For instance, you can prance up and down from Prancer, put a fist over the nose for Rudolf, use your hands as antlers for Donner and so on. You must run through these gestures several times so that each of the participants is well accustomed to it.
  2. Now the players have to stand in a circle or sit around a table. The first player has to make eye contact with another player and take one of their reindeer’s names. The player then has to make the gesture decided for that reindeer. Then he has to make eye contact with another player and repeat the same procedure.
