  1. Have all the participants form a circle, facing the middle.
  2. The leader shouts out a letter of the alphabet and points to a person in the circle. That person must mime an object that begins with the letter. For example if the letter is ‘B’, then they might mime a ball or banjo or book.
  3. Once the mimed object is clearly portrayed, the participant says what it is. 4. The next person does a mime of another object beginning with the same letter. For example, a bandage or bongos.
  4. Continue in the same direction until everyone has gone. No repeats allowed, so participants must use their memory to make sure that each mime is new to that particular game. 6. Once the letter has made a full trip around the circle a new letter is chosen and a new person to start.

TIP: It’s important to keep selecting a new starting person with each new letter. The last few participants have it the toughest, trying to come up with a mime that has not been used yet.
