Props was a game played on both the British and American editions of Whose Line.

Greg Proops and Jeff Davis get raunchy with their prop.

All four performers took part and were given a prop to work with. To begin with, these were recognizable objects, however they soon became unusual shapes of foam or other humorous things. The two "teams" were then buzzed back and forth and had to come up with skits featuring the prop.

One famous rendition of this game on the British edition featured Greg Proops' team having what looked like a bottomless rubbish bin and Ryan Stiles's team having small furry items which looked like (and were used as) dead animals. The second-last skit featured Greg calling "Hurry hurry hurry. Step right up for the Chicken Toss", before throwing a furry item at the bin and missing. Ryan, in the final skit, called out "Oh look! A chicken toss!" and threw one of the furry items into the "bin" successfully.

There have been occasions where the performers broke or destroyed the props they were given. In John Sessions' final episode, he broke the axe, that he and Ryan were using. In the UK Christmas episode, Mike McShane tore the feather prop, and in a US episode, Ryan broke a red/white colored prop.
