Re: [Rabbits] Nanofictionary question

Did these people that used resolution as a setting/problem have the card face down?
Did the card they did use as an ending lay face up or face down? (or did they make up their own ending)
I am not sure as far as actual rules, but I think if I were 'in charge' of a nanofictionary game in which that was deemed OK. It would need to be anounced in the beginning that we were going to play with "Resolution Wild" rules..... or something like that.
(personally, I would say resolution needs to be used that way when playing in a classroom and teaching my kids about story telling parts)
But there are stories out there that do not follow the exact outline of story format, I guess.

As I was being a judge in the nanofic finals, I noticed a curiosity.
Several people had used their "Resolution" card in ways that were
unexpected, to me.  Rather than using them to "Resolve" the problem,
they had used them as a "Setting" or even a "Problem".
