The Chair Game


A chair per player

Game Description

Each player stands behind a chair which are arranged in a circle, with the chairs facing in.

On a shout of "1", the players move one chair to the left.

On "2" the players move one chair to the right.

On "3" the players sit down on the chair they should be standing behind.

The last person to sit down in the correct chair stays sitting down and that chair must then be avoided by everyone else.

Common shout would be "1,1,1,2,2,1,3!" etc...

If this gets too easy, reverse the meaning of "1" and "2" half way through the game

Sturdy chairs are required if playing with Scouts!
