The Logline Game
« on: June 24, 2013, 09:31:48 AM »
The way this game works is you create a logline given the subject and genre given.  And then you give a subject and genre for the next logline.

This game is meant to be fun so the more outrageous your logline, the better...

So if the genre/subject was horror/ice cream  my logline might be...

A young boy battles an ice cream vendor when he finds that the vendor's secret ingredient is people.

The next genre/subject is mystery/oranges.  Your turn.
