1.  Have the class stand in a circle.

2.  Tell everyone to look down.

3.  Assign a counter to count “1, 2, 3…look!”

4.  On “look” everyone must look up and directly at someone in the circle.

5.  If the person you are looking is not looking back at you, you are “safe”.  If the person you are looking at is looking back at you too, you both must scream “ahh!” and fall to the ground.

6.  The counter begins another round with the remaining people standing in the circle.

7.  Play until everyone is sitting or there’s just one person remaining.

    You have wonderful ideas.
    I’ve been teaching drama for over 30 yrs and have created a lot of games myself but was delighted to find your very extensive and fun collection.
    Very well put together.
    Thank you

    So far this is the best drama resource website I have come across. I teach a drama ministry at my church and the games have been well received. Thank you for sharing!

    We play this one all the time, and call it “Witch Melt”. When you catch someone’s eye and scream, we have them melt like the wicked witch of the West. Whoever is left standing wins, and the most dramatic melter wins as well!

    I have a suggestion:

    I decided to try out this game, but with a slight twist. I play it at the first rehearsal for my Childrens show. I usually have quite a large cast and they usually do not all know one another. I have everyone in the room introduce themselves and then we play this game. If you meet eyes with another person in the circle, instead of screaming, you have to say each others names and then you are out. It is a fun way to get to know each others names and break the ice at the same time.
