Numbered Seats

A game with no end, no winner and the ability to cause headaches after only a few minutes play. Numbered Seats is a great party game for groups of any age.
Get ten chairs and arrange them into a horseshoe formation. Number them 1 to 10. Partygoers sit on a chair (remembering its number).
One person starts by calling out a number (between 1 and 10) and the person occupying that chair must call out another number...and so on. But, one must NOT call out:- one's own number, a number directly next to you either on your right or left, or the number that called you. This makes the game considerably more interesting and difficult.
Even better, if someone gets it 'wrong' (either forgetting to call, calling when not required or any of the above 3 conditions) then they must move to chair number 1 or 10 (the chairs at the ends of the horseshoe arrangment). All other players must then shift positions to accomodate this person and hence change their assigned numbers.
A good idea is to play along to a metronome so that each player has to respond by a set number of clicks.
The game continues.... may stop if anyone jumps up and shouts, "I can't take this anymore!" and storms out of the room.
