    Crazy improv stories.

    Participants will make a circle and say only ONE word by turn rotating clockwise.

    They have to make a story. They can say any word that makes sense into the sentence or "period" to end the sentence and lead to beginning a new one.

    The game has to flow fast: no time to think!

    * Tip: use your own names in the story to make it even more fun! Be creative! Nonsense = Fun!

    * Example: One-day-mom-was-feeding-Toby-in-the-cave-"period"-A-bear-smelled-the-food-but...
