Change the story
A variation on the "Mad Libs" game.
Joker (or each participant) chooses a short text: a news item, an encyclopedia entry, a passage from a text book, a political speech, a poem, etc. S/he then removes key words or phrases, leaving blanks and a hint as to what type of word or phrase is missing (verb, noun, etc.).
Unlike the original game:
- Players have the text in their hands, so they know what it is about.
