A relaxed no prep game for junior youth and small groups

How To Play Walrus

This game works a lot like psychiatrist but has it's own twist and humor.

Start out by having one person leave the room. With the rest of the group decide upon an action the person has to guess. This could be anything like: Reading, Sleeping, biking, taking a shower... etc. Then decide on a random other word to replace that action with such as: Walrus, Zeppelin, Teddy bear... etc. When this is decided the other person enters the room as starts asking people questions about the action. The youth have to answer with the substituted word in a sentence. The goal is the other person to guess the action.

This game is a lot of fun and will cause a lot of laughs can go as many rounds as you want and will continue to amuse.

Example of what the question and answers may sound like: (Walrus=Blinking)

Q."How often do you to do this action?"
A. "I tend to Walrus every day"
Q. "Do you usually Walrus alone or with other people?"
A. "I tend to Walrus when I'm alone and with other people"
Q. "Do you Walrus while you sleep?"
A. "No I don't tend to Walrus when I sleep"
Q. "Is Walrus seeing?"
A. "No, Walrus is not seeing."
Q. "Do you Walrus while you're under water?
A. "I try not to Walrus while under water, but it happens"
