Prep: Have player write down Objects, Emotions, and Places on individual slips of paper and put in envelopes (3 envelopes, 3 colors of paper)

Form pairs

Round 1:  Each person tells 1 min story while the other person listens.
Round 2: Person A begins to tell a true story and has to incorporate the info on the slips of paper that the instructor is handing out into their story. 

Note: I walked around the room at a steady pace delivering slips of paper, about 8-12 per storyteller.

Have the partner say random words for the person to incorporate (ie. Swedish 
Story)
Lead into "Remember the time" and two people go back and forth
Remember the time + the slips of paper
