Situations is a game where you and your friends (or acquaintances, or classmates, or family, or mortal enemies) construct thesituationof a story together, taking turns adding people, events, places, and so on, and then each player writes their own story by interpreting the web of relationships they just created! It's a way to get creative with your friends, help you find time to write, or horse the people around you to figure out how exactly a shark would go to university.
Since the cards are just combinations of nouns and relationships, they can also be used in lots of other ways besides the game printed in the rulebook.Situationscan be used as:
A brainstorming tool for stories
A prompt generator for improv
A tool for generating roleplaying game scenarios
A tool to generate writing prompts for the classroom
