Like Identity Circle (Click Here) or Fruit Basket Upset (Click Here). Have everyone sit in a circle except one person who stands in the middle. Everyone in the circle has to be sitting in a chair or on an “x” marked on the ground with tape (there has to be only as many designated seats as there are people sitting in the circle so that the person in the middle has no place to sit).
The game begins with the person in the middle saying something that “they have,” or “have never” done (ie: “I have two sisters”, or “I have never worn a dress.”) All the people who can identify with the statement (they “have two sisters” or “haven’t worn a dress”) must get up and find an empty seat other than the one they just vacated. The person stuck without a seat is now in the middle. This game has no time limit and is a favorite among groups —- kids request this game weekly.
