Fortunately, Unfortunately


I can't believe you guys don't have this game!

This is story building game. Here' s how it works: I start with sentence, a simple one to set the scene. The next poster then follows on with that sentence with one of their own, starting with the word unfortunately.

The poster following that poster counters that sentence with one starting with fortunately. Basically, the rest of game follows that strain, bouncing between fortunately and unfortunately.

Here's the sentence:

Cassie was walking down the street, when she spotted a coin.




History. It's just one thing after another.

Unfortunately the coin wasn't of any value anymore, an old half-penny.
