How to play
Take a long sheet of paper and fold it in half and then in half again as many times as the paper will allow.
The first person starts by writing the first line of the story on the first section and then folds it back so the 2nd person can’t see.
Take it in turns to write the next part of the story.
You can follow a structure e.g.
1. An adjective and a man’s name
2. An adjective and a woman’s name
3. Where they met
4. What he said to her
5. What she said to him
6. What happened next
7. What the consequence was
8. What the world said
or make your own story up! Be as funny and creative as you can!
