This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
This is like Word at a Time Expert
, but with a bit more scene work. 2 players, speaking one word at
a time, alternating between the players. The scene is starting by stating who they are, or where they are.
Example: "We-are-on-a-sunny-beach". The players then actually play that, and build a story, word at a time,
and actually playing the story at the same time.
For example: "We-see-a-dead-whale"; the players
should actually see the whale, and do something with it.
There is no need to `say` everything before doing it ( use our motto: Play it, don`t say it).
Players have an adventure together; the story needs to happen to both of them, they are not to play
against each other.
As many players tend to verbosity, use a director that `cuts` the scene and tells the players what to do.
Example: "Give the whale mouth-to-mouth".
Allow a third character to enter the scene, playing against the two others. Now the lines are done word per
word, by 3 players, but we have 2 characters. This gets extremely silly/messy - to create some order out
of this chaos make sure the third player (i.e. the second character) has a different voice (different accent
or pitch). Unlikely to produce interesting stories, but quite hilarious.
