The Memory Tray Game

Before guests arrive, fill a tray with 25 small household objects — think coins, scissors, thread, jewellery, or anything else small yet distinctive. Once you’re ready, cover the tray with a scarf or a napkin, set it on the coffee table, and give each guest a pen and a piece of paper. Remove the scarf and give them 60 seconds to concentrate on the objects without writing them down, then cover the tray again and ask them to list as many objects as they can. When everyone has finished, remove the scarf once more, ask who listed the most items, and have him or her read the list aloud to check.
