The Last Word (game)

Instructions: Players stand in a circle. The first player moves and stands randomly in front of another, and make a random statement (e.g., “It is such a lovely day”). The player spoken to will move to another person and make a statement starting with the last word in the statement he or she received (e.g., “Day one of the course was very tiring”). Each participant takes turns to ensure that everybody gets a chance to participate.

Balloon Battle (game)

Game Style: Energizer

Players: 2+

Materials: Balloons, String

Instructions: Players have an allotted amount of time to protect their team’s balloons. Each player ties a balloon to their left foot (or long balloons can used, and wrapped around the player’s leg). With larger groups, players are divided into teams. The game can also be played as a free-for-all, depending on your intention for the game. (Here’s a key point to this energizer: the rules are not to pop other balloons, but merely to protect your own. If no one moves, everyone wins.)
