Welcome weekend writers! Once again it is time for a challenge to put your pens to the test.

This weekend, I’m thinking about games. Not just any games, either. I’m thinking about games with titles that lend themselves to a flash fiction challenge.

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to write a flash fiction story of no more than 500 words using as many game titles as you can in the course of the story. For example, this snippet of dialogue contains three game titles (CAPS).

“BALDERDASH!” he exclaimed. “It’s nothing but TROUBLE. A regular HEADACHE from the start.”

Fling open those closet doors, dust off those trusty board and card games and have fun.
