Two words

This evening I was discussing with a friend a fascinating idea for a game.

Each of you gives the other two words. With the two words you are given, you need to spin out a tale, which can be fantastical, moving, suggestive, ridiculous, or heart-breaking. It’s entirely up to you.

The important thing is that you use those two words as random seeds to fan the fires of your own imagination.

What I like about this game is its perfect reciprocity. Each of you is providing the sand for the other’s pearl. Neither of you has any control over the spark that will light the flames of your creativity.

As games go, this one is pretty good.
