game-of-the-week-more-4A lively game where people find out what they have in common.

For this game everyone needs to be sitting in chairs in a circle, apart from one person (the caller) who stands in the centre. He calls out a category beginning with “The sun shines on anyone who...”, such as “Anyone who is wearing blue.”

As soon as the category is called out, anyone wearing the colour blue must move to a different chair while the caller tries to sit on one of the empty seats. This usually leaves a new person standing in the centre. Players are not allowed to return to the chair they got up from or to sit on the next chair along – otherwise it is too easy.

  • The game can get extremely lively, so remind players to take care when crossing the circle.
  • If the caller can’t think of a new category, he or she can say “All change!”, at which point everybody must move to a new seat.

Game of the Week is taken from 101 More Drama Games and Activities available from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle.

Come back for a new Game next week!
