Board and prompts by lilian_cho. Picture square prompts are from The O.C.

This board is also posted on Dreamwidth. You may play on either site.

The goal of Writing Game is not to make multiple rounds around the board, but to accumulate as many points as possible.

You may switch fandoms/worlds whenever you first pass 20 points, 40, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 105, 110, 115, 120, then free for all.

e.g. Total points: 19. Complete a +3 prompt.

This brings you to 22 points. At this point you may switch fandoms/worlds.

Always go clockwise unless you are going backwards because you skip a prompt.

You can Teleport to a Player's choice square. Tele Point only double the scores (and not the number of squares) of your next three drabbles.

All the general rules can be found in the user profile. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I only have so much time to fiddle with this,

so I've given up trying to make all those extra spaces disappear X_x;;

I've gotten rid of the "br" tags, taken out all the extra spaces/enter...no dice.

Also, these prompts are almost entirely lifted* from a 2012 game ^^;; I am shameless and have no regrets.

Also also, the LJ post scroll bars make no sense whatsoever.

* I changed the few prompts that were actually played.
