The I Can Play the Pen Game requires a pen and creative thinking
This is a group puzzle or riddle game and goal is for each person in the circle to figure out the puzzle.
Take the pen and start by saying the phrase, “Okay, I can play the pen game, can you play the pen game?”
While doing this, use the pen the point at people like you would for “eenie meenie miney mo.”
Then encourage the person you are pointing at last to try it. They will likely say the phrase without the word okay.
So when they say “I can play the pen game, can you play the pen game?” You have to reply, “No, you can’t. “
The key is that each person must figure out that they must say the word “okay” in order to be successful in playing the pen game.
Once they figure it out, they should not reveal how they figured it out. The goal is for everyone to figure out how to play the game on their own.
