THE GAME OF TELEVISION NEWS
You are a reporter on a local news team, competing against the other reporters, and the clock, to turn a real news
event into the best news story.
NO IMPROVISATION OR TRIVIA KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED
As a reporter, you'll have limited time to collect story parts, including quotes, sources, tag lines, and sign-offs. You’ll combine these pieces with your news event to build your story.
The story you create can be simple...
Or more complex...
Think of Action News as rhetorical Tetris; or an anthropomorphic set of refrigerator magnet poetry after it went to college and got a journalism degree.
YOU'RE ON THE AIR!
The humor in Action News arises from the bombastic, wacky stories and situations you'll create around the most important events from the 1960s to today. The base game has no unseemly language to worry about.
