This directory contains collections of works produced by various smaller events -- competitions, games jams, workshops, etc -- that don't have a dedicated place elsewhere on the IF Archive.

The older events were often run via the Usenet group rec.arts.int-fiction.

# sillygame.zip

three .html files which contain suggestions from
rec.arts.int-fiction to Cardinal Teulbach's requests for
characters, locations, and objects which he planned on putting
into one big, silly game. The Cardinal then decided he was too
busy for the project, so it was handed off to a committee,
which got a little done on it, but it died again.
Written up and submitted as a source of ideas for the
mini-competition by Julian Arnold.
