    This is a game I used to play with my uncle, we would come up with a super power but created the worst possible weakness or or stipulation to its use. I can't explain this any better than to give an example

    The power of flight

    But only when they are asleep

    so I will start with a power and the next person will give the stipulation and then give the next super power.

    But you lack the support structure and brainpower to compensate for its use, so the second you use it your muscles explode, your bones shatter, your pants get set on fire, and to top it off you will likely run into a wall going at mach 2.
