Stating The Obvious

This game is best played with people who have not met before.

Sit everyone in a circle. One person sits in the centre. Everyone gets to say a statement about the person in the centre. There are three rounds:

- First round people make statements starting with: "It's obvious that..."
These must be things that are verifiable e.g. 'It's obvious that you are wearing red socks." etc.
You can't say "It's obvious you like red" because that's an assumption. Participants cannot respond.

- Second round begins: "I assume that..."
This observation must be linked to an observable fact e.g. You could now say "I see you are wearing red socks and assume you like the colour red". Again the participant listens without response.

- Third round begins: "I imagine you..."
Now people can make wild guesses about the participant e.g. "I imagine you have six cats and three dogs". The participant can answer if true or false at this stage.

It's amazing how intuitive people can be about each other at first meeting, and the central character loves to hear how she/he is perceived.

Others take turns to go in the middle. No-one is forced to have a turn. Usually by the end people are queuing to have a turn.
