Example text

The Given Circumstances are that the room is in total darkness; this is what is experienced by the blindfolded players. After the first two players have either found the keys or each other, or after a reasonable time without a result, the game is stopped and two other players take their turn until everyone has played the blindfolded stage. Stage two The game is played in exactly the same way except that this time no blindfolds are used and the Thief and the Guard play with their eyes 30 THE MAGIC ‘IF’ open; the ‘darkness’ is now only imagined.

Example: A: would you like to star in a play at the National Theatre? B: No. A: What about a holiday on a beautiful island, all expenses paid? B: No. A: Would you like some chocolate? B: No. A: A cup of coffee? B: No. A: A million pounds? B: No. And so on. The players then reverse roles, with B making the offers and A refusing them.
