GENRE JUMP

Author Unknown


Two players are chosen from the audience and given a task to complete. The only hitch is that two people (the host of the game and a chosen partner) will sit off-stage and be the moderators. At any time during the game either of the two moderators will call out a genre (a

theme or type of story). The two players must immediately continue the scene in the style of the called genre. Suggestions: Western, soap opera, children's show, Amish-Erotica, cop drama, Shakespearean rap, etc.


A variation of this game is for the moderator to use an occupation rather than a genre. The players must then continue the game endowed with the suggested occupation.
