Old School Party Games


13 HIM’s joined YHC on his birthday for a little fun and excitement. YHC decided to bring back some old school party games for this celebration. The PAX departed at 530 with a twinkle in their eye eager to see what YHC would come up with.

Warm Up:

Mozey down to the track and jog 1 lap, then circle up. There was a bit of concern that YHC had a long run in store, but fears were calmed. Warm up exercises included Side Straddle Hops, Don Q’s, Windmills, Cherry Pickers, Merkins, LBC’s and Freddie Mercury’s. YHC nailed the counting despite the attempted sabotage. Off to the field for

Duck Duck Goose: For the exercise, PAX circled up and as the person was walking/ducking around the circle, PAX performed squats. Per the original children’s game, once the person walking/ducking Goosed someone, a chase would ensue around the circle back to the original spot. Round 2, PAX held plank while the game of Duck Duck Goose went on. Two observations, 1) Oyster is deceptively fast 2) Darkness made this game a little difficult.

Three Legged Race: This game was repurposed into a traditional triple check with one runner, one merkins, one WWII’s. Once completed, we mozeyed to the tennis courts.

Sack Race: Very simple, make believe you have a sack and broad jump across the tennis courts. This led to

Relay Race: Sprints back and forth across the tennis court with the losing team assigned 5 burpees. Both teams were winners or losers and the entire PAX completed the burpees. From here, we mozeyed to the bottom of the hill for…

Red Light/Green Light: 4 rounds of red light / green light starting with lunges, 50% jog, 75% job and then a 100% sprint. There was a little time remaining and YHC thought he’d have the chance for 1 more 100% sprint, but sensing a slight mutiny we headed back to the flag for 46 WWII’s on your own until time was called.

Numberrama / Namearama and YHC took us out in prayer.

I am thankful for your friendship and the laughs that we have shared. Thanks for letting me lead!
