Ok, this game is very simple. It was inspired by a friend of mine who can not find a title for her work. On the other hand on of the first things I come up with is a title. So considering the disjointed way my mind works I put these two concepts together and came up with this game.

The rules are simple:

First player post a title(s) (1-5). These can be working titles from your WIP, made up on the spot or from something you have either published or is resting at the bottom of your desk drawer.

The second player then writes a short intro (1-5 lines) based solely on the given title(s). After that they add their own titles for the next poster to tackle. Please make sure that you write CLAIMED in your reply to avoid double posting (h/t to t0neg0d).

Ruins of Empire

Andi the cyborg is falling apart. Working as a self-repair expert should mean more than finding parts that are going bad but Andi wanted to be human ever since she was a mere cog. 87% is almost enough but not quite when Purborgs rule the world and regulate every pound of flesh.

Andy's day started like any other; his balls in the public eye. Though watched frequently with feverish enthusiasm, none could have possibly suspected they could--and would--bring an empire to its knees. Today, he would discover the full potential of his balls; the power he wielded while hold them in his hand. Today, he would become Andy Chapman, Ballistics Specialist, Mecha Patrol Team B--alls.

Quick intrusion...

1st--GREAT idea! This should be a lot of fun.

2nd--I would suggest posters come in, drop a post in that says: CLAIMED! and then they can take a few minutes to write their response without double/triple posts happening. Once they are finished, click the edit post button and drop their reply in.

3rd--Ralph, you need to add a few titles for the next person to work with... so how about:

Psssst... you forgot to add book titles again ;)

One last suggestion. Reuse the previous titles that you don't use and replace the one you do. That way, there are always five going and makes it easier on the next poster.

i.e. You would repost:

Challenges Overcome

Autumn's Answer

The Baker Street Gang

Misty Mouse and the Opinionated Cheese

And the add another to the list, replacing the one you used.

The Optimistic Pessimist

Laura was positive she would lose. If God had given her nothing else, He had blessed her with the ability to fall short of even her own expectations, and no one would take this away from her--no one. She could win for losing, and tonight, she was intent on proving it.
