I keep trying to submit our new rules for nanofictionary, but it's not going through.
Is there someone who can get get them submitted for me??  THANKS!
here's the submission-
new game name:  "Roll 'Em"
Description/Instructions: I am a teacher. I made this version for a simple, quick-play during class time. This can be used for a fun, fast game with younger players (or any player who enjoys NANOfictionary, but wants a quick game)

Have cards in separate stacks. (character-C, problems-P, settings-S,

resolution-R, actions-A).  Choose one stack for your base stack (either P, S or R). Have a way to label the piles. I used NANOBLANKS.  I place a blank under the pile with the TOP sticking out, so the category can be read)


The base stack (lets say it is S- setting) is in the middle of the table.

Flip over the top card. Have a discard pile off to the side. Think up a fun

Name for the discard pile; like the cutting floor


Go around the table in turn, rolling 1 dice.


If you roll a 1-2 draw a character card


If You roll a 3- draw a P


If you roll a 4- draw a R


If you roll a 5-6-draw an action cards


(if you have P or R as your base, just substitute as needed)


You may want to have the rolls written on an index card on the table for all to

see as a reminder.)


When a person gets 2-3 C, 1 P, 1R they have to make a short story using the S

that if flipped over on the table. Everyone's story uses the same S (or the

same base card that is flipped). If you draw more than what you need of one

type, put it in the discard pile. I had to put a limit on things. My kids like to have 8-12 of almost everything and then try to make as story and get confused and it ends up a big disaster.


The 1st person done gets 3 points, 2nd person gets 2 points, 3rd person done gets 1 point.


Play a specified set of rounds (suggested 3-5). At the end, tally the points.


Hand out place cards or have little prizes for 1st , 2nd , 3rd


Have students choose a story to write out or draw pictures of. My students with dyslexia (and not up to writing out their entire story) make a Comic Strip story format. Sometimes I have them write a bio background for one of their charaters or a detailed description of the setting.
