Requires: Masking tape, marker, stopwatch
All players sit in a circle and take turns, going clockwise.
On each players first turn, the player to the right is “Death” they hold the stopwatch. The player to the left (and sequentially each player around the circle) is asked a question.
The active player notes the answers.
Who is this lost soul?
How did they die?
What was their desire?
What stopped them getting it?
When they stop, Death writes the time taken on the tape, an attaches it to the player’s forehead so everyone but them can see the time indicated.
Once the circle has been completed, each player begins a second round of questions begins, this time answering questions posed by the other players in turn.
Who mourns your lost soul?
How can they resolve the souls’s desire?
If the player takes longer than the time indicated on their forehead, they are unable to help the lost soul who now wanders endlessly.
The player who’s second round time is closest to their first round time saves their lost soul, by resolving their desire. Other lost souls fade away into oblivion.
