  1. Select one participant to be the leader. This person must create a simple language rule and keep it to themselves. One example is that all words must begin with a certain letter.
  2. Everyone including the leader forms a circle, facing the center. The leader says to the group, “I’m going on a trip.”
  3. Going around the circle each participant responds by saying, “I’ll bring a ____”. Fill in the blank with any noun.
  4. If the word matches the leader’s rule, the leader says, “You can come too.” If it doesn’t match, the leader says, “Sorry, you can’t come.”
  5. If a person is allowed on the trip, they leave the circle. If they figure out the rule, they are asked to keep it to themselves.
  6. Those that are left behind can continue to try to get invited.
  7. Other example rules could be; the item must have a double vowel (goose, foot, stool, etc.), or the item must start with the last letter of the word before it (shoe, elephant, tires, stepladder, etc.)
