To switch up this game, groups can begin in pairs. Pairs will introduce themselves, and play a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors against each other. Losing individuals must cheer for the winner, using their name, in another match. Winners keep playing, and collecting cheerers. This will continue until everyone is on one team, or has played.
