I know that people were craving a fate-style game in my politics game and it didn't happen so here is a different that I think will fit much better with that type of game.

The scenario:
6 people have been selected by a company for the opportunity to take a job that they would all do anything for(I don't specify the job, it isn't important).
They will be placed in a small room where they are tested for this job.
I will reveal the details during the actual game.

How to play:
This is a game with very loose rules. I lay out the scenario. You say what you do. I tell you the consequences. That is all.

I need six players who will be active.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

By trying to make it a meme, you've doomed it from ever becoming a real meme.

THE GAME BEGINS

[All six of you enter through a white hallway which leads to a small metallic room with 6 desks and chairs with letters on them(positioned left to right to back in alphabetical order) that correspond to each contestant (BlackVoid=A, Andro=B, Thad=C, Badger=D, ChristianM=E, freedom=F). Each chair has a piece of paper on it that is facing down and a pencil next to it. A guard is standing at attention next to the door and a tall man in a suit is waiting in the room in front of all the desks. The man says, in his deep voice,
"Welcome, I am Number Five, please sit at your assigned seats. You have been selected for a rare privilege of competing for a very high value job in our company. This is where you will be tested. We will be watching from behind this glass wall. Now, listen to everything I say very closely. There are only two things you must do to obtain the job. You must have the answer to your question submitted when the clock runs out and you must not break any of the rules. If you break any of the rules you will be thrown out of the room. Other than the rules I put forth, there is no law in this room.
Here are the rules.
1. You may not leave the room for any purpose until you have been dismissed.
2. You may not defile your paper.
3. You may not attempt to communicate with myself or the guard until the clock as reached it's end.
Does anyone have any questions?"

[A few second of silence]

"Then I shall begin the clock."

[Man starts clock. It shows 30:00. Man leaves the room. Everyone sits still for a moment and the turns over their papers. When you look at the papers, you see, "Question 1:" and nothing else.]

Begin playing.

I can't use my pencil on the paper (that would "defile" it), so I'll have to write on the desk instead. Not now, though. Right now I'm going to hold my paper up to a light, to see if it has a watermark.

I always objected to that part of the film. Writing on the paper isn't defiling it, if the answer is correct (and considering they were being super-literal - they can't justifiably describe it as defiling the paper). Especially considering the stated goals of the CEO.
I would have hoped you would have had more sense. Oh well.

Obviously the person who wrote why they should get the job was not answering correctly, but I was.
