''In the early 1990s, a brand new television show premiered. Unicode Gamma was a great foray into the television market, and was sent internationally on a brave mission to earn it's creators money. Alas, Unicode Gamma was a television show of its time, a show with no real attempt to connect to a general audience, and thus, lasted only a season. That didn't deter the fans (as it never does), and a thriving community of Unicode Gamma fans continue to watch and enjoy this real slice of early 90s television.''

''5 Year ago, a group of fans managed to organise [Gammacon|Unicode Gamma Lexicon], a conventions dedicated to all things Unicode Gamma. Sadly, on day two of the event, fighting between the fans wrecked the event, the hotel the event was hosted at, and any chance of respectability the fandom might have been able to eke out. On the plus side, the fire did put Unicode Gamma in the news for the first time in ages, and this is bringing a lot of new fans to the show! There's even some talk of a brand new reboot!''

''And so now, with renewed vigor, Gammacon 2 (under new management) has reared it's head once more, and a new group of fans get to reminisce about the new direction their beloved show is now taking.''

This game uses standard [Lexicon Rules] with the following [variations|Lexicon Variations]:
* '''Phonepad turns''' - In this variant, each turn contains 3-4 letters, in a configuration matching that of a mobile phone pad. The structure of this is ABC, DEF, GHI, JKL, MNO, PQRS, TUV, WXYZ, for a total of 8 turns until end.
* '''Unbound format''' - Entries written do not have to be encyclopedia-style - they can be any style that the writer desires. Standard referencing still apply, the entries need to be at least 100 words, and they must have some sort of information inside them.
* '''Deadlines''' - Entries need to be entered in by the Friday of each week. You have the weekend as a grace period, but if the entries are not entered in by Monday Morning, you may not be eligible for the next round.
* '''No Relation''' - While this Lexicon has been run previously, this is an entirely new Lexicon, and no connection is assumed with the previous Lexicon. Players are, however, welcome to view the corpse of the previous Lexicon for inspiration if they wish.

This game is currently accepting players. If you wish to play, simply place your name down at the end of this list. The deadline for Turn 1 is the 29/08/2014. If you have placed your name on the list, and have not written your first entry by that date, you will not be considered a player, and your name will be struck off the record.

The People playing this game are:
* [Lee], bringing to life Kip Kirby, cantankerous webmaster of Gamma Waves, the longest running Unicode Gamma site on the web, and one of the few survivors of Gammacon 1.
