Space on my Right


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 stand in a circle with a gap.

The person to the left of the gap says “There’s a space on my right and I’d like to fill it with (name of other player)”.

The named person crosses the circle to fill the gap.

This leaves a space on someone else’s right, so the game continues
