Immediate Preparation (1-2 minutes). First write on the board a topic for discussion, e.g.: 'Living in a big city'. Next ask each player to object to the previous speaker.

How to Play. The game may start like this:
You: Living in a big city gives more job opportunities!

Player A: Yes, but big cities are too polluted!

Player B: Yes, but they offer a lot of amusements!

and so on.

A player, who can not say an appropriate phrase, leaves the game, which lasts as long as only the winner remains.

Other possible topics of discussion: 'Having a pet', 'Travelling by train', 'Working with a friend'.
