5-4-3-2-1 can be played with 4 to 12 players. In this format the audience provides 5 different themes, objects, emotions, locations or situations. Then, the game is played in 5 rounds.
In the first round 5 scenes are played, each based on one of the audience suggestions. These scenes are totally unrelated. After the first round the audience decides which of the 5 scenes seen should be discontinued.
In the second round, the 4 remaining scenes are continued, and links start to appear between these scenes. Again, after this, the audience decides which scene to dump.
This continues until after 4 rounds there are only 2 scenes left. In the fifth round these scenes come together in one final scene.
This format can be played with or without props and/or director(s).
This can also be played without dropping a scene line. In that case you`d probably use 3
rather than 5 scenes.
