This Week’s Topic

It’s time for a game!  This week, we will be playing “The Good News Gone Bad Game!”.

How To Play The Good News Gone Bad Game

It’s easy…  bring in or find a news item while we’re together, and “break it” by changing one fact.  The break could be a little change or a huge one.  You will present your one to three sentence summary of the story.  Then we will try to figure out which fact is broken in 90 seconds, after you’re done presenting the news item.

Feel free to use any and all available resources to figure out the broken fact, including search engines, calling a friend, tarot, or whatever else you think might help. (If 90 seconds is too quick we’ll try two minutes, but I’m guessing that 90 seconds is enough time to either figure out the broken fact or realize it’s going to be really hard to figure it out.)

Along the way we’ll probably not be able to avoid talking about one or two of the stories, and that’s ok too!

Join us Tuesday at 12PM noon SL, and thanks for being part of “We Are The Network”.

Best regards,
