|Earl the Squirrel's Rule #28|
Some TGs will have a compulsory: a piece every participant must perform that is short enough (i.e. sonnet length at most, 75 seconds or less) and has sufficient performance value to avoid boring an audience hearing it so many times in succession. These allow for an apples-to-apples comparison of presentation skills.
|Earl the Squirrel's Rule #79|
Ideally, TGs will bring out people who would never go to performance events, thus creating a far more balanced, eclectic presentation than the typical unmodulated slam or poetry reading. Given the crowd and location, one is likely to encounter almost anything at Thirst Games.
