Supernatural Coda Bingo is based on the premise for communities like love_bingo or kink_bingo, but with an episode-centric focus.
Have you ever watched an episode of Supernatural, and were suddenly hit by an intense craving for fic/art/recs/icons/vids? Has an episode inspired a specific idea that you would love to see explored? This is the place for it, and here's how it works.
February 26th, 2011: Building the Bingo Cards Posts for each season of Supernatural will become available. Comment with the episode number and title, along with the idea that it inspired. These will be used to create the bingo cards, so the more ideas, the better!
March 25th, 2011: Bingo Sign-Ups A sign-up post will become available. You can volunteer for a bingo card of your choice: all seasons (including Season 6), season-specific (e.g. only prompts from Season 2), or episode-specific (e.g. Season 6, Episode 12, "Like a Virgin"). Sign-Ups are now open!
April 1st, 2011: The First Round Begins Sign-ups close as the clock strikes midnight, PST. The bingo cards will be selected randomly for each participant, and sent their way. If a participant finishes their bingo card early, they may request another one. Participants may start posting their entries as soon as they finish them; since all members have posting access, but not all members will be participating, the entries will be (swiftly) moderated. For submission and posting guidelines, see this post.
April 8th, 2011: Amnesty Begins For those who feel frustrated that they've missed the boat, amnesty will open up participation for everyone! Communal bingo cards will be posted, so that everyone will be able to join in. However, amnesty participants will not be eligible to gain bingo points or receive prizes. After completing their first bingo card, First Round participants may choose to complete an amnesty communal card of their own choice. However, they cannot gain additional bingo points from an amnesty card.
June 24th, 2011: Last Call and Second Round Sign-Ups First Round participants have one more week to complete as much of their cards as they can. A sign-up post for the Second Round will become available.
July 1st, 2011: The Second Round Begins Sign-ups for the Second Round and submissions for the First Round close as the clock strikes midnight, PST.
July 8th, 2011: First Round Winners and Second Round Amnesty Points tallied from the First Round will determine a first, second, and third place winner. Communal bingo cards will be posted, so that everyone will be able to join in.
Hopefully, there will be enough interest and fun going around here to have several rounds of bingo. This will be especially exciting as Season 6 continues and more episodes become available for us to play with!
