Days of the Week

This game will have EVERYONE off their feet. Its a game that's youth and young adult friendly (combined) also, for large amounts of people.

Here's how the game works...

There are 7 rows of chairs and each row have up to 3-5 chairs... (depending on how many people you have.)

The 1st row of people are called Sunday.
2nd row- Monday
3rd row- Tuesday
4th row- Wednesday
5th row- Thursday
6th row- Friday
7th row- Saturday

The person in charge of this icebreaker calls out any day of the week besides Sunday.

For instance, he/she calls out Wednesday... in CHRONOLOGICAL order the people from Wednesday moves up to the first row, and Thursday to the 2nd row, Friday to the third and so forth.

Now it looks like this...

row 1- Wednesday
row 2- Thursday
row 3- Friday
row 4- Saturday
row 5- Sunday
row 6- Monday
row 7- Tuesday

The person who sits in their row last, everyone in that row is out. Even though that row is empty keep playing because it gets their brain a workout as well as their body.

You repeat this process until the last row wins.

Try a couple of practice games before doing elimination round so the kids get the hang of the game. Once they get the game its upbeat and they'll want to do it over and over again.

This is a great game to get the kids up and going and they'll have everything out of their system. Anyway, I hope this helps. :)

Days of the week seem to be a very interesting game. This game keeps the players busy and very active and open minded. The blog is nice. But the latest trend is, it has indoor games as a big and upcoming topic of discussion. In which different indoor fun games are discussed and people share the games.
