Test your skills of observation! Can you catch all the changes your partner makes or will you be defeated?! This game will keep you guessing (and learning)!
Designed for All Ages! (Instructions and Adaptations below)
1. Stand facing someone and observe them closely. Be sure to notice all the details about their physical appearance in this moment.
2. Now turn your backs to each other and make 3 specific and subtle (or not so subtle) changes to how you look. Each change must actually be observable. If you change something that no one can see it does not count.
For Example: I might change the side my pony tail is on, turn my jacket inside out and untie my shoe.
3. When you have both made 3 changes turn back to face each other. Now take turns guessing what changes were made.
4. Play the game again, but try to make changes that will be harder to guess.
- Were you able to guess all the changes?
- How did you feel when you guessed correctly?
- How did you feel when you guessed incorrectly?
- How can we make this game more difficult next time?
- Why do you think an actor or designer needs to pay attention to tiny details?
WHO CAN PLAY THIS GAME?
Anyone! If you have younger players, you might want to play in teams and help them make the changes/guesses.
OTHER WAYS TO PLAY THIS GAME
- Play like we did in the video and call someone on facetime or zoom or text pictures back and forth.
