Two participants are released, and the others are told: “We will tell them that, during their absence, we had a collective dream. And they will have the right to question us, with questions by yes or no, to know what dream it is. But in reality, we have not dreamed, and it is they who will create it with their questions. The rule, which they will not know, will be the following: To any question ending with an e, a, or a s, YES will be answered. And to all others, NO. ”
Both participants together we made it back, and by their questions, we answer with a beautiful set, they create the dream. In the end, if they have not found the trick, we make them summarize their dream, and we explain the process.
The three lyrics
Three rather talkative participants were released. In their absence, we appoint a clerk, to whom we give a pencil, paper and possibly a lamp. And we give the public the following instruction: “Say nothing. The three words that will be pronounced by the guinea-pigs who will come back in succession will be those which they will say, respectively, the day of their birth, the day of their marriage and the day of their death. Then we bring back one of the participants. He is not told anything, and when he has pronounced his three words duly recorded by the clerk, he is made to sit down, without explaining. The next one is brought in likewise; then the third … It is only after the third has played its role that we will explain the end of the case, rereading the words recorded by the clerk.
Telling a story
The story begins as follows: “Monsieur Hulot, by opening his wardrobe, did not find his bowler hat …” Each, in turn, continues with a sentence, and the history is noted by a clerk.
Each of those designated by the leader must start with a song. If he does not find, or if he resumes a song already chosen, he is eliminated.
Mimic a trade
We give the initials of the trade, and we mime it in front of the others. He who finds himself in turn a job for others.
A list of words to mime is established at the beginning. One out of two moderators has a copy (the order of words may not be the same in the different lists). The other host controls the smooth running of the game in the team.
Each team sends an ambassador to his “monitor-list”. The monitor gives him a word to mime (character, phrase, film title, La Fontaine’s fable). The one from the team that found the word first, comes back to the monitor-list to ask the next one. The game ends when the slowest team finishes the list, or when the time is up, as originally agreed. To differentiate the scores, the monitor-lists can add words of their own, when the official list is complete.
Big Hall Version: Only one mime ambassador for the three teams, and earn the point for his.
We can organize a trial party on the theme of an anniversary:
- Are you mature enough to accede to the majority, the driving license?
This can be a kind of “class council”: the passage into the Fourth.
- Who is the owner of this bowl, found at the scene of the crime?
- Who lost his tent bag, stole a mallet, ate nutella, etc.?
In all cases, there will be a president, a clerk, a defense lawyer, a general advocate, and a jury
