Immediate Preparation (1-2 minutes). Ask the players to take it in turns saying what they could not do a decade ago, but can do now. For giving an example, you say, e.g.: 'A decade ago I could not play tennis, but I can do it now!'.

How to Play. The game may start like this:

Player A: 'A decade ago I could not drive a car, but I can do it now!'.

Player B: 'A decade ago I could not bake cakes, but I can do it now!'.

and so on.

Of course, the sentences should not be repeated! A player, who can not say an appropriate sentence, leaves the game, which lasts as long as only the winner remains.
