Name Six

Name Six is a great teen party game as well as adult party game. This game is best enjoyed with groups of 10 or more.

Object of the Game

The object is to name 6 things that begin with the letter chosen by the leader before the ball makes it's way back.

Setting up the Game

Players sit in a circle and begin passing around a ball, bean bag, or other non-breakable object.

One player is designated as the leader and stands outside the circle. They are the one who determines the letter the items will start with.

Playing Name Six

Players begin by passing the ball around the circle. The leader chooses a letter and calls it out. The person with the ball when the letter is called has to come up with 6 things that begin with the letter before the ball makes its way around the circle and back to them.

Whether or not the player was successful they remain in the circle and play continues on.

The leader then chooses another letter and another player. The leader needs to be sure that each player receives a turn.

Once all players have gone the ones who were unsuccessful in coming up with 6 words remove themselves from the circle. The remaining players start again. This time there are fewer players and thus the amount of time it takes for the ball to make it around is shorter.

Play continues in this manner with the circle getting smaller with each round.

Winning the Game

The last player to successfully name six in time is declared the winner.
