How To Play: Exquisite Corpse is a form of group poetry used in
France in the early 1920’s. A player folds over the top of a page, puts
his name on top, and passes it to another who then writes an
acknowledgment. This player then folds the paper down over his
acknowledgment so all that is visible again is the name. It is then
passed to another and the process continues for several rounds. The
final player hands the paper to the originator and then each player can
share his or her acknowledgment “poem” with a partner or group.
Plan for Success:
Before playing, try having players fold their paper, fanlike, so
spaces for the acknowledgments to come during the game are premade.
