Game description

1-2 players are sent out of the room. The rest of the group represent a machine which is fully out of control making wild movements and noises. The group thinks of a switch which makes the machine stop. The players are then brought back in. They must now find the switch which makes the machine stop. This might be touching the players behind the ear (or a certain person) or stroking the right knee.


No scoring required. You should think about introducing a touching game. It can open the opportunity to talk about taboo subjects and about physical feelings.
