Speed IF 7


On 2 December 1999, I had the privilege of running the 7th "Speed IF" competition. The basic format of the event is simply to give the participants a premise and two hours to create a game inspired by that premise.

If you're interested in participating, you need to be a member of ifMUD. It's easy (and free!) to join, and you'll get an opportunity to meet quite a number of interesting people.

For Speed IF 7, the premise was:

You're a stowaway on an oil tanker in the North Atlantic. Questions to consider: why are you there? Are you trying to stop a dastardly plot? Are you trying to start one? How did you get on board? Who's the pretty birdie then? (just kidding) Bonus objects: a lump of clay, a cheerleader's pompom, a photograph of the loch ness monster, a bottle of Dr Pepper, and tomorrow's newspaper today.


The following games have been submitted for your consideration:
