View Full Version : The Epic Game

No, this isn't a Greek mythology trivia thread and definitely not a discussion thread about Gears of War.

The Epic Game is where you put your poetical powers to the test. It's just like the rhyming game, only with a dash of more sense. This is how it works:

I start by making a statement and then you have to top it up with a statement of your own. But the catch is, The Statement must Rhyme. The second catch is, The Statement must be, even if in the remotest sense, connected to the last statement

Also, you cannot use the last word of a statement within five turns of it's last posting. Wat was that?

If the last word in my sentence was "round", you can type anything rhyming it, except "round". After five posts since my "round" post, it becomes legal to use the word again.

Forum rules still apply. No flaming, sexually-explicit posts and definitely no double-posting.

Edit: The stanza changes EVERY PAGE, i.e. EVERY 40 POSTS. Feel free to change the rhyme-scheme there, but the statement must remain connected to the earlier one

Whew, let's start. Here's my first statement:

A long time ago, in a land far away

'Twas a man whose hair was frayed

02-28-2007, 03:13 PM
This man, who's name was Ray...

02-28-2007, 05:38 PM
Lived in a house beside the bay.

[What would be much easier is if every 4 or so posts, or "stanza" if you will, the rhyming pattern could change Or else we'll be stuck with words ending in "aye" the entire thread]

I think I will die sometime in May.

( BTW: if I did it wrong, ignore my post, I don't really get it.)

As he rushed into battle, the sky was gray.

(eh, im not a very good poet anyway :D)

and some guy went "Hey Hey it's Saturday"

03-11-2007, 01:19 AM
And Green Day jumped in screaming ''Holidaaaaaaaaaaay!''

(Sorry, I just had to say that :D)

03-11-2007, 05:52 AM
And Alexander the Great jumped into the fray,

And he went hey

03-12-2007, 11:33 AM
Isn't this where the drunkard lay?

Jae Onasi

Then Jae walked up and replied, "Nay."

03-15-2007, 12:07 AM
Then Emperor Devon say to Jae: "Hey!"

03-15-2007, 06:10 AM
(('Hey' was used 3 posts back, CSI.You can't use it again for another 2 posts.))
Continuing from Jae's post:

The man said, ''Oh well, good for him anyway.''

And the man started smiling every day

03-24-2007, 05:28 PM
(@Sabre: I think the rhyme scheme should be changed more often, or this might die. I'll change the scheme now, if you don't mind.)

But the man's smile faltered as he looked ahead.

Because he knew, he was not far from dead.

04-10-2007, 11:12 AM
(That be okay by me, I'm leaving charge of rules now)

For before him, stood a monster of bread

04-11-2007, 01:33 AM
Who's gun was full of lead.

04-11-2007, 04:49 AM
And it was holding the fabulous bear, called Ted.

Whose terrifying roar you'd dread
