1. Each person secretly writes a list of five things they like and five things they do not like. For example, one player may write the following list;

    Like: Apples, rain, books, fishing, Christmas
    Dislike: Politicians, winter, traffic lights, the colour blue, this game!

2. The lists are collected and one person reads them out. Everyone tries to guess who the person is by their list.

3. There are no winners or losers in this game. Family members or good friends may need to make their list a little harder for other players to guess, but they must still be truthful!
