In this game, a word or phrase is shown onscreen as a prompt for the improvising band. While the musicians are performing a spontaneous interpretation of the prompt, the audience is voting on the next prompt by tapping an interface on their mobile devices. When the timer is done, the musicians must shift course to reflect the winning prompt.
