Sandman duel  
« on: Mar 14th, 2004, 5:52am »

A little like Towr's wishfull thinking, I found this game on another site. There, it's being going on for 13 pages!
 
Here is a copy of the 1st post there:
 

OK, here we go:
For those of you who have not partaken of the joy that is Sandman:
This is "the oldest game" practiced by gods, mortals and Endless since the beginning of time; what you do is you choose a form, and two adjectives to go with it "I am bull, snake-crushing, heavy-footed", and your opponent then chooses a form to defeat that "I am anthrax, butcher-bacterium, warm-life slaying"
Rules are, no undue escalation (eg "I'm a spider" - "Hah! I'm a nuclear holocaust"), undue hesitation or lack of imagination. Also, if you're duelling with a specific person, state the user at the beginning of the post to save confusion.
You people out there may think this is a lame idea, but hey, give it a try.
 

 
 
Let me start:
 
I am a hurricane, fast flowing, everything destroying.

Ralph Nader is more than a columnist, he is a "Consumer Advocate." He also ran in the 2000 election, and some people claim that the small percent of votes he got in Florida and other states prevented Gore from beating Bush.  
 
Now, people are predicting that Nader will do the same thing to Kerry. Anyway, something else to defeat Kerry.
 
I am gay marriage; politically divisive, conservative democratic voter party changing
