Change Three Things

Summary: This game tests players’ memories by seeing if they can find changes in someone’s outfit.


  1. Begin the game by asking for a volunteer to come to the front of the room.
  2. Tell the other players to observe this volunteer’s appearance (jewelry, clothing, hair style, etc). Give the group enough time to observe the volunteer.
  3. Have the volunteer leave the room and change 3 things about their appearance. When the volunteer comes back in, have players guess what 3 things have changed. Once every change has been guessed (or the group is stumped) pick another volunteer.


  • Have the group split into pairs. Each pair can take turns being the guesser and the changer. Have all of the changers leave the room and re-enter the room at the same time. See which guesser can find all three changes first.
