A step-by-step guide to play the game


All players stand in a circle.


The game leader calls out a number and a topic, e.g. "three" and "pets".


The group then has to split into groups of that size, so in this case into groups of three people, who all have something in common related to the topic. For example: one group of three people who all have cats, one group of three people who are allergic to pets, one group of three people who have more than two pets, etc.
