Game Requirments

If you have more than 15-20 people you may want to break up into separate groups to play.

Game Objective

To get out of the middle and not be "it".

Game Rules

Have the players stand in a circle and designate someone to be “it.” That person stands in the middle of the circle.

The Goal of the person in the middle is to get out of the middle. He/She does this by standing in front of a player and says a action.

If the action is done correctly the person in the middle moves onto another player. If the action is done incorrectly the players switch spots.

These are the actions:

When the middle person says “VIKING” the player he/she is talking to puts their index fingers on their head like 2 horns and says, “I’m a Viking! A mighty, mighty Viking.” The people on the right and left of the player who is a Viking, row like they are on a boat.

When the middle person says “COW” the player he/she is talking to puts their knuckles together in a fist with the thumbs down (like an utter) and says “MOO” while the people on the left and right take hold of the "utter's" fingers and milk.

When the middle person says “ELEPHANT” the player brings their left arm to the top of their head and puts their right arm through their left like a trunk. While the people on the left and right act as ears by making “C” shapes with their arms toward the “elephant’s” head.

When the middle person says, “BOP” the player doesn’t talk.

When the middle person says, “BIBBITY BOP” the player has to say “BOP” before the “caller” finishes saying “BIBBITY BOP”

If a player does not do the action in time 1-5 seconds depending on how familiar they are with the game, or a player on either side doesn’t do the action they are in the middle. Or if a person says something when they are not supposed to, as in the case of BOP then they are in the middle they are out.

Play long enough that people get the hang of it, but not too long that it gets boring. Be ready to start the next game in about 15-20 mins.
