Each Tuesday the competitors will be announced and voting will open. Every vote a story receives counts as one point.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the competitors will each roll a twenty-sided die. The resulting number of points will be added to their own score. I will update the scores via a comment on the blog post and social media.
Voting closes on Sunday at midnight MST.
Monday the winner (the story with the highest score) will be announced and move on to the next round.
In addition, anyone who votes will be entered to win a book. Details are here.
