Community description:Pan-fandom bingo community based on common tropes.
Tropes are devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members' minds and expectations. On the whole, tropes are not clichés. The word clichéd means "stereotyped and trite." In other words, dull and uninteresting. We are not looking for dull and uninteresting entries. We are here to recognize tropes and play with them, not to make fun of them. (via fanlore)

A pan-fandom bingo community that uses common and well-known fandom tropes as squares. Modeled after the original [community profile] kink_bingo, our goal is to inspire fanworkers to reexamine and reinterpret old ideas and plotlines in new and unconventional ways.

How to play (or check out the more complete version:

  1. Request a card from the card signup post.

  2. Look at the card and figure out which tropes you might be interested in. To fill a square, you should make some kind of fanwork or original work that focuses on that trope.

  3. Your first goal is to fill in enough squares to make bingos (straight lines on the card, an X or + pattern on the card, or a blackout of every square on the card). You must make a bingo of some kind if you want to win the round. If you make a bingo and post it during the round, congratulations, you've won at Trope Bingo!

  4. Post to the comm with links to your works. When you post bingos and extras to the comm, you'll win cool banners and become eligible for other prizes.

  5. After the main round is over, Amnesty begins. During Amnesty you no longer have to post full bingos – you can post any number of fanworks or original works you like, whether or not they make bingos or extras.

  6. If you take a card in round one, you must post at least one fanwork or original work before the beginning of round two if you want to request a new card for round two.
