What if...something writers are always asking.

Easy Forum game that just asks what if?

What if pigs could fly?
What if every story was a winner?
What if earthworms ruled the earth?

Doesn't matter.

Answer the 'what if' of the post above, and then pose your own.

What could be better for creative brains?

I'll start....

I love this. I always tried to play this game with my mother and she'd lose after two.

What if books replaced computers?

In an alternate reality where books are the highest technology and computers collect dust in old libraries...

Paw patrol is a show, but I have a themed mug.

What if aliens existed, would they ruin our dinner plates, or would they listen to Blink-182?

They certainly would not listen to blink 182, and they have been known not to tidy up, but ruin? not likely.

What if food replicators existed, but only made tofu?

"Get your food replicator here! As much tofu as you can eat," the street vendor cried, as passersby ignored him and hurried away.

Dueling would be less spectacular, to say the least, but are they less mighty? I think the jury is still out which actually gains one the most power.

Only untold adventures await. You will fight dragons, rescue princesses, fight a dark lord, and visit far away places.

Or you might get a ticket cause you dont know where the speeding camera's are.
