Tips: Don't think of an action that throws your partner under the bus. Give them interesting, but not embarassing, actions.
Skills: Specificity is great in this game, because it gives players a chance to practice how to mime such specificity. For example, do "digging a hole to bury my treasure" and "digging a hole to bury a dead body" look different?
- Physicality is important to practice acting out the details of the action. Players are free to add any physicalizations or characterizations necessary; however, don't let it turn into an entire scene.
- Don't let any one player's actions go on too long; there's some benefit in making players get to the "point" of an action quickly.
Variants: If the group agrees, all actions and characterizations can be done without vocalization or dialogue (except, of course, for the question "What are you doing?" and its answer). This forces more emphasis on Physicality.
