This is a game from Sandman. You become a thing and the other player(s) have to become something that beats that thing. It's better to start small and keep the game running. There is a more in-depth explanation here (http://www.nairaland.com/556348/game-forms-a.k.a-preludes-nocturnes).

So, I'll begin...

2015-03-09, 06:55 PM
I am Dr. House, who will point out that what you thought was hip displacement was actually a rare blood disorder combined with acute environmental poisoning and the patient always lying. ummm.... makes the nurse uncomfortable with his sarcasm and how he doesn't even bother to hide his leering?

I am your pharmaceuticals plan, part of your insurance coverage. Well, technically I'm managed separately by a third-party as a way to keep your employer's costs down. However, we work together so the consumer experience should be seamless. Your co-pay for those generics will be considerably lower than the brand-name drug if they are in the formulary, resulting in savings to both you and your employer. In order to start saving, let's get you set up with the pharmacy of your choice. Oh, wait. Not that one. They don't accept our plan. I'm sorry, they didn't negotiate effective enough terms with us. You'll have to choose another pharmacy. Yes, that one across town three bus transfers away does accept your plan. You'll need to present your card to the pharmacist or technician to set up your account. No, I'm sorry, that's the wrong card. No, see, that's the medical insurance card. You need to present the pharmaceutical coverage card. Oh, you didn't know they had separate cards? Well, I'm sure we sent you one at the beginning of the coverage year. No, I'm sorry, we can't set it up with the medical insurance card even though they are both through your employer. The plans are technically separate, remember, and all of the ID numbers and codes are different...
