Setup: Have everyone gather together in the middle of the room facing you on stage or at the front.

Introduction: (Read Aloud) “Your job is to do exactly as the Caller says. Each command is very specific. You should try to work as a team. It’s ok to work with other teams, just be careful you don’t get left out! Whoever is left at the end, their team scores 10 points! Let’s practice!”

Goal: Be the last player standing.

Instructions: Caller will call out one of several things. If they don’t do what you call, they are out. You can play several times. Start with a test play. Start with Phase 1 only and add new phases. Be creative, invent your own. This game is hilarious and encourage the players who are out to help judge those who are still in.

Ocean: Player must run to the left of the room.
Sky: Player must jump in place.
Dark: Player must stand as a statue and may not move until “Light” is called.
