The story goes off the rails when Creator/RobertEHoward does what he does best and Frank Belknap Long wraps it up in a hilarious sort of way.[[spoiler:The main character's body turns into a werebeast and drowns in a lake while his mind takes over his new body and rules the worm's empire as a benevolent dictator.]]

* There is a type of Round Robin used in the 18th century novella LittleWomen, where ''most'' of the characters take 'turns' to tell a long story during a garden party to 'entertain' themselves...
* ''Literature/BlackTrillium'' was written by AndreNorton, MarionZimmerBradley and Julian May in this fashion: each of them wrote chapters about her respective heroine ([[LadyOfWar Kadya]], [[BadassBookworm Haramis]], and [[PrincessClassic Anigel]], accordingly), which were then compiled and edited into a single novel. However, the collaboration proved so stressful for all of them that they continued writing in the same universe independently, effectively creating three different continuities after ''BT''.

* As mentioned above, ''Series/SupermarketSweep'' had the Round Robin game, where each member of a team (three pairs of two) would alternate solving product name anagrams, getting more sweep time- and right after that came the Big Sweep, so it could be important in how much time a team got for that.
* And its' sparring partner on Lifetime and Pax, ''Series/ShopTilYouDrop'', had a similar round called the "Shopper's Challenge", where the two teams would swap positions and answer rapid-fire questions- whichever team got the most points by the end of the round would move on to the [[BonusRound Shop Til They Drop]] round. Notably, this was one of the few elements kept intact when the show was heavily revamped in 2003 (and not for the better).

* The properly named ''Round Robin Parody'' is basically a CrossOver comical fanfic featuring ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', and oddly enough, ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', a ''furry'' comic. It was written in a Star Trek group in Usenet before the World Wide Web era at the beginning of the 90s, and very few copies of that fic exist in the net, mostly the final episode. Basically, the whole story is about the crew of the both generations trying to kill each other, while the cast of ''Albedo'' joins the fray, ending with the ILR (the common enemy force from ''Albedo'') invading ''Atlantic City'' with the help of Picard.

* ''The39Clues'' was written by a different author each book, beginning with Creator/RickRiordan and ending with Margaret Peterson Haddix. The sequel series continued the trend.

* [[http://www.snopes.com/college/homework/writing.asp A piece of occasionally-resurfacing Internet lore]] concerns an English teacher who paired her students and told them to write a story in this format. Unfortunately, one such pair turned out to consist of a borderline GranolaGirl alongside an insecure ManChild. The story alternates between a MarySue ({{Wangsty}} PurpleProse about relationships) and a MartyStu (adolescent SpaceMarine power fantasy).

* The DoctorWho fanfic community has had a number of Round Robins spawned from the ''ThisTimeRound'' MetaFic setting, including several Pro-Fun Hoedowns (in which {{Author Avatar}}s and DW characters get together for a party, only for Complications To Occur) and ''Dark Carnival'' (in which a CircusOfFear arrives in Nameless). Sadly, both ''Dark Carnival'' and the most recent Hoedown are currently {{Dead Fic}}s.
