Inside or Outside
couch or 4 lawn chairs
To get 4 of your own team members on the couch
You need equal numbers of guys and girls, and form a team of each. You can ask girls to join the guys team if required and vice versa. You will also need a couch, which can be a real couch (which would replace four seats) or four adjacent seats or lawn chairs. Write all of the playersâ€™ names onto pieces of paper and give one slip to each players. You become whoever your piece of paper says you are â€“ donâ€™t tell anyone whose name you have. Everyone sits in a circle, alternate guy, girl, with four people on the couch and the rest on chairs. Have one extra, empty chair. The object of the game is to get all your gender onto the couch. The person who is sitting with the empty chair to their left calls out a name, trying to get the opposite gender off the couch. The person with that piece of paper must stand up and move to the empty chair. They then swap their piece of paper with the caller. The next person to call is the one with now empty space to their left.For example, say that Megan calls out "Jack". Grandpa has the name "Jack" on his paper so he moves to the empty chair and exchanges papers with Megan. So Megan now becomes "Jack". The person who was next to Grandpa now has an empty space on the left and is the next caller.This goes on until one team has 4 of their own players on the couch. This game starts off slowly and the games donâ€™t last long but as the players catch on they will really start paying attention and memorizing the names people are exchanging.
