IT'S GOOD BECAUSE
- you can play it in the background and not interrupt the event too much.
- it's also good for getting everyone engaged.
You need everyone to be wearing a hat, so either use paper hats from Christmas Crackers (hence the name), or just give everyone a normal party hat. The game is based on observation.
At the start announce the simple objective, which is to remove your hat, and not to be the last. The only rule is that no one can take their hat off until you have. Let another game or conversation take place, and as time goes by, people will take their attention off you, and even forget the game is happening.
Eventually remove your hat and watch as people notice. Gradually the hats will come off, amidst sniggers and smirks. Some unsuspecting person (who's probably busy boring everyone with a story) will be the last to notice: this person is the loser.
Serve up an appropriate forfeit (see our forfeits page), get the hats back on and give the loser the chance to start the next game.
