This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
This is an exercise you can only do once with a group. Use the exercise to
show that making stories is not all that difficult.
Split the group in 2. Half of the players leave the room while you explain
the game to the others: we are going to make stories in pairs. We will tell
the other players that we came up with a great story, and they have to guess
it. The catch is that they can only ask yes/no questions, and we do not really
have a story. We will answer `no` to every question that starts with a vowel
or with a
conjugation of `to be` (or some other criterion). In addition, after
having answered 2 consecutive No`s we will always answer a yes.
Let the other players back in and pair them up with the others. Each couple
starts guessing the story, unknowingly creating a story as they go. Continue
till they get it.
