Recreation Therapy Ideas: Ante Up

Recreation Therapy Ideas: Ante Up | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Size of Group: small to large
Equipment: a jar of pennies (about 25 per person and 100 more for the "pot"), questions written on index cards beforehand
Objective: increase socialization
Description: Residents sit around a table. Each has 25 pennies placed in front of him/her. The "pot" of pennies is placed in the middle. Each resident takes turns reading a card and following the directions on it. Each card tells the reader to either give or take a penny. The resident with the most pennies at the end "wins", but this is also just a fun socializing game and is good for ice breakers too. Very quick to organize after you've done it once. 
Ariana Amorim's insight:

Great ice breaker. A fun socializing game.

The name of the game is "Who's Game is it Anyway?"  It's a conglomeration of  a bunch of games all pulled together into one:  "Who's Line is it Anyway? (the title), Jeopardy, Minute To Win It, Pictionary, Family Feud, Monopoly, and The Price Is Right.  It's also loosely based on the board game Cranium.
