Game description

The first person has a rumour of 3 to 4 sentences whispered in his ear. Then he whispers this rumour in the next players ear. What is the outcome after all players has gotten the rumour? The game can be played with teams. The first person of each team will be told the rumour outside the room. They then pass it along to their teams. The last person of each team tells the leader the rumour. The team that tells the rumour the most accurately is the winner.


A number or letter is drawn on a child’s back with the finger. The child must guess the number, letter (or complete word). 5-6 children sit behind each other in groups. The first person in line is shown a number, a motive (dog, cat, mouse, house, tree, bird, ...), or a word. The person now draws the item on the next person’s back with their finger. As soon as he thinks he has worked out what has been drawn, he then draws it on the next person’s back and so on. The last person in the line must now draw this phrase/motive/letter/number on a piece of paper and hand it back to the first person in the line. In the next round, everyone moves one place forward, the first player becomes the last player. The group with the best results wins the game.
