There is "Given Scenario", but that only lets you call up scenarios
defined earlier in the same story. So you could use that but the
semantics don't seem right for what you're wanting - which seems to be
a collection of verifications that should be the same for different
pretexts, as opposed to a collection of givens that diverge at some

Regardless - take a look at examples/stories/game-of-life. It uses
Given Scenario as intended.
