The penultimate not numbered Speed IF

Another good year for IF draws to a close. So it's time for another New Year's Speed!

The motivation behind it is to offer people a chance at writing a small work of IF at the end of the year. Traditionally, the rules have been very loosely defined. However, as people have complained about this lack in direction, I'm offering two variants:

1) Write whatever game you like, in any system you like, starting now. Games should be submitted by December 31st.

2) If you want to take the classical Speed IF route, take two hours, or however much you like, and use one/all/none of the items mentioned on this list:

- your mum's shoes
- Italians
-a tanning bed
- a copy of Doom III
-the color chatreuse
-Tiny Tim (preferably as a foe)
-the smell of your evil twin
- an e-peen hammer (whatever that may be)
- A shirt which says "I killed my father and all I got was this lousy t-shirt"

Any approach that lies between the two is also okay.

If you're thinking "So am I allowed to..." the answer is yes.

New Year's Speed games have been played on Clubfloyd traditionally, but I haven't spoken to Jacq yet. So, no promises. (They were. Thanks, Jacq!)

A last thing: Please take note of the Hugo Open House competition, with which we coexist peacefully. I for one am trying to enter both.

Thank you and , most importantly, have fun!
