2-North, 3-Northeast, 4-Northwest = success; 
5-Southeast, 6-Southwest = partial success; 
7-East = unsuccessful; 
8-West = exceptionally unsuccessful (major complication).

Group narrates/roleplays result. Take time for dialogue and description. 

Continue cooperative storytelling  until new attempts with uncertain outcomes exist. Spin result.

***During scene-transitions***, players narrate meaningful flashbacks for each kid with exceptional result. 
Then spin for transition: 
1-South) soon after previous scene, 
2-North) players' idea, 
3-Northeast) hour later, 
4-Northwest) 8-hours, 
5-Southeast) day, 
6-Southwest) week, 
7-East) month, 
8-West) month BEFORE.

***At midpoint ask:*** Why kids now want to be in boat?
