RLLMUK the card game

Recommended Posts

So I've had an idea for a 2 player quick and easy card game based on the forum. Why have I had an idea for a game I could only play with people on here? I don't know, maybe because it's the 10th anniversary this year. But I digress. Here it is:


54 cards-

48 Post cards

6 Mod cards

The goal is to get the best rated threads, and the game ends when the cards have run out.

Each Post card has:

A Forum (one of Off Topic, Discussion or A&F)

A quote or post from a poster, either one of the loved greats, or one of the hated, from the past ten years, with the poster's name.

A rep score, from +3 to +12 for the greats, or from -5 to -10 for the not so greats.

There are also 2 values to be read from both sides when the card is landscape, a Thread Length from 2 to 5 and a Thread Value from 4 to 8.

The mod cards I'll get to later.

How to play

Deal 5 cards to each player. Then turn up 3 cards and put them landscape between the players so they can see the Thread Lengths and Values. These are now the Thread cards. These just tell the players what each of the 3 'Threads' are worth and how long they can be. Each player then takes it in turn to play a card to build up a thread. They can play their card in fromt of any of the three middle cards, provided that, if it's not the first card in that Thread, it is of the same forum type . They can also play a card on their opponents side, again as long as it is the same forum type if it isn't the first card down in that thread.

When a player has played a card they draw a new one. If they can't play a card they discard their hand, draw back up to five, and then play. Or repeat this until they can.

When the number of cards on one side of a Thread is the Thread Length, then no more cards can be played on that Thread on that side. Once both sides are the Thread Length then you compare the total reputations for that thread. The winner takes the Thread Card and all the Post cards are discarded.

If the Forum type for all the posts on one side matches the Thread Forum type, that person gets 5 bonus reputation when comparing total reputations.

Then deal a new Thread card to replace that one.

Once all the cards have been played compare the total Thread Values and you have a winner.

The mod cards just let you do stuff to either side.

Move post, move one post from one thread to another of the same forum type

Delete post, discard a post from a thread

Merge threads, combine two threads for scoring and thread length purposes

Lock thread, thread length is now the highest number of cards on that thread.

Change forum, immediately play a different forum type card on a thread.

Committee Overule, cancel a mod card

Apart from the last two, these are played instead of playing a post card.

And there we have it. Apart from the name. I'm thinking Trolls VS LOLs, although that's so obvious it must already be used.

Here are some example cards! So you've got the forum type, rep score, post, and then on either side the details if it's a thread card, the thread length and value.







Surely you should be naming it "The Computer Talk Place"?

I surely should.

Richard's graveyard-cash story is essential.

I've not seen that, can you post a link!

Yes, you're totally right, Shark Energy is the guy I was thinking of

It appears to have been culled at some point :(

Basically, some guy posted that he had been taking a bunch of cash to the bank for his uncle and lost it while walking through a graveyard. The story was sketchy as hell, and some quality forum sleuthing ensued, including someone drawing a map/timeline of the alleged incident that I remember pretty much pissing myself at. Gutted it's gone.

*edit* it sounds rubbish put like that. I wish I could do it justice, it was amazing.

I need more classic posts now, the forum doesn't matter.
