Real Identity


Great “getting to know you” and memory game. Everyone is in a circle and each takes a turn saying their name and something about themselves (example, “Hi, I’m John and I play football”). The next person needs to say the previous person’s name and item of interest before saying their own name. For example, “He’s John, he plays football and I’m Mary and I torture small animals”. As this game moves on, people need to remember more and more information. With bigger groups, you can have them only repeat the names to save time.
