Master Master, Who Am I?

Summary

A game to encourage accent, a silly voice or character to disguise your identity.

How Do I Play It?

Start in a Drama circle.

Choose one participant to be Master and to be blindfolded. Tell the Master they are to listen carefully and try to identify the owner of the mysterious voice.

Choose another member to say the words "Master, Master, Who am I?" in a different voice. The blindfolded Master has to guess who is speaking.

Tips

Adapt the words, or the style of voice to suit the text or material in the session that follows.

Variations

Use the words "Squashed Tomatoes!" for younger participants.

Games could be a beginning starter, an introducing step during a workshop or as an end plenary. They are a platform for further development and are never meant to be the whole session on their own.

The nature of drama games is that they are shared, adapted and extended. The original author is not so important as the shared practice. You’ll find games on the site that you’ve seen before, called something different or that you even use in your own teaching toolkit.

We hope that among the known games are ideas of how to refresh old ones as well as new games to use.
