Description:

This game works on peripheral vision and ensemble playing.

One player is sent outside the room, and the other

players form a circle. The players in the circle decide on one of them

to initiate the motion. That person starts some easy, repeatable

motion, and the single player is brought in and placed in the center of

the circle. The initiator changes the motion every so often, and the

person in the center tries to guess who the initiator is. The person in

the center gets three guesses. It is up to the caller to make sure that

the initiator changes motion frequently enough, and that the guesser

doesn't take too long between guesses. Obviously, if everyone in the

group stares at the initiator the guesser will have no problem. The

trick is to look at someone who is looking at someone, who looking at

the initiator, who is in turn looking at someone else. The motion

trickles outward from the initiator. It is up to the guesser to find

the center of the pattern.
