      Variation – use opposite hand (non writing hand) to draw.
      Teams of 5 or 6 work best with school aged participants.
      Have high energy music playing during the game.
      Run away from the participants when they come to you with the answers.

      One of my favourite peak activities to use to end a group session. This can get crazy competitive and fun especially if you have built the session to finish with this activity. Its just brilliant !! Couple of suggestions..
      * For fairness especially with primary schools/teens who might bring this up, either move yourself between rounds or rotate the group between rounds so they feel that it is all even..
      * Create a little seated waiting area e.g. 4 seats if you have 4 groups playing, for those coming up to you with the next clue. It helps manage the group and makes it easier for you to get the old clue and give the new clue to without having to worry as to who was next.. makes it safer for you too.. not getting trampled by overly excited participants Awesome fun

        Great idea re the ‘waiting room’ approach to handling those waiting for next clues. I’ll add that to the next time I play it. Thanks for sharing.
