One Chair per player
A pack of Playing cards

Game Description

Each person sits on their chair in a circle facing outwards and is given a suit in turn, diamonds - spades - hearts - clubs - diamonds - spades - hearts etc.

The pack of cards is given a good shuffle then the cards turned over in turn and the suit called out. Each time a players suit is call out they move one chair clockwise around the circle. If the next seat is taken no matter they just sit on the persons lap! Players may only move if they have not got someone sitting on them! The winner / winners are the first ones back to their chairs.

It seems to get more fun the greater the number of people sat on one person there is!!!

By calling our suits in quick succesion, some scouts may be able to move before they are sat on.
