Re: Game?

It definitely helps.

Premise-based is accurate because (in my view) the other person has to embrace something before a game is present.


It's going to be super-mega confusing, but we can confidently say that all games are discovered organically.


Thanks for setting me straight on that one.

Re: Game?

Players knowing what the game is at the top of the scene only applies to one format. The Armando. There's room for the game to be tight or loose here. I come onstage with you and have to "figure out" what your idea is. You could argue that this also applies to later scenes of a Harold or M...

Now that we got to the bottom of your request, I'll just repeat this oversimplied truism that hopefully makes sense of these terms: Shortform Finding the scene in the game. (Starting with digital rules and filling in this game with the analog delivery.) Longform Finding the game in the scene. (Start...

Re: Game?

At New Movement, game refers to the players training themselves to truly listen and get on the same page what the scene is about. In the last scene the Game was, "the world shits on Dave and it gets worse and worse for him." Game is the larger frame in which we choose patterns and heighten...

Re: Game?

The game varies from school to school. You asked about the distinction and I'm going to dissappoint you by postponing an overall list of what everyone believes. UCB is unique for a particular reason.
