Small Group Icebreakers, Topical Curriculum

Story, The

Travel or Small group game. Stand or sit in a circle. Go around the room assigning the name of a person, place or thing to each person. The first person in the group begins to tell a story that they make up. Within 10 seconds (longer or shorter is okay) that person must mention the person, place or thing assigned to them. When the timer goes off (you can use a kitchen timer or just a stop watch) the story is picked up by the next person and they must mention their assigned person, place or thing within 10 seconds.

This continues around the circle until everyone has had a turn. The stories can get pretty strange but that's the fun of it.
