The relay game – Games for youth groups
Playing the relay game shows how easy it is for relayed messages to be changed or misunderstood.
Make up a group of eight or more people in a circle.
One person whispers a 10-word message to the next, who whispers it on, and so on around the circle.
No one may whisper the message more than once.
When the message has gone around the circle, the last person calls it out.
The person who started calls out their message.
You can make the game more difficult by starting two messages going in opposite directions at the same time.
