Distance - The Game

Distance is a new game that you can play without any additional tools or toys.

No. of Players: 2 - 5
Age: 12+

  • Pick a language known to all the players
  • Decide a cyclic ordering of the players
  • Each player takes turn and utters exactly one word in the chosen language
  • The player is supposed to utter a word which, in his mind, is conceptually as far away from the previous word as he can
  • The player may optionally explain why he thinks the word he uttered is far away conceptually from the one previously uttered
  • The turn then passes on to the next player in the ordering

The game proceeds until the players have fun.
