icon Kill the Kitten! (+2)  
I found this game from a female friend of mine in St. Louis--we went to a coffeeshop, she introduced me to it, and I fell in love with it.

Premises:

1. One person draws a kitten.
2. One person tries to kill it.
3. The first person attempts to save it.
4. It is a picture game, and depth is not an issue. (A tank could be the same size as a {arguably large} ant.)
5. All of the pictures stay until the game is over.

Premises 2 and 3 don't hold much water here though...it would be rather silly to just have 2 people playing! So, instead...

Internet rules!

1. I have drawn a kitten. It shall be the base kitten, which would be an interesting phrase used out of context. If somebody draws a better kitten, or one that doesn't resemble their own (I don't kill pets...that's someone else's job.) then feel free to create another base kitten.
2. Somebody attempts to kill the kitten. To do this, copy the image to your own files, add something new AND fatal to it, and post an explanation of how your drawn object will kill the kitten.
3. Same as number 2, with Protection instead of Death.
3.5. All of the pictures stay until the outcome of the game is decided.
3.75. Try to keep your images relatively small-the best games come from an image crowded with many different ideas, causes and effects, as opposed to one large idea that covers the entire image.
4. If there is a double Death, or a double Protection (posted at the same time), then the kitten is Killed or Saved, respectively. The second person to post declares it, and their next post states either "I have Killed the kitten!" or "I have Saved the kitten!" I'm kind of going on the honor system here, as it's hard to determine if something was actually a double Death or double Protection by time alone. (Someone could have been waiting to pounce.) If there is a large enough time gap between posts (1/2 hour or more), then other posters can ignore the second post, and base their next drawing off of the first poster.
4.5. If somebody has a really good idea for how to kill the kitten, or how to protect it, somebody else can declare the kitten Killed or Saved, and a third person can second it (following?). The artist of the good idea can not claim it nor second it. This will allow for more Kills/Saves. Limit to rule 4.5: There must be at least 6 previous pictures, not including the base kitten.
5. If the "board" gets too crowded, anybody can declare a "Cat Game", but the motion MUST be seconded by the next poster.
6. This is not a venue for artistic criticism-positive or negative. Critique of the idea is okay, but not the art itself.
7. I will keep a running tally of Kills, Saves, and Cats in this post.

8. Attach your picture, and then edit your post to link to it. Not only will this cause the picture to show up, but you'll also see if you've double posted, and can declare a Kill or a Save. Thanks Banjooie for the tip on this.

9. Have fun, and be creative!


Kills: 2
Saves: 1
Cats: 3
Metas: 1 (see cat 5)

You need to attach your picture to the post first, and then you can use the [img] tags to make a link to the attachment itself. Linking directly from your folder on your C drive only enables you to see the picture since it's on your computer but not on the internet.

Dynamite. Strapped onto its back and lit. Simple.


Be sure to save them as .gifs or .jpgs. .bmp and other formats are way too huge.

Explosive fuses put out with a fire hose. Result: one wet cat with dynamite strapped to its back.

Take that! A dagger to the back. The most simple possible kill. It was the best image I ever made.

Rowrowrow, he has 1337 transmuting skills. Don't bother him.



Let's meet our friend, the chainsaw.




Rowrowrow, he DID save the kitten. Like he said, a butter knife can't cut worth squat.

Hey, hang on. I got the impression that we should include all previous attempts in the image ? I combined everything added so far into one image, and added my own threat:



Who can defeat Evil Pacman ?

Ah, but did anyone else see the Architect placing the bomb? It probably will relight the dynamite, and then take out most of the objects on screen with it too (no water could possibly put out a dungeon fuse; they're designed to last).

Now now, people, remember the long discussion we had in that topic in the Development board - graphics from DROD: Journey to Rooted Hold graphics are not allowed to be reproduced without permission. That being said, remember that zex emphasised that graphical talent is not supposed to be a key part, so I would hope that for future reference, you either draw up your own, or use AE's graphics, which are all free to use.

Now that I'm finished acting responsible, I'm quite angry that Doom beat me to the punch, as I had a good one too. Thank goodness Schik put flood control on the forum.

But nevertheless, they are still free-falling onto solid ground. Which, by the way, is deadly.

Fortunately, there was a conveniently placed trampoline, with soft, fluffy pillows beneath, just in case the gravity was too much for the poor trampoline.

It is bigger because it is a .bmp format.
Here use the the attached.
To put the picture in your post, post the picture as an attachment and after that, right click on the attachment and click on "Copy Link Location" or whatever your browser says.
Then, edit your post and do this: [img]Paste the link location here[/img]

Yeah, I've attempted to add something onto the board, but there's no room, so I'm going to call a "Cat Game" so we can get a new cat and new space.
