Brainstorm Rummy

  1. Divide the participants into groups of 4 or 5.

  2. Give each group a piece of flipchart paper.

  3. Announce a general topic to the entire group, such as Animals, Holidays, Vegetables, Actors, etc.

  4. Give the groups one minute to brainstorm and write down as many examples of the topic as they can.

  5. When the time is up, all the teams must stop writing.

  6. On the board, write Team 1, Team 2, Team 3, etc.

  7. Ask each team to read out a word and write it under that team. Once a word has been written on the board, another team may not use it.

  8. Keep going, until all the teams run out of words.

  9. The team with the most words wins that round.

  10. You can obviously play this game in any language.
