Coffee and Play an Improv Game

Cocoa Cinnamon in Durham

 

It's summer folks. There's nothing better than sitting outside, eating something, and enjoying the weather. For this Meetup event we'll be trying out an improv-based game.

 

 

The Improv Game:

 

* Freeze *

by

Andrea Meyer and Hans-Peter Stoll

At this Meetup event we'll be playing an extremely rare German game called Freeze. Originally published in 2010, only 444 copies of the first edition were made and we've got one of them.

In the game 4 players will randomly be given a rank (1, 2, 3, or 4). Then they will be given a situation and will do improv. Rank 1 players will act like they have the most authority and Rank 4 will have the least...and it's up to the players to act their part (but they don't know what the other player's ranks are).

For example: In a hospital scene the Rank 1 player is the head surgeon, Rank 2 is the junior surgeon, Rank 3 is a nurse, and maybe Rank 4 is the patient. The actors and audience do not know each other's ranks and only the actors will know what the "scene" is.

Basically figure out and play your part the best for 45 seconds and see if people can figure out who played what. At the end of 45 seconds a die will be rolled showing either 1, 2, 3, or 4. Whatever number is rolled, everyone has to guess who played that rank.

There won't be a stage at Cocoa Cinnamon, we'll just be playing outside! No experience necessary.

    I will be at Fullsteam doing the run again, so I'll come over and spectate.

      Looks like I'll have to leave after the Fullsteam run so likely won't be stopping by to spectate after all.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
