Open, Closed

Everyone sits in a circle. The trainer gives a pencil to the person sitting to their right according to a rule that only they know and says: “I take open/closed, I give open/closed.” Each of the participants has to pass on the pencil while saying the rule and the trainer says whether what has been said is right or wrong. The game finishes when most or all of the participants have understood the “real” rule. (The “real” rule: If your legs are crossed while accepting the pencil, you will say “I take closed,” and if they are not, “I take open.” The same is true for “I give closed” or “I give open.”
