1-10

This game sounds very simple but it can be very tricky! 


Number of people: 3+ 

Game objective: To reach 10 


How to play: 

As a group, you need to get to number 10 saying one number at a time each without speaking at the same time or repeating a number. 

Don’t count in order, anyone can say any number - but you can’t say 2 numbers in a row.

If more than one person speaks at once or a number is repeated, you start back at 1. 


Level up: 

Try and reach 20, or even 30!
