Community Level 2 – Familiar
How To Play: Players stand in a circle with their eyes closed.
After one player is secretly chosen to be the pizza delivery person,
everyone opens their eyes and begins to mill around the circle space.
As they are walking around, players shake hands. The pizza delivery
person is shaking hands with a unique handshake, while everyone else is
giving the formal handshake. When a player feels the unique handshake,
they stay where they are and pretend to eat pizza saying, “Ummm, ummm,
good!” The game continues until a player, who has not yet received the
unique handshake, raises his hand to guess who is the pizza delivery
person. If he is wrong, he stays there and pretends to eat pizza. If he
is correct, the game ends and a new pizza delivery person is chosen.
Plan for Success:
There are many strategies to this game. Let the students come up with
the rules and strategies of their own. Model how to make a guess with
raising hands, and how to act out eating the pizza. Let players know
the consequence for blurting out their guess.
Variations: Say good morning to each other as a greeting as you shake hands.
