Each post, that poster does something to the pile mentioned in the previous post (typically add or remove an item, but creativity and interactions are encouraged!). Then, they say the state of the pile after that action. For example:

I add a cent.

The pile now contains a penny and a cent.

[To check - each post, that poster adds or removes one thing from the pile, right?]

Pretty much, although I don't recall the precise rules. I think it was roughly limited to one thing, but got more creative at times.
