I didn't see this anywhere, so I decided to start this game! This is based on a Facebook post that got pretty popular.

The rules: Each poster picks a superpower. The next poster decides under what conditions they can use or have this superpower, the idea being to make it inconvenient, funny or both.

Example:

Troper A: Invisibility!
Troper B: Only when nobody's looking. Pyrokinesis!
Troper C: Only in hot weather. Teleportation!
Troper D: The location is always random. (Etc)

I'll start things off with ...

Talking to animals!
