Hey everyone I am going to show you how to play a really fun game today. It is called Who Am I. It is a lot like a 20 questions game. It is a great game to get a group of people who don't know each other to mingle. I hope you enjoy this instructable, and love the game.

Step 1: What You Need

Pen (or marker)

Post it notes (1 for every person playing)

Step 2:

Pick one name for each person playing, and write it on a post-it note Don't let any of the players see the names until the game starts. The names can be people you know, celebrities, cartoons, characters from a book, historical figures, ect..... You get the idea. If the party has a theme, use names from the theme. (example star wars: Luke Skywalker, Obi-wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, The Sith. There are so many possibilities, but keep in mind the age- and group-appropriateness of the names. Don't make them so difficult that people give up.

Step 3:

Now stick one Post-it note on each person's back. Do not let him (or her) see the name.

Step 4:

Tell everybody how to play. Each person gets about 20 "yes or no" questions to find out who he (or she) is. (example he (or she) can ask, "Am I a cartoon?" "Am I a girl?" "Am I dead?" "Was I in a movie?" and questions like that. The questions cannot be "Am I male or female?" or questions like that. They have to be yes or no questions. The players have to walk around the room to ask other people the questions. Tell them they can't ask only one person all the questions; the point is to hang out with everyone. Whoever guesses correctly first who they are wins the game. No hints are allowed, but if know one is able to guess you can drop a hint here and there.

Step 5:

You can vary the game by using the names of things instead of people and characters. If everyone loves the game you can always write on more post-it notes, and start over. Please post ideas for ways you would change it in the comments. Remember you can always come up with new and better ways to play. I hope you enjoyed this instructable and don't forget to vote :)

A similar game is to place a name on one persons back and have people ask them questions, <br>Such as, if it was Johnny Cash people would say, when did you learn to sing?<br>Why did you go to prison?<br>You have to get the group to ask the hard questions first, we made a rule that every body groans really loudly if a question is a dead give away.<br>We would ask the next victim to leave and talk about a good choice for them, and do we have some good questions for the proposed person.
