Introduction

In this game all the players on stage will be telling a story. Each player is responsible for the story while the director is pointing at them. When the director switches from one player to another, the other player must pick up the story without stuttering, repeating words, or making grammatical errors. If any of the players makes such an error the audience should yell DIE!!

Description

There is not too much more to add beyond the introduction. The players should tell a story through action, and not waste time having the character thinking about things. The director should change from player to player slowly at first, allowing a sensical story to build. As the game goes on she can switch from one player to another faster and faster.

Gimmicks
