JUNE BINGO: Rules and Stuff

Hello and Welcome to JUNE BINGO!!!!

This post contains all the rules (and stuff.) The actual cards are at this post.

First of all - What do you have to do to shout BINGO, even if it's in the privacy of your own mind? There are several ways to achieve a Bingo:

5x5 Bingo

1 Line - Any line of five connected prompts, this can be vertical, horizontal or either of the diagonals.
Corners - All Four corner prompts on your card.
The Corner Belly Button - All Four Corner prompts of your card AND the free space of your choice.
The Cross - Middle prompts including free space of your choice.
Bingo Blackout - Complete all 25 prompt boxes of your card

3x3 Bingo

1 Square – Complete 1 prompt on your card
Line – Complete 3 prompts on one line of your card
A Corner – Complete 4 prompts in corners of your card
Mini Blackout – Complete all 9 prompts of your card

2x2 Bingo

1 Square – Complete 1 prompt on your card
Doubles – Complete 2 prompts of your card
A Corner – Complete 3 prompts of your card
Mini Blackout – Complete all 4 prompts of your card

If you're not sure about any of this, please ask! This is the place for initial questions, but any Bingo post is fine, or you can email me at tkeylasunset@gmail.com.

What about when I finish my first card?

If you complete ANY of the above bingos you have the opportunity to attempt a different bingo with another card.

- Completed Bingos can be completed/posted all throughout the month until July 1.
- You can post your completed Bingos anywhere: here at the comm, in your own journals, AO3, personal websites - it's entirely up to you. If you post them direct to the community, please use the 'challenge: bingo' tag and a creation tag for your post.
- How you fill a prompt is up to you. There is no right or wrong way to interpret a prompt.
- You can change 1 prompt of your Bingo Card if you are uninspired. This can be any square, and the subject you choose is up to you. Change for any prompt on another card, or choose your own.
- Picture prompts on regular Bingo can be interpreted any way you choose.
-Prompts on the Graphics Only cards can be interpreted in whatever way the muses inspire you.

What constitutes a fill?

Prompt Fills can be completed in several ways:

At least 100 words Per Prompt.
You can include several prompts in your fic, but the combination must still reach the word count minimum, e.g. Incorporate 3 prompts into your fic and it must be 300+ words long. 9 prompts and it must be 900+ words long.
Fics can be connected i.e. several 100 word drabbles of the same theme, or all stand alones.
All types of writing are accepted, from fanfic (any fandom), meta, original, RPF.

Graphics - per prompt:
2 Icons
1 Wallpaper
1 Friends Only/LiveJournal Banner

You can mix and match and fill your bingo with fic and graphics if you want. Even the graphics only cards can be used as written prompts if that’s your choice.

You'll find the cards at this post. Anyone can choose any card, and more than one person can use the same card, although it would be great to see them all in play, so check what others have chosen and aim for something different if you can! If you can't, no big deal.

Comment there to say which Bingo card you're playing, then head off and create - start straight away if you like.

If you complete your first card and wish to play with a second, go for it! Just head back to the card post and comment with the name and number of your new card.

Yay! I love it because it makes me take things in directions I normally might not go. :)

And thanks - I know I will.

part of me wants to do this...part of me is feeling so scattered with other stuff i need to do/should do/want to do I feel I wouldn't be able to give it justice...
So I dunno...I'll hold onto the post and see what happens as the month progresses.

You're welcome to take a card (or 3). If you don't use them, no harm no foul.

I totally understand how you feel about being disjointed. Or as we say in my house... Oh look a chicken!!!

Hope at least one card will speak to your muses!

No, there are no rules about where to post your creations. The best method is to post it wherever you normally post and then make a post to this community with the link to the story/creation. Be sure to use the challenge: bingo tag when you post it to 1_million_words.

If you post to AO3, there is an "additional tag" for 1_million_words so your work will show up in a search for 1_million_words.

If you would like a reward for completing a bingo, the work(s) need to be posted by June 30 at midnight in whatever time zone you reside. Works can be posted after that but no rewards will be provided, excpt applause for a job well done.

Hope this helps! If you have any additional questions, let me know.

How do I start doing the bingo? Can I just start doing it (along with posting the card on my journal?) or do I need to sign up someplace?
Jun. 27th, 2015 03:12 am (UTC)
Jump right in with both feet. All you need to do is pick a card and start creating!! Words, images, both, combinations - it's all good. We don't believe too much in rules in this community. Adding to the count is the point!

Have fun with whatever cards you chose!!! And if you make a bingo by July 1, rewards will be yours to claim!!
