Zip Zap - free family-game idea sheet

7-10 year olds | half hour

This incredibly simple game works better with a larger group of people, but can still be a great test of quick-thinking and memory, even with less people.

What You'll Need

  • A large group of people
  • Quick hands
  • Quick minds


Form a circle with the leader in the centre. When he points to someone and says "zip!" the player must give the name of the person on his right before the leader counts to five. If the leader says "zap!" the player must name the person on his left. Anyone who gives the wrong name or is too slow must sit down. Last one standing wins.
