Directions: Assemble a fun group of friends, family, co-workers, etc… A volunteer leaves the group while those remaining decide on a gesture or position that the volunteer should strike. For example, the group may decide that the volunteer should salute or touch her toes. When the volunteer returns to the group, she randomly strikes different poses. As she gets “warmer”, the group claps louder and more frequently until clapping reaches a crescendo when the correct pose is reached.
Suzanne’s Notes: This game is really great! It’s fun to be part of the frantically clapping audience with the cooperative goal of helping the volunteer find his way. When you’re the volunteer, you get lots of supportive attention as well as perhaps good-natured ribbing! I have had lots of success with it at family holiday gatherings of mixed-age players.
