I was thinking about sports on other planets this evening and wondering if I could come up with some writing prompts. In honour of the X-Games happening in Aspen, here are some sports related writing prompts:
1. Imagine a world where genetic manipulation is the norm. What would extreme sports look like? What kinds of tests would be conducted on the athletes?
2. What would basketball look like in zero gravity? Describe a game. What would kickboxing look like?
3. What would spaceship racing include? What would be the challenges?
4. Imagine the Olympics on Mars. What accommodations would have to be made? What new events could be added?
5. Imagine a fast action sport that included devices that could manipulate the quantum field and alter game play. Describe such a game and how it would be won or lost.
Have fun with these prompts!
