3-word collaborative story

I'm going to try making a game. We can all write a story together! It's based on the games already here but with a few rules to make it easy to read and to make sure it's a very collaborative process.

Each person contributes 3 words to the story. Please don't take multiple turns at one time, but feel free to respond as often as you like as long as there is a post at the bottom other than yours. If two people reply at the same time, whoever manages to get the post through first wins.

To keep it easy to read, instead of just replying with 3 words, please copy and paste the previous poster's text and add three words to the end of it. Example:

Person 1: There was a ...
Person 2: There was a secret dungeon in ...
Person 3: There was a secret dungeon in the king's bedroom ...

This way we can look at the last page and see the full story so far. New paragraphs can be started and punctuation added at the end for free.

Now let's begin:
In the future ...

Re: 3-word collaborative story

Isn't this the same as the thread called The "3 Word Story" game ?

It's the same, except yours calls for copying and pasting the preceding posts instead of just replying with 3 new words. I agree that it would definitely make it easier to read, easier to follow along, etc... otherwise the gist or the plot of the story gets lost in the back pages.

I'm for it

Yep, sorry, when I said I was going to try making a new game, I didn't mean it was going to be original, just that I wanted to attempt a new thread! I just took that existing game and added some rules because I found such things hard to follow, especially when they get to over a hundred pages of posts. I should have said *starting* a game, as that would have been more precise; I'm used to playing internet online games where people often refer to that casually as 'making' a game or 'hosting' a game. Sorry about my bad English.
