Needs a relatively large group of players. Players spread out into a large circle and can either sit or stand, but it’s important all players do the same.
Each player, in turn, is given a number from 1 to 5 and then repeated around the circle. The leader then calls out a number from 1 to 5 and all those with this number have to run around the outside of the circle and back into the space they vacated. The slowest to finish is out/eliminated and the game carries on until the last players remain.
To make it more fun, multiple numbers can be called out at the same time and for a bit of a mathematics challenge, player numbers are called out as simple sums which they have to work out.
