It is a process of elimination game and can be altered to suit any occasion by changing the questions or the conditions for elimination. In this version, the people who can respond in the positive are "Promoted" and the people who must respond in the negative are "Fired". It helps to have the "Promoted" people stand and the "Fired" people sit down.
The game begins with a very general condition to which most attendees will respond in the positive, such as:
"If you have ever held a paying job, please stand up." or
"If you have any change/coins with you, please stand up."
The idea is to allow as many as possible to participate initially, then eliminate them (through ever-more specific conditions) until there is only one winner. It is useful to prepare your list of conditions ahead of time to suite the occasion.
All the rest of the conditions or questions need to be phrased something like this:
"If you use computers in your job, remain standing." or
"If you have a penny among your coins, remain standing."
Those who do not meet the stated condition are to sit down (are fired) and those who can continue to stand remain in the game (are promoted).
This game can also be played in a reverse fashion, such that the conditions or questions begin:
"If you have never....(something), then please stand-up (or remain standing)."
Continue in a suitable fashion for your function until there is a single winner. Keep it short!
This game is intended as a break from the routine of the meetings and works well with groups of 10 or more.
