Happy, Sad, Mad
This is a scene game.
Number Of Players
This is a game for three players.
Location, occupation, relationship, etc.
How It Is Played
The stage is divided up into three zones. From the audience's perspective, the leftmost zone is "Happy", the middle zone is "Sad", and the rightmost zone is "Mad". As the players perform the scene, they must embody the emotion of the zone they're standing in. As they move from one zone to the next, their emotion changes, too.
Tips For Performance
- Although the zones dictate the emotion the player must embody, the player can behave in different degrees of that emotion. For instance, "Sad" doesn't have to be full-on weeping, and "Mad" doesn't have to be ripping people's limbs off.
- Since the zones are the main gimmick of this game, it's important for the players to move around a lot. However, the movement should be justified.
- Straddling the line between two zones (thus having to embody two emotions at once) is a perfectly legitimate, and quite entertaining if done right. Just don't do it too often.
