This game is a great ice breaker type game and the group loves it. They beg me to play it regularly.
It can be played with anywhere from 10-40 people. The only materials you need are enough chairs for each player less one and a list of questions.
Put the chairs in a circle and everyone takes a seat. Except the person who is it. he or she stands in the middle and you ask “it” a question about him/herself.
It can be as harmless as their favorite christmas gift, or you can go deeper depending on how well the group trusts each other. Give the person who is “it” a way out if they really object to the question ask a different one.
Once “it” answers the question they have to say “I like people who…” and they fill in the blank with something like. I like people who wear blue. Or I like people who have brown hair. Then everone in the circle who has that in common with the person who is “it” has to get up and change seats, but you cannot change to the seat next to you on either side. You have to move at least two seats away. The catch is it also has to be true of the person who is it. If a blonde said I like people with brown hair they would have to try again.
If the person who is asking the questions says Trainwreck. Then everyone has to change seats.
Keep an eye on their energy level. We have broken a few folding chairs when the group gets too excited.Read more
