Ok guys. I've always wanted to play this story telling game, but I just couldn't find people who were interested. Female INFJ's lengthy response on my other cafe thread has inspired me to toss caution into the wind and take the plunge.
The premise is simple mwa hahaha. Sorry, pardon my evil laughter. As I was saying, the premise is simple: Imagine that we are all in an INFJ cafe that can materialize in any time period, dimension, planet or place. I admit I shamelessly stole that idea from Nightmare Cafe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Anyhoo, the game goes like this. I will start the story and materialize the cafe somewhere. Then I will give the setting, the layout, the conditions etc. After I have stopped my story, the next person who picks it up has to follow from where I left off. This is a fantasy you all, so please feel free to let your imagination and creativity flow. You can be all that you want to be in this game. It doesn't matter how ridiculous you intend to make the story, the challenge would be for the next person to pick up and carry on.
There are bound to be times when other people have to handle our personas, hopefully there is enough background earlier so that you don't have to put too much words into someone else's mouth. Haha! Some may enjoy that, others may try to get the person out of the story so they can tell it from their point of view. The important part is to remember how the story has flowed so far and to keep it going in a meaningful and fun way.
I foresee that this game might get pretty out of hand, but heck, that is the fun of stories isn't it? Be funny, be creative, be imaginative, be witty and let's see where this goes. At the end of the day, we are all in this together!
There are a few rules to help this game along:
: You must pick up the story from where the previous person left off.
: You should tell the story from your own point of view. (ie, if I end with someone placing their hand on my shoulder, ideally you should be that person to continue or you could be an observing 3rd party)
