Relations blitz
Improvisation game
Description: Throwing multiple relationships at one player.
Set-up: Every one sitting in a circle except one player (A) standing in the centre.
Instructions: Players walk in turn to the centre of the circle to greet player A. Each player chooses a specific character and situation to greet player A (e.g. as a sister in a house on fire, a boss on retirement day, a friendly stranger in an hostage situation etc.). The central player, without being told what they are, responds to each situation accordingly. The game is over when all participants have made an offer.
Variation: Turn the greeting into short scenes, then try to link the scenes to build a narrative.
