Okay, it's a weird concept, but here ya go:
Paper... Scissors... 40k!
The idea is very similar to the old game of Paper, Scissors, Rock, but 1. it's all about 40k and 2. there are special rules.
Basically, the first player sets up a game thread with an appropriate notice in the title (the abbreviation PS40k is enough) and who replies first becomes his opponent. The player who initiates the game must also specify the so-called "mission parameters".
Then both players declare their armies and the scrap begins.
First player picks out a unit (or several units) and lists all the upgrades they have and total cost of each.
Then the second player has to reply with naming out unit (or several units) that can counter the first player's unit. As with the first player the cost must be listed.
Now the first player strikes back, and must find a viable choice against the unit that the second player posted. Players alternate in this way until the winner is declared.
It is also possible that a forum user can post a game thread where he does not play himself. In that case, the first two people who reply become the players, and the sequence in which they play is determined by the first and second post dates (the first poster becomes player one, second - player two).
Apart from the rules up there, there must be specified what type of force organisation chart is used (eg. for which mission type), the points limit, whether the user posts the game he wants to play in or he is just "hosting" it for others to come, and any extra conditions (using deepstrike, infiltrators, Night Fighting etc).
VDR and Tyranid Monstrosities are not allowed.
Now, why the FO and point limit have to be listed?
Well, the first player who breaks the point limit or the boundaries of FO chart loses.
Player must make next action within 72 hours of the exact date of his opponent's last reply or he automatically loses by walkover.
The first player who does not find a viable counter-tactic against his opponent's last "move" loses as well.
Also, it is NOT allowed to edit your previous posts, cause this might mean a cheating attempt, which naturally will not be tolerated. Therefore think twice before you click on "Send Reply" button.
JOLLY GOOD IDEA! In 5th grade I remember we played rock, paper, hand gernade.
