Points and Scoring  
There are multiple ways of making a bingo where each filled square counts as 50 points.

The minimum requirements for a fill are:

Fic - 500 words
Art - medium sized (at least 320x240)
Icons - set of 10
Rec post - 10 recs (any combination of fandoms)
Podfic - 500 word fic
Picspam - 20 pics
Vids - 30 seconds
Mix - 10 songs with track list and explanation included
Meta - 1000 words

*Note: Visual representation of the bingos will be posted as soon as they're finished.

Bingos


Straight line (horizontal, vertical, diagonal) (5 prompts) - 1 prompt per fill, 5 fills, 250 points

*note that the line doesn't have to go through the central square unless it's diagonal.

4 corners (5 prompts) - 1 prompt per fill, 5 fills, 250 points

Parallel Diagonals (2 parallel diagonals; points dependent on which diagonals used) (5 - 9 prompts) - 1 prompt per fill, 5 - 9 fills, 250 - 450 points

*Note that any parallel diagonal lines may be used, except for the corners and you cannot use the two two-square diagonals together to make bingo. At least five squares must be used.

Diamond (8 prompts) - 1 prompt per fill, 8 fills, 400 points

Crosses: X or + (2 diagonals or crossing straight lines through the center) (9 prompts) - 1 prompt per fill, 9 fills, 450 points

*Note that the + does not have to cross in the middle. Any horizontal + vertical line is considered a +

Border (all outside squares) (16 prompts) - 1 prompt per fill, 16 fills, 800 points

Envelope (all outside squares and X through the center) (21 prompts) - 1 prompt per fill, 21 fills, 1050 points

Blackout (all squares) (25 prompts) - 1 prompt per fill, 25 fills, 1250 points(twenty-five stories answering all prompts on the card).

After you've made a bingo, you can make a new bingo on your card or request a new card to complete bingo on. You may also do extras using your original card. Extras are worth a unique number of points.

Extras


Cross-square (parallel squares) (2 prompts) - 2 prompts per fill, 2 fills, 200 points

Postage stamp (2x2 square) (4 prompts) - 4 prompts per fill, 4 fills, 400 points

Straight line (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) (5 prompts) - 5 prompts per fill, 1 fill, 500 points.

*All five prompts in line combined into one story.

Parallel lines (2 straight lines) (10 prompts) - 2 prompts per fill, 5 fills, 600 points

*Parallel lines means writing five stories, each of them covers two adjoining prompts from parallel lines.
