Example of a new improv game:
Sentimental Garage Sale
Invite each participant to bring in an object they care about. Set up the stage with a few tables and place the objects on them. One person plays the seller and another person enters as a buyer. Have players improvise dialogue as the buyer enters the sale. When the buyer selects a random item to purchase, the seller goes into a lengthy (improvised) explanation of the history of that object and why it is important to him or her. The buyer ups the stakes, offering more money or other enticements. Ultimately, the seller decides that he/she doesn’t want to sell it after all. The buyer then becomes the seller and another person enters the playing space as the buyer. Play until all participants have had the opportunity to be both buyer and seller.
