Actuality vs. Potentiality

a game

It occurs to me that in any observed situation there is an actuality to what is transpiring, and potential actuality that isn't real, but still very plausible. The goal of the game is for a group of people to watch a scene and develop both the actuality and as many potentialities as possible, for that particular scene. Potentialities score points for detail and cleverness. Judges are assigned at the beginning of the game.

       It may actually have one. In which case you'd lose a point for listing it in the potentialities.

       This game should be like Fictionary, or Balderdash, where people define a word and the winning definition is the one with the most votes. Because there an an infinite number of potentialities (in _this_ one, daseva's hat has only oranges and bananas, no pineapple) and number created should not count towards score.   

       This could be an online game, which would facilitate the video watching.

       Online. Indeed! Nice one, phoenix, didn't do that on purpose.

       What is that upon a scrabble board point system?

       Sounds like watching a bad movie.

       I wonder what weird permutations the gaming culture would develop.
