You need a small pot (or a plastic bag, container, etc.), two sheets of blank paper and a pen per player.
Each player gets their two sheets of paper and pen, and cuts or tears one of the sheets into 12 small pieces of equal size.
Then everyone, without showing to others, writes a random word (could be nouns, adjectives, verbs) on each piece, folds and puts it into the pot.
Once all pieces are in the pot, one of the players draws four from the pot and reads the words out loud.
Now all players, using at least three of these four words, try to come up with a creative and fun fictitious saying (a proverb or an idiom) and what it means. Additional words can be
used to make up the perfect adage.
When everyone is finished, the brand new yet immemorial sayings full of metaphors and wisdom are read out one at a time. If it is not obvious to everyone, the author explains the use or moral
of the saying.
After all adagia are read and discussed, the group chooses the best adage of the round. The author gets one point.
Then a new round begins by drawing another four words from the pot.
The game continues this way until the pieces in the pot are over.
Whoever got the most points... is a four-leaf clover.
