Then, one person in the circle begins by turning to the person on his/her right and making a face - it could be an emotional face or a funny face. The next person then makes another face and passes it to the person next to him/her, and so on. The expressions should not be copied, but variations of a theme be explored instead, such as each one thinking of a different emotional or funny face.

Instead of sending Silenus away King Midas invited him to stay and enjoy his hospitality.
The god Dionysus was pleased Midas has
helped his friend and offered to grant Midas a wish.
King Midas wishes that everything he touched would turn to gold. Then he would be the richest man in the world.
The god kept his promise and sure enough, everything Midas touched turned to gold. He went around his palace using his new power.
But Midas' wish turned against him. He found that he couldn't eat or drink as his food and wined turned to gold when he touched it!
Midas begged Dionysus to remove the spell.
Dionysus told Midas how he could get rid of the gift.
Midas washed his 'golden touch' away in the river Pactolus. Even now the soil along the riverbank has a golden gleam.
Cartoon by Gareth Pitchford
There was a king named Midas who lived long ago when gods and goddesses still roamed the earth. King Midas was famous for his piety, but also for his wealth and parties, and so one day the god Bacchus paid Midas a visit in the hopes of being entertained. The god was not disappointed.
For ten full days and ten full nights, King Midas held a joyful festival in honor of the god, and the god and all the king’s subjects reveled in the feasts and celebrations offered in worship to the revered Bacchus.
Bacchus was so pleased with the treatment he had received that at the end of the tenth day, the god granted Midas his choice of whatever reward he wished. Midas, swelling with pride in his wealth, sought to expand the vastness of his riches. Therefore, he asked that whatever he touched be turned to gold.
Bacchus granted Midas his wish and left the kingdom. The instant Bacchus left, Midas was eager to test his new power. He saw a stone in his garden and touched it. Sure enough, it changed into gold! He then touched a tree, a flower, a bush. They too transformed into gold. So he touched some birds in their nest and a stream of water that ran through his garden and the statues at his gate, and all these things began to shine as intensely as the gold bricks that lay in his treasury. Overjoyed, Midas stepped inside his home to tell his daughter Zoë about his remarkable new gift. Without thinking, he went to hug her, and the minute he touched her skin she turned into a golden statue, as cold and as lifeless as the statues that stood in his garden.
Horrified by what he had done, Midas now hated the gift that he had cherished just moments before. He prayed to Bacchus, begging to have his daughter returned to him and to have his dangerous new ability taken away. Bacchus, who felt pity for Midas – and was still thankful for that awesome party – heard the king’s prayer and consented to take away his golden touch. Midas’s power left him, and everything he had turned to gold, including his daughter, was restored to its original condition. Midas gave his daughter a joyful hug in celebration, and vowed to hold a festival for twenty days the next time Bacchus paid a visit.
