No “And-It-But” (from What Does a Lion Say?)
For Ages 5 to 95
For 2+ players
- Don’t let “and,” “it,” or “but” slip into your story.
- One person starts by making up a story or talking about something they like to do, without using “and,” “it,” or “but.”
- After a minute, the next person continues the story, and so on until all players have had a turn.
- Keep going until someone uses either “and,” “it,” or “but.” If they do, they’re out!
