CHINESE WHISPERS


Objective:

Send messages around the circle and listen to the fun!

Game type:

Passive. Little or no movement is required.

Players:

6 or more players

Needed:

None

Rules:

This game is intended for a large group. The group sits in a large circle. The groups should be spaced about arms length apart. The "originator", usually the one who organized the game starts a message. The originator whispers a short message into the ear of the person sitting to the right of them. The message is whispered once. The new messenger then whispers the message into the ear to the one to their right, and so on and so on. When the message reaches the person sitting to the left of the originator the message is announced out loud. Seldom does the message arrive in its original form. The person to the right gets to be the next originator.

Variation:

Start one message to the right then start a message to the left and see what happens. Tongue twister are really fun messages to send.

Sample story:

There once was a frog name Rudderfuddy who wanted to be prince. He had a tiny sword and wore a princely crown. One day he set off to find a princess in the land of Tipplebuckle. There, he discovered a castle, swam across the moat and hopped to the top of the tower where he found the princess doing situps. They kissed and in a puff of smoke she turned into a frog!
