Chinese twhispering

Via The Digitalist, I learn of a new game called Frankenstory "the game where two heads are better than one" (did Frankenstein or his monster have two heads?). It seems quite easy to play – you write the start of a story and sent it via the Frankenstory site to a friend. The friend continues it, but can see only the last few words you wrote. Write two parts each and the story is finished, whereupon you can both see the whole thing. Apparently the game is hilarious: The Digitalist says that in combining "the short text style of twitter with Chinese whispers storytelling this is fiendishly fun. The end product may not be the most readable thing, but it will make you laugh."

  1. I feel the urge to start a blog post with the sentence “The end product may not be the most readable thing, but it will make you laugh.”

  2. Hmm, then I will write the next sentence: “But before that, you will have to go through a lot.”
    I don´t know how Chinese the concept is as my siblings and cousinds and I often played similar games when I was a child.
