Name Game with a ball

How to Play:

A new group sits in a circle of not more than sixteen members. One person is given a ball. The ball is passed around the circle and each person who receives it says his name very clearly (usually just the first name). When everyone has been named and the ball returns to the first person, he or she throws it to any person. The receiver must say the thrower's name. The ball is then thrown to someone else who must say the next thrower's name. If a person cannot remember the name of the person who has thrown the ball to him/her, s/he must ask and repeat the name before proceeding with the activity. The game continues until everyone can remember the names in their group.
