Description: Maintaining multiple channels of communication open.
Set-up: Between 6 and 20 players standing in a circle.
Instructions: Players pass the word "custard" around the circle in a fixed circuit, so that they always give and receive the word from the same two people (B always gives it to C and receives it from A - A and C can be anyone but B's neighbours). The circuit ends where it started and keep going in a loop. Once the "fish" circuit is well establish, players create a completely different circuit, following the same rules, with the word "custard". Once the "custard" circuit is well establish, players try to run both "fish" and "custard" circuits simultaneously.
