Exquisite Corpse is a parlor game popular among the Surrealists of the early 20th Century. Players begin with part of a drawing or poem, then pass their creation to their neighbor, who adds the next part of the image or composition without seeing much or any of what has already been done. This yields fun and surprising results.
