Lightbulb Three Words Game

The MBN lives. It is GAMES GAMES GAMES time!

Hold on to your socks, tighten your seats, and FLY INTO THE ABYSS!

LISTEN UP VERY CAREFULY, THIS IS WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN:

  • I say three words.
  • Next person bases a one paragraph story upon these words.
    And gives another three words for the next person.
    (don't forget giving three words for the next person!)
  • And so on and so forth.


Example:
Camel, Scarf, Tomato

"I was riding on my camel through the desert, eating a sandwich. Being sloppy as I am, a slice of tomato fell off my sandwich and the camel ate it immediately. I guess tomatoes are poisonous to camels because it dropped dead shortly after. I had to walk on foot through the harsh desert, and had I not been wearing that scarf you gave me I probably wouldn't have made it."
Let The Game Begin

And the words for the next person are:
military, cat, air.

Hmm... this game requires a lot of imagination and labour to make it interesting. The words don't have to used in the order presented, right? 'cause your example does.

military, cat, air:
"The military considered acquiring cats for their service, being the little ninjas that they are. It was a success. They'd put a cat at the end of a tank's cannon, and when the cat fell on the target, adjusting himself while in the air, he could grab the victim by the head with his paws."


mouth, orangotango, pillow

Nope, doesn't have to be in any particular order. And yep, creativity, that's the goal here! Three words can make your creative juices start flowing a lot better than just staring at a blank page.

Ok Wikipedia, here I come.

*read*read*read*read*read*eradae*rad*read**raerdrd*reraerd* *RAED*. OK.

When King John first agreed to the Magna Carta, he could not have foreseen the chain of events that this would trigger. By the time the citizens of England got themselves passports, it was already too late. He could only watch in dismay as the English chocolate economy broke down and the Pounds were pouring away to the Toblerone factory in far Switzerland. This unfortunate decision has ultimately led to the fall of the kingdom and to his beheading that followed shortly after, performed by the hands of the Toblerone CEO herself.


Asset, Solar, Bubblegum

(changed 'heptagrams' to 'solar' to lessen difficulty level, but if you mysterious next person already began writing I'll change it back!)
