Gather your group say, “OK. I have a train that goes from ________to ________ (any two locations will work). Does it work?” If the group responds “yes”, they are correct. Then say, “I have a train that goes from _________ to __________(again, any two locations work). Does it work?” Although most of your group will likely say “yes”, they are wrong. The train only works if you say “OK” at the beginning. The locations are completely irrelevant.
Grandma likes “G”
Tell the group that Grandma only likes certain things, and it’s their job to figure out what she likes. For example, she likes grapes, but not apples. She likes to organize, but not clean. She likes swings, but not slides. The tricks is that she only likes things with “G” in them.
Similar to Black Magic, a game from a few weeks ago, this one requires two partners who know the rules beforehand and pretend to have a telepathic link. Have your partner go away and ask the group to give you the name of someone famous. When your partner comes back, everything you say is a hint for the famous person’s identity. If you’re starting with the famous person’s first name, say, “this is a game of snaps”. If you’re starting with their last name, say, “this is not a game of snaps”. And if the famous person has only a single name (i.e. Madonna), say, “this may be a game of snaps”. Next, give your partner hints about the consonants in the famous person’s name. If the first letter of their name is M, you could say, “Maybe you’ll get this”. Hint all consonants in this way. For vowels in their name, snap once for “A”, twice for “E”, three times for “I”, and so on.
