I will respond to this One Page Game in kind, with the One Paragraph Game:

The purpose of the One Paragraph Game is to make sense of the One Page Game. The designer of the One Paragraph Game realizes that making sense of games is not a problem but is, in fact, a toaster. Only by identifying each slice of bread in a loaf as representing a different part of a hyper-intellectual's brain can we begin to toast the bread, thus purging it of convoluted, pseudo-intellectual nonsense. Then we can begin to apply the marmalade of common-sense, creating something that can be digested by the other 99% of humanity. The one paragraph game can only be played by learning the Bredtrik system, which doesn't seem to exist anywhere. In the meantime, feel free to point out trivial grammatical errors while ignoring the inherent unplayability of the game.

Hi Folks, I'm Terrence R., creator of kardtrick, the card game that will deconstruct nuclear weapons.

to Casey: this is an experimental game of a completely new type. I'm sorry if i offended you by being hyper-intellectual at times -- i think you must have looked only at the one page game, which was much more far out -- if you go to www.kardtrick.com/52cards.html, you should be able to get something more palatable. but at this stage its not an RPG or LARP (not yet, though you see hints of that in some of the cards, especially the five of diamonds). At this point, its a game of solitaire, to be played with a regular deck of cards. learning the meaning and the techniques behind each card involves mnemonics, but its worthwhile--the mnemonics are about dreaming techniques which bring on LUCID DREAMS. Most people are motivated to learn LUCID DREAMS because in LUCID DREAMS (becoming conscious that one is dreaming) you can literally do anything. So it's worthwhile and life-changing to learn how create these dreams. The reason it is done mnemonically is complex, but the first part of it is to try to imprint the dreaming functions onto the deep mind. Playing KardtricK as a game of solitaire, just before sleeping, is inculcating the mind with these techniques, and you see changes in your dreaming. Ultimately, this is a game about THE DREAMING vs. Nuclear Weapons. But first you must learn how to dream....

Sorry to confound you though. I am trying to make it all as simple as possible.
