    The ^ < V Game

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Mercurial, Feb 8, 2009.

    The game is simple.

    ^ = What you want to say to the previous poster
    < = What you want to say to/about yourself
    v = What you want to say to the next poster


    It can be questions, a continuation of a conversation, assumptions, whatever; the game is pretty free-flowing. In quotes is how the game generally progressess. (I took this from a forum with this game; this is an actual example. :) )

    So! I'll start us off.



    ^ **INVISIBLE BUDDY!**
    < Procrastinating.
    v What are you looking at? Get back to work! :p
