- Sit in a circle.
- Pass around a ping-pong ball (or other small object at hand) while music is playing.
- Stop the music and ask the person who is holding the ping-pong ball to tell a story, such as ‘Tell a story about your favourite place’ or ‘tell a story about a time you had to defend your opinion’ or ‘tell a story about a time you felt uncomfortable about a situation and didn’t know how to respond’.
- Continue to play the game by playing the music, passing the ping-pong ball, and then asking a question to whoever is left with the ping-pong ball once the music has stopped.
- Ensure as many people get a chance to talk by stopping the music strategically.
