[MiniG___]Mox's Boulderdash
You and and your fellow travellers have been cursed by a mighty evil spirit for trespassing on his sacred ground! Each one of you are stuck on some sort of a ____ board, with invisible barriers preventing you from leaving your square. The evil spirit opens a wretched pit of a mouth and speaks, his voice like crunching gravel:

"For trespassing on Mox's sacred ____ grounds, you must participate in one yourself. The winner will be awarded their life, the losers, well, won't.

It is simple, really. Each 'turn' you will be permitted to move up to one square, into any square adjacent to yours. Each turn you will also pick a square adjacent to the square you are now on. A boulder will appear there.

At the end of each turn, the whole board will either spin to the right, left, or not move at all. Afterwards, the boulders will all move one square down. Any one in their way will be pushed away from them. But be warned, if there isn't anywhere to push, SQUISH goes your body. Got it? No? Good. Let the ____ begin."


The travellers look warily at each other. Are they really going to play this ____? It doesn't look like there is any alternative.

A Mini____! To join, just post on this thread.

Leave us be demon! We mean for you to mean us no harm!

We were just um, leaving now. And we totally weren't planning on stealing any ancient artifacts or anything on the way out if that's what you were thinking.

You know you should really have better signage around here. Because I did not know we were trespassing.

Yeah, big spike traps aren't too noticeable around here. Or maybe that's just me.

Speaking of which, I'm blind!

I say we oust this uppity, mystical monarch. Yes, subject him to his own sick game.

Unless we do, indeed, play scrabble. In which case, the monarch plays winner.

Yes, I think I would also slightly prefer scrabble to being crushed by boulders. Do anyone here have the box with them? If not, I think I still have an old Clue board in the back of the wagon. I lost all the pieces, but we could probably just use some rocks instead or something.

"No board, you say?"

The Spirit snaps their fingers, and the floor floats up off the ground. Everyone's clothing and skin turn into a solid colour.

"How about I spice the rules up a bit. The losers souls will be bound to me, forced to play _____ for eternity. The winner may be granted a limited wish. More specifics on that later. LET THE ____ BEGIN!

Of you six, first to claim a colour becomes that colour.

Okay, the colours have been chosen. For reference later:
Red- Coldblooded
Orange- Walrus
Yellow- Credit
Green- InsanityIncarnate
Blue- Drublesnubb
Purple- Palamedes

[Image: 1%20Boulderdash%20Start%20001.png]

Choose a direction of movement (optional) and a direction to place a boulder. Note: If a boulder direction is invalid (Ex. On a Player), it will be placed in a random adjacent direction. This ____ will update in about 24 hours or as soon as all players have submitted their actions (and I am conscious).

RE: [Mini____]Mox's Boulderdash
Either is fine, but just posting would be preferred. Moving will go in order of posting, and so will boulder placing. All of the boulders will then move at once (after the stage rotates{ if it rotates}). The other players aren't going to get any real advantage if you post, but if you'd rather PM, go right ahead.

Suddenly, the grid rotates to the Left. All of the boulders move 1 towards the South, if they can.

NOTE: Credit, placing boulders comes after moving. However, it still worked out for you as you were still adjacent to the square you were placing a boulder in.

[Image: 1%20Boulderdash%20004%20Before.png]

The board doesn't move, and a boulder crushes Coldblooded (Red) to death!

The Spirit clears its throat, making noises even the most ignorant of creatures would acknowledge, and begins some sort of a poem as the people scramble about:

"Players move quickly;
Boulders placed, sudden turn left.
Blue gets squished, four left."
