Instruction Manual Die

Instruction Manual Die

Description

Inspired by Storyteller Die, the players get a a suggestion of an object that wouldn’t normally come with an instruction manual. One player gives the chapter title (e.g. The History of OBJECT), and points at the players in the line. When pointed at, the players must continue what the previous player was saying. If they mess up or stutter, the audience shouts “die!” They then continue with the next chapter. Pointer can also introduce further challenges such as accents or doing the instructional manual in rhyme.
