A walk-forward game. Players stand on the back wall with their backs to the audience. Using audience suggestions for the “World’s worst ____”, players come up with examples.
World’s Worst Farmer:
Player A jumps on stage and on to a rake: “OW”
Player B: I don’t believe in tractors, I use a toothpick.
Player C: I’m a rabbit, I LOVE CARROTS!
This is a commitment game. Commit to going on stage and doing something before you have an idea or if you’ve thought about whether it’s good.
Additional Tips for Playing
- Lead physically. When you’re on the back wall (backs to audience) keep your knees relaxed so your body isn’t stiff.
- Even if it isn’t the best idea, spin round really quickly, jump on stage and do it with commitment.
“This game is called World’s Worst. Our players are going to stand on the back wall and come up with examples of the World’s Worst blank. To get us started could I get some professions?”
