Difference (from prior major revision) (no other diffs)

Changed: 3c3
Each round, each of the players writes an entry on a subject beginning with that letter of the alphabet, which must cite three other entries, one already written, and two not yet written. Citing an unwritten entry creates a phantom entry. In the first round, you don't have to cite a previously written entry, obviously.

You can cite a phantom entry that's already been cited before by another player, or yourself, however.

Changed: 5c5,7
There may not be more entries per letter, phantom or otherwise, than the number of players. So you can't cite a new unwritten entry if there have already been a number of citations equal to the number of players for that letter. In addition, when starting a letter, all the phantom entries must be written before any new entries for that letter can be created. You can cite a phantom entry that's already been cited before, however.
After a round starts, a player may call dibs on a single phantom entry. This means that no other player may write that phantom entry, although obviously the player who called dibs should be considered to be under serious obligations to write it before the round is over.

There may not be more entries per letter, phantom or otherwise, than the number of players. So you can't cite a new unwritten entry if there have already been a number of phantom entries cited in that letter equal to the number of players. In addition, when starting a letter, all the phantom entries must be either written or dibbed before any new entries for that letter can be created. If a player has cited all the currently existing phantom entries for this letter, they may create a new entry, as they can't write any of those phantom entries.

Changed: 13c15
You can cite extra previously written entries, or phantom entries, if you really want and they're relevant to the subject at hand, but don't create more than two new phantom entries with any given entry.
