How to Play

  1. Each player comes up with a new way to greet someone that doesn't involve touching. Each greeting should have a sound and a gesture.
  2. One player does their greeting and then the others do it back, until everyone has shown off their greetings.
  3. Come up with greetings where people do not touch one another (e.g. to say goodbye) and make up gestures and sounds you can do instead.


  • Why is it important not to touch one another while greetings?
