This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
A great Pimping
game. 4 players. First player gets from the audience
a silly little problem, like My Shoelaces are Untied, and a simple object, say
a kitchen cabinet.
First player starts a scene in which the Problem arises, and his character
is unable to fix the problem. Hence she calls in (explictly) the help of e.g.
Kitchen Cabinet Woman. This is a Super Hero, like Superman, Wonder Woman, you
know that kind of cartoon-character heroe types.
Super Hero comes in with
lots of brou-haha (high Status ) only to make the problem worse (and a status
switch to low status). So our hero calls in the help of yet another Super Hero.
Use whatever you can think of first. Say Toothpaste Man. Again this hero
comes in high status, screws up even more, does a status switch and calls in
yet another hero, who finally fixes the problem.
The game is really pimping folks into playing outrageous superheroes. The
status switch from high to low after screwing up is pretty important too here.
See also Mr. So and So for another Pimping game.
We originally listed this game as "Supermen" - obviously women can be as heroic as men so we changed the name to more neutral "Heroes".
