A piece of paper is folded into the same number of sections as there are participants.
The paper is unfolded and given to the first player, who draws in the first space, spontaneously, leaving slight traces of lines extending into the next section. The player then folds the paper over to hide what he or she drew.
Each player continues the drawings in their successive section, taking cues from the bits of lines that their predecessor left visible.
When the last player has finished, the sheet is opened to reveal the full drawings.
