Just for the fun of it or to get serious results...
It all depends on how you use it.
AS A PARTY GAME
WritersBloxx (TM) pushes people to Think Fast and Write Faster. Players score one point for each of the prompts used and another for each vote of 'Best Story' received from each of the other players.
6 minute rounds focused on six storytelling prompts brings out desperation and incredible creativity simultaneously. The results are sharp, inventive and funny. Comparing stories and the conversations that result make this one of the smartest games you can play.
AS A WRITERS PROMPT TOOL
Used alone or within a group, WritersBloxx inspires and offers writing challenges for authors of all levels and genres.
Groups can set their own time limits for writing and compare their stories created using the very same prompts. It's a great way to discover the possibilities in the way different people think.
Individuals can use the randomized prompts to help them become more creative or break past their personal writing blocks. It's amazing how more challenging combinations lead to more productive writing.
SHOW US YOUR PROMPTS (AND YOUR RESULTS)
After you complete your story, don't just throw it away or hide it in a notebook. Share it with other writers on WritersBloxx.com.
You can post your prompts and what you created with them. Then read what others did with theirs. And then go back and do it all over again. Differently, because no two rounds will be the same.
Is WritersBloxx (TM) available now?
WritersBloxx is in its crowd-sourcing phase. You go to Kickstarter.com, pledge support and receive their copy shortly after the fundraising period has ended. You are pre-ordering it before production. Your support this way attracts others.
I can't just get a copy now?
People who to go to Kickstarter and make a pledge will get the earliest copies. In this way, we can raise the funds to produce the game and gain awareness. There's no risk to you. If we don't raise the funds to produce the game, you don't pay. Our goals are reasonable so we should easily make it. And if we reach our stretch goals, we will be adding bonuses to the game!

Well, two out of three ain't bad.
WHAT IS WRITERSBLOXX ?
WritersBloxx (TM) is a story-telling game and tool. Using six twenty-sided dice, the PromptMaster generates random story elements in six categories: genre, event, timing, object, location and character. Participants use these to create a story, sometimes within a very short time limit.
The fun and the challenge: the prompts rarely go together easily. How would YOU combine noir (genre), yacht launch (event), Abe Lincoln (character), San Francisco (location), knife (object) and 1950s (timing)?
Don't focus too much effort on it, though. Each PromptGrid is capable of generating over 60 million different combinations. That practically guarantees that every game is different and you'll never get that combination again. Including this one.
Roll the dice for yourself and see what YOU get.

We are using Kickstarter to bring WritersBloxx to you and the rest of the world of game players and writers. Your support will get you one of the first copies in the version of WritersBloxx you want, and it will also help us bring it to others.
The Kickstarter campaign starts on June 23 through July 30. Early support is important as it shows others that it is worth supporting and attracts more interest. If we reach our stretch goals, we are adding bonuses to the game that you will get that without any additional charge.
