Black Magic

The guesser and the giver work together in this game. To play "Black Magic" you have one person, the "guesser", close their eyes or face away from the group. Then, another person, the "giver", silently points an object out to everyone else in the room. This object is now an "it" that the guesser has to guess.

Have the guesser turn around. The giver points to many objects in the room asking if the object is "it." The secret is, none of the objects are "it" until after the giver points to something black (a person's shirt, watch, phone, anything black). The object immediately after is the "it" in question.

For example...

Giver: "Is it this Cheerios box?"
Guesser: "no"
Giver: "Is it my (black) boots?"
Guesser: "no"
Giver: "Is it this soda can?"
Guesser: "yes"

This should drive everyone in the room crazy trying to crack the code!

when i played this game the teacher picked only one and told him how the game works. then we kept on playing i thought the one who got him told him what we are looking for !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why would you give the secret away? The whole point of the game is for people to figure it out themselves. Once you know the secret you never divulge it. EVER!

Thanks!!! Our sub-teacher started playing this game and everyone was puzzled. She gave away the game so many times and none of us could understand (she would say is it the stapeler (which was black) and then she would always point to the object that was "it". I now know how to play, even though I cheated and went on the net..but oh well!!!
