CANDY LAND VS. MONOPOLY "Rules/Instructions"

(NOTE: This is a joke and it isn't suppose to make a lot of sense as an actual game. I created this whole concept for my webseries. At one point the characters end up playing it because they all get really bored. They pretty much make it up on the fly. If you have any ideas on how to improve these rule/instructions please post them in the comments below.)

Monopoly (game board, money, houses, title deeds)
Candy Land (game board, color cards)
Chess (pawns, two kings)
Clue (2 sets of suspect cards, 2 sets of room cards, 2 sets of weapon cards)
Risk (80 army units)
Six-Sided Die

Goals of the Game:
1st - Be the first to hire an assassin to kill the the king/president of your game board.
2nd - Take the place of your game board's former king/president.
3rd - Overwhelm the opposing board with your army.

4 or more players are required to play (You can play with 3 but then it becomes even more pointless then it already is.)
There has to be at least 2 players on each game board. (If your playing with 3 players then at least 1 player has to be on each game board which is pointless.)

Both game boards are placed side by side. Clue cards are used instead of the chance cards and community chest cards. Each player chooses which game board they will be playing on. Then they choose a pawn to represent them.

Players start at the beginning of their respective game boards. Each game board's gameplay matches the gameplay of it's respective game except for a few differences.

Candy Land Gameplay Differences: When you land on a purple square you pick up a Clue card. When you get to the end of the trail you start back at the beginning.

Monopoly Gameplay Differences: When you land on a Chance or Community Chest square you pick up a Clue card.

In order to reach the 1st goal you must collect 1 Suspect Card, 1 Room Card, and 1 Weapon Card. When you've done that that means you've successfully hired an assassin to assassinate the King (Candy Land Game Board) or President (Monopoly Game Board) of your respective board.

In order to reach the 2nd goal you must quickly say "King Me!" or "President Me!" before the other players of your game board. If you do then you take over your game board knocking the other players on your game board out of play. If one of the other players says it before you then they take over the board. After that you replace your pawn with a king (for no reason whatsoever).

After both game boards have been taken over gameplay changes completely.

In order to reach the 3rd goal the final two players take turns rolling the die. Each player places as many Risk army units on the other player's board as the number they roll. The player who places more then 40 units on the other players game board overwhelms the other player's army winning the entire game.

A Season Two Sidestory

This takes place somewhere in between Episode 6 and Episode 7 of Season Two.
Note: It's just a generic classroom.

Episode Four Of The 2nd Season of My Webseries: ROUGH DRAFT

I left out a couple of scenes in this episode. They're really complicated scenes and I want them to be super awesome so I'm gonna take my time with them. I left two notes in the script explaining the basic idea of wants going on during the scenes. There won't be any major plot points in them so you're not gonna be missing anything really important. I'm gonna continue writing the rest of the season and I'll eventually fill in the scenes when I've gotten them all figured out.

A Jeff and Drake Sidestory

I wrote this for my screenwriting class. I liked the main characters a lot so incorporated them into my webseries. The comic book store from the first episode of my webseries makes an appearance in this too. I hope you like reading it... whoever you are. I'm just kidding. I know who you are. You're Ryanne. Hi Ryanne!

(The format's kind weird looking. I'm not sure why.)

Episode Nine Of My Webseries: ROUGH DRAFT

Webseries Episode 9

I'm not too sure about this episode. There's a lot of exposition and the characters just sort of sit there. It also gets kind of serious towards the ends. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Episode Eight Of My Webseries: ROUGH DRAFT

I think I'm gonna call my webseries "Quiet Earth" for some reason.

Webseries Episode 8
This episode is shorter page wise because of the montage.

Episode Seven Of My Webseries: ROUGH DRAFT

For some reason the format went stupid in a few spots after I uploaded it. I tried everything but I couldn't fix it. I'm really sorry. [}(

Episode Five Of My Webseries: ROUGH DRAFT

This episode is kind of a turning point for me (and the series). I feel like I understand both characters equally. I originally didn't see Scullery as a whole person but writing this episode helped me discover her. It's kinda of exciting. Purple monkey dishwasher...

Episode One Of My Webseries: ROUGH DRAFT

Okay, so I decided to create my very own webseries and this is the script for the first episode. It's pretty rough so be as critical as possible. I think I might call it "The WTF-Files".

Andrew Gleason's Untitled Web Series

The characters in the script started out as a joke on Twitter. Sometime last year I created a fictional convention called ARGH-Con. For three whole days I kept tweeting about all the weird stuff that was going at it. There was panel for a MMO based on the old TV show Bonanza, the unveiling of the first electric blanket-moblie, and Free Tacos. (Free Tacos are tacos that run around.) At one point I mentioned there was two FBI agents investigating something at the convention. In the end the entire convention hall was sucked into a black hole leaving a giant crater behind just like in the final episode of Buffy. The two FBI agents survived along with a handful of people. That's pretty much the backstory for the two main characters.
