How to Play. Players A and B come to the front of the class and stand opposite each other. Player A makes any movement, e.g. slaps his/her knees. Then he/she points to himself/herself and says, e.g.: 'I'm Vova!'. After that, Player B repeats the same movement, points to Player B and says:'You are Vova!'. Next Player C replaces Player A and Player B introduce himself/herself in the same way and so on. The game lasts as long as all the ‘members of Moomba-Yumba tribe’ introduced themselves. The main rule is each movement must be unique!
