Items needed for the preparation of the game
Make everyone sit in a circle and tell them you’re going to tell a story and that the best is to help create it. Select an extroverted child to start or write some ideas and start ourselves. For example: “It was a rainy, cold night when I walked down the road, and I saw a big, creepy house from the distance.” The story then moves to the next player who must add his/her own intrigue or surprise; this continues until all guests have participated and completed the story. Without the knowing of participants, record the narration of the story and then play it at the end. For fun: Turn off the lights and put a flashlight under the face of narrator while the narrator has its share of a ghost story.
