A lively game that requires a leader to manage play. Each player thinks up the name of a town, city or village which they keep for the duration of the game. For large groups, the leader may want to write down each of these names.

Players sit in a circle with one person standing in the middle. The leader then calls out the “The post goes from [A] to [B]” where A and B are the names of two of the places. Those who were called out then have to change places as quickly as possible without the person standing taking either of their places. The player that fails to get a seat in the next person to stand in the middle.

To help play, and liven things up, the leader can when they want shout “Royal Mail!” at which all players need to get up and change places.
