Jumbled Articles

No. of Players: 2+
Type of Game: written
What you need: newspaper

Goal

To put a jumbled article back into proper order.

How to play

The gamemaster cuts out an article of about a dozen lines from a newspaper or magazine. Each individual line is then cut out and jumbled in a random order. The other player then has a certain amount of time to put the lines back into the correct order. If there are many players, the individual lines can be numbered so that players can keep track of the order on their own piece of paper. Or else multiple copies of newspapers can be used so that each player gets their own set of jumbled lines. The first player to successfully re-order the article back to its original state is the winner and becomes the gamemaster for the next round.
