Play the “Growing a Story” game:
One person starts a story, and then each person adds to it. There are a few variations of this game. You can do it by having each person contribute a word to the story, or a sentence, or a variable amount determined by the contributor. Story might best be ended at a time limit of about 10-15 minutes. It can be fun to force the next person into a tight spot by turning the story down an odd road with random associations and unexpected diversions. (See Book Trailers & Other Links)
