Psychiatrist Game

A game to drive people crazy, and it can’t be played twice, so be careful.

Set Up
Choose one person who has never heard of this game, and ask them to leave the room. One way to choose is to make the game a forfeit for the looser of a previous game. You're best with someone who will ask creative questions, so choose your victim wisely.

After they have left the room explain the rules to the rest of the group, who should sit in a rough circle.

Rules
The rules are simple: the victim will go around the circle and ask questions. Each player must answer for the player sitting to their left. You must answer the question even if you don't know the answer, and you can lie. However if the player giving the answer has said something untrue of you, you must declare "psychiatrist".

Declaring
Once psychiatrist has been declared everybody must change places. The only exception is if a question is asked that will give away the game (e.g. "what is your name?") the player must not answer, and they declare "psychiatrist".

Play
Now call the victim back in the room and explain that their objective is to discover the rules of the game, and that the best way to do it is to ask invasive and tricky questions. This game can become quite frustrating for the victim, so occasionally you will have to spare him/her. Try to sway the questions - especially if they ask too many straightforward questions such as names.

Very few people ever really win this game, so play as long as you want....it is a great game, good fun for all.

I played one where the psychiatrist asked a question and the person would answer and then he would ask another one, but you would start answering to the previous question

I've played another variation, with out calling psychiatrist

If the victim's question ends in a vowel, the answer is No, if a consonant it is Yes, and if a 'y' it is 'Maybe'

Played this game with a youth group.

Great fun, just make sure you have lots of "diseases" on hand. My favourite was the mobster!

I learned this from my peers anda it was fun, especially the first time, im planning a party and i was planning to use this game, but now i have more about it, it will help make it better. But like the last comment, you can choose any type of disease, like the patients play with thier foot whne htey answer, or scratch thier head, or can't say colors, etc.

But you forgot the most important rule. You can do more than just be the person on the left. The group's "disease" can be anything:
Example Fill-in-the-blank Diseases:
1) Everyone believes he is the person sitting _____
2) When a person _____, he is ______. Otherwise, he is ______
3) Everyone answers questions in ______ style
4) People have a certain aversion/obsession with a certain letter/word/object
etc.
But these are just simple guidelines. The actual "disease" can be anything no matter how obvious, vague, figurative, hypothetical, or stupid.
This also adds the ability to replay the game as many times as you would desire and with anyone as the "psychiatrist".
