Last Action Hero
Last Action Hero is an arc game.
Number Of Players
Like any typical arc game, the number of players can range from around 6-10 players.
General categories for objects or themes are usually best. Suggestions such as "fruits," "automobiles," or "farm animals."
How It Is Played
The host will take suggestions from the audience like those listed above. The players in the arc will then come up one at a time and produce cheesy action movie one-liners in the vein of Arnold Schwarzenegger or Jean Claude Van Damme fitting the suggestion given. Usually the one-liners are accompanied by a quick mimed action, like a series of punches or shooting a machine gun.
Example: Suggestion - Automobiles
- "I don't have time for your SAAB story."
- "I fill 'er up with DIEsel!"
- "You can't afFORD to cross me."
Tips For Performance
- Like other pun games, such as 185, it may be easier to create your joke "backwards." That is, find a connection between the category and something else (for example, sob and Saab). Then, create the setup for the wordplay.
