Bring Me on a Silver Platter…

June 14th, 2017

Set Up and Rules of the Game

The group is divided up into 2-4 teams and into the 2-4 corners. There needs to be an adult leader in every corner with every team, with a game leader in the middle of the room.

The game leader in the middle will announce a person(s) that needs to be brought to them on a “silver platter” (rolling scooter, gym-class style), based on what they announce (see list of suggestions below).  The first team to get their person on the platter (scooter), pushed out to the leader in the center, and touch the leader wins a point for their team. Depending on the size of your group and teams you can make the rule that a player can only be brought to the center once/twice, during the game, so the same player can not be going out over and over.
