A great ice breaker game which is sure to lighten the mood and get people feeling comfortable around one another.
Get the group to stand around in a big circle, all facing inwards. Choose a leader (who knows how to play) to start the game by demonstrating their animal noise. For example, they might do an elephant, making a trumpet-like noise while waving their arm like a trunk. Then continue going around the circle, getting each player to chose a unique, individual animal noise (and action). When everyone has had their turn then get someone to start...
The game works in a "pass the buck" style. The first player will do their own animal noise, then pass it on to someone else by doing their animal noise. So it might go "elephant - cat" then whoever is the cat must respond "cat - donkey" etc. If a player takes too long to respond, or passes back, or stuffs it up, then they are out!
