As you participate in the Revolution livestream with your group, at various times throughout the event, there will be opportuinties for some downtime where we will be playing games from the stage at the livestream. It is our hope that if you are gathered together with your group to watch the event, that you would have your group play along. If you are not gathered together, we hope that you will enjoy watching the zaniness that ensues on the livestream. In order to help you prepare to offer the games to your group at your location, below are descriptions of the games that we will play along with any supplies you would need. Feel free to print this page if need be. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Minute to Win It Shenanigans:
Cookie Monster – Each player places a cookie on her forehead, and the goal is to get the cookie into her mouth using only facial muscles in under one minute. No hands. This is tougher than it looks! Supplies needed: Cookies & timer.
Shamrock Shake – Tape an empty Kleenex box to a pair of panty hose, fill with ping pong balls, then tape around someone’s waist. They have to shake until all the balls fall out. Supplies needed: Empty rectangular tissue boxes for each player, 10 ping pong balls per player, elastic or panty hose for each player, duct tape, timer.
Rice Bowl – Use chopsticks to transfer as much rice as possible from one bowl to another with one hand. (Hint: use uncooked rice so the texture makes the rice difficult to maneuver.) Supplies needed: Pair of chopsticks per player, two plastic bowls per player, 1c. uncooked rice per player, timer.
Duct Tape Roundup:
The game starts with the floor littered with little toy bugs and the only way to pick them up is to wrap duct tape around your teammate (sticky side out) and let them roll around for 60 seconds. Whoever gets the most bugs to stick to them wins!
- Duct Tape. Play with 2-4 teams competing head to head. You will need 1 roll of Duct Tape per team. That should be enough, but it’s always good to have some back up rolls ready.
- Toy Bugs (or other small toys – army men/dinosaurs/etc). I found some cheap plastic bugs at Target for couple bucks a bag. The more bugs/toys the better.
Play with teams of 2 going head to head. The toys are scattered all over the floor before the clock starts. We started the clock at 60 seconds and then teams begin to wrap their tape around one of their teammates (sticky side out). Each team has only 60 seconds to get their teammate wrapped. The more tape, the better! Each team then has 30 seconds to roll around and try to pickup toys from the floor. Whichever team gets the most toys to stick to them wins! Game facilitator should count toys at the end.
