Playing the Game
The goal of this game is to see how many people can guess the most items you’re passing around.
This game also involves a story so tell it while the lights are off and holding a flashlight under your chin for a spooky effect. Once you tell this part of the story, turn the lights on so that people can write the answers.
Now, tell the story (in orange):
"Once in this town there lived a man named Hal O. Ween. T'was years ago this very night that he was murdered out of spite."
is his brain, which now feels no pain."
Pass around the overcooked whole head of cauliflower
are his eyes, still frozen with surprise."
Pass around the two frozen peeled grapes or olives
is his heart. Be careful lest it start!"
Pass around the large lump of uncooked liver

Pass around the handful of corn silk or wet fur or yarn
hand all alone, just rotting flesh and bone."
Pass around the damp plastic glove filled with gelatin or ice

Pass around the dried apricots

Pass around the pickle, hot dog or a soft chicken bone

At the end, of the story, have everyone pass their paper to the person to the left.
Tell the story again, but instead of passing the items out, ask what people thought it was. Then show them and tell them the right answer.
The person with the most items correct, wins!
