This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
This is best played with an odd number of players. Everyone in a circle. The
first player gives a gibberish word to her right neighbor, who translates the
word. The next player provides the next gibberish word, and so on.
The receiver can provide
both the translation, and a new gibberish word.
You may want to add the origin of the language along with the translation.
Any gibberish word might be translated as `banana` of course, but that is
not the idea of the exercise. For your translation, use the first thing that
comes to mind. You may be inspired by the whole sound of the word (it might
sound like something `known`), or parts of the word (only the vowels, or only
the consonants), or by the intonation of the `giver`, or even by her expression
or body language.
Try gibberish in different `languages` or `accents`.
Also known as Gibberish Dictionary.
