Hourly Game Day (Joel Shempert) Game #9 Relationship

Game 9: Relationship, a roleplaying poem for 2 people.

You are a couple having a contentious discussion about day to day matters. One of you is the Initiator, the other the Responder. Decide which, between you.

Initiator, choose one of these at random; do not reveal what it is:

I cannot…

…admit I’m wrong
…say I’m sorry
…let a matter drop undecided
…reveal WHY I want what I want

Responder, choose one of these at random; do not reveal what it is:

I cannot…

…advocate my own interests
…say when my feelings are hurt
…make a firm decision
…correct a factual error

Initiator, decide what the discussion is about, and start the conversation in your own words:

What to cherished item to cut from the monthly budget
What activity to do on date night
Who should handle a necessary chore
A point of dissatisfaction in sex or affection

Initiator, have a firm opinion on the subject when you begin.

Conversation continues until one party says “OK, fine,” AND the other party responds, “OK, fine.”
