far too long, and seeing as the task only calls for one, here's the task. It may be updated with further cards later)

1000 cards is a bloody big pile.

And even more singing...

main_londonbob00945029.jpgThings which were learnt

• Daryl cannot be moved, even by order of card.
• Jordan believes labour sounds like "blob-blob-lob".
• Kieran is good at stealing watches.
• Paradoxial cards telling Daryl he can't play until he plays a card, are fun.
• Adam is banned from singing in a welsh accent.
• Tesco bags are not fashoinable.
• Tom and Ben would make a bad couple, even if it were for 7 points.
• Adam can't spell.

The final scores

This is damn fun to do, go get some cards and do it yourself!

And I thought this was a safe task to do, relative to past completions. They keep getting better, though. Good work.

The video has convinced me that you kids don't actually exist, but are, in fact, cartoon characters escaped from the tv.

adam's one-man hoedown made my evening, even if it looked nothing like any hoedown i've ever seen. more of a sort of funny stroll in place, actually, or just a lot of arm swinging. still, hilarious.

I am so glad that I've seen that hoedown.

My life is better for it.

I live on a planet where Welsh Hoedowns can happen! Do you know how great that is?

It is clear that the epicness of Adam's hoedown was not fully appreciated at the time of the event. Nor, I fear, based on Minch's comment, will it be truely and deservedly appreciated in our lifetime.

Many centuries from now the beach of Great Yarmouth will be straddled by a giant effigy of Long Dead Adam. Like a giant Colossus of Rhodes, he'll stand above the recently unearthed wax museum, only, because of recently re-found technologies, this collossus will have moving ams that swing about, and a recording of the actual song will be pumped through speakers at his feet.

All in all alot like Great Yarmouth today, except that in the future ships and sheeps alike will be afraid to approach the forboding sight of The Colossus of Adam's Hoedown!

We were all gasping for air, to be honest, JTony, because we had laughed far too hard. So hard, in fact, that no noise was coming out.
