Great Conversation Game... start the year or get a social group talking.  The website EFL Classroom 2.0 features rules and a supporting slideshow for the game "Pass the Paper," a kind of musical chairs for conversation.  To quote the site:

What is it? Basically, the students are in a group with one crumpled piece of paper among them. The music plays and they “Pass the Paper” . When the music stops, the one with the paper must do something preset by the teacher. It can be many things.

Basically the options all involve using language to interact with group members.  The site has an embedded slideshare presentation that has all the prompts and even the music for you!

Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo for featuring this resource.
