Today's CE217 class involved the students' splitting into groups and writing a choose-your-own-adventure story based on an outline using a string-of-pearls plot I put together. They had about 90 minutes in groups of 3 or 4 to do it, whereupon I played it.

I started off on a cruise ship after breakfast. I decided to play a round of golf. I hit a Frenchman with a golf ball. I went to apologise. He punched me in the face and I spent the rest of the cruise in the infirmary. Hmm, so not off to a great start then...

When I backed up and started again, I managed to pick almost every option that the students hadn't got around to writing. Things progressed, though, until the climax when I defeated the antagonist by getting caught in an infinite loop.

It was a lot of fun designing the stories, though. Maybe next year I'll try give them a little longer to do it...
