The way this game works is you create a logline given the subject and genre given.  And then you give a subject and genre for the next logline.

This game is meant to be fun so the more outrageous your logline, the better...

So if the genre/subject was horror/ice cream  my logline might be...

A young boy battles an ice cream vendor when he finds that the vendor's secret ingredient is people.

The next genre/subject is mystery/oranges.  Your turn.

Hi Rookies,

Just a reminder that you are supposed to claim the most recent genre and object given to you. So, in this case, your genre would be a sitcom and your object would be landmines.

Babz, obviously there's something more to it, because I like to follow those rules to a "T" and I've never made it beyond the first round of the MoviePoet logline contest... Lol. Then again, maybe my ideas just kind of suck.

This isn't a discussion of loglines folks, it's a game.  The current genre topic would be

Sitcom/Land Mine

Ah, but where's the fun in that, boss man?

A World War II land mine detector returns home to the family he left behind and has to cope with the idyllic and near-Stepford Wives-ian '50s. Gotta love this post-modern stuff...

Crime Drama/Pamphlet.

Seven strangers end up in a cold, dark place where every living thing around them is slimy, fetid, and hellbent to kill them. Strangers who have nothing in common except their last memory: taking a dump on the same toilet seat in a men's room.
