- Give two participants a location/situation and characters to play in an improvised scene.
- The first line of the scene must start with the letter A, 2nd = B, 3rd = C and so on.
- If someone messes up, another person can tap in and take their place continuing the scene with the correct letter.
- Encourage the scenes to wrap up with the last letters of the alphabet.
TIP: It is always difficult to find words for X and Z. You can relax the rules a bit and allow the use of words that start with the general sound of the letter such as ‘excellent, expert and excessive.’ Additionally a Shakespearean “Zounds!’ might also provide a good ending.
VARIATIONS: You can ask people to begin the next line with the last letter of the previous one. In this version it is harder to plan ahead and participants are forced to listen to their scene partners right to the end of their line.
