In this game, all participants help keep a story going by each posting a sentence that's either good news or bad news. Participants will take turns on which one they'll write.

For example, one person might say:

Good news: It was a beautiful, sunny day, and the man was having a pleasant walk with his beloved pet poodle.

Then the next person would have something bad happen, like:

Bad news: The poodle stepped in a puddle of radioactive acid, which caused her to morph into a large, menacing poodle with evil superpowers.

Be sure to put before you post whether it's good news or bad news. Be creative--only put a simple sentence if it is really really interesting--and keep with the flow of the ongoing story. xD
