    This is a game that also helps the way you write.  I will start it with giving the next person a topic in which to describe.  That person describes it and gives the next person the same.  For example:

    The old car.....

    next person might say " The antique porche with tinted windows and bad paint job."  Then give the next person from his answer,

    the antique

    Ok, I will start it off with " the little boy"

    Remember you are supposed to describe the topic given to you then give the next person a topic.

    The little boy ......

    The short thin five yr. old boy was quietly reading a book.

      The book's ink-blue covers were studded with golden sworls and stars, as if the witch from the story inside had cast her spell over the binding.

              The rarest tree in Brazil is the cow tree, so named because it's fruit has juice that looks like milk, allowing the monkeys to feed their babies this to suppliment the mothers milk.

            The look on the doctor's face varied between abject horror, befuddlement, curiosity, and wonder.  It was priceless.

    As the chieftain sat in the shade of a tree watching construction of the last of the huts his thoughts wandered to the young village girl who he planned to make his fourth wife. He was oblivious of the deadly snake slithering silently towards him.
