One person volunteers to play the game. One person stands in front of them. The player must follow the physical moves of this person, like a mirror. This is the most important focus. Get this going first. On one side have a group asking personal questions (what’s your favourite item of clothing? Where did you go to school?) nothing too intimate. When these two things are happening, add another group on the other side of the player. Their job is to ask general knowledge questions. The idea of this game is to overload the player with lots of things happening at once. The questions should overlap. Most people find that they are really relaxed afterwards having overloaded their brains (and got out of ‘work’ head).
