Fortunately, Unfortunately

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Fortunately, Unfortunately is a word game first played at conventions of the National Puzzlers' League in the late 1980s[citation needed]. It was invented and introduced by one-time NPL president David Scott Marley. The game is best played in groups with an odd number of people.

* One person begins with a sentence (e.g. One day Little Johnny walked to the local shoe shop).

* The next person tells of something unfortunate that happens (e.g. Unfortunately, Little Johnny was hit by a refrigerator.).

* The following person contributes a fortunate event (e.g. Fortunately, the refrigerator was made entirely of marshmallows), and the process is repeated.

The game does not have any specified ending point.
