Four on a Couch

by Jess

Materials: paper and pencil/chairs and a couch

Messy Rating: No Sweat Duration: 20-40 minutes Cost: $0.00

Place chairs in a circle making the couch part of the circle. Place 2 gals and 2 guys on couch and the rest of the people in the chairs. One chair must remain open.

Have every one write their name on a piece of paper. Place all the piece of papers in a basket. Go around the room have everyone pick out one of the pieces of paper.(they cannot hold their own name) they must not let anyone know whose name they have.

The person to the left of the empty chair begins by calling out someone's name. The person who is holding that name must move from their seat to the empty seat. The person who called out the name and the person who moved to the empty chairs trade the papers with names on it.

Then who ever is next to the new empty seat calls a name out..etc. The point of the game is to for the guys to get all guys on the couch and the girls to get all girls on the couch.
