Today's blog is about acting choices ~ and about my new game.
Last week, I went to DragonCon in Atlanta, and had the best time!
And, though I couldn't stay long, I was grateful and encouraged to get enthusiastic support from 70% of the people who took a good look at my "New Choice: Improv Your Life" board game ~ and 100% thought that it was a good idea, at the very least!
That's more than I expected!
In case you're a latecomer, New Choice is: "The improv board game that gets you to speak, sing, or act ~ and grow at your own comfort level!"
See below for the FULL BETA New Choice: Improv Your Life! board game design ~ with 20 countries represented!
Like Monopoly and Life, it is for ages 6 to adult ~ for the young, and the young at heart.
"With that board game design, you're going to give Monopoly a run for their money."
~ Eben Appleton, retired CEO of Docs On-line
For those of you who may not know the comedy improv acting game "New Choice" that my board game is based on, here is how it works:
Two or more actors start to spontaneously improv a scene based on an audience suggestion, but the host can interject "New choice!" as many times as they like, until the actor says a line that the host wants to keep. This can wildly change the ongoing scene.
In ANY MOMENT, in acting + in life, you can choose:
1. Your Thoughts
2. Your Feelings
3. Your Actions
4. Your Place of where you are (even if it is just across the room)
Want to get a jist of how it works?
Here are some examples:
Your Thoughts (example)
1. I am safe.
2. What's for dinner?
3. What's my goal?
4. Everything's going to be alright.
5. Who would I want to be with on a desert island?
Your Feelings (example)
1. I'm feeling lonely.
2. I'm starving!
3. I am bamboozled!
4. I'm feeling utterly confused?
5. I am super curious!
Your Actions (example)
1. I am feeding the dog.
2. I am reading a book.
3. I am hiking along the river.
4. I am riding a hot air balloon!
5. I am doing the Boston Marathon!
Your Place (example)
1. I am on the couch.
2. I am on the porch.
3. I am at my FAVORITE restaurant.
4. I am at Como Conservatory!
5. I am at the Taylor Swift Eras Concert!
Having fun? Want to keep going?
BTW - For each NEW CHOICE, you can speak, act as a different character, improvise a little song ~ or even practice a different language!
Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming opportunity to learn to unlock your vocal potential and have a blast while doing it!
And, be among the first to get news about the upcoming Kickstarter campaign.
