HOW TO PLAY

1. Request a bingo card on the sign-up post.

2. Review the card and figure out which bingo line you'd like to fill. To fill a square, please follow the guidelines posted HERE.

3. Your first goal is to fill in enough squares to make bingos (straight lines on the card, horizontal, diagonal, vertical, or a blackout of every square on the card). You must make a bingo of some kind if you want to win the round. If you make a bingo and post it during the round, congratulations! You win!

4. Post your completed bingo to the community following the posting guidelines.

5. After the main round is over, amnesty begins. During amnesty, you no longer have to post full bingos. You can post any number of completed fanworks you have created for the bingo challenge if you still want to share them.

Posting Guidelines

1. All fanworks must be newly created for this challenge. While we have no way of knowing if you’ve posted your work before, this community runs on the honor policy.

2. Please use appropriate rating methods.

3. Please remember to tag your posts appropriately. Necessary tags are round #, what type of bingo you got, and "completed bingo." We highly recommend tagging which prompts you used to create your bingo. It lets creators see how others interpreted the prompt, as well as allows consumers find all the fanworks for prompts that appeal to them.

4. All bingo creations should be posted to ONE post directly to the community OR with the links to your completed works.

Prompt List

Here are your word prompts for Buffyverse Bingo. Twenty-four words will be randomly placed on a bingo card via the bingo card generator. This list is for your reference to give you an idea of what words might appear on your bingo card. As always, the prompts are open to your interpretation and can be used as a starting point for your fanwork.

Please Note: If you end up with a particular character you hate or an episode of Angel and you've never watched the show, you have veto power to exclude it off your card.

Example: You get Riley on your card, you can tell the mods that you'd like to veto Riley and will replace that prompt with something different.
