Coffee and Play an Improv Game
Wednesday July 10th, 2013
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 *
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.
- Priority will be given to those who have paid their 2013 dues. RSVP list will be adjusted accordingly.
- Only RSVP if you plan on attending and everyone who joins must play the game.
- There's plenty of free parking at Cocoa Cinnamon and in the surrounding streets.
