As I'm working on my concept for the game (http://tagsessions.blogspot.com/2015/06/game-chef-2015-idea-01.html), I realize my game will have tables that the players can print out to use as a board.  Are the words in the tables/props counted in the 4000 word limit, or is that solely for the rules?

A group of teenagers once signed a release form to join Dream Island, a reality show where each contestant is given one full year to reach for his dreams no matter what they were supposed to be.  But something must have happened outside the island because all the cameras have gone still, and the show may have been abandoned.  The contestants may have been abandoned.  One contestant has been tracking the days and has just informed the others that 400 days have already passed and still no one has come to tell them the show is done.  No one at all.

The players are the Dragonflies.
The audience watching the still ongoing show, which is less about reaching for ones' dreams and more about seeing what a group of teenagers will do when they believe the world around them is gone and they are the only one's left.  Each player can monitor the island using their mobile multi-sensory drone cameras (nicknamed Dragonflies) to observe other contestants and prod them to do things.  Ultimately, each player wants a certain contestant to win.

Because in this reality show, the Audience is far from indifferent.

I'm seeing this as having NO gm.
Each player will choose a contestant they want to win, but during play, can "influence" any contestant to do things (and hopefully, remove that one from the game).  

Think Hunger Games + Big Brother + The Haunting.  Does that reference make sense?

I remember this episode! It's not into the getting her into trouble that Gilian's cowardice rears its head, but in failing to get her out of it. And thus, she is Elked! Thanks for the defense, though, sister.

Still anxious for how people will find my entry.  This is my first time to join and I keep worrying over the littlest things.   I just hope some people like it.

Since they first met 13 months ago on this island, she has been wondering if she can ever find the courage to kiss him. At night, she sometimes dreams she hears a voice whispering to her ear: You can do

Finished my entry, but now getting all the panic attacks of worrying that I didn't format it/approach it properly. :-( Gaaah.  Now tempted to redo it but I know the deadline looms.
