Dating Game

A classic reinterpreted for character purposes.

Rules:

Played with four students. One leaves the room (or plugs his/her ears). Other students provide character endowments for the three others, like “nervous doctor,” “arrogant astronaut,” etc. The fourth player returns and asks three questions, with each of the three “contestants” answering. After the questions the “bachelor/ette” should guess what the endowments were.

Objectives:

To hone character; to make offers and accept them in character; to play the game of the scene.

Comments:

A fun and fast character game, which works best when played in the game show style. Feel free to add a “host” character to keep things moving.

Adaptations:

Several rounds can be played, and the game can be adjusted to include other “games” (seeing the first dates, Jeopardy-style rounds, etc.).
