For smaller younger groups.
Everybody sits in a chair in a large circle facing inwards with one person in the middle. The person in the middle then chooses a player and asks whether they love their neighbour. If the player answers “yes”, all players have to move a number of places set by the caller to their left. If they answer “no” everybody has to move 1 seat to their right. The objective is to move once around the circle.
Rather than everybody move, and so everybody having the same neighbour through the game, it may be more interesting for only the player themselves to move (or the player’s neighbours) to move places, and then having to sit on each others laps as they move around the circle.
A slightly more complex and interesting version of this for older children is the ‘Lap Game’by
