One word story
An improvised story game
by The smith Family
Aim of the game
Tell a coherent story for as long as you can before descending into ridiculousness.
Perfect for family video calls!
There's a story in all of us. Take it in turns and see what comes out. One - word - at - a - time.
Think of it as story tennis. Let's bounce.

I need some tips
One person begins
They say the first word they can think of that feels like the start of a story. For instance 'Once'.
A second person continues
Another person quickly continues the story by adding a single word to the sentence, for instance 'upon'.
Players take it in turns
Continue the story in this manner, for example: 'Once- there-was-an-enormous-doughnut-called-Barbara' etc. until it gets too ridiculous to continue.
Start another story!
Sometimes it gets ridiculous too quickly, so just start another one!
