Hmmm, well, I suppose it could entail sort of what Kali did in the first debate: Setting the "constraints" for each round; the number of words, the "goals." It could even be exactly the same arrangement as the first game (though it's hard to say exactly where Kali would have gone with it--since we never finished--but that's okay; we can improvise). 'Twould not have to be anything too fancy, necessarily. Just stating what we have to do for each round; stating who is eliminated, etc..

What do you think?

Re: AS' 1st Balloon Debate

ok, by the end of tomorrow I want everyone who's participating to have decided his or her character and post it here.

I'll shoot for no later than saturday to create the thread and begin the game!

So far our competitors include:
argentmoon
Zanahoria_Picante
glubgluby
Jenn and tonic

It would be nice to have more players.

The beginning of next week. This weekend is going to be spent on a marathon writing session, so I should have enough time next week.

Re: AS' 1st Balloon Debate

argentmoon, that sounds like it's going to be interesting. what are you going to be doing with the medical thing?

glub, i figure i'll stick to the same rules as before. 1st par. is 200 words and no more. but i'll post all that crap when i create the thread for it.

so ok then, we'll start next week. i kind of second-guessed myself about doing it over the weekend anyway.

Re: AS' 1st Balloon Debate

it's a camp for kids with medical needs, and they have themed weekends during the school year, and themed weeks during the summer - sickle cell anemia, cancer, autism, cerebral palsy, etc. they also function as a hospital - so if a child is undergoing chemotherapy during their stay, he or she can still receive treatment and stay on camp. it gives them a chance to forget that they're sick, and also meet people their own age that are going through the same experiences as them. i'm volunteering as a den counselor, for credit in my pediatric class. i'm assigned to a family and act as extra supervision/distraction/motivator, aaaaand get to participate in the activities. i do hope the family i'm assigned to picks horseback riding. i've not been in years.
