Drabble Rules: The One Hundred Word Variant
Drabble is played sitting around a fire, while sipping brandy and partaking of pleasant conversation with friends. The first person to finish a novel wins.
A Doubtful History
The first game of Drabble, a name coined in a ‘Monty Python’ sketch, was played at the beginning of the last century. The winner was Mary Shelley with ‘Frankenstein’ and Polidori, who didn’t actually finish during that stormy weekend, came second with ‘The Vampyre.’
‘One hundred words’ must be EXACTLY one hundred words: not a syllable more, not a letter less. In addition, up to fifteen words (title, sub-titles and the like) are allowed. Hyphenated-words-are-argued-about.
