Here's one idea on how to score in Fantasy Bishball:
Blog post/diocesan paper article/published homily = 1 point
Interview (tv or print)/public appearance (i.e. prayer vigil in front of abortuary; guest speaker at a conference) = 3 points
Ex-communication/El Smackdown (i.e. refusing to offer Holy Communion to pro-abort politician) = 5 points
Anything associated with USCCB = 0 points. (hah!)
In order to get credit for the points, participants have to publish a post that includes a link to the source. You can do this on a daily basis, or publish a weekly post that has all the links (which is how I'm going to do it). We'll do this via the Honor System, but anyone's free to challenge another player (charitably of course) - but I don't want to get overly anal about this. Let's just make this fun.
Also - only the original source counts. For instance, if Cardinal Burke gives a speech at a pro-life conference, and 25 bloggers link to that speech, you don't get 75 points. You would only get 3 points for the speech itself, and not the additional links. I think that makes sense.
Any thoughts, ideas, recommendations, suggestions?
