Subconscious is an Acting Improv game first played during 06.2. This game has largely fallen out of popularity and use as of 15.1.


  • 2 people
  • 2 subconsciouses

How does it work?

Two people have a conversation. The remaining two act as the subconscious minds of the first two. Each time the "body" says something, the subconscious says what that person is really thinking. Often, the two subconscious will wind up having their own conversation or directing the movements of their "bodies."

A variation of this game is played with shoulder angels and devils; basically, one person has an angel and devil, and the other person has none. This was done with Frank Wang, whose angel eventually became a second devil.
