This is a great icebreaker game for large groups, although it is fun for family gatherings, church parties and other occasions.

1. Each player is given five beans (or other similar, small items).

2. Players move around the room and talk to other players. During the conversation, players try to make the other player say either "Yes" or "No". Players can use alternative answers (such as "Not at the moment" instead of "No") but must give honest answers.

3. Any player who says "Yes or "No" must receive a bean from the player who asked the question.

4. The first player to give away all their beans wins the game.
