This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
Warm-up game that`s also good to get to know each other`s names.
Everyone in a big circle. You start by `giving` your neighbor your name. Just
lift your right arm and call your name to your neighbor. He does the same
to his neighbor, and names run around the circle.
Then do the same with the letters of the alphabet. Give an `a` to
your neighbor, making a
`giving` gesture with your right hand. Your
neighbor continues by passing a `b` to his neighbor, and so on.
Ditto with the numbers 1 to 9. Use another gesture, e.g. pass the number
by tipping your right foot in the direction of your neighbor.
When everyone`s got this, try all of this at the same time. Start by passing
your name, and as soon as the name thing has advanced 2 or 3 players across
the circle, set a letter thing in motion, and then a number thing. If you
have enough players, just mix and match.
Pay attention to how much gets lost - does everything you set in motion
eventually get back to you or not? You can coach players by saying they
only need to pay attention to what their neighbor does, not what`s going on
elsewhere in the circle.
Feel free to pass other things, each with it`s own gesture. Possibilities
- months of the year;
- notes (like `do`, `re, `mi`, ....)
