Take the ‘Heads Up, Seven Up’ game for example. It’s innovative as well as challenging, and has the ability to keep kids interested for at least an hour. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s go over the rules and instructions to play the ‘Head Up, Seven Up’ game, and have a ball.
★ Pick a team of 7 players and ask them to stand in front of everyone. The other players will find a place to sit.
★ One of the 7 players or you (the referee of sorts) says, “Heads down, thumbs up.” At this time, all the seated players will close their eyes and put their heads down on the table or a pillow. Next, they will stretch their right arm out and keep the thumb up as well. As they do this, make sure all the seated players have their eyes closed and no one is peeking.
★ One by one, each of the 7 standing players will walk around the room quietly and touch one seated player’s thumb or tap on the back.
★ As and when the seated players’ thumbs get touched, they will keep their heads down and lower their thumbs.
★ The 7 players will go back to their starting position, standing in front of everyone.
★ Again, one of the 7 players or the referee will say, “Heads up, seven up.”
★ All the players will raise their heads. However, the players whose thumbs are down will stand up as well.
★ Once they are standing in their place, each player has to guess which of the 7 standing players touched their thumb.
★ If a seated player guesses correctly, he/she will take that standing player’s place. If the guess is wrong, the seated player will have to play the next round.
★ Once everyone is done guessing within the time limit, you can wipe the slate clean and start all over again.
★ Players who have kept their heads down cannot peak or lift their heads to see who tagged them.
★ Each round of the game consists of 10 minutes. So, if the players cannot guess who tagged them accurately within the time limit automatically lose, and will stay in their spots for the second round.
