Object of Game:Ultimately the object of the game is to create a hilarious story that keeps your
friends laughing for minutes and hours to come.
Preparing For The Game:
First, pick several articles from your teen magazines. I try to pick the
ones with famous couples, or my favorite teen stars in them. The
articles should be relatively short in length.
retype the articles using your favorite word processor set to
triple-space. Remove several nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs,
quotations, names, places, and exclamations from
each story. In place of these deletions, type solid lines with an
indication of which part of speech each is (noun, adjective, adverb,
verb, etc.) written underneath the lines.

character (teen star) is still part of the story. When the story is
finished only the circumstances
surrounding the person will be different... In other words, don't
take out the cute boy or girl!
Decide who will be the "story secretary". This person will
fill in the words in
the appropriate spaces as they are given. The story secretary is also
responsible for reading the final story out loud when it is finished.
Everyone else at the party will take turns coming up with the different
parts of speech in each story.

filled out completely, it is then read out loud. That is when the fun
Just remember that it is cool to be
kooky, and weird as you come up with the replacement words!... The
funnier the better!
If the parts of speech are difficult for your guests,
you can provide a list of a few kooky words in each category - a few
nouns, adjectives, adverbs,
