Sitting a circle is a simple coordination game for groups with ten people and more.


No equipment is required for this game.


The participants form a circle, standing very closely to each other. They stand in a way so that they all look into the same direction (for instance, clockwise). In case it is necessary, the circle should move together more closely.

Then, everyone sits down onto the lap or knees of the person behind.

When all participants have succeeded in doing so, the circle could try to move forward, or to move the whole circle to another position.
