Copyright © 2014 Emma Gore-Lloyd I found this game on a party games website sometime a couple of years ago.

Wooden Spoon Speculations

It’s a guessing game that works well in a class of students who are fairly comfortable with each other and have a good sense of humour. Students can use it to practise speculative language. Equipment needed: 2 wooden spoons; one scarf/blindfold First, elicit speculative language from the students, eg. Next, ask for or choose a volunteer (probably best to choose one of the most outgoing students here). Give the blindfolded student the two wooden spoons, one in each hand. Once they’ve made their guess, they can take off the blindfold and see if they were right. Replay the game with the second volunteer as the blindfolded player and choose another student to be guessed, until they’ve all had a go (or at least all the ones that are up for it).

Sometimes maps don't help, so you have to ask somebody for directions. If you're in a country where they don't speak your language, this can be difficult.
