(x-posted with Story Games)

Hey everyone!

So I wanna run a challenge!

This is one centers around.....

(drumroll)

ART! Specifically, old art that has been posted at the ever-wonderful BibliOdyssey

There is an official contest blog, and the rules can be found on it, here. They are also reproduced at the linked post on Story Games. The quick summary is that everyone assembles a set of 10 images from at least two different BibliOdyssey posts, and posts them as a set to the contest blog. Then, these image sets are randomly redistributed, and you have two weeks to write a game that is inspired by and incorporates those images. Finally, there is a round of peer review and scoring, and the winningist game in each of three categories gets bragging rights and dedicated playtest time from me (and probably, some of the Storygame Boston crew).

Questions and comments? This thread, the Story Games thread, and the comments on that blog page are all kosher.

So, get crackin! Image sets/declarations of entry are due by whenever I wake up next Saturday morning (2/10/07).
