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.
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".
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".
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.
