Type: Creativity, Improv
Purpose: Similar to one word story, this is a beginning improv game that helps students create interesting stories by thinking quickly and creatively.
1. Have the players stand in a circle.
2. The goal of the group is to tell a coherent story going around the circle, each player contributing one line at a time.
3. A leader will begin the story with one establishing sentence.
4. Then every line must alternate between “Fortunately…” and “Unfortunately…”.
LEADER: “Once there was a monkey who wanted to be a movie star.”
PLAYER 1: “Unfortunately, she lived in the wild far away from civilization.”
PLAYER 2: “Fortunately, she had a cousin who lived in Los Angeles.”
PLAYER 3: “Unfortunately, she had no money to buy a plane ticket to Los Angeles.”
PLAYER 4: “Fortunately, she was a very fast at swinging through trees so she began her journey to California.”
PLAYER 5: “Unfortunately, her arms go so tired she had to stop and take a nap in a bear cave.”
PLAYER 6: “Fortunately, the bear was out running errands so she had the whole cave to herself.”
PLAYER 7: etc.
