How To Play Who's Line Is It Anyway

Everyone's seen the TV show right? It used to be on in Australia in the afternoons I think. Anyway, it's a theatre sport game. The possibilties are endless but I'll just start off with something simple. Get everyone to write out their name on a slip of paper, then mix all the names up in a hat or bowl. Also prepare some ready chosen bible stories and put them in a separate hat.

Here's how it's played:

1. Pick out a random (well known) bible story.

2. Roll the dice.

3. Whatever number you rolled, pick out that number of kids from the hat.

Those kid(s) must act out the scene in a matter of minutes. On the spot... no preperation. Usually the more outgoing and active kids will try to get the shy, quiet kids involved. It can end up really hilarious if only 1 kid is chosen for a scene that needs many actors!

---

As I said above the possiblities are endless... this is one version of the game and it could be played in many ways so feel free to be creative and comment back to let everyone know how it went!

Materials Needed

paper, pen, hat, dice

Who's line (the show) is a great inspiration for funny games to suit the more mentally motivated students or those who are just class clowns...
