Pre-teach the vocabulary: friend, teacher, brother, sister, mother, father, hero and pet. They will probably know most of these anyway.
Hand out the worksheet and run through the dialogue between Mario and Luigi. Mario is introducing Peach and Luigi is introducing Yoshi. Tell the students they have to find out the relationship to each of the 16 characters written below the dialogue.
Give the students a card each and model the dialogue with the JTE:
The students have to mingle and say the dialogue with their friends using the card they have. Then they can fill in the sheets according to their partners answers. After they say the dialogue with their friend, they exchange cards and move onto the next friend. Exchanging the cards ensures they aren't on auto-pilot for the entire game.
After 8 minutes is up, call "Stop!" and the students who filled in most of the blanks on the sheet are the winners and receive a character sticker.
Scott's Version: I made a new version of the attachment. I used a cartoon of myself for one of the characters, so I deleted that character and left space for ALTs that might use my version to draw themselves. There are 3 rare cards (Luigi, ALT, and Chopper <-- 1 each), 28 common cards (Peach, Koopa, Wario, Pikachu, Doraemon, Dorami, Harry Potter, Ace, Kitty-chan, Snoopy, Donkey, Sazae-san, Namihei, Donald Duck <-- 2 each), and 9 very common cards (Mario, Luffy, Usopp <-- 3 each). This game went over very well, but there was more than a little cheating. The student(s) with the most characters, plus any students that had all 3 rare characters got 1 stamp each. It only happened twice, but students who collected all the characters got 2 stamps. The students had 10 minutes and they were all talking.
