Default A writing game for adults. 'One dream'

Have you ever tried this one Clive? It's called 'One dream' perfect for adults especially those already working.

You need a nice prize. pick a sum of money; 1million US dollars, RMB, Yen, etc.
Each student has to write on a piece of paper an elaborate plan of what he or she would do with such a sum of money.
They don't have to write their names. But they have to use numbers for names.
Announce the sum of money to them and get them writing. At the end all the papers are collected read out and two persons with the same dream are declared winners and given the prize.
If you have more than two persons with the same dreams you will have to find little differences to eliminate them until you settle on two.
The most exciting experience I had in this game was when a couple ended up as winners. The husband and the wife all had the same dream plan for the money. Everyone clapped for them.
If you happen to use it let us know how it goes.

Maybe I am just tired but I don't understand what you mean by
"They don't have to write their names. But they have to use numbers for names."
Do you mean instead of "Bob, Bill and Ted" they use No. 1, 2 and 3?

Yes.
They use numbers in order to create good suspense when the plans are being read out to the rest of the class. When you announce the winning numbers (Two persons with the same or a similar dream) the moment of suspense is just great when everyone else waits for them to own up.

I like this; it is a subtle way of turning a writing exercise on the conditional into a game.
