    So here are the rules, please read them all before playing.

    1. Grabing the tag. To grab a tag go to the location in the picture and take a picture of yourself OCing in that location. Try to as near as possible replicate the original picture, however if that isn't possible any combination of pictures that show you were there and OCing is permissable. The FIRST to post a picture gets to set the next tag.

    2. Set the new tag. Within 36 hours of posting the 'grab' pic a new tag must be set by posting a picture of yourself OCing at a new location. No file pics please. Also all tag locations must meet the following criteria. They must belegal places to OC and not otherwise prohibited to OCers, i.e. subject to any restrictions as to trespassing or violating the property rights of the owners, and the tag must be in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Failure to adhere to these restrictions and tag is immediately available for anybody to set.

    3. The Clue: New tags must be accompianied by a clue to the location. Be creative but remember the goal of the game is to keep the chain going so don't make the location too obscure. GPS coordinates can be used if necessary.

    4. 3 day rule. In order to give folks faraway in the state a chance and to keep the game fresh, if the tag isn't grabbed within 72 hours of posting it expires. At that point anybody can set a new tag with dibs going to the first poster of a new tag site. This new tag will expire in 72 hours or can be grabbed as per rule 1

    5. Spirit of the Game. This game is about showing OCers going about society doing our normal thing. So please no tags in places that could be considered dicey, i.e. don't tag a the local post office or in way thats trying to be in someones face. Also no place dangerous such as the median of a road please. Again, we want to keep the chain going so don't get to far off the beaten path to set a tag. The only reward for playing is kudos for playing a being called a goat if you break the rules or break the chain. So plan your tags accordingly. Final rule, no whining about the rules.

    ETA: Might as well track the tag locations and with the pictures added too.

    ETA 2: Clarification of the rules.


    OK so there is the game, let it begin. First NOVA tag follows now.

    The Clue: If pumpkins are your Krop keep them all in a row so there is not a Great Fall!

    Maybe if your cellphone has a timer you could place it on the roof of your car in the parking lot?

    If there is a cop nearby, ask him to take your picture for you!

    That's funny, I got told that is exactly where I would end up if I carried my gun into a certain county facility last week. I asked if the mugshot camera had a wide angle lens

    Zombie Squad has it right: “We hold fast to the belief that if you are prepared for a scenario where the walking corpses of your family and neighbors are trying to eat you alive, you will be prepared for almost anything.”
