Excellent game for players to get to know each other's names. Everyone is in a circle. Player introduce themselves by making a gesture, and alliterating to their name, e.g. "I`m Wonderful Wendy" or "I`m Smart Steve". The next player points to the first, repeats the previous player`s name, attribute and gesture, and does something similar about themselves.
And so on. Game ends with the first player having to do each other player`s gesture, repeating their names and attributes.
Get everyone in a big circle. One player starts by making a little gesture, perhaps with a little sound. Their neighbor then tries to do exactly the same. And so on. Although we expect the gesture/sound not to change, it will.
Watch for movements that suddenly change left/right arm or leg. This is not really supposed to happen, but it will. Once happened, it should be accepted by the next player. Also watch/listen for little sounds that players might make before or after their turn - these should also be taken over by the next player.
Fun game to warm up and to teach players to give up some of their control and to be changed by others. Everyone is in a circle. There are 3 things a player can be:
-An alien: hold your index fingers up next to your head, as little antenna`s and say `Bleeb bleeb`, bending inwards into the circle
-A cow: bend forward, hold your right hand on your tummy and go `Moooo`
-A tiger: push your right hand forward, imitating a claw and roar. On your sign, every player decides to become one of the three. The idea is for everyone to become the same, which obviously won't be the case, the first time. We re-do this until everyone is in sync.
Invent your own animals (or things) and let players become juke boxes, birds, whatever.
Play `majority wins`: animals/things that are most in the minority drop out. Also known as Rock Paper Scissors.
