The law of C

I adapted this brainstorming game slightly from an activity in the book Intraemprendizaje by Iñazio Irizar (http://intraemprender.blogspot.com.es/).

1. Players seated in a circle, one person standing in the middle points to a player and says, "C!" The player has five seconds to say a word starting with C. If they miss, they go to the center.

2. In Teams: given a theme or object, people brainstorm words related to that object that begin with C.

Consensus on all things

This game is for practising consensus and ensuring the participation of every player.

Joker gives the same question or proposition to all players.
Every player writes down their answer.
Players then share their answers in pairs. If they have consensus, they then find another pair and try to reach consensus again.
If the pair does not agree, they try to convince each other, or to modify the answer until they can both agree.
The goal is to reach consensus among all the players.

Ten Levels of "So..."

Like Ten Levels of Why, but going the other direction.

Start with the last reason given in Ten Levels of Why.

Spoken version:
The player says her/his sentence out loud, then one person says, "so...?"
The player must give a consequence; "So..."
Then another person asks "So...?" and the player must give a consequence that flows from the previous statement... and so on, until ten so's have been asked and answered.
At the end, the person repeats the original sentence and the tenth consequence.

Thinking sideways

I adapted these slightly from activities in the book Intraemprendizaje by Iñazio Irizar (http://intraemprender.blogspot.com.es/).

Brainstorm on a given theme from six standpoints. For example:
Love, Hate, Need, Have, Fear, Hope
or
Useful, Useless, Safe, Dangerous, Easy, Difficult
or, using terms adapted from Edward de Bono (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_Thinking_Hats)

4X4X4x4

I adapted this slightly from an activity in the book Intraemprendizaje by Iñazio Irizar (http://intraemprender.blogspot.com.es/).

For collective brainstorming. In groups of four, in four minutes, each person writes four ideas on a sheet of paper then passes the paper to the next person. Repeat until each sheet has ideas from all four people. Repeat as necessary.

Game Changing Sugoroku

Face the Class

This basic format is useful in many games.

On the board is written the clue, answer, hint, etc.

The player(s) stand in front of the board, facing their team(s). The team members (freely, or in turns) call out hints and the player tries to guess/identify what is written behind them.

Team members can also do pantomime, or even statues, in lieu of speaking.

The Last Word

Like shiritori only you use the last word of the previous sentence to start the next.

Example:

I woke up this morning --> Morning is my favorite time of day. --> Day after day, I try to learn something....

In this form, it is boring -- the sentences are meaningless. Maybe if you set a theme? Maybe make it a dialogue?

Permutation Game

Learned this from students in my Critical Reading course. They used PPT to run the game.

Jokers take quotes from famous people (thematic quotes are best), scramble the words and write them on the board (or ppt). In teams, players compete to re-write the sentences, one word at a time, in correct order. There is a strict time limit of 2 minutes.
