Imagery matters! Pick one solid image from your best moment (assigned sense)
Write it at the top of a piece of loose leaf, then fold it over
Pass it to the next person, who must draw a picture of that image, folding over theirs as well
Next person has to write what they think the image is,etc.

When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
