  1. The idea behind this game is that the first poster will ask for a certain word or phrase. Then the second poster will give a sentence from a book that contains the word/phrase, asking for a new one from the next poster. There are only two things to keep in mind. Firstly, don't make the word/phrase too difficult for others to find (and please use real words). Secondly, while it is not required, I would like to see the title and author of the book you chose.

    First poster
    "focused on"

    Second poster
    "If there's one good thing about an angry mob, it's that they are often so focused on being angry and mobbish that they sometimes miss little things." Another Whole Nother Story by Dr. Cuthbert Soup
    "the middle"

    Third poster
    "We might even say that the world is always in media res–which means 'in the midst of things' or 'in the middle of a narrative'–and that it is impossible to solve any mystery, or find the root of any trouble, and so The End is really the middle of the story, as many people in this history will live long past the close of Chapter Thirteen, or even the beginning of the story, as a new child arrives in the world at the chapter's close." A Series of Unfortunate Events: The End by Lemony Snicket
    "for now"

    And so on.

    Anyway, here's the first phrase to start it off: "get out"
