Brum TwitPic Chain (#brumchain)

This game is based on Flickr Chains (e.g. http://www.flickr.com/groups/thelondonchain/): a chain of photos linked by themes (and probably memes knowing you lot).  To keep it simple, let’s try a chain where we nominate the next person in the chain.

How to play

If you receive an @ message on Twitter tagged #brumchain, then here’s what you need to do

  1. The previous player will have uploaded a photo to TwitPic.  They will have specified what you need to link to e.g. #brumchain Sutton Station B73 6AT, a bench, a digital sign: they have included a bench to link to the prior image, and they want you to upload an image with a digital sign
  2. Take a photo, or choose a photo you already have (it needs to be your own!).  The photo should be clearly taken in Brum!
  3. Upload an image to TwitPic and tag it “brumchain”
  4. @reply a new player in the format #brumchain Where I took my image, previous link, new link

Your done!

If the chain fails, anyone can pick it up again.
You can make your own chain with a new tag.

Have fun
