Red Light, Green Light

Posted by Jonathan Guyot Smith on 5:03 with No comments



1. One player stands near a wall and beckons to the others with a call of "Green Light," which prompts them to advance swiftly....or of "Red Light," which means they must freeze in their tracks. 

2. The object of the game is to tag the "caller."  The first player to do so wins the round and becomes the next "caller." 

3. If a player moves, flinches, or advances when "Red Light" is called, he/she is eliminated from the round. 

We hope everyone will enjoy learning to play this popular, traditional game. 

Rock, Paper, Scissors

This well-known game, sometimes used for choosing the leader of some different game or activity, is here demonstrated by Darien High School students.

Rules for Rocks Paper Scissors
Materials: Hand
  1. Find a partner (this is a two person game)
  2. Each player will punch the bottom of their right fists into the palm of their left hand 3 times as they say “rocks, paper, scissors”.
  3. After you pound your first 3 times, say “shoot” immediately after scissors is said. Each player, at the same time, will choose either rock, paper, or scissor.
  4. Rock is shaped like a fist, scissors shape is represented by 2 extended fingers, and paper is a flat palm.
  5. Rock beats scissors, paper beats rock, and scissor beats paper
  6. Players can either play 1 round of best of 3, 5, or 7 to determine the winner
  7. The winner of each game is the person who chooses the winning object (for example, If I choose paper and my partner chooses rock)

Pin the Tail on the Donkey

Here, the rascals of Darien High School demonstrate the ubiquitous birthday party game, played throughout the world by the young-at-heart.

  • A poster of a donkey
  • Some “tails” that will attach to the poster.
  • A blindfold

  1. One person puts on the blindfold and is spun around until they are somewhat disoriented.
  2. The blindfolded person then tries to put the “tail” onto the donkey as close to the donkey’s rear as possible.
  3. Remove the blindfold and observe the results.
  4. Each player goes through steps 1-3 and at the end whoever’s tail is the closest wins!
