I saw this game on the Faith Finding Words blog. This game is known as Psychiatrist. I’m calling it Dr. Fixie to keep students who are seeing a psychiatrist from feeling awkward. I’m probably thinking too much but whatevs.

Send one person out of the room and out of earshot – he/she is the psychiatrist. While the psychiatrist is out, come up with an ailment that everyone is suffering from (fear of shoes, obsessed with an object in the room, belief that someone lives in our armpits, etc.). Bring the psychiatrist back in. As they are coming back in, everyone begins to act out the ailment (without being too obvious). The psychiatrist has 3 chances to guess what the ailment is. Let the old psychiatrist pick a new one each round. Play 5 or 6 rounds (don’t let it go too long – always kill a game before it could get boring!).

    We pay this one regurly. Our favorite illness is when everyone thinks they are the person to their right. This is a classic game but it gets a little boring if your group is to big.
