Have something done bluffing card games

Start a sentence with “I have…” or “I…” without “have”, pick a card at random, complete your sentence with what it says on that card and perhaps “my own” or “myself”, even if it is not true. For example, say “I”, pick the “massage your shoulders”, and say “I massage my own shoulders”. After follow-up questions, your partner will guess if your sentence is true or not.

Ask about cards you don’t understand, guessing if your teacher does that themselves or not each time. Then switch groups. Play a similar game with the cards you didn’t understand before. This time pick a card first, flip a coin, and say this:

heads = say “I have… done”                                                tails = say “I… (my own…/ myself)”
