(Because this journal style's background is not white, the board looks ugly on LJ. Will tinker with it later.)
This game is also posted on Dreamwidth. You may play on either site.
Post Secrets is not playable.

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.
Stick to the colored path you're on, going left-to-right or right-to-left.
You may not change paths midway, except if you are at a Player’s Choice Square.
You may not change directions midway, except if:
1) You are going backwards because you skip a prompt.
2) You are at a Player’s Choice Square.
When you reach the other side, reverse direction onto a different colored path.
e.g. You started the game left to right from Z square and reached T square (green). You may start a new path right to left from F (blue), G (orange) or U (red).
You have to answer the door challenge each time it's in your path.
e.g. Prompt: Viable +3
You answered V square and earned three points. Even though Door 2 is only two moves ahead you still need to answer the door challenge.
After fulfilling the challenge, award yourself four points and go forward onto a different colored path (F - blue, T - green, or U - red). Start on the first letter square instead of the fourth letter square.
All the general rules can be found in the profile.
