Number Circle

by Kit

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.

Have a look at Cod, Fish, Whale for an alternative version of this game.
