Ta-dah! It’s your move!
My move? How am I supposed to know what comes next?
This is a game for beginners, but a bit more advanced.
Some of the other games I have put up are just regular games designed to be easy to get into and with someone on hand to explain anything to new players.
This one however is less about getting to grips with the mechanics, and more how to navigate some of the tricky things that can come up.
Like, when you just do not know what to post next.
I intended this game to be like a lucid dream - taking a song, some ideas, an image, and just see what it conjures up.
Don’t try to second guess what I want. Have a look, and just ask yourself what story would I write from this (and would I want to?).
And then go for it. What type of character? What era? You decide!
The only wrinkle will be is if we have 2 players with totally different ideas - but that can happen, and we will work through it together.
By all means, reach out to me if you need to - its always good to talk to the narrator if unsure - but don’t worry about failing. If you think you might like this - whatever you think this is! - have a go at a character. At worst, we can have a discussion about some of the challenges when you are not sure what you are expected to write next, and how we can address that as players (and narrators). At best, we will end up with an interesting bit of writing together.
What a Day That Was - a song by David Byrne.
And on the first day,
we had everything we could hold
Ooh - and then we let it fall
And on the second day,
there was nothing else at all
Ooh what a day that was.
There are fifty thousand beggars
Roaming in the streets
They have lost all their possessions
They have nothing left to eat
I'm dreaming of a city
It was my own invention
I put the wheels in motion
A time for big decisions
Down comes a bolt of lightning
Start an electrical storm
Starts a chain reaction
Go pull a fire alarm
(Lemme tell you a story)
Big chief with a golden crown
He's got rings on his fingers
And then he walks up, up to the throne
And if you feel like you're in a whirlpool
You feel like going home
You feel like talking to someone
Who knows the difference between right and wrong
What a day that was.
Poetry is one thing.
But to live it….
