Look up, Look down

In a circle everybody look at the floor.
The leader then clicks fingers or says "Look up!" and everyone must look at somebody in the circle.
If two people are looking at one another they can sit down or step back from the circle to show they are out
The leader then says Look Down! and everyone looks down and on the Look up command the process is repeated.
The object of the game is to get out first so you want to get eye contact with someone.
Emphasize that once you have looked up you cannot change your focus onto someone else.

At the end of the exercise it is good to ask everyone how they felt playing the game.
Was there any anxiety about not catching peoples eyes?
How did it feel when you connected with someone who was looking back at you?
Did anyone find the game uncomfortable? Why?
