Game mashup

The more places people store a memory in their brain, the easier it will be to recall. That’s why this game combines talking, acting, drawing and other modalities to help participants remember key concepts, words and phrases.

The video was recorded one evening during the Maydays improv festival at Osho Leela in Dorset, and includes rounds inspired by Articulate, Charades and Pictionary. When you play it yourself, you can also include other rounds such as finger puppets, sounds or facial expressions – anything that makes sense for your learning objective.

As you’ll see from these edited highlights, the game is lots of fun. My thanks to the lovely improvisers who agreed to take part.
