All the players sit on chairs, forming a circle, except for one who stands in the middle of the circle. The player in the middle goes to one of the people sitting in the circle and asks: “How are you?” There are three possible answers, each of them with a special rule:
- If the player on the chair answers “I’m doing great!”, nothing happens.
- If the answer is “I’m OK.” the two players to the left and right of the one who answered have to try to switch places, while the player in the middle tries to occupy one of their chairs. One of these three players will inevitably remain without a seat and will continue the game by asking another player in the circle the same question.
- If the answer is “I’m not well.” everybody has to switch places. The one remaining without a seat will continue the game by asking the question.
