Number of players: 10 or more

Duration: arbitrary
Preparation: none

Swap positions is a simple game while sitting in a circle.


  • You need chairs, one less than participating players.


The participants are sitting in a circle on chairs; one player is standing in the center of the circle.

The player in the center may then express certain properties, like "red socks", "10 years old", "two siblings", etc.

The respective players that meet the requirement then have to swap their sitting positions. While doing so, the player in the center tries to catch one of the free chairs. One player will get no chair in the end - he is the next to stand in the center and express a new property.
