Head, Body and Legs

This is a game in which the paper is divided into three parts. One person draws a head on the top third, folds the paper so as to conceal what they have drawn, then passes it on to a second person who draws the body without knowing what the head looks like. A third person draws the legs in a similar way before the strange creature they have created is revealed.
