Special Rules

Blog Entries

All Things are Blog Entries, each with a Hit rating. Asterisks next to Hit ratings indicate Link Blog Entries. Add up the Hit ratings of all Entries a Player controls to determine their Hit Count (Hit Counts below zero are considered to be zero).

Endgame

If the discard pile has been shuffled into the draw pile at least once, any Player may use an Action to declare Endgame - during Endgame, each other Player may put one Blog Entry into play, and the Player with the highest Hit Count then wins the game. (If tied, Endgame ends and the game continues.)
