Starting Date: Friday, January 10, 2014
Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

This month's prompt:
Retro Gaming Icons

Whatever your definition of retro, gaming, or icons, now is the time to get your classic game on. Super Mario, Shigeru Miyamoto, the Atari 2600, Tim Schafer, Baldur's Gate...any game or gaming-related icon is up for grabs! Or, if you like, invent your own! Entries may be of any genre so long as they are 1000 words or less.

Instructions:
Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn. Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete a blog post using the prompt. When you are finished, please add a link to your post on the thread.

If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you! Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post.

Both of you are added to the list :)

I'm in. And sorry for dropping off the last time like I did. December was shaky to say the least.
I can't blame anyone for not being around for December when I was barely here myself! A shaky month all around, it seems.

Due to the lack of participants, I am pushing back the start date to Friday, January 10.

I'm participating!--I just can't post until the 18th or so, which was why I planned on lurking until more people signed up (and thus bumping me farther down the list)
I'll add you with a special note, as is my wont :)

Excellent! Everyone through AndreF is added, and we now have enough participants for a viable chain! I was worried there for a bit :)

Here it is, enjoy!

Dude I loved your post. You make me want to play some older titles.

Then I read your Mass Effect entries ... *sniff* beautiful. You're making me want to play the entire Mass Effect Trilogy again.

meowzbark gets to make a racket next. And since the list is a bit thin this month, I'm going to be extra generous with the extra time :D

I'm just making sure I understand this. Am I to talk about a classic game or write a scene that takes place in said classic game?

Either or neither. You are to take the prompt and do with it whatever strikes your fancy.

I am going to give meowzbark until tomorrow before reluctant bumping occurs.
