Attack of the Body Swappers!!!!
I haven't got a fixed idea about the characters or story line involved because the idea is very flexible. Two close friends buy matching pieces of jewelry (they could anything from rings to cuff links) but it turns out they items are more than they first appear as 2 days later the friends wake up in each other bodies, they know that the effects aren't permanent and so decide to have a little fun with it. For instance BFF's Ann & Beth wake up in each others lives, Ann has always had a crush on Beth's Dad and now sleeping under the same roof as him, likewise Beth can't resist to opportunity to have a closer look into the life of Ann's brother.
The basic idea could be used as either a one shot (well two shot really), or a longer term game where they have to deal with fall out when the pair swap back or as an anthology of different swappers with the jewellery getting passed on to different people.A Helping Hand

|MC has just inherited the family farm, in a small town where the main competition is run by a dinosaur who thinks that a woman has no place running a business and so has been everything he can (legal and otherwise) to turn customers and employees against MC. It wouldn't so bad but he's gradually winning, employees are quitting and nobody wants to fill the empty positions. YC arrives in town unaware of the feud and in need of a job.|
You have a busy but successful life, every week a different city. So take some of the stress away you used a very high class escort agency, which has it's own unique customer reward program. Once a year they hire out an exclusive venue, invite their most loyal customers to party all week long with their best girls all for free. But on the first night of the "vacation" the agency holds an auction where you can buy exclusive rights to one girl for the week, and to make life a little more interesting you can see them but they don't get to see you.
When the invite arrives you are delighted, the prospect of all those women de-stressing you for a week, but on that first night you look on in shock as <insert relationship here> walks out to be auctioned. What's worse the fatest, sweatiest, grossest man in the world is bidding on her.You bet what?!

John is charming, handsome, independently wealthy and a total Bro. However when it comes to his girlfriends John is a jealous asshole, him cheating on them is fine but nobody is allowed to look twice at his women.
YC is one John's closest Bro's but unlike John isn't a complete douche with women. There have been a number of John's girls that Duncan has been interested in but following the Bro code, he's never made a move on any of them. And after the way things normally end with John the ex's never want anything to do with John or anyone associated with John.
At the regular bro poker night John always walks away with more money than he came, but this night Lady Luck has left John far behind. Finaly John gets the hand he's been waiting for all night but has almost no money so he offers a different IOU, 24 hours with his current girlfriend Cara. After a few awkward glances around the table everyone agrees. However John's hand isn't quiet as good as he thought it was and he loses to YC.
Leaving John the task of having to explain things to Cara, YC comes up with an inspired idea. If YC can engineer things so that Cara can see what an asshat John really is then maybe she'll leave him and just maybe YC might have a chance with Cara. Cara agrees to pay off John's IOU, partly because she trusts YC not to take the IOU too far and partly to get back at John. The first part YC's plan is simple, put Cara on the beach wearing almost nothing and where John can see everything then sit back and wait for some stranger to look twice at Cara.The Last Line of Defence
A Medieval/Fantasy tale. A town located deep inside a thick forrest is under constant attack of werewolves. The king sends out a platoon of fifty knights to secure the town and wipe out the furry threat. Soon after the knights arrive a landslide comes along wipes away a great chunk of the main road, effectively cutting the town off from the outside world. The werewolves grow even more fierce in their attacks, and after two long weeks barely half of the platoon remains. The lieutenant is dead, leaving his leadership to an inexperienced sergeant. The villagers are in a similar situation, their mayor having been killed by the werewolves, leaving his barely of age daughter to take responsibility and cooperate with the knight to survive the next attack. Food and fresh water are becoming scarce, and moral is at an alltime low. Will they survive or fall to the beasts just beyond the town's walls?Punk'd
The details for this one are very much for discussion. YC works in a store or does charity work, something that's not out of the ordinary when if not their favourite celebrity at least someone in their top ten turns up. The celebrity is there as part of a hidden camera show and acts in ways that are very much out of line with their public persona, but for whatever reason the prank gets a little out hand. After the prank is revealed the celebrity makes a personal apology.
Exactly who turns and why YC was chosen we can decide between us.The Unburglar
What would happen if someone started breaking into houses and instead of trashing the place and stealing stuff, they did something nice? People waking up in the morning to find the ironing has been done or the TV remote has been fixed, nothing earth shatteringly significant just something nice. On one hand people are worried about the break-in's but they aren't in a hurry to catch the person responsible either. So what happens when one resident wakes up in the middle of the night and finds the culprit?
An older married man decides to give himself a special birthday present, he's always had a fantasy about hiring a high class escort. He's both nervous and excited as he waits in the bar for his date, but that turns to surprise as his daughter's friend walks in.
You were never regarded as the world's best student but there were certain fields in which you excelled, like getting into trouble but being charming, suave, handsome and blessed with a silver tongue meant you were able to talk your way out of almost every situation. The talents that kept you out of trouble also became your living, why work hard for money when you can just talk other people out of theirs?
You have spent the last several years travelling around the world talking rich and gullible people out of their valuables, with your favourite hunting grounds being the summer resorts filled with rich tourists. As you head into the bar of one the more exclusive hotel, you see your next mark.
There are a few ways this game could go, is your target really just another mark or they a better grifter than you? What happens if they become more than just another mark?
Seems like not ideas list is complete without at least one student\teacher idea. A man walks into a diner\bar and sees woman and instantly feels a burning passion for her, over the next few days they are almost inseparable. But then Monday morning rolls around and as the bell goes for the first class of the day there she is, walking into his classroom.
Now either she's a new student or he's a new teacher at the school, they both know they shouldn't keep seeing each other but they don't want to stop. I can this possibly being written as two parallel stories; what happenned when they first met & what happens after the first bell.
I was "inspired" (if that's the right word) by a visit to Maxim, they are in the middle of their Hottest Women of the year voting and I noticed there is a write in option, which got me thinking. What if someone worked out a way to rig the write in vote? Exactly why someone would want to do that and how they manage it is open to lots of different possibilities. As for who the vote is rigged for, again there are lots of possibilities; that sweet struggling actress working as a waitress, local TV weather girl. Basically someone who would never appear on the list but also wouldn't look totally out place there.
The weekend away
You and all of your friends have planned the ultimate weekend getaway, the kind of weekend that's four days long involves enough booze to sink a battleship and the kinds of debauchery that would make a hooker blush. One final legendary party just before you go back to college with one tiny fly in the ointment. Your parents have had a sudden invite to stay with some friends they haven't seen in years as you're just having a few "quiet" days away with your friends you won't mind if your sister tags along will you?
The house just down the street has new occupants, YC girlfriend\wife decides to polite and introduce themselves to the new neighbour and YC is going along weather they like it or not. The grumbling half stops when you see the new owner, as they're not an unattractive addition to the street but the grumbling starts again when you are volunteered to help put with a few little jobs that need doing in the house.
