Tarot Advent Calendar: 10th December 2010 - Tarot Mad Libs

It's best if you do this with a friend. Each of you writes a short story about something they did that week or take your favourite holiday time poem. Leave out random words. Make sure to leave out different types of words like nouns, verbs, adjectives etc. If necessary, specify. Make a list telling your partner which type of word is needed and whether it's needed in singular or plural form.

Now your partner draws the required number of cards and writes down a word they associate with the card. Add the words and have a laugh. :-)

Example: Christmas in our family

Christmas is always a ___________________ (adjective) time of the year. All our family come together. First we have ___________________ (something edible) and ________________ (a drink) and then we ____________________ (verb) together in the living room. Uncle Fred always _______________ (verb 3rd person) in an armchair close to the fireplace and the children __________________ (verb) and ____________________ (verb). 
Mother is in the kitchen preparing _____________________ (adjective) duck and ________________ (something edible) for dinner and father ____________________ (verb 3rd person) for the children. This year mother will get a big surprise. Father finally bought her the _______________________ (noun) she had her eye on for so long.
And so on and so forth...you get the picture. Here's the cards:

1) adjective: 5 Pentacles - deprived
2) something edible: Ace of Pentacles - pancake
3) a drink: Six of Pentacles - rain water
4) verb: Queen of Cups - float
5) verb 3rd person: Eight of Cups - meanders
6) verb: The Tower - explode
7) verb: 6 of Swords - emigrate
8) adjective: 10 of Swords - stabbed
9) something edible: Page of Cups - trout
10) verb 3rd person:  Page of Pentacles - procrastinates
11) noun: 4 of Swords - marble slab

Here's the Tarot Mad Lib version of "Christmas in our family"

Christmas is always a deprived time of the year. All our family come together. First we have pancake and rain water and then we float together in the living room. Uncle Fred always meanders in an armchair close to the fireplace and the children explode and emigrate.
Mother is in the kitchen preparing stabbed duck and trout for dinner and father procrastinates for the children. This year mother will get a big surprise. Father finally bought her the marble slab she had her eye on for so long.
