as entertainment and as an artistic effort, but there's a separate
wiki dedicated to this already -- http://games.wikicities.com/
I feel that our own gaming related efforts should be limited at best.
I'm surprised that the Sandbox is "VfD resistant" in the first place -
I would have thought anything sandbox-related would be deliberately
ephemeral and of no lasting value, and hence eminently deleteable. The
template on there even says that Sandbox contents are wiped every 12
hours, wouldn't this apply to Sandbox subpages too?

What an easy solution might be would to have a wipe every 12 hours of
the sandbox main page that also deletes any subpages (except any used
for offical uses regarding the sandbox).
