Description:
Three people sit in chairs facing the audience. They act as if they have one mind between them (i.e. they cross their legs at the same time and mirror each otherís movements as close as possible). They are introduced by a host as The Caregiver Expert a being with three bodies but only one mind. A being three times smarter than anyone else in the room. As such an intellectual powerhouse The Caregiver Expert can answer all questions.

The game begins by the host getting a question from the audience. The host re-phrases the question so it is as clear as possible to the people playing the expert when to begin the answer. The three people answer the question by speaking one word per person to form sentences. After the third person speaks the third word the answer can continue with the first person speaking another word and so forth untill the question is answered. The answer probably should not have any more than two times around. The three players who make up the expert should listen to each other as closely as they can to fit thier words in together so it sounds as much like one person as possible. The answers will be ridiculous and sometimes ungrammatical and thatís great. The only goal is to listen to the person before and answer quickly.

Example:

Audience question:

Why is the sky blue?

Expert:

The - sky - is - blue - because - it - is - not - green.

Applications:
Listening and fun. This breaks up a group and can help with teamwork.
