The game continues till everyone has had a turn.

To liven up the game use ideas like when the person says "Who are you?" the other could reply "A Spice Girl" - the person would have to pretend to be a spice girl

- or a ballet dancer, a barking dog, a galloping horse etc.

The list of amusing situations is endless.

This game is excellent for confidence building and an ideal icebreaker.
