Desert Island


This is an introductory game, used to help learn and remember the names of others. Like most name games it is very simple, and not really intended for repeated use. Sprinkled here and there in a programme of activities, however, name games can form a useful first step in getting to know peoples names, and learning just a little about them.

How to play

Players form a circle standing on chairs or benches.

One point of the circle is designated as the start. Players must get off the desert island by rearranging themselves in alphabetical order of their first names in the circle on the chairs.

Remember there may be sharks so no-one must touch the floor.

Resources Required

Chairs or benches.
