    Back to Front story II

    The original Back to Front story is getting a little repititive, and not many are participating. Also, it is a challenging game, and we want it to make sense too.

    So, I'm starting a new thread with some suggestions:

    * We discuss about a storyline before starting the story, so that it does't get all confused and doesn't go nowhere. But only before the start of a story.

    * The individual posts consist of four words, not three, so that each post contributes more. Or, if you want, five.

    What do you guys think?

    Any more suggestions?

    Yes, I thought that there could be more words per post too, maybe a whole sentence.

    I'm OK with either the whole sentence, or with four or five words. I don't think outlining the story will work because the thing that makes the game fun for most players is the surprise of how we got to the end. The challenge is for each player in his turn to add something to the story that gives it life and interest. I'm looking forward to this run. I think we'll produce something fun to read.

    Cool, then, no outline of story... but whaddaya think, four words, five words, or a whole sentence? Five is ok, I think. If you think it's OK, you can post the beginning... er... the ending of the story. Or you can suggest something else.
