Game 3 of 5

The Game, 2005-12-25 - Game 3
Five people (a group that included engineers, artists and musicians) played the following game:
The first person writes a sentence.  The second person draws a picture intended to convey the meaning of the sentence.  The third person, who sees only the picture, writes a new sentence that says what he or she thinks the picture is saying.  The next person turns that sentence into another picture, and so on alternating between sentences and pictures until the page is full.  Then everyone gets to see how the meaning has "drifted", and even more amazingly, how some concepts have remained (e.g. the moustache motif in the example below).  Here is the third of our five game cards:

1.  Oh!  Why the commotion?  There's only five of them!


3.  A family dog finds truffels and they all are quite amazed about the encounter.


5.  Monsieur Moustache is embarrassed, for he has lost control of his cupcake-loving dog, losing the respect of his curly-haired companion.


7.  She felt very depressed about the thought of friend with a moustache letting his fierce dog loose to chew on all the furniture.
