Reaction Game

  • Form groups of 6-12 people
  • Have players create events and write them down on small sheets of paper. Be sure that they don't share these ideas aloud with anyone
  • Creativity is a MUST for this game :)
  • Here are some examples of events:
  1. Being attacked by a shark while you're fishing
  2. Hitting a home run that wins the World Series
  3. Winning the lottery
  4. Going on a first date
  • After everyone is done writing, collect all of the papers and put them in a hat.
  • Whithin each group, choose 3-4 people to act for each round.
  • Players will randomly draw from the hat
  • Players will be given 30 seconds to 1 minute to act out a reaction to the event that they drew
  • Players can use "Charades" rules, but they may also make noises and talk to the other actors (without giving the scenario away) 
  • After time is up, the other team members can guess at which event each person had.
  • You may keep score if you'd like, or just enjoy the entertainment!
