Mundane Events Bingo: the rules of the game! Complete list of mundane prizes, scoring system, and posting guidelines to follow once the prompts have all been gathered and sign ups are open.

1. On the 5x5 grid of prompts from our master list, your mission is to make a bingo through a line, blackout, X, or +.

2. Squares are marked off by filling that square's prompt. Each square requires its own piece of new fanwork to count as a fill.

3. Fanwork formats accepted are fic (minimum 250 words), art, vids (30 second minimum), and meta (minimum 500 words).

4. When you finish your initial bingo, new cards may be requested or extras completed on the existing card. Extras do not count towards a bingo.

5. At least one bingo must be completed on your card before requesting a new one. (However, if on assignment, you find your prompts problematic for any reason, please PM the mods and a new card will be created for you.)

6. New content only, please. No reuse of previously posted material.

7. Squares may be reused to create new bingos or extras, but each reuse requires its own new fanwork.

8. Prompts are open to interpretation. Treat them as guidelines if necessary. The spirit of the prompt, not the letter of the prompt is what matters.

9. Sign ups begin on 5 July, 2010, and this initial challenge is open until 2 January 2011.

I'm looking forward to seeing how you fit some of these prompts into the bingo format.

ETA: Have you thought of promoting at [site community profile] dw_community_promo or [community profile] fandomcalendar?

Do you have any ideas on how mundane events should be handled? Let's say someone gets "beer run" on their card. So, the X-Men's Wolverine goes to get a case of Molson, and runs into Sabertooth! Would them getting into a fight move the story out of mundane territory? Or is it enough that the story starts with a mundane event?

Does the prompt have to be a mundane event for the *characters* involved? Let's say I get "milking a cow" as a prompt, but none of my characters know anything about country life. Would having the character I'm writing about think of the mundane event as strange and new count?

Seconded! If I want to write [livejournal.com profile] isurrendered "fanfic" for an original fic fake TV show that never aired, is that acceptable?

I have a somewhat strange question. I'd like to try to do my entire card as a blackout, all in the same fandom and within the same narrative, with each square getting at least 250 words of attention separate from the others. Do I have to post them all separately, or could I post it as one fic? My current plan is to do it in the format of a "five things...", only instead of five things, thirty days, with twenty-five of the days being about a square and the other five being from other prompts that didn't appear on my card. Each one would get at least 250 words, but since I'm going for a blackout, it would be a pain to have to post them all separately...

Do we have to get a bingo by January 2, or do we have to do at least one square by then (as I've seen in some other challenges) not to default? (I... possibly should've asked this before getting a card, eeeek.)
