Setup: 

1. Place all the chairs in a circle and have one player sit in each chair.
2. Have the team leader stand in the center of the circle. Make sure when they talk they can be heard.
3. Make sure everyone knows their left from their right.

How to Play: 

1. The leader will call our a command, such as "Everyone who is wearing green, move one chair to the right." The players wearing green would then move one chair to the right.
2. If there is someone sitting in the new chair, the incoming player shares the chair.
3. The leader continues calling out orders, with players either finding seats, sharing seats, or stacking upon one another.
4. Play as long as you like; usually 10 minutes is a good length of time.

Variations: 

1. Instead of sharing seats, the player should find the next available empty seat (that way no one has to share chairs... but there will still be lots of fun scrambling).
2. Instead of having the players share a seat, have them instead introduce themselves to the seated player, learn a fact about that player, then find the next available seat. Take some time after the game has finished playing for players to share their learned knowledge.
3. When a player stands up to move and finds the new chair is already occupied, they can either choose to return to their own chair (if they can reach it before someone else takes it) or they can ask the seated player to nicely "take a hike," in which case the seated player jumps up and tries to find the first available seat. If the player chooses to return to his/her own seat, but someone has taken it before they get there, they must find another seat elsewhere. Players can of course race each other to their seats... whichever player gets their entire bottom onto the chair seat first claims the seat.

Tips: 

1. Start with things that apply to everyone in the group. For example, everyone wearing clothes, everyone who is over a certain age, everyone who knows who Justin Bieber is... just until people get the hang of it. Then start mixing in more unique items.
2. Personalize to your group and their particular tastes, etc.
