20 Theme Game


The 20 theme game is a game where someone chooses a topic, for example, "books that have animals in their titles", and i give an example.

1. The Hound of the Baskervilles - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The next person to reply will add another book they can think of that applies to the topic.

1. The Hound of the Baskervilles - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
2. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey

This will go on until we get to 20 posts, where the person who gave the 20th title gets to pick a new topic. You may only post up to 3 titles at a time, and you must wait for another reply before you can add more to the list (this is so one person can't end the topic for everyone just because they know 20 books that apply off the top of their head). So let's try this out, we'll start with the above example.

Books that have animals in their titles:

1. The Hound of the Baskervilles - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
2. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey

One day a man was walking in the woods when he encountered a tiger. He fled in terror and the tiger pursued him. He eventually got to a cliff, climbed down a vine and dangled from it to escape the tiger's jaws. Then a pair of mice came out of a hole and began to knaw on the vine. The tiger growled hungrily the top of the cliff, and the vine was thinning. As it was about to break, the man noticed a strawberry growing from the vine. He ate it and said "Mmm...damn good strawberry".
