Small Group Game: Define Me


Paper and pens


  1. Players
  2. Facilitator


  1. Players sit in a circle.
  2. Each player secretly writes down 6-10 words that define the player on their left. Ideally, these words should be positive descriptions of the person’s character.
  3. The pieces of paper are collected by the facilitator.
  4. The facilitator reads out all the words on one of the pieces of paper.
  5. Players attempt to guess who the words describe.
  6. The facilitator reveals who was described. All those who have correctly guessed who the words are describing are given one point.
  7. The facilitator repeats steps 4-6 for each of the remaining pieces of paper.
  8. The player with the most points wins.

Example Words

In a recent game my friend, LH, defined me with the following words:

  • Wise
  • Caring
  • Surprising
  • Enthusiastic
  • Wierd
  • Sympathetic
  • Practical
  • Faithful

How about that for ugly self-indulgence? As to the accuracy of this definition of me, I’d say “wierd” right is on the button. As for the rest? Sometimes they’re true, but all too often: not so much. Aspirations, we’ll call them.

Anyway, enjoy the game!
