Sweet Nothings is an arc game.
Number of players
This game is traditionally played with eight to twelve people.
For suggestions, the host would either get a list of items and locations from the audience at the beginning, or would get the suggestions as the game progressed.
How it is Played
After getting suggestions, performers from the line will use the suggestion to either compliment or insult a loved one in the audience. For example, if the suggestion was shoe, you could say, "Our relationship if like a shoe: it has run its course" or "Your face is like a shoe: leathery."
Tips for Performance
- Try to have an equal mix of compliments and insults
- If the performers can't think of anything, move on
- After a really good laugh, and you've had about five suggestions used, call scene, as this game can run long
