B.3. Pass the Buck
This game requires a “Buck” (pen, glove, etc.).
The leader holds the Buck, and explains that no one can speak unless s/he is holding it. Pass it on to the next person in the circle, or to whoever raises his/her hand to speak.
Toss it quickly back and forth: you have to speak when you have it, or you are out.
Use it to tell stories: whoever has the Buck has to continue.
This game can be used by the counselor or leader as an effective tool in many situations. For example, during a group meeting when participants are not hearing each other out, or are competing for attention.
