Mao starts off much like uno: I'll take two decks of 52 standard playing cards, shuffle them, and deal seven out to each player.

the goal is to get rid of all your cards. one card starts out face up, and each turn, a player places a card such that either the suit or value match. if its your turn and you cannot play, you get 2 cards, and your turn is skipped. 

here's the catch however, all players have a secret rule. if you fail to meet a player's secret rule, I'll penalize you by adding a card to your hand, and tell you who's rule you violated. multiple rule violations means multiple cards.

some example secret rules you can create: Jacks reverse order of who goes next. kings allow play of any card, spades can only be played on hearts or spades; etc.

note that there is no talking about the rules! if you are unsure of who goes next, you have to just gamble and see. (if it's your turn and you haven't posted in more than 14 days, I'll penalize you a card and go to the next player.)

I'll be the moderator, making sure all rules are enforced.

note that I'll post your current hand in spoilers; please everyone only look at your own hands!

Cut the 14 day deadline down and I would be willing to give it a try. That just seems like a long time to wait and will kill the game if someone does go inactive.

Why not keep the hands in a PM convo rather than use spoilers? The temptation could be too much for people. Not saying people can't be trusted but if I saw a sign saying DON'T LOOK IN HERE! I would be almost compelled to look. Human nature. *shrug*

well pm boxes can get quite full quite quickly, I'd like to not unnecessarily fill them. also knowing another players hand isn't a big advantage.

alright framm, lets make it 7 days.

I must say that I like the PM idea. It shouldn't fill  up too quickly if we keep it all in one PM...

Why not. I haven't played many games lately and this'll get the blood flowing. I presume we will each pm you with our own rule?
