Have the group sit in a circle. The first person says the name of any city, river, ocean, or mountain that could be found in an atlas. The next person must say another place that starts with the last letter of the place previously said. There is a 10 second limit and no place can be repeated.
Examples: Denver, Rhode Island, Denmark, Kenya
No Sir, Not I Sir
Set up chairs in a circle. Once everyone in the group has taken a seat, number the seats (i.e. from 1 to 14 if you have 14 chairs. Make sure everyone remembers the number of their chair). A leader begins the game by announcing, "The Prince of Paris has lost his hat and number '__' has it!". Then, start counting to 5. The person sitting in the accused seat has to stand up and say "No sir, not I sir! Number '__' has it!". The leader then starts the count to 5 again, and the newly accused repeats the process. If a person does not stand up by the count of five, then they must take the last seat and everyone behind them moves up (example: if #3 gets booted, then #4 becomes the new #3 and #5 becomes the new #4 and so on. #1 & 2 don't move). Once everyone has moved, a new round begins. Remember that it is the seats that are numbered. So when everyone moves up a seat, their number drops by 1. The goal is to trip up the people with lower numbers than you so that you can make your way to number 1.
Other things that can knock a player back:
- Standing up when their number isn't called (if 6 is called and 5 stands up, 5 is booted)
- Calling a number that doesn't exist (Calling 17 when there's only 15 chairs)
- Calling their own number (self explanatory).
Manner of the Adverb
One or two people leave the room. While they are gone, the rest of the group decides on a "fun" adverb that they can act out (slowly, nervously, awkwardly, etc.). When ready, the guessers are invited back in. They instruct any individual or group of individuals to do things "in the manner of the adverb". For example: "Adam, comb your hair in the manner of the adverb". Or, "Melissa, dance in the manner of the adverb." Or even, "Max, brush your teeth in the opposite manner of the adverb." Can the guessers figure out the adverb?
