This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
Description: all players sit in a circle. Only one
player should know how to
play and what the secret is; this player is the leader at first, until others
catch on. This person points at random people in the circle each time saying
either "click" or "bang"; they should make it sound and look like what
they are doing has to do with math or the order they are going etc.
The secret: it really doesn't matter who is pointed to, what is said, when
they are pointed to, who it begins with or who it ends with, it just depends
on who speaks first after the clicks and bangs are done. So the person who
begins (the one that knows what's going on) will declare whoever talks first
dead by saying "you're dead". That person isn't "out" or anything, it's
just for effect. The game continues until the players catch on. If somebody
thinks they get it, the leader gives them a chance to say the clicks and
bangs and they get to announce who is dead; the leader will then be able to
tell if they understand the secret if they
announce the right person as
Make sure that once the players begin to catch on, they don't spoil it for
the others by letting the cat out of the bag. Also, the game is best if
played with ten or more people.
