Game of Tomes
Who Will Claim the Iron Tome?
The Game of Tomes
is an event for writers in the Twitch community that runs side-by-side with the National Novel Writing Month events. It is a team-based game in which the players choose a house to represent and redeem their word counts towards their houses over the course of the month. These words must be written and redeemed in Game of Tomes streams on Twitch. This game runs three times a year: in November for Game of Tomes; and in April and July for Game of Tomes: Tourney of Tales
The Game of Tomes is not officially associated with Twitch or National Novel Writing Month. It is a grassroots fan initiative.
