Conlang game idea

The recent disappointments with relays that never move on have inspired me
to come up with an idea less prone to timeliness-challenged conlangers.

Basically, it's for two conlangers to carry out a conversation in their
respective conlangs. The first person sends a greeting or something to
that effect, in the conlang, of course, together with the appropriate
lexical/grammatical aids as in the relays. The second person then replies
in his/her own conlang, and the conversation continues this way.

When the conversation is over (say, maybe after 6-8 roundtrips), both
participants post their parts of the conversation in English.
(Alternatively, they could post the *other* person's part in English,
translated as they understand it. That could be more fun. :-P)
