Have you ever played Consequences before?
Well, our game of What on Earthlings is the same as Consequences.
You can play this game with 1-3 human earthlings...
What is the game?
This game can be both funny and fantastical. The aim of the game is that each player takes it in turns to find a picture in a newspaper or magazine and collage them together to create a mythical earthling. One picture will be needed for a head, one for the body and one for the legs (these pictures can be human, animal, plant or fantastical). After a person has had a turn they fold over their chosen image so that the next player to add their cut-out can’t see the cut-out from before.
When the game is complete you unfold the paper to find an amazing discovery – a mythical earthling!
What you will need
1 or 2 other people to play with
1 piece of plain A4 paper (you can use the back of an old letter if its blank)
Old magazines or newspapers
Scissors or a craft knife. If you are using a craft knife make sure you are very careful (it’s a good idea to have an adult earthling help you)
Something to lean on
A phone with a camera
Fold it into 4 equal parts
Take the piece of paper
Unfold the paper and flatten it out
