Remembering the Names

This is particularly relevant for a group sitting in a circle.
This is how the exercise goes.
Everyone says their name and one more thing.
For example: Say your name + a hobby.

Instead of a hobby, you could present something else of your choice.

So, the first person presents his or her name and hobby. The second person presents his or her name and hobby, and also the name and hobby of the first person. The third person presents his or her name and hobby, and also the name and hobby of the first and second person.

And so on.

True, it’s not fair, because the people at the end have to remember a lot more names and hobbies, but who said life is fair?
