Do you love your neighbor

2.5 stars

Get everyone to sit in a circle and have one person in the middle.  

The person in the middle walks up to someone and says "Do you love your neighbor?"

They will then respond something like this:

Yes, except for the people who have brown hair
or
Yes, except for the people wearing red
or
Yes, except for (insert your own criteria here). 

Everyone in the circle who matches that criteria then needs to get up and find a new seat whilst the person in the middle tries to steal (sit) in someone's seat.  The person left standing becomes the new person in the middle.

The other option is the person can respond "No", which means the two people either side of them have to switch seats while the person in the middle tries to steal their seat. 

This game is obviously physical so take necessary care!

This game also leads on quite nicely to a discussion around loving your neighbor in real life - Who is your neighbour?  What does loving them look like in your context? etc.

I am wondering why you have an advert for Mature Dating along with a hideous picture on your website? I am now unable to use your site with young people.

Hi Jackie - thanks for your feedback. Ads are chosen programatically by Google so we don't specifically see or know what is displayed, however we do have the ability to block ad categories which we have just done for that ad so hopefully that ad won't reappear.
