The Toaster Game

3.5 stars

Everyone sits in a circle.  In the middle of the circle is a toaster.  Toaster Game

Put a piece of bread in the toaster and pop it down.  Once the toast is down, go round the circle and people have to quickly say one thing about themselves.  When the toast pops up, the person talking has to eat the toast with whatever topping you (the leader) decides.  Start off with simple ingredients such as jam, butter, etc. and slowly add more unusual ones (like potato, icecream, mashed banana).  Works best if you have the toaster on a short cycle!

This is a great game! one thing you can do is place numbers on the ingredients you plan to put on the toast ( but hidden like on the bottom so others can't see) Then the person who has to eat the toast has to pick a number 1 through (how many ingredients you have). Whatever the number is linked to that ingredient is the one you put on the toast.

To add on to putting numbers at the bottom of the food, you can make them roll a dice.. so even if they have gotten say, 5, which is wasabi before, they will possibly get it again as compared to, if they already know 5 is wasabi since they have chose it before, they will not choose it again :)
