Game description

This game is ideal for children from 8 years and up, to get to know their new playmates. Ideal for situations where for example, children come together for the first time or do not know each other very well. (Holiday camps, etc.) All children form a big circle. Now the game leader takes the ball and passes it on to the next child right to him while saying out loud his name. The child takes the ball, passes it on to the next child right to him and also says his name. This way, the ball has to go through the entire circle once. When the ball returns to the game leader the rules, slightly change. The game leader throws the ball to a random child while at the same time saying his name out loud. This child catches the ball and throws it to somebody else saying their name.


More balls can be used simultaneously. This variation is especially popular with large groups and creates a lot of fun.
